Nail Art: Mirrored Nails

Mirrored nails or chrome nails are fast becoming one of this season’s must have trends so obvs I needed to give it a go!

I’ve watched a few vids but thought I’d just try a few things to see what was the best way to do them.

So first up I started with my go-to Nails Inc Nail Kale base coat as I thought the powder would stick to it better.


After trying my thumb nail out I then decided to put a pearlescent polish on – Ciate’s Angel Wings as the powder I’ve got is a light one and on top of this pearly white colour came out better!

After applying the powder to my nails with the make up brush I got with it, applying it in circular motions until I could see the mirrored effect, I brushed any excess powder around the edge away.

I was a bit unsure as to whether I needed to apply s top coat, so using my thumb once again as a Guinea pig I applied my Nails Inc Caviar too coat…u thought it would seal the powder ensuring it wouldn’t sweep off but in reality it took away a bit of the sheen as you can probably see in the image.


I bought the pot of powder from eBay for about Β£7 and am really pleased…it was so easy to apply and I’m hoping it stays on for long enough – we’ll see how they get on after tonight’s clubbercise!
