Selena Gomez's $10 "Supermodel" Nails Look Expensive
Selena Gomez is firmly in her "quiet luxury" era. On Oct. 7, the actor's longtime manicurist Tom Bachik posted a picture of her latest nail look, captioning the photo: "Rare Bombshell Mani 💅." Against the backdrop of a sparkly sweater, Gomez's fresh supermodel nails were front and center, and the entire look just screams old money.
Gomez's manicure was filed into a slightly tapered square shape and painted a translucent shade of pink, courtesy of the Essie Mademoiselle Nail Polish ($10). The shade mimicked the hue of her natural nails perfectly, and the addition of a glossy top coat helped to retain that coveted shine that's become a signature of the trend.
Supermodel nails are a favorite among champions of effortless, minimal beauty. Sofia Richie shocked fans when it was revealed on TikTok that she also uses a $10 nail polish to get the look, and other stars like Hailey Bieber and Anne Hathaway have all been spotted in various versions over the last year. For your own supermodel nails, make sure to stick with neutral tones, and most importantly, pick a lacquer that's transparent enough to have people wondering if you have any color on at all.
