Hailey Bieber’s “glazed donut skin” has got to be one of the top skincare trends to follow this season. In case you missed it, this is the look of naturally glistening skin that doesn’t look greasy.
Hot on the heels of her previous trend, the celeb has introduced yet another stylish look that everyone is now coveting: glazed donut nails.
Now, what are glazed donut nails?
A perfect balance of pearly, glowy, and slightly translucent, the glazed donut nail trend can be spotted all over TikTok – even celebrities are onboard.
Vanessa Hudgens and Sydney Sweeney were seen wearing them; the former sought out Bieber’s nail stylist to recreate the look.
How to achieve glazed donut nails
If you’re wondering how to get this beautiful manicure, it’s much simpler than you think. Hailey Bieber, together with her nail stylist, Zola Ganzorigt, shows us how:
Step 1: Apply base
Apply one coat of O.P.I Gel Color Stay Strong Base Coat. Cure it for 60 seconds so it sets as a base.
O.P.I Gel Color Stay Strong Base Coat retails for S$22 on United Nail Supply.
Step 2: Top coat
Next, apply the O.P.I Gel Color Stay Shiny Top Coat and let it dry for 60 seconds. Yes, it may sound odd to already apply the top coat – but keep reading.

Step 3: Wipe with alcohol swab
After your top coat has dried, wipe your nails surface with an alcohol swab.
Step 4: Apply chrome
Here’s the fun part; use O.P.I Chrome Effect in Tin Man Can and apply it using an eyeshadow brush. Rub this on your nails.

Step 5: Set it
Finally, apply O.P.I Top Coat (yes, the same one), cure for 60 seconds to set the look. And voila! You now have pearly “glazed donut nails” just like Hailey Bieber’s.
If you’re wondering if you could use other colours to achieve the look, the answer is yes. Zola also shared how to get Bieber’s ‘new trend’ nails in a lavender shade.
