Consider Sydney Sweeney influenced by none other than nail aficionado Hailey Beiber. The Euphoria actress who walked the Emmys red carpet on September 12 dropped jaws with her Bridgerton-inspired, silver beaded Oscar de la Renta gown. But TBH, us beauty girlies were equally as distracted by Sydney's shiny, metallic nails that look a whole lot like the glazed donut nails trend that Hailey blessed us with.

In case you haven't refreshed your TikTok FYP in a hot sec, applying a sheer base coat of colored nail polish with a dusting of chrome nail effect on top is the It girl thing to do rn. Mrs. Bieber — the reigning queen of skincare and inventor of the new meaning for 'glazed donut' — first pioneered this look with nail artist Zola Ganzorigt this past May at the Met Gala. The reminder to keep our skin glowing every time we see a Krispy Kreme has now blown up, making us crave the glossy look in all steps of our beauty routine — nails included. Sydney obvs had the same appetite we do for the delicious look, so she went to Ganzorigt to get the look from the baker — err, we mean maker.

Sharing her wisdom with the world, Ganzorigt gave us a full breakdown of Sweeney's glazed donut nails over on Instagram — and this version has a fun ombré twist. After prepping the nails, Ganzorigt applied the clear, OPI GelColor Stay Classic Base Coat and then one coat of OPI's GelColor in Put it in Neutral. She then brushed on two coats of OPI's GelColor in Clean Slate, applying the polish to the nail's midpoint before stroking the color up to the tip. Before rubbing on the ~special ingredient~ that makes the nails oh so shiny (aka OPI's Chrome Effects in Tin Man Can), Ganzorigt added the OPI Chrome Effects No-Cleanse Top Coat. Finally, the nail artist finished with OPI's GelColor Stay Shiny Top to lock the look in.

For those of us who don't have the budget or time to take a trip to the nail salon, Ganozigt has also included how you can get this look at home, sans gel polish. Start by applying a base coat of OPI's Infinite Shine Primer. Then, brush on one coat of OPI Infinite Shine in Put it in Neutral. To get that ombré twist, Ganzoright recommends using a small makeup sponge to dab on OPI's Infinite Shine in Clean Slate, spreading the color from the nail's middle point up to the tip. Once you've reached your desired ombré effect, mix OPI's Infinite Shine Top Coat with a tiny drop of OPI's Nail Lacquer in Kyoto Pearl on a piece of tin foil. Frankensteining these two polishes together creates the *perfect* sheen, giving you that chromed-out effect. Top your look off with a coat of OPI's Infinite Shine Top Coat and you'll be ready to take a TikTok vid of your nails and watch the likes roll in.
