Hey Beauties!

Are you a fan of sweet treats and trendy nail art? Then get ready! Our new Glazed Donut collection is finally here. Inspired by Hailey Bieber's stunning glazed donut nails, these toppers are sure to take your manicure from boring to sugary sweet. The Glazed Donut nail polish toppers come in four unique colors, 'Sugar Rush', 'Sweet Tooth', 'Candy Coated', and 'Jelly Roll', each with a clear base that shifts from one color to another. We've also created a deliciously scented Jelly Doughnut Cuticle Balm to complete your delectable nail care routine.

Our Glazed Donut nail polish toppers are perfect for anyone who wants to add a touch of glam and fun to their nails. The iridescent shifting shades create a stunning glazed donut effect on your nails, sure to turn heads. Each topper has a clear base, which makes it perfect for layering over any color polish to create hundreds of different glazed donut looks. They can even be worn alone for a subtle, yet striking look.

What Are Glazed Donut Nails?

Glazed donut nails consist of two main elements: 1) a creamy, sheer shade and 2) a reflective chrome or color shifting shade. Over the last year Hailey Bieber has worn many different types of "glazed donut" style manicures, but these are the main qualities that they all encompass.

The original Hailey Bieber glazed donut nails utilize a light colored gel nail polish (such as OPI’s GelColor in Funny Bunny) that needs to be cured before rubbing a chrome powder (like OPI’s Chrome Effects in Tin Man Can) all over the nail. While the technique really isn’t difficult, it does require using gel nail polish that you cure with an LED light. If you are familiar with how to apply gel nails, you can do this yourself at home or have them recreated at the salon.

But, I wanted to be able to recreate this look without having to go to a salon, curing my nails with an LED light or using a rub on powder. Out of this desire came the Glazed Donut collection! Let's take a closer look at each of these dazzling nail polish toppers:
