Glazed Donut Nails Are Summer’s Sweetest Manicure

According to Nick Drewe, a trend forecaster and founder of coupon website WeThrift, the glazed-donut trend is perfect for the make-under, natural vibes of summertime. “Everyone is switching for a more natural-looking nail,” he says. “The same can be said for hair and makeup, with minimalism, natural and toned-down looks being the latest craze. Summer is a time to tone back on heavy glam and embrace a softer, more natural look, as people head on holiday and to festivals and outdoor gatherings in the sun.”

Summer is also the best time for experimenting with nail looks. From bold shades of the best summer nail colors to Y2K-inspired butterfly nail art and jelly nails, there are plenty of mani options to pair with your rooftop cocktail. Glazed-donut nails strike the perfect balance—they’re neutral with some extra oomph and perfect for any vibe or venue on your schedule. “The classic and neutral nail is a desired look in the summer season as the nail shade will go with almost any outfit,” Drewe says. “It’s no surprise that many are drawn to this nail color as it demonstrates elegance and subtlety.”

Celebrity nail artist Zola Ganzorigt is behind Bieber’s glazed-donut sets and used OPI products to achieve the frosted shine. According to the brand, Ganzorigt started with a base of OPI GelColor Stay Classic Base Coat, followed by one coat of OPI GelColor in Funny Bunny, a sheer milky white. She then layered on OPI GelColor Stay Shiny Top Coat, followed by the OPI Chrome Effects in Tin Man Can to get a subtle iridescent finish. To seal the look, she topped everything off with another layer of topcoat.
