OPI CHROME: Metamorphic Metal Nail Art Tutorial

Chrome Through the Years

What is Chrome?

 A chrome finishes reflect rays of incoming light, allowing iridescent metallic tones to shine. Glitter and gloss are having a comeback across beauty categories (think highlighters, eye shadows, the return of glitter lip gloss.) Naturally, nails have seen the same.  It’s exactly opposite of the once dominating matte manicure.

The Chrome Trend


With the pendulum swinging towards more nail swagger, along came Chrome. Sometime in 2016, this cool new manicure really took over our timelines. Beauty blog after beauty blog boasted the novelty of this newly found innovation in nails. Like a myriad of beauty trends before it, the mirror-like mani had simply made its way mainstream
