This Glazed Donut Nail Tutorial is Good Enough to Eat


Hailey Bieber has become an oracle when it comes to nails. The model swiftly hopped on the milky white trend which swept summer and now she is rocking glazed donut nails that are good enough to eat! The pearly talons are among the most searched items on social media and we can’t help but drool every time we see them. 

Thankfully, Hailey’s nail artist, Zola Ganzorigt, has posted a tutorial to show us how to recreate the look using all the same products. Zola used gel, but Crystal who goes by @lovefreshpaint on Instagram has shown us how to achieve the look with regular polish.

Step #1

After prepping the area, Crystal applies one layer of Essie’s Smooth-E onto clean nails. This will act as a base coat while filling any ridges and smoothing out the natural nail. 

Step #2

Olive & June’s BEB is what Crystal uses as the first shade of color. The polish has been described as a sheer, milky white that is the perfect bridal shade. Apply one coat and let it dry. 

Step #3

For that pearly tinge that is the icing on top, paint one layer of Essie’s Expressie FX Filter in the shade Iced Out. The shimmery color contains duo-chrome pearls that shift from pink to purple to teal. 

Step #4

Because we want our donut nails ultra glazed, add a coat of Essie’s Gel Couture polish in Sheer Fantasy. This will give the nails an extra pink hue. 

Step #5

Finish off with your favorite top coat. Then let it dry and enjoy your delicious nails!
