I have to admit that once September hits, I tend to be swamped, so I really apologize for being lazy with my blog. I’m trying to keep up with everything as much as I can!
For this manicure, I tried out some of that cool gold chrome powder that has been all the rage.
It works best over gel polish, but because I hardly own any gel polishes, I opted to use a gel top coat from Born Pretty Store over regular nail polish.
I also used Ünt Ready for Takeoff peel off base coat with this one because I didn’t want to deal with the hassle of taking off gel nails. The stuff works wonders for easy polish removal!
I applied a layer of Born Pretty Soak-off Gel Polish top coat over this and cured it under a LED lamp for a minute just to be safe.
After cleaning up the excess powder, I applied another layer of gel top coat and cured it for a minute to seal the chrome look in. I made a jelly sandwich!
I jazzed up the chrome effect by picking a design off of Harunouta plate L009.
The chrome brings some serious glamour into your life. And do you know what’s awesome about stamping over gel topcoat? If you mess up, you can wipe your nail clean with acetone and a cotton ball, and you don’t have to re-paint your base color!
Stay tuned for more of the pigment craze! Happy polishing!
