Selena Gomez Bottled Sunshine Then Put It In This Pastel Yellow Manicure

Gather up for a listening party because Selena Gomez will soon be dropping new music. To commence the countdown, manicurist Tom Bachik shared a photo of what might be the exact manicure the artist wore in a yet-to-be-released music video.

On August 24, he introduced the sweet tone of pastel yellow painted on Gomez’s nails, a dose of delight on our Instagram feeds. Bachik wrote, “Calm (Down) Yellow for this ray of sunshine.” Little known fact, there are nail polish colors that actually induce happiness, and yellow absolutely is one of them. 

Bachik kept her nails squoval-shaped and in medium length. In the close-up photo of Gomez’s manicure, she held her hands up against the backdrop of her denim corset top — the exact outfit seen in Gomez’s teaser of the music video for “Calm Down,” a single by Nigerian artist Rema in which Gomez is featured, set to release on August 26.

To get that serotonin pumping, you can look to the Essie Expressie Sk8 With Destiny collection. The shade Sh00k, a creamy, pale yellow, dries within minutes. Allure 2021 Best of Beauty winner Sundays Nail Polish in shade L.04 is both subtle and delicate. Dazzle Dry Polish in shade Frozen Lemonade will give you a glossy and gel-like finish.  

All summer long, Gomez’s manicures have consistently been on our radar. No designs, just set-in-stone colors dedicated to all the seasons. Burgundy, Barbiecore pink, earthy olive, and now an ultra calming pastel yellow have all made their way through her manicure repertoire.
