Beauty Trend Alert: Chrome Nails

Favourites 24

Prime for the arrival of the party season, the chrome manicure – a dazzling, high-shine trend that gives nails a molten metal effect – is making traditional, festive glitter look positively dull. A fun alternative to classic berry hues, whether bronze, gold or silver, a chrome finish will set off your favourite stacking rings and bangles or put a dressier spin on unadorned hands. Try it on toes, too, to add a hint of glamour to your party pedicure.

While the shiniest and most show-stopping chrome nails can only be achieved in a salon (a highly pigmented powder is applied on top of nails and finished with a gel top coat), a host of new polishes promise a similar high-shine mirror effect without having to book in for a manicure. Our top tip? Opt for a rose gold shade - try Nails Inc’s Foil Effect Nail Polish in Kings Road - and add a top coat every few days to lock in shine.
