Chrome Nail Art + Tutorial


Chrome nails are LITERALLY everywhere on social media right now. I had seen so much of them I thought I was completely over them, but after picking up this colored pigment from Skyline Beauty Supply last week I had a change of heart! To switch it up, I incorporated a couple colors with “negative space” for these gel nails.

My biggest tip if you’re trying these: chrome makes a mess! It somehow is all over my phone screen and won’t come off (does anyone have any tips?!) so do these over a towel and keep any valuables far away πŸ™‚

So what do you think of the chrome frenzy? Have you tried them yourself?

    Do you need to use gel nail polish to use the chrome pigment powder?

      Yes! I’ve seen it done with regular nail polish but the top coat doesn’t apply well and can crack.

        What Base Coat and Top Coat would you recommend for gel nails?

          I mix and match and use tons of brands, lately I’ve been using CND base and top coat

    aww I love these crome nails so much!!! I haven’t had any experience with gel yet so I’m still a bit hesitant to use it but I definitely love the look!
    Oh may I ask where you got that tape from? I am looking for those wider tapes actually. Thank you in advance <3
