Chrome powder from IsaDora

I’ve been very curious about the chrome powders that have been circling around the internet and I was really eager to try that on my own.

I used the Chromed powder from IsaDora which gives you chromed nails with an undertone of the base color. That means that if you want a slight tint of blue to the end result, you’ll get one by using a blue base. If you want a tint of gold, you’ll use a yellow base and if you want rose nails you’ll have to use a pink base.

It’s really easy to obtain the chromed nails. You start by painting the nails with a regular polish (I’ve used IsaDora Colonial Blue for the base of the nails below) then you wait for the recommended two minutes (I actually didn’t take time). When the nails are “touch dry” meaning that you can touch them without leaving marks but you cannot press too hard without leaving marks, then you take some powder on your fingertips and start working in the powder on your nails. You’ll have to either tape around your nails to avoid all that powder getting EVERYWHERE on your skin around your nails.

To preserve the beautiful chrome surface, apply one coat of the specially designed Chrome Top Coat. I’ve read (without trying this myself) that a regular top coat will dull the chrome effect.

    That chrome effect is stunning!
    I’ve wanted to try chrome and multichrome powder but haven’t seen them working without going through the gel/ UV curing route.
    Glad to know there’s an alternative.

    Perfect chrome effect. How much time does it resist on your nails? I am just asking because I tried myself chrome nail polishes (until now not powders) with special top coat and after one day it started to chip.

      The durability is really good. I’ve worn these for four days without any sign of chipping or tip wear :)
