Hard-Boiled Egg Girl is a slang term for an aesthetic trend that purportedly refers to girls who love pink pastels, whites, broderie anglaise and glazed nails. The aesthetic was first shared on TikTok in November 2022 and spread over the following weeks for its absurd name as people questioned what it meant, resulting in memes about the aesthetic. It's also particularly associated with Gen Z.


On November 22nd, 2022, TikToker[1] @selfcarewn posted a video slideshow responding to a comment asking, "hard-boiled egg girls?" in which images of hard-boiled eggs and images that relate to the aesthetic, such as long pink nails, a girl putting her face into a bowl of ice and pastel colors were shown (shown below). The video gained over 192,000 views in two weeks. Prior to this video, the TikToker posted similar videos sharing food-based aesthetics like the "vanilla girl," "chocolate girl" and "matcha girl," sharing the "baked bean girl" aesthetic after the hard-boiled egg girl.
