Selena's Heavenly Manicure

On June 30, the talented nail artist, Tom Bachik, posted a photo of Selena Gomez's heavenly manicure on his Instagram, immediately sending fans and beauty enthusiasts into a frenzy.

The result is a heavenly, ethereal effect that's sure to turn heads and make you feel like you're floating on cloud nine.

The Fusion of Trends

Tom Bachik's brilliance shines through in his ability to blend multiple nail trends seamlessly. The "angel nails" technique combines elements of the naked nails trend, resulting in a unique and glitzy yet pared-down look.

The naked nails trend has been making waves on social media platforms like TikTok. It involves wearing either no nail polish or a super sheer one, creating a clean and minimalistic look. Selena's "angel nails" take this trend to new heights, as the holographic sheen adds a touch of allure and sophistication.

How to Recreate the Selena Gomez's "Angel Nails" Look

Want to embrace your inner angel and rock Selena's iconic manicure? Here's a step-by-step guide to achieving the perfect "angel nails" look:

Step 1: Prep and Shape

Start by giving your nails some tender loving care. Trim and shape them into a short, square shape for a classic and elegant appearance. Use the Nail Care Travel Set or your favorite nail care tools to create flawless cuticles and a smooth nail surface.

Step 2: The Base Coat

Apply a base coat to protect your nails and ensure the longevity of your manicure. Any standard pale pink holographic nail polish like the Dazzle Dry Nail Polish in Wink Wink ($22) or the Cirque Colors Sheer Nail Polish in Soleil ($15) will do the trick.

Step 3: The Heavenly Top Coat

The star of the show, Aprés Nail's Heavenly Top Coat in Cherub, comes into play now. Apply this magical top coat to achieve that ethereal holographic sheen that sets the "angel nails" look apart.

Step 4: Seal the Deal

To lock in the heavenly sheen and ensure a long-lasting finish, finish off with a high-shine top coat. This step will make your "angel nails" glisten and shine, just like Selena's.

Final Takeaway

Selena Gomez's "angel nails" manicure has captivated beauty enthusiasts worldwide, and now you have all the secrets to recreate this divine look for yourself. With the fusion of the naked nails trend and the angel nails trend, this ethereal manicure strikes the perfect balance between minimalist elegance and glitzy allure.

Embrace your inner cherub and flaunt your angelic manicure that will make you feel like you've floated straight down from heaven.
