Selena Gomez Just Wore The Perfect Teal Polish — & We Have The Exact Shade

By the time August rolls around, you're probably a little tired of the quintessential summery nail-polish colors but aren't yet ready to commit to fall's deep burgundy or navy tones. In the quest for the perfect summer-to-fall hybrid shade, a dark, sophisticated color that feels both refreshing and transitional, take a cue from Selena Gomez and her most recent color of choice: dark, glossy, teal.

Whatever you call it — teal, turquoise, or aquamarine — the polish we're loving has a rich depths-of-the-ocean effect, with a hint of summer-sky blue. We're not calling dark teal the "it" shade of August just yet, but Gomez is definitely giving it a grade-A endorsement. To see the color up close, click through to see the singer/songwriter's most recent manicure, then find the exact polish bottle she used (plus a few others just like it) to get the same look for yourself.

Celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik posted an Instagram shot showing this stunningly glossy blue-green manicure on Selena Gomez.

E.MiLac GeL in Deep Lake

In Bachik's most-recent Instagram post, he credited Gomez's mesmerizing teal mani to E.Mi gel polish in the shade Deep Lake. According to the brand's website, the polish was inspired by lollipops, which is why Selena's fingernails have that glassy sheen.

It's gorgeous, but if you're looking for a traditional polish formula, you can find other deep-teal options, ahead.
