Hailey Bieber has inspired our beauty look again with a pearl pink manicure that we’re off to copy, asap. It makes sense – after all, she’s one of the leading forces behind the “clean girl aesthetic” – a barely-there, but better vibe that’s set the tone for her signature no-makeup makeup look, and the philosophy behind her beauty line, Rhode Skin (which launched in the US in June).
So far for 2022, she’s already given us glazed-donut skin, revealing “my standard when I go to bed at night is if I’m not getting into bed looking like a glazed donut, then I’m not doing the right thing.” She’s given us cappuccino brunette hair, a stunning natural brunette complete with light caramel babylights for extra dimension. And she’s given us sun-kissed blush, a flushed, sun-drenched look that involves a softer blush placement on the apples of cheeks, rather a super high sculpted look. It’s a cuter, fresher take.
She’s shown that minimal and boring are two very different things. And classic beauty looks executed beautifully with a subtle new-gen twist have become her trademark.
Next up? Nails. Despite mixing in brights every now and then, Hailey Bieber’s go-to mani tends to be a continuation of the clean-girl theme with a spin on sheer, nude nails, buffed into a perfect almond shape.
And lately, the look has majorly taken off on TikTok and Instagram, with the term ‘Hailey Bieber Nails’ racking up 206.3 million views (and counting) on TikTok. Hailey’s nail artist, Zola Ganzorigt, also recently shared a video tutorial of the look with OPI.
The look offers a fresh neutral that’s perfect for summer. Zola starts by prepping nails before applying the OPI Gel Base Coat. She used one coat of Funny Bunny (a sheer baby pink) and set it with a thin later of the OPI Stay Shiny Top Coat. For a subtle glam shimmer, she rubbed in some of OPI’s Chrome Effects powder in Tin Man before finishing everything off with the OPI GelColour Stay Shiny Top Coat.
Hailey has also revealed that she likes to mix a shade with a clear polish to make it thinner for her go-to sheer look. Sharing her own tutorial on TikTok, she told fans: “Here’s my nail combo… the [key] is to mix whatever color you choose with clear polish to thin it out.” On this occasion, it was OPI’s Gel Colour in Pale To The Chief. One thing always stays the same, however: she finishes every manicure with the (now sold out everywhere) Tin Man chrome powder for that signature frosty finish.
Since these are all pro products, you’ll need to visit a salon to make like Hailey – but for a similar combo that you can create at home, we’d recommend applying two coats of OPI’s Nail Envy Strengthener in Bubble Bath with one coat of OPI’s Nail Lacquer in Throw Me A Kiss, barely-there pink glitz for a pretty baby pink mani with a shot of pearl shimmer.
We love this elevated twist on nude nails.
