Celebrities like Dua Lipa and Hailey Bieber have already been spotted rocking the un-glazed version of this moody manicure, and it's no surprise it's quickly becoming a must-try trend. It recently made its runway debut in an abstract aura manicure by nail artist JinSoon Choi for the Christopher John Rogers collection.

Hailey Bieber Glazed Donut Nails

The look, which was made famous by glazed icon Hailey Bieber, is without a doubt the hottest manicure of the summer. Many salons in New York and Los Angeles have even created bundles of the necessary polishes, so they're ready to go the moment someone says "Hailey Bieber Nails."

The Hailey effect has made the chrome manicure the most requested finish at nail salons, but it has always added dimension to neutral and vivid tones. It's a futuristic metallic lacquer with a soft, dainty sheen.

Jenna Dewan's Aura Glazed Nails

Jenna Dewan, who stars in the film The Rookie, recently went to an event hosted by InStyle. For the occasion, she achieved a stunning red lip and an aura-glazed manicure.

Step-by-Step Guide to Achieve the Viral Glazed Aura Nails

Here are the steps to achieve the Glazed aura nail manicure look:

  1. Apply two coats of your base color on your nails. Let it dry.
  2. Use an airbrush tool to add a lighter shade of your base color in the middle of your nail. Gently spray the color using the airbrushing tool.
  3. Top the second color with your chrome powder or top coat. You can use Tin Man Can Chrome from OPI for a more polished look.
  4. For a classic nail polish look, use a nail sponge dipped in polish to create the aura effect.
  5. Apply the first layer of your polish super light, the second layer a bit darker and smaller, and the center dab should be the darkest to create an ombre effect for an aura look.
  6. To get the glazed effect, top the mani with a shimmering topcoat like ILNP Holographic Shimmer Nail Polish in the shade Secret Society.

Hacks and Tips

  • If you don't have an airbrush tool, you can achieve a similar effect by using a makeup sponge to dab the lighter shade of your base color onto the middle of your nail.
  • To make your manicure last longer, use a good quality base coat before applying your base color.
  • Always wait for your base color to dry completely before applying the lighter shade or chrome powder.
  • For a more vibrant aura effect, use neon colors or bright shades of your base color.
  • If you're using regular nail polish, wait a few minutes for each layer to dry before applying the next layer.
  • Apply a top coat to protect your manicure and make it last longer.
