The 80th Golden Globes Awards on January 10 were a star-studded night complete with quips from host Jerrod Carmichael as well as plenty of awards presented to Angela Basset, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh, and many more well-deserving winners. The glitzy night wasn’t complete without some eye-catching ensembles including Basset’s vintage waves and silver sequin Pamella Roland gown, Laverne Cox’s vibrant blue John Galliano dress with chin-grazing curls, and Selena Gomez‘s strapless duo-toned Valentino gown and crystal-encrusted nude manicure.
Manicurist Tom Bachik, who often works with Gomez alongside J.Lo, Margot Robbie, and others, posted a close-up picture of up of Gomez’s Aprés Gel X almond manicure on Instagram. In a statement, Bachik shared that they chose the nude hue to contrast the dark colors of her gown. Bachik started by installing Aprés Gel X tips in medium stiletto and filing them into a softer almond shape. Then, he applied two coats of the brand’s Gel Colour in the light nude shade Forgotten Film. To give each nail that shimmery textured finish, he used Apres Gel X’s Non-Wipe Glossy Top Gelcoat with fine glitter and Swarvoski Pixie Dust.
