Selena used Swarovski powder on her crystal nails
Selena Gomez knows how to shine on the red carpet (literally) with a detail as beautiful but subtle as her crystal nails that she took to the Golden Globes. Almost all of Instagram has already used the ‘glazed donut’ trend with that touch of chrome but Selena took it to the next level by using Swarovski powders on her nails!
This nail art was done by Tom Bachik, Sel’s longtime manicurist (and also the man in charge of many designs other celebs are clients of), but in this particular one, her nails featured a mix of super fine glitter and real Swarovski “pixie dust” to get that effect. On Instagram, Bachik shared a full breakdown of his crystal nails along with a close-up of the singer showing off the final result. So take note!
How to get Selena’s crystal nails?
“We wanted to use a softer shade with a bit of shimmer to contrast the deep dark drama of her @maisonvalentino dress 🖤,” part of the caption read. She added that she used Aprés Gel-X extensions in the mid-length of the stiletto to shape the nail. For the base of the nail, I used two thin coats of Aprés Gel Color in Forgotten Film ($15), a creamy neutral. Last but not least, Bachik said: “I added a no-wipe glitter gel coat with #TopCoat and statically layered a fine glitter and pixie dust from @swarvoski to give it some sparkle and dimension.”
The end result makes your nails a reflector of light and sparkles. Would you like to take them?
