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

So what is the Hailey Bieber Glazed Donut nail, you ask? It's a pearly iridescent mani, achieved by applying a light neutral gel base coat and topping with a chrome powder. The ultimate result: the shade of a perfectly delicious glazed donut. Mrs. Bieber's nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, who's also worked with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Syndey Sweeney, and Precious Lee, shared all the tips and tricks for achieving pastry perfect nails. Ganzorigt also shared a few more iconic donut-esque looks from the reigning nail queen, like her classic red or the newest neon yellow chrome, so you can achieve all glazed everything from the comfort of your own home.

Ganzorigt created the iconic glazed donut nail look for Bieber to sport at the MET Gala. She notes, "it was so unplanned and came out so pretty that it went viral." It's gained major popularity because it is so simple and flattering on all nail shapes and lengths. "It was different than people’s usual chrome nails since the base color is so see-through and natural," says Ganzorigt.

All it requires is a thin layer of a neutral shade like OPI's Funny Bunny polish topped with chrome powder for the shiny effect. Ganzorigt's 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. If headed to the salon, Ganzorigt recommends asking your nail tech for the glazed donut look or showing a picture of the chrome mani. She also posts a breakdown of each nail look on her Instagram page if you're looking for specifics!

However, if you're not going to the nail salon or don't have a gel UV light at home, try out these user-friendly products so you can dive into the glazed donut trend right now.

Bieber has opted for a bright red almond-shaped nail every now and then. She recently modeled the look in her campaign with Tiffany & Co.

If you want to achieve a classic Old Hollywood-style red manicure like Bieber, start by filing your nails into a rounded almond shape with a high-quality file. Then apply a few layers of a bright red nail lacquer until opaque and finish with a high shine top coat. And if you're looking for an easy way out, try a set of red press-on nails.

When it comes to achieving a Hailey Bieber-worthy manicure, it's all about nail care. "It’s really important to take vitamins...to keep your nails healthy,” says Ganzorigt. “Using cuticle oil regularly helps to keep your nails healthy as well." No hang nails or dry cuticles here!

Try taking a daily vitamin packed with biotin to grow and strengthen your nails. Apply cuticle cream and hand lotion daily to keep your nail beds moisturized and happy. Ganzorigt also recommends getting your nails done or doing them yourself every 10 to 14 days to avoid chipping and breakage.

If you're waiting on the edge of your seat wondering what the next big nail trend is, don't worry! Ganzorigt is already thinking about it. "Since people are preferring more minimalist nail looks, I’d assume some warm toned colors or dark toned chrome will be popular," she says. But of course, a glazed donut nail is always in.
