This week on Beauty HQ we're zooming in on two of today's hottest nail looks to break down the magic behind these mesmerising manicures!
Magic Trend - Chrome Nails
Ever wonder how you could score holographic nails like the stars? Ever felt envious of Kylie Jenner's chrome nails? Time to try out your own holographic manicure with the help of OPI Chrome Effects! Think of Chrome Effects like painting metallic eyeshadow onto your nails. These highly pigmented glitter powders come in 8 original shades to suit your style.
The best part about this bling? OPI chrome powders work over both traditional and gel polish. Whichever nail system or shade you prefer, you can create a custom look simply by layering on your choice of chrome powder. Versatility was built into this magical powder! Depending on your base polish shade, you can create countless chrome blends to suit your style of the moment!
If you're after a softer shimmer pick your favourite light or nude OPI shade to start! We recommend picking OPI white nail polish shade Alpine Snow as your base colour. Applying the chrome pigments over a light polish or gel polish creates a more subtle look for a classy magic manicure. If you're seeking a bolder ultra-bright look, choose your favourite dark shade of OPI polish as a base. We suggest OPI black nail polish shade Black Onyx. Applying Chrome Effects over a dark colour brings you a super high contrast look with ultimate rainbow-like shine.
