Chrome nails are the hottest trend to hit 2017. Are you ready for them?
In 2016, we thought bracelet nail art was going to be the IT thing for the new year. Sure, the nail art world went crazy for “holo” or holographic nail art but we sure didn’t see the next nail art trend coming — chrome nails.
Chrome nails and holographic nails are being used interchangably nowadays. Both are metallic but while holographic nails give off a irridescent rainbow effect, chrome is strictly mirrorized and reflectorized.
Here, take a look at some awesome holographic nails:
And boy, how they go like a kaleidescope when you move your hands in the light! You know you’re looking at holographic nails when the shine has all colors of the rainbow. It’s just like that sheen on an oil puddle — only prettier, of course!
Now let’s check out chrome nails.
Beautiful and schmexy, right? They should be! You’re looking at Gigi Hadid’s $2,000 dollar nails. As if her perfect looks, dress, and beau Zayn Malik weren’t enough, Gigi Hadid came to the Met Gala Debut with these crhome nails that soon came to be the talk of the town.
Her nail artist, Mar y Soul, added 3 precious cyrstals underneath each nail and used an amazing chrome nail polish. Unfortunately with this nail trend, the more dough you spend, the better quality you get. You get better application, more staying power, and better color impact all around.
