Fall is officially here, so it's time to sip on PSLs, slather on pumpkin beauty products, and incorporate warm, rich hues into our makeup and on our nails. As Best Products’ beauty editor, I dedicate a lot of time to keeping up with beauty trends, and one nail look collectively sweeping the beauty world is chocolate-glazed donut nails. Sounds delicious, no? Well, we can thank Hailey Bieber and her go-to manicurist Zola Ganzorigt for creating the perfect seasonal manicure.
After a year of collaboration, Ganzorigt says their chemistry is natural and easy because Bieber knows exactly what she likes — including these chocolate-glazed nails. Ganzorigt describes them as a yummy fall version of their now signature glazed donut nail series they debuted at the 2022 Met Gala. And the good news is that you can recreate the look at home using the exact affordable products Ganzorigt used on Bieber. The hero polish of the look is the just-under-$14 OPI Infinite Shine nail polish in Espresso Your Inner Self.
What Is It?: A glossy deep espresso brown nail polish that mimics the look of a long-lasting gel manicure.
Size: 0.5 fluid ounces
Rating: 4.7-star average from 5,006 Amazon reviews
What reviewers are saying: “Generally, when I polish my nails after a few hours, I see chips, with or without a top coat. I’m hard on my nails. I applied this polish last Sunday morning, no top coat. Today is Friday afternoon, six days later. Not a chip to be found anywhere. It looks exactly as it did when I applied it. This polish is amazing! And the color is exactly what I wanted,” says one 5-star Amazon review.
Chocolate-Glazed Nails Tutorial
Prime your nails with OPI Infinite Shine Primer, which is formulated with the brand's ProStay Technology, ensuring up to 11 days of chip-resistant, gel nail polish-like wear and shine.
Apply one coat of OPI Infinite Shine nail polish in Espresso Your Inner Self mixed with a clear top coat to make it slightly sheer.
This final step is where the glazed donut magic is amplified. Mix OPI Infinite Shine in Kyoto Pearl with OPI Infinite Shine ProStay Gloss to create a sheer pearly shade and apply one coat. Lastly, finish the look with a layer of OPI Infinite Shine ProStay Gloss.
And there you have it: In just a few steps (and for less money than a Chipotle burrito with guac) you can achieve a Hailey Bieber-approved chocolate-glazed donut manicure that's ideal for the chilly fall season.
