Born Pretty Store Chameleon Mirror Nail Glitter Powder

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. 

Ok first let's look at this gorgeous packaging!  Hello holo!  Looks like later beams!


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!
