Selena Gomez was on fire from head to toe at the 2023 MTV VMAs. Not only did she hit the pink carpet in a warm bronze and brown makeup palette and fire engine red Oscar de la Renta dress, but her “golden glaze fire” nails kept the flames burning.As always, Gomez’s nails were the handiwork of nail artist Tom Bachik, and the duo outdid themselves with the reflective red chrome set. To bring the look to life, Bachik applied nail extension tips and shaped them into “a long tapered square,” then applied PLA Gel Polish in Chai and Chai Again, which he called “the perfect red to match both her gown and her shoes.” (He also used the shade on her toes.) For that lit-from-within look and to “bring the fire,” as he described it, Bachik used a “golden glaze iridescent.” He then finished with PLA’s No Wipe Top Coat for what he called “perfect shine.” And voila! Gomez was ready to set the red carpet on fire, which she absolutely did; in fact, we deemed her VMA glam one of the best beauty looks of the night, and you probably won’t be surprised to know that it was a whole lotta Rare Beauty.Instagram contentThis content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.
