Chrome + Pink Stripes Manicure




I love a good chrome polish and the Silver from Essie's Mirror Metallics collections is no exception. The secret to a good chrome mani is a good base coat. You want to be sure to fill in nail ridges as much as possible.

After my base was dry, I swept on two coats of No Place Like Chrome. Next I used hot pink nail striping tape and cuticle clippers to create the double stripe over the base of each nail.

Watch the video to see a bit of my application technique.





And once again, the finished product!
