December is almost upon us, and as part of your Christmas party prep it’s time to start thinking about what your Christmas nail design will be this year.
Although some people love going all out with cute festive designs and nail art, for others a more timeless, subtle look is their go-to, and it looks like Selena Gomez is firmly team traditional when it comes to her Christmas mani.
The singer recently showed off her new nail design courtesy of celebrity manicuristTom Bachik, and she’d opted to put a festive twist on one of the most classic nail colours around.
Showing off her nails as she held her phone in a mirror selfie, Selena had gone for a deep cranberry shade of red that’s perfectly on theme for Christmas whilst still being understated enough to go with any outfit you have planned over the festive period.
The man behind Selena’s impeccable designs is Tom Bachik, who is known for his work on other A-listers like Jennifer Lopez and Margot Robbie, with Tom sharing the snap of Selan’s new nails saying: “Obsessed with this#CranberryMani for@selenagomez.”
Fans flooded the comments with praise, writing: “Selena’s nails look amazing” and “My literal OBSESSION.”
Selena had ditched her longer length in favour of a short, rounded square shape that’s trending right now, with a super glossy finish that adds some extra Christmas shine without resorting to glitter.
The beauty of an all-over colour is that it couldn’t be easier to replicate at home, you just need a steady (ish) hand and a little bit of patience. For Selena’s cranberry mani, you need a red hue that’s slightly darker than the usual vivid red, with a slight burgundy undertone that makes it look rich and warm – perfect for winter.
For a simple nail varnish that’ll give you the look from the comfort of your own home, Nailberry’s L'Oxygéné Oxygenated Nail Lacquer in shade Le Temps Des Cerises, £16 here, is perfect for embodying the moody undertones of Selena’s crimson nails. Finish off with a high-shine top coat like essie’s Gel Couture Clear Nail Polish Top Coat, £7.99 here (was £9.99), that will give it a mirror-like finish.
If you prefer an at-home gel manicure for some added longevity to your mani, Mylee’s Gel Nail Polish in As Red as it Gets, £8.99 here, can be used with a UV gel lamp to replicate Selena’s chic festive nails from the comfort of home, without worrying about them chipping, peeling or snapping before the big day.
