I know chrome nails are not anything new. As a matter of fact chrome nails have been around for a long time now. What is new and what everyone is talking about is the “chrome powder”.

It’s definitely more chrome than you will get out of a nail polish or regular foil. Chrome nail polish just look really silver and they don’t have that reflected mirror effect that this powder gives.

How to achieve the chrome nail effect?


UV/LED lamp

Chrome powder

Gel top coat

Gel base colour

  1. Apply whatever colour gel polish to the nails as a base colour. Cure in a UV lamp for 2 minutes or 1 minute in LED lamp. Do two coats if necessary.
  2. Apply the chrome powder using an eye-shadow applicator that comes in an eye-shadow palette.
  3. Scrub in the chrome powder on the nails until you achieve the mirror effect.
  4. Apply a gel topcoat and cure.

It does look really really cool. Getting  a chrome manicure will cost you between 4000-8000 Naira depending on where you decide to get it done.

This crazy mirror powder create nails you can literally check your reflection in.
