Another fan of the chrome mani is Bella Hadid who wore an extra long molten green dagger mani for a shoot with Vogue. “Chrome accents are a huge hit at the moment, especially against a neutral or contrasting base” celebrity nail manicurist, Michelle Humphrey, told us. “Think French, squiggles, stars, hearts, flames and ombre,” she added.
The good news, is it’s not necessarily that difficult to create a chrome finish. Chrome nails are created by rubbing a powder made of fine metals, glass and pigment over your nail polish, using a soft and spongey eyeshadow brush, until a holographic effect occurs. The powders can come in different colours, or a more neutral silver, in which the colour of the final product will come from the nail varnish painted underneath. The super-shiny effect looks show-stopping when applied as a full manicure, or it can be used on just one or two nails as a feature.
