There are several options when choosing a design for your next manicure, including holographic nail art, 3D nail art, and much more. Although pastels and vibrant hues are typically reserved for spring, there are no rules in beauty, so the current chrome nail trend is ideal for the upcoming season.
It's not shocking that this nail trend has returned to our list of favourite manicures given how prominent metallic makeup seems right now. We adore how creative and attractive chrome nail art can be, in addition to the dazzling sheen that chrome nails display. Therefore, schedule your next visit or prepare your nail kit (along with your matte nail polish), and continue reading because we're about to share eight of our best chrome nail art trends.
With a chrome manicure, you may give your nails a shiny, mirror-like appearance. Silver, grey, blue, and gold are just a few of the hues that it comes in. If you're pressed for time, getting chrome nails is quite simple. So, we’ve curated a list of chrome nail art designs that’ll make your digits shine and your face smile.
In the hands of a skilled nail artist, a nail art brush and a little bit of freedom can occasionally offer amazing results. For the ultimate bespoke manicure, if you or your nail technician has a steady hand, let your imagination run wild and freestyle some metallic doodling. And if you want to imitate this trend at home and still achieve the effect, chrome nail decals and a top coat are all you need.
Even if you want to attempt the chrome trend, you don't have to give up pastel nails if you can't seem to. To paint your nails, look for a nail polish that has a metallic finish rather than one that shimmers. You may either keep it simple and let the solid colour stand out, or you can use the pastel chrome hue as a base for a more clever design. As you don't need much space to get the effect, this is also a wonderful choice if you're seeking a chrome nail art design for short nails.
This pleasing melting design, which was created using many chrome polishes in various hues, is proof that chrome designs can be colourful, too. If you want a completely unique set, this is a terrific alternative because you can pick your colour combinations and choose your melting shapes.

To get your nails ready for gel polish, file and buff them. Form a proper shape with a nail file, and then push any skin that is overlapping the nail back with a cuticle stick. Use a soft brush to brush away the nail dust after buffing the nails with a buffer.
Using gel nail polish, apply a base coat. For a smooth and even finish, ensure the bristles are parallel to the direction in which the nail is growing. The base coat will protect your nails from staining and prolong the life of your manicure.
Apply coloured gel polish with a brush. Use a dark hue, such as black, for a more obvious chrome effect. You might wish to apply a second layer if you're using a lighter hue.
To cure the polish, place your hands under a UV or LED lamp. To determine how long to place your hands under the lamp, according to the manufacturer's instructions for the nail paint. It will take longer if you use a handheld UV or LED light because you can only hold it over one nail at once.
Use a teeny bit of chrome dust on the applicator. If your chrome powder didn't come with an applicator, you can either use a rubber-gloved finger or a foam eyeshadow applicator. Start with a very tiny quantity and if you need more, you can always add more.
Apply the chrome powder to the nail in one motion by brushing. Start at the cuticle and move toward the nail's tip while applying minimal pressure. Use several strokes if necessary to ensure that the powder is applied to the entire nail.
Voila! You’re ready to flaunt your nails now.
