Selena Gomez has slowly but surely been making a return into the spotlight — and her style and beauty game has proven to be as strong as ever. The actor took the 2019 Cannes Film Festival by storm back in May (which, by the way, was her first time at the annual gathering), serving up one killer look after the other. But her fashion and beauty streak didn't end at the French Riviera. Just last week, she was spotted in Manhattan wearing the it-set of the summer, courtesy of STAUD, and most recently, Gomez, well, actually her orange nails, made fans stop mid Insta scroll. Yep, they were that good and quite hard to miss, too.
Throughout the majority of her event outings in May and June, Gomez sported a neutral-hued manicure, but it seems she was craving some serious color on Weds. — can you really blame her, though? Summer is nearing and bright, eye-catching shades are everywhere right now, both in the fashion and beauty world. Case in point: J. Lo's orange Ralph Lauren set and Mandy Moore's blue eyeliner, just to name a few.
On June 19, Gomez's fresh, peach-colored manicure made its official debut on Tom Bachik's Instagram account. The nail pro, who counts the likes of J. Lo, Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum, and Hailee Steinfeld as clients, shared a full-on hand selfie that put the 26-year-old's orange nails on full display.
"@Selenagomez wanted a peachy orange 🍊," he captioned the photo. "How good is this color and nail shape on her though?! #WCW#nailsbytombachik." In short, the poppy shade and the universally-flattering squoval shape — i.e., a square oval form with a flat front and softened corners — is really good.
Gomez isn't the only celebrity to sport a swipe of the citrusy lacquer on her nails. Eva Longoria recently showed up to the screening of Grand Hotel, a show she executive produces, rocking an neon-orange pedicure that offered up an understated way to wear 2019's most traffic-stopping hue. And back in April, Kendall Jenner's orange nails set the beauty world ablaze.
