Some time ago, fashion designers didn’t really pay too much attention to nails. But in recent years, that’s changed. Nails have become the center of attention, and this year’s hottest trend, chrome nail polish, will make sure everyone’s eyes are on you.
Chrome Nail Polish: The Basics
The most popular choice so far is the simple, yet bold, silver color, with a near-mirror finish. It’s definitely a great choice for special occasions. It can also work well with a casual attire. That’s what’s great about the silver tone. While the shine makes it stand out, the color itself is neutral, which means it goes well with just about anything. And works great both for long, and short nails. Though most designers seem very fond of shorter nails this year.
You can vary the shine of the finish from a relatively matte look, to a dazzling mirror finish. You can wear this type of [easyazon_link identifier=”B01I2GE7DY” locale=”US” tag=”beautifu0f2-20″]polish[/easyazon_link] as is, or accessorize further. It’s a surprisingly versatile style, that can dramatically change the overtones of your outfit.
Add a Splash of Color
While it seems [easyazon_link identifier=”B01KWF6LMI” locale=”US” tag=”beautifu0f2-20″]silver-colored chrome nail polish[/easyazon_link] is everyone’s darling, that doesn’t mean you can’t use color as well. This type of nail polish comes [easyazon_link identifier=”B00GHODSES” locale=”US” tag=”beautifu0f2-20″]tinted versions[/easyazon_link] as well. It’s certainly going to add a little bit of dazzle to an already fabulous look.

Dazzle and Sparkle
Another popular fashion this season is [easyazon_link identifier=”B00RODDFJO” locale=”US” tag=”beautifu0f2-20″]glittery nails[/easyazon_link]. And these two trends go very well together. Combining chrome nail posh with a little bit of glitter is going to add some texture to your manicure. It’s a great way to vary your look, if you ever get bored of the going for the same thing all the time. The glitter is going to take some of the edge off your chrome nail polish, to create a sparkling effect that goes well with any outfit.
Bracelet nails are new trend in of themselves. It involves adding small beads, or tiny slivers of metallic thread across the fingernail, basically like a bracelet. It’s a really novel look, a much bolder take on the classic gem or stone accent that was quite popular a few years back. And it works well with chrome nail polish as well.
Marbled Chrome Nail Polish
Marbling is the newest effect added to the repertoire of nail designs. It’s not just for chrome nail polish, with works great with it. You can combine take the same colored nail polish, one matte, one chrome, to create a sophisticated effect. You can use any combination of colors, but honestly, the simpler white matte nail polish combined with aforementioned silver chrome one works best. Just make sure you stick to a primary, and don’t try to use both in equal quantities.
The chrome nail polish craze has only just begun, and we’re probably going to see designers coming up with new and interesting ways to style this must-have fall-winter look.
