Metallic nail polishes have always been popular, but Chrome Nails takes that mirrored, high-shine finish to the next level.” Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 2.56.20 PM Beauty expert Vivienne Curran dubs metallic/chrome nails an ideal way to draw attention to an outfit thanks to the shiny facade. Vivienne is confident this look will remain popular over the next 12 months and has shared her advice on how to do it at home. “To create this look you can use chrome nail polish, metallic nail wraps or even a highly pigmented powder,” she shares. “Silver chrome nails were the first to become popular, as seen on Gigi Hadad at the 2016 Met Gala, however, we now see gold and rose gold becoming popular.” Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 2.34.14 PM Other celebrities who have picked up and promoted the trend include Rihanna, Kylie Jenner and Lucy Hale, all of whom have flaunted their fancy fingertips in recent months.
