The $12 Nail Polish Behind Selena Gomez's Reflective Black Manicure
It seems like Selena Gomez is never without a stellar manicure, and even better, a somewhat affordable one. Her recent nail looks — we're talking about her ivy green manicure for the 2022 SAG Awards and her deep-red manicure for the 2022 Critics Choice Awards — have been gorgeous and all cost under $20 to recreate. Now she has yet another simple but gorgeous nail look and… spoiler alert: The nail polish costs just $12.
We all know (and are excited about the fact) that Gomez is hosting Saturday Night Live on May 14, and she gave us a little look at the manicure she will be wearing — or at least the one she wore for her rehearsal on May 12, anyway. Her nail artist, Tom Bachik, posted a video of Gomez in the manicure on Instagram, which she had put on her story earlier that day.
The nails are decently long compared to the ones she normally wears, and they are a soft coffin shape. The color is a jet-black shade, and Bachik revealed in his caption that the exact polish is the Gelux Gel Polish in black from Mia Secret. If these are her natural nails, that length is impressive, to say the least.

But that’s not all from Gomez’s elite beauty look. Her new bob is parted on the left side of her head, and it has some loose curls. For makeup, her brows are brushed out, her eyelids have a bit of neutral-colored eye shadows on them, her eyeliner is winged, and her lips are a nude color. Although we can’t say for sure, it’s probably safe to assume that the makeup products used are from her beauty brand, Rare Beauty.
We are massive fans of all of Gomez's looks, but these nails reign supreme in terms of her longer manicures. Who doesn't love flirting with their darker side a little? With the Only Murders in the Building actor hosting SNL soon, we'll be taking notes on any and all looks she serves, and we suggest you do too.
