Selena Gomez rocked a French manicure with a hidden twist
Nail art is booming lately, and you don’t have to look any further than Selena Gomez’s recent French manicure to find proof of it. After Rare Beauty Founder Welcomed Global Citizen’s Vax live: The concert to bring the world together, her nail artist Tom bachik gave her IG followers behind-the-scenes snaps that revealed a manicure combining French mod-inspired tips with the glowing red underside of Louboutin Nails.
“French Twist with a Flipside”, Bachik captioned Gomez’s post show off your modeling skills by hand. To get the look, he first used OPI GelColor in Black Onyx for a shiny, dark base. Then he painted a thick moon-shaped curve along the tip of Gomez’s long almond-shaped snails using OPI GelColor in Alpine Snow. As a final touch, he painted the back of each nail with OPI GelColor in Big Apple Red, a fiery and shiny pop that coordinates with her dress. And just like that, your new favorite version of the French manicure was born.
Bachik also made Jennifer lopez nails for the event, painting hers with a sheer neutral topped with holographic glitter. The two performers used their platforms to encourage the public to get vaccinated and inspire world leaders to achieve equity in vaccines.
If you are feeling inspired to get started in the nail art game, there is a lot of inspiration to be found. You can always get artistic and try the watercolor trend, experiment with snaps, have fun with Gigi Hadid-style color, or take inspiration from Billie Eilish and kill off a matching mani-mask combo.
