The secret’s out. After a soaring start to Hailey Bieber’s must-need-now beauty line Rhode that’s harking all the of-the-moment buzz, likened to its dewy peptide-serum hybrid, the deliciously-chic ‘glazed doughnut’ manicure will also have your next lacquered tips a(glazed). Tapping into Hailey’s go-to celebrity nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, this TikTok-hailed trend became mainstay in thanks to its pinky barely-there, pearlescent appeal with its signature sheen. Consider this the ‘no-makeup’ makeup for your nails.
As ever-popular, the ‘glazed doughnut’ manicure signals its admirers to the beauty inspiration from the 90s & early aughts of Y2K. The dusted effect of finishing chrome pigments creates the illusion of milky translucency with a frosted, Y2K signature twist. Perfect as a go-to staple, this trend (also harked by TikTok as the Zola Nails) can be adapted within a wide variety of shades such as summery neons. Uplifting traditionally opaque hues, the gilded sheet awashes the nail creating a sensual & anew manicure with gentle luminosity. This glassed-out manicure would be an essential for one to keep lacquered in their (nail) files.
To achieve this look on Hailey in amongst other high-profile admirers of the trend, Ganzorigt applies OPI’s Stay Strong Gel Base Coat then sets to dry. Following the base, Zola adds atop OPI’s ‘Funny Bunny’ Gel Colour. After a short dry, she adds OPI’s Stay Shiny Top Coat & once dry wipes away any access & polishes with an alcohol pad. For that finishing moment of dewy sheen, Ganzorigt lies on OPI’s Chrome Effects Tin Man Can. Alternatively, as outlined by Zola, OPI’s Infinite Shine in Kyoto Pearl mixed with a couple drops of top coat would attain the same luscious appeal.
