Hailey Bieber has made waves recently for rocking “Glazed Donut” nails, a trend that has now taken the nail world by storm. If your client is looking for the perfect mix between subtle and classy, the Glazed Donut nail trend may be just what they need, and OPI has just what you need.
Celebrity nail technician Zola Ganzorigt (@nailsbyzola) is the person to thank for this subtly shimmery look going viral after doing it on Bieber for the Met Gala. Since then, tons of celebrities have donned the look, including Vanessa Hudgens, another one of Ganzorigt’s famous clients. Ganzorigt uses OPI products to create the hugely popular look. So whether your client wants a subtle pop of pink or a shiny new set of summer nails, OPI has you covered.
The pleasing subtle shimmer comes from a light layer of chrome powder atop a translucent white base, making the nail look frosted or glazed like a delicious donut. A long oval or almond shape perfectly elongates the fingers, making the hands look more feminine, delicate, and elegant. This look is ideal for any occasion, including swanky events or simple daily wear. You can also experiment with different base colors for a brighter look, like how Ganzorigt recreated the look on Bieber in a neon yellow:
