Vanessa Hudgens Copied Hailey Bieber’s Met Gala 2022 Nails

“Glazed donut” nails are officially the it-girl manicure of summer 2022.

When Hailey Bieber debuted her shimmery sheer mani at the 2022 Met Gala, fans went wild in their attempt to recreate the neutral nails.

Now Vanessa Hudgens is showing off her own version of the look, courtesy of the same talented nail technician.

Los Angeles-based nail technician for the stars Zolzaya Ganzorigt designed the much-duplicated design and revealed the exact products she used for the look on her Instagram shortly after the event.

Since then, beauty gurus have been trying to emulate the nails, with over 7.4 billion views on TikTok devoted to the now viral trend.

While Bieber’s mani was more baby pink, Hudgens went for opaque white—using fan-favorite OPI Funny Bunny and OPI Chrome effects in Tin Man Can—which really goes with everything.

Hudgens, 33, noted that she was “obsessed” with the neon version of Bieber’s glazed nails on Ganzorigt’s Instagram, just a day before sharing photos of the completed white look on her Instagram stories. She captioned the photos, “When Your Nails Match Your Pearls,” and Zola shared her own behind-the-scenes photos.

Nail artist to the stars Zola explained on Instagram exactly how to ask for your own version.

Ganzorigt, who goes by Zola, told Vidak For Congress Style, “Hailey and Vanessa’s nail was the same but different” because “for Hailey’s it was translucent and I only used one coat of the color, but on Vanessa I used the exact same color but two coats, so it gave it a more pearly look.”

Zola said interested parties can “ask for a pearlescent chrome nail” if they want to create the look themselves. “If they don’t have the exact nail polish I used, just pick a milky off-white color or just mix white with clear gel,” she advised.

After Hailey Bieber showed off baby pink glittery nails at the Met Gala, all of TikTok tried to emulate the summer trend.

When it comes to chrome, she recommends using Tin Man, but if the salon doesn’t have it, she says “pearl chrome powder without any shadow effect” should do the trick, as chrome powders tend to create “reflective shadow colors in the powder, such as pink, purple, and green.”

Zola told us she was “really surprised” that the trend took off after the Met Gala. Before the event, she found the chrome powder while shopping and decided to use it at the last minute after seeing Bieber’s white satin Saint Laurent dress.

“Originally we only made translucent white, but after I applied the color I asked Hailey to try the chrome effect as it would match her dress. That’s how we discovered glazed donut nails,” she revealed, adding: ” One thing about Hailey is that she always knows what she likes and wants and at the same time is always open to discover new things. If you ask a nail technician, that is our ideal dream customer.”

Zola thinks the custom color got off the ground because it’s subtle with a “nice twist” and “very simple but catches everyone’s eye.” She “always tells people it looks much better in person and once you have it, you become addicted to it.”

The former dancer and current founder of the skincare brand loves a glazed moment.

Justin Bieber’s model and wife loves a glazed donut effect, be it on her nails or on her face, and is offering a Peptide Glazing Fluid ($29) as part of her skincare line Rhode’s first product launch.

Say goodbye to extravagant nail art and the return of the French, because chrome seems to be here to stay; This summer you won’t just be glassy with sweat – now your nails can shine too.
