It Is Not Such A Novel Style
This look, which is neutral enough to be worn anywhere but also glamorous enough for any special occasion, actually harkens back to the frosty shades of the 1980s and the mod-inspired, futuristic hues of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Nail artist Sonya Belakhlef, who works with many celebrities such as Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Mary J. Blige, and Maggie Gyllenhaal, isn't surprised that glazed donut nails are trending. "Everything comes back around," she says.
What You Need
Luckily for all of us, Hailey Bieber's nail artist, Zola, has already shared in a video the type of products she uses to give Hailey the glazed, glitter look.
She revealed that she uses a light white gel nail polish, then follows with a top coat, and then applies a titanium and graphite chrome powder to the nail for that frosted finish. However, this chrome powder is only available at nail salons.
Using Polish Works Too
If you don't want to go to a salon or don't want to apply gel polish at home, no worries, you can absolutely achieve Hailey's look using polish. Just follow these tips:
Start by painting one coat of sheer milky nail polish. Then apply one coat of dry nail polish with pearly white and chrome glitter that shifts from pink to purple. Follow with one more layer of sheer milky polish, and finish it with a glossy top coat.
There are several recommendations to get this look perfectly. Belakhlef recommends layering two coats of a milky pale pink, with one coat of pale shimmering pink.
Others also recommend using a sheer white lilac shimmer that can be worn on its own or layered with your favorite pale shades for that glazed look.
Take Your Time
Remember that pale, shimmery shades can be difficult to apply even if you've been doing your own nails for years.
They can be streaky and patchy, so to avoid any potential problems, take your time when applying your chosen shades. Do it slowly, don't overwork the polish, and coat your nail with the least amount of strokes possible.
