Trend Alert: Chrome Nails

Leave it to Rihanna, the queen bee of nail polish, to take an opaque, shimmery metallic color to the next level. Chrome is more of a powerful gold-and-silver version of its true silver sister gunmetal and it is also much darker than pale gray.

I still can't quite believe that metallic nails are still this much of a sensation. Even LC can't get enough of glittery metallic nails! Below are a couple of rocker-cool chrome polish suggestions for Summer. Enjoy!


Essie Steel-ing the Scene ($8) is a bronzey-pewter (effectively a chrome) shade of nail polish that contains flecks and packs a lot of punch. For those of you who are too shy to wear this on your nails, it makes for a great toenail color.

Tropez Super Pearl Nail Enamel in Black Pearl ($1.99) is a deep, opaque gray that looks amazing with one sheer coat of Tini Beauty's Gold Haze Topper as a topcoat. The result is a metallic, high-shine glossy finish — and the best part is that it's a unique color!

Do any of you remember Chanel's "Metal Argent" (which means silvery metal)? That pretty much fits the chrome bill. I was wondering when shades like that would make a comeback:-)

luv shimmery golds and silvers, but I don't think I could pull off a gunmetal - it looks too witchy...

Yea, I too love her outlandish trend setting colors, but I wish that her manicurist would trim her nails and round the edges! I also wish the Essie shade had a little more "Omph" to it. I'm sure covering it with a little Seche Vite will make it more appealing...!I have passed this chrome trend (Ladies there ARE better shades, don't let these 2 scare you off!) and nary a blip on the beauty scene I noted.I THINK that the time for this colors hay-day will be with the coming fall fashion. I like the idea of bright colors for warm weather, but I just colored my (now short) nails a midnight-cherry-purple this evening so who am I to talk? ~_~

This is pretty but I think it would look best on short manicured nails. IMO long nails couldn't carry it off.

I love the Chrome nails look but Rihanna's nails are too long and square for this color.
