Nail artist Tom Bachik is responsible for the digits of celebrities such as J.Lo, Hailee Steinfeld and Selena Gomez.
He’s also famous for his simplistically chic manicures, and often favours painting his clients’ nails with an understated slick of a single shade over more complicated designs.
Shaky hands and all, we tried desperately to copy the affordable look ourselves, with varying degrees of success.
We naively thought our gig moonlighting as nail techs was officially over, but Bachik has managed to reel us in again with another easy and eye-catching celebrity manicure.
For the premiere of her documentary Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, the nail artist lacquered Gomez’s nails in a vibrant, “sunset yellow for our sunshine girl”.
Maybe it’s the way her manicure provided such a stark contrast to her magenta Rodarte gown, or it’s the imminent approach of summer, but we’re coining sunset nails the manicure trend of the season. In fact, we happen to think they’ll look great wrapped around a summer spritz.
Be it sunshine yellow or golden hour orange, it’s the perfect time to try a sunset shade of nail polish…
