Afternoon all! For this post I'm featuring some Chameleon Mirror Nail Glitter Powder from Born Pretty store. I haven't tried out chrome or chameleon powder before but it seems fairly simple so I figured I could do it. If you want to try out the powder trend you can pick up this one HERE from Born Pretty Store. You can get a 1 gram container for $1.99. And don't forget you can save 10% using my code JTOW10.
So let's jump in and check out the goods!
Here's the cute packaging the chrome powder comes in.
You get this cute little container and a sponge brush.
The powder looks like glittery snow.
I know these powders are supposed to go over a gel that's been set under a UV light. But I don't use gel and didn't want to try so I went with China Glaze Ever Glaze topcoat over a black base. It's supposed to give you the same results as gel but you can remove it with acetone. I gave it a good college try using the sponge application brush but it just wasn't working for me. I found that rubbing the powder in with my finger worked best so that's what I did. I felt it gave good coverage so I'd say if the sponge isn't working, try something else!
I've got a little glitter powder all over my fingers! Oops!
Ok so final result! Looks like a deep green chrome polish. It's very pretty but in the end I can get this result with an actual nail polish. So would you jump on the chrome/holo/iridescent pigment train? While I didn't love this, I do think it's pretty and would try another color in the future!
