Unless you’ve been living inside a nail dryer, you’ve seen Hailey Bieber’s glazed donut nail trend on TikTok, Reels, or possibly even your local nail salon. Search “#HaileyBieberNails” on TikTok, and also you’re immediately inundated with over 78 million views showcasing the model’s various trendsetting manicures. Mellow Bar in Recent York City has even added the “Hailey Bieber Manicure” to its service menu. Color Camp, an L.A.-based nail brand that sells custom press-ons, released its very own Bieber-inspired set.

So what’s the Hailey Bieber glazed donut nail, you ask? It’s a pearly iridescent mani, achieved by applying a lightweight neutral gel base coat and topping with a chrome powder. The result: the shade of a wonderfully delicious glazed donut. Bieber’s nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, who’s also worked with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Sydney Sweeney, and Precious Lee, shared all the ideas and tricks for achieving pastry-perfect nails. Ganzorigt also shared a number of more iconic donut-esque looks from the reigning nail queen, like her classic red or the latest chocolate brown, so you possibly can achieve all glazed every little thing from the comfort of your individual home.

The Original Glazed Donut Nail

Ganzorigt created the long-lasting glazed donut nail search for Bieber to sport on the Met Gala. She notes, “It was so unplanned and got here out so pretty that it went viral.” It’s gained major popularity since it is so easy and flattering on all nail shapes and lengths. “It was different than your usual chrome nails because the base color is so see-through and natural,” adds Ganzorigt.

All it requires is a skinny layer of a neutral shade, like OPI’s Funny Bunny polish, topped with chrome powder for the shiny effect. Ganzorigt’s personal fave is the OPI Tin Man Can Chrome Effects Mirror-Shine Nail Powder. Finish the look with a shiny top coat and a gel curing, and also you’re good to go. When you’re headed to the salon, Ganzorigt recommends asking your nail tech for the glazed donut look or showing an image of the chrome mani. She also posts a breakdown of every nail look on her Instagram page, when you’re searching for specifics!

Nonetheless, when you’re not going to the nail salon or don’t have a gel UV light at home, check out these user-friendly products so you possibly can dive into the glazed donut trend right away.

The Chocolate Glazed Donut Nail

Most recently, Bieber showcased brown-tinged recommendations on TikTok, which she dubbed the “chocolate” version of the glazed donut nail trend. “We’ve been trying different colours, and brown is such a superb color for fall,” Ganzorigt tells ELLE.com. “We desired to make it look more like a chocolate donut, though.”

To attain this, Ganzorigt recommends selecting your favorite brown color and mixing it with a top coat to make it sheer. For Bieber’s specific shade, Ganzorigt blended DND’s gel colours in Coffee Bean and Spiced Brown with OPI’s Stay Shiny gel top coat. She also began with OPI’s Stay Strong gel base coat and cured Bieber’s nails at each step. Based on Ganzorigt, all you wish is one coat of polish to make the look work. Finally, set your suggestions with pearlescent chrome powder or a pearlescent nail lacquer to get that coveted glowy effect.

In case you don’t need to go the gel route, it’s also possible to pick up a classic brown lacquer and top coat (see a few of our picks below).

Bieber has opted for a shiny red almond-shaped nail every so often. She recently modeled the look in her campaign with Tiffany & Co. If you desire to achieve a classic Old Hollywood-style red manicure like Bieber, start by filing your nails right into a rounded almond shape with a high-quality file. Then, apply a number of layers of a shiny red nail lacquer until opaque, and finish with a high-shine top coat. And when you’re searching for a straightforward way out, try a set of red press-on nails.

To attain a donut-esque mani at home, just top your favorite shades with a pearlescent top coat or check out these chrome-y polishes for an identical look. Be happy to go together with brighter shades for a fun pop, or bring the trend squarely into fall with barely more subdued versions.

In terms of achieving a Hailey Bieber-worthy manicure, it’s all about nail care. “It’s really essential to take vitamins to maintain your nails healthy,” says Ganzorigt. “Using cuticle oil repeatedly helps to maintain your nails healthy as well.” No hang nails or dry cuticles here!

Try taking a day by day vitamin full of biotin to grow and strengthen your nails. Apply cuticle cream and hand lotion day by day to maintain your nail beds moisturized and completely satisfied. Ganzorigt also recommends getting your nails done or doing them yourself every 10 to 14 days to avoid chipping and breakage.

When you’re waiting on the sting of your seat wondering what the following big nail trend is, don’t worry! Ganzorigt is already fascinated about it. “Since persons are preferring more minimalist nail looks, I’d assume some warm-toned colours or dark-toned chrome can be popular,” she says. But after all, a glazed donut nail is a protected bet.
