Multi-chromatic Mermaid

Multi-chromatic Mermaid Nails

Chrome powders are easier than you think. The important part is getting a smooth base coat, because any lumps or bumps are going to be enhanced by the chrome finish.

I received this chameleon chrome powder from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review. There are eight different color options. I chose #3 which is a blue green/purple color because it reminded me of a mermaid tail. These powders need a black base coat to really make the colors pop. When the chrome powder is first applied, the colors are really vibrant. However, after the clear top coat was applied, the colors muted and weren't as reflective. The color still looks nice, just not as chrome-y.

Mermaid nails call for a lot of embellishments with pearls and rhinestones. To create this look:
  1. Apply a black base color. The chrome powder needs a no-wipe gel to stick to, so you can either use a no-wipe black gel, or use a no-wipe top coat over regular black polish.

  2. Use an eyeshadow brush to apply chrome powder to each nail. Really rub the powder into the nail to get that mirrored finish.
