Michelle Williams is truly feeling the spirit of spring.
Not only did the former Destiny's Child singer brighten up in a gorgeous pleated yellow gown at BET's 2012 Celebration Of Gospel in L.A. Friday, but she also sported a punchy orange manicure to match.
Williams' tropical manicure happens to be the It color of the year: Tangerine Tango, as chosen by the Pantone Color Institute. We find that orange is the perfect half-way point between a bright fuchsia and a cherry red -- two seasonless hues that seem to be regulars on fingers and toes, year-round.
If you're loving her look, try you hand at these four shades below.

When Tangerine Tango was announced as 2012’s hot color, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a statement, "Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."
