I have another beautiful polish for you today! If you’ve ever wanted to have chrome nails but don’t want to go through the gel polish and powder route, this metallic lacquer is the perfect choice for you.
The color of this chrome polish is ironically called No More Chrome. It comes from the Born Pretty Mirror Metallic Series of which there are 7 colors available. This shade is a cross between silver and gold and more aptly described as either light champagne gold or platinum depending on the light source.
The cylindrical style bottles from Born Pretty contain 9 mL of polish and feature a wide brush that is big enough to paint your pinky nail in one stroke.
Because of the metallic finish, it is suggested that you either buff your nails prior to painting so that the ridges don’t show underneath the polish, or use either 2-3 coats of regular base coat or a gel base coat to smooth over the surface of your nail. The more even the surface is, the more pretty the final effect of the polish is.
It is important to note that each coat of polish needs to dry completely before adding another coat of polish. If you don’t have patience in doing this, the brush will end up removing some of the lacquer from the first coat and you will literally end up with no more chrome!
On the plus side, this lacquer does not need a lot of time to dry provided that you apply it evenly to your nails, and it will stay put for at least a week or more when combined with a good top coat.
The metallic finish of the polish inspired me to do some Art Deco style nail art on top.
While this polish can’t recreate the exact effect of the original mirror chrome nails, it comes pretty close! It has more of a brushed metallic finish, and the color is very pretty. I’m sure it would also work great with stamping as well due to the pigmentation of the formula, so it is a great value.
