What do Selena Gomez and her best friend Taylor Swift have in common? Probably a lot (they’re BFFs after all!) but they also seem to be swapping beauty and style tips. After Gomez was seen wearing the same Reformation pullover as Swift, it seems she has also copied Swift’s recent mani of choice: long square nails.

After the Chiefs won the AFC Championship game on January 28 , Swift showed off a square sparkling set while kissing boyfriend Travis Kelce on the football field. Gomez has seemingly co-signed the trend, debuting a bold, square French mani in a music video for her new single “Love On.” The style is so retro it could have come straight off the set of (the original) Mean Girls.

Celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik created the look for Gomez and appropriately dubbed it the “Love On” French mani. Bachik describes it as “an exaggerated french to play into the chateau vibe of the video.”

If you’re feeling inspired, here’s how Bachik captured the early-aughts aesthetic. First, he prepped Gomez’s nails with Tweezerman x Tom Bachik Ultimate Nail Care Set to “create the perfect foundation.” Then he applied a full-coverage tip for length and shape, followed by a luscious coat of Essie’s sheer pink Mademoiselle polish “for a clean fresh base.”

Next, Bachik created the French tip using Essie nail polish in Blanc, which he did to achieve an “exaggerated ’90s look.” Finally, Bachik topped everything off with a rich coat of Essie Gel Couture Top Coat for a gorgeous glossy finish.

Obviously, Bachik more than understood the assignment. Regina George definitely approves.
