There is a long list of things to love about Selena Gomez (that voice for a start), her honesty when it comes to all things mental health, her ability to poke fun at herself and her exquisite style when she dons the red carpet. Yet true Selena stans will also tell you it's her breathtaking beauty looks that cement her status as one of the world's most revered women.

Aside from her signature cat eye and glossy skin, Selena knows how to rock a good mani. Most recently, her Golden Globe nail look was so impressive, it's set to become Spring’s biggest manicure trend, known as “Naked Disco”.

This got us thinking about all the other nail looks she's rocked over the years and it turns out, we're not the only ones. Diving into her nail archives, beauty retailer Nails has found Selena Gomez’s 5 most loved nail looks of all time. Analysing 198 nail designs worn by Gomez as well as posts by her nail artist Tom Bachik, they've uncovered her most popular nail looks to date based on the number of likes.

1.Iconic bright red

Selena’s most liked look on Tom Bachik’s Instagram is her iconic bright red with over 63.5k likes. The post that received this attention was published only a couple of weeks ago on March 1st 2023, a time where Selena over took Kylie Jenner to become the world's most followed woman on the gram.

While the look was originally posted in November 2020, the professional nail artist is prone to a throwback picture of his client's nails.

Liana Thomson, nail expert from Nails says The nail trend to watch out for this spring is a simplistic bright red look. Red nails have long been a manicure classic so we would not be surprised to see this timeless shade pop up on a lot of hands in the coming months.'

2. Glossy emerald green

Selena’s second most popular nail look was the one she wore in the music video for her single ‘De Una Vez’ which was released in January 2021. The music video was nominated for Best Music Video Short Version at Latin Grammy 2021.

Thomson says, 'we would love to see Selena Gomez’s oval-shaped, emerald green look she wore for her De Una Vez music video crop us as a nail trend this spring. In the music video, Selena’s green nails were paired with a pretty pink floral dress that complimented one another perfectly.'

3. Louboutin manicure

Receiving 36.6k likes making it Gomez’s third-most-popular nail look was her ‘French Twist with a Flipside’.

Thomson, adds that, 'a French manicure is an ageless style of nail art, but there’s a gothic twist to try! At your next nail appointment, why not request almond-shaped nails, with a black base coat, white tip, and red underside to copy the current queen of Instagram, Selena Gomez? Selena rocked this look in spring 2021 and our research found it’s her third most popular nail design ever.'

4. Chic black mani

Selena hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time on May 14th 2022. Tom Bachik, professional nail artist to Gomez states the look to be a ‘chic black mani’ that was ‘giving glam’.

'Last spring Selena Gomez rocked a wonderful black manicure for her first ever time hosting SNL. The black gothic nails juxtaposed the bright pink dress she wore superbly,' says Thomsom.

'Replicate Selena’s nail look this year because hot pink is in this spring! Barbiecore has taken over the fashion world, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon with the release of ‘BARBIE; THE MOVIE’ this July,' she adds.

5. Classic french tip

Selena Gomez once stated, 'the sexiest thing is class.' When it comes to nails, one of the classiest looks is the standard French tip.

'The French tip is a nail design recognised globally across all generations. No matter what the shape of the nail we believe it oozes sophistication. But, if you’re someone who follows trends be aware that shorter nails are in so a square or squoval shape could be your best option for right now,' reveals Thomson.
