Our Favorite Hailey Bieber Look? Glazed Donut Nails, Naturally

"Our favorite (and the most luminous) of Hailey Bieber's nail looks is easily emulated with these sustainable polishes."

This summer, we’re all about sustainably-minded shine—and a survey of Hailey Bieber‘s nail game is a sure sign that we’re not alone.

Bieber’s impossibly dewy complexion has elicited envy, a skincare line, and a full-on aesthetic: glazed donut, the descriptor referring to a finish as glossy as the coating on your Krispy Kreme. And while you were busy trying to figure out how to properly frost your skin, another iteration of the trend has manifested in the form of glazed donut nails.

How to Get Hailey Bieber’s Glazed Donut Nails

Dreamed up by Bieber’s nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, the manicure is defined by a barely-there pearlescent finish, like a layer of liquid sugar pulled from bed to almond-shaped tip. The look is neutral enough to complement any season, occasion, or style—which means it’s likely here to stay.

Ganzorigt opts for OPI, but the light-catching look is just as achievable with a more eco-friendly polish. Who knows, this may be your introduction to a new favorite brand. Here, five sustainable options to help you achieve a flawless glazed donut manicure.
