Gold Chrome Nails – Chrome nails seem to be the lastest trend these days. I have been seeing all of my favorite nail techs on Instagram using these powders to create awesome nail designs. When I saw one of my top favorite nail techs Poochiez Nails began to offer chrome powders in her online store, I knew I had to try it out. I purchase most of my nail supplies from Poochiez Nails because she carry great quality items at a fair price. With so many people selling chrome powder, I wanted to make sure I was getting a quality product. Purchasing from Poochiez Nails gave me the confidence that I was getting a good quality powder.
I purchased the Gold Chrome powder, Poochiez Nails 3D acrylic brush, and Poochiez Nails Super Shine Gel Topcoat. The chrome powder was to include a sponge applicator brush for applying the powder however she emailed me to inform me that she was out of stock on those. So she ended up included a nail art brush as a gift. What great customer service!
To achieve these Gold Chrome Nails I first applied the Poochiez Nails Super Shine Gel Topcoat to my nails. It is recommended to apply a dark color polish as your base color and then the gel topcoat but I wanted to see how the gold chrome powder would look over light pink acrylic. I used a makeup applicator sponge to apply to the gold powder to my nails using circular rubbing motions. A small amount of powder goes a long way. I just assumed that this powder would be like loose eyeshadow pigment powder but is it more finely milled that makeup pigment. As soon as the gold chrome powder to rubbed into the surface of the nail the pigment is bold and sort of “stuck” onto the nail (for lack of a better term). I applied one layer of gold chrome powder then applied the Poochiez Nails Super Shine Topcoat. After curing that for 60 seconds under my LED nail lamp, I repeated the process; putting on a second layer of powder.
I am truly impressed with the gold chrome powder as it is very metallic and the color pay-off is so bold. I plan to purchase the silver chrome powder from Poochiez Nails once it is restocked.
Let me know what you think about these Gold Chrome Nails. Have you tried other brands of chrome powder? What was your experience?
