Selena Gomez Just Wore Her Biggest, Boldest French Manicure Yet

Ahh, l’amour! Isn’t it grand? It is if you’re Selena Gomez, whose latest single “Love On” is a bubbly, sugar-sweet tribute to the joy of romance. And when Gomez drops a new song, everyone pays attention. Gomez’s music is typically fun, flirty, and oh-so-catchy, and her latest single has all those attributes and more. If you’re looking for your spring bop — and hair, makeup, and manicure inspo to match — “Love On” has you covered for the next few months.

Gomez teased the project and its Parisian setting for a few days via Instagram before the song dropped, so we knew it was going to have a retro, French-y feel. Boy, does it ever. Even her nails are French! Gomez wears a bold, chunky French manicure throughout the video, and her go-to nail artist, Tom Bachik tells Allure that that it was the perfect choice for the “super fun video with a French vibe.” Bachik even makes a cameo in the video doing Gomez’s nails as she poses outside in a cute blue dress and fascinator hat perched atop her bob!

First, Bachik prepped Gomez’s nails with his Tweezerman x Tom Bachik Ultimate Nail Care Set, then applied a full coverage tip for more length and a softly rounded square shape. Bachik applied a “luscious” coat of Essie’s classic sheer pink Mademoiselle for a “fresh, clean almohadilla,” then created an “exaggerated, bright white ’90s” tip with Essie’s Blanc and topped the nails with a rich layer of the brand’s Gel Couture Top Coat to seal in the shine.

The mani was a bit of a departure for Gomez, who Bachik says typically prefers a “bit shorter nail with fun, happy colors.” However, because they wanted nails that would work well with her many costume changes, the exaggerated “Love On” French fit the bill perfectly. It’s just a little bit cheeky, much like the video itself. (And as for his cute cameo, Bachik said he was “treated like a star.”)
