Here’s exactly how Selena Gomez’s nail artist created her ‘Bubblegum Disco’ nails

In a sea of milk bath manis, Selena Gomez‘s nails are the moment. The Only Murders In The Building star is ready to party — and so is her manicure, if her new glittery Barbie pink nails are anything to go by.

For her new single Single Soon, Selena and her go-to nail artist Tom Bachik ditched the neutral shades in favour of a “bubblegum disco” set that shimmered just like the upbeat summer pop song.

We got a sneak peek at said manicure a few weeks ago, when Selena teased her Y2K-glam video look on Instagram Stories. It looked perfect with her metallic eyeshadow and messy 2000s updo in the video, making me want to replicate it on my own nails ASAP, despite the fact that I’m happily married and not about to be Single Soon.

Luckily for me (and all of us), Tom is sharing all the details behind Selena Gomez’s glittery mani, including the exact shades he used to turn her nails into a disco celebration.

According to his Instagram, Tom first perfected Selena’s natural nails and cuticles with his Tweezerman Ultimate Nail Care Set.

He then applied Aprés Nail’s Maisie Stiletto GelX Tips and softened the extensions into a delicate squoval “ballerina” shape. Once the extensions were set, Tom painted on a few coats of Aprés Gel Couleur polish in Sweet Cheeks, the ideal light Barbie pink.

For that light-reflecting sparkle, Tom reached for the Rich Girl Retro Color Cube from his collaboration with nail brand Modelones, specifically the glittery Champagne Supernova shade. A top coat sealed the deal and Selena was ready to get her flirt on.

The good new is, you don’t need a celeb manicurist on hand to whip up a similar disco-worthy set for the weekend (or, you know, whenever). All you need is a great pink polish, like Nails Inc’s On Fridays We Wear Pink or OPI’s Feel the Magic!, and a glitter topcoat. Essie’s Nail Polish Luxeffects Top Coat in A Cut Above is a good option.

Or skip the layering and try a built-in glitter formula instead; Maybelline’s Colour Show Nail Polish in Pink Slip is a cheery pink with holographic glitter that makes mimicking Selena’s Single Soon mani super simple.

Ready to dance the night away? Your nails certainly are.
