Chrome Nails Are Everywhere Right Now


Since a slew of It-girls began wearing them earlier this year, chrome nails have been stirring up the beauty sphere. A futuristic twist on a classic manicure, what better way is there to add a shiny effect and make your nails the ultimate eye-catching statement?

Gold, silver, or even copper, the mirror effect is taking up space on the tips of many stars, from Dua Lipa, who shared her gilded manicure on Instagram to the delight of her 82.3 million followers, to Zendaya, who paired her silver outfit with chrome nails at the Oscars. Further inspiration to try this ultra-shiny trend came from the spring 2023 runways, where chrome nails appeared most notably on the Tommy Hilfiger runway.

How to achieve metal effect nails without going to the salon?

Metallic nails can be done in an infinite number of ways, depending on your preferences, from gold to silver, to pink, to blue, or even orange. The first step to achieving this effect at home is prepping your nails. Before starting your new manicure, pushing back the cuticles, filing, and polishing are the first steps. After that, apply a transparent base on the nail before brushing on the chrome effect. For this, there are two options: powder or varnish. For a long time, the powder that polishes the nail and transforms it into a mini-mirror was only available in salons. Now it’s accessible to everyone at home for an express manicure.
