15 colors of chrome nail polish for an easy mirror-like manicure
Chrome nails are having a moment. Flooding both Insta feeds on red carpets, high-shine manicures are everywhere — and for good reason. This eye-catching nail art is one of the best ways to elevate any beauty look.
“Chrome nail art is clean and simple,” Los Angeles-based nail artist Chyna Stevens told Bustle recently. She explained that chrome nails involve applying a micro powder over any nail polish or gel to give that mirror effect. This makes them versatile and one of the easiest choices for a bold manicure. (“Chrome nails also look great with jewelry,” Stevens added).
But what if you don’t want to do the extra steps and buy powder to mix with your polishes? What if you just wanted a one-stop solution? No problem. Luckily, many of the best nail brands have done the hard work for you and released chrome polishes so you can achieve the super cool chrome finish in just under two coats of polish – no extra supplies needed.
Covering all the best shades and color combinations, here are 15 of the best chrome nail polishes.
