Many of the stars in attendance at the 2023 Golden Globes shined on the red carpet, but none could compare to Selena Gomez and her crystal-embellished manicure. The singer and actor arrived in a strapless black gown with ballooning off-the-shoulder purple sleeves by Valentino. Her hair was styled in a Barbie ponytail and her makeup included a soft purple smoky eye (no doubt using a palette from Rare Beauty). All of these details would have been enough to land her on our best-dressed list, but her sparkly manicure really sealed the deal.

Created by Gomez’s long-time manicurist Tom Bachik, the nails featured a mix of fine glitter and real Swarvoski “pixie dust” to get that eye-catching shine. On Instagram, Bachik shared a full breakdown of the manicure along with a close-up of the star showing off the final result.

“We wanted to use a softer shade with a bit of sparkle to contrast the deep dark drama of her @maisonvalentino gown ?,” reads part of the caption. He adds that he used Aprés Gel-X extensions in the medium stiletto length for the nail shape. Two thin coats of Aprés Gel Colour in “Forgotten Film” ($15), a creamy neutral, were used for the base of the nail. Last but certainly not least, Bachik said, “I added a coat of non-wipe glossy gel #TopCoat and statically placed a fine glitter and @swarvoski pixie dust to give a bit of sparkle and dimension.”

The end result caught the light just right, rivaling the shine of the gold trophy itself. Take a look at Gomez’s crystal nails at the 2023 Golden Globes, ahead.
