Born Pretty Store

Chrome Glitter Pigment 

Hello, I'm here to review the next 2 colours of Chrome Glitter from Born Pretty Store. These chromes are hard to capture their true beauty, but in person they are extremely pretty and very shiny. Maybe for some, the chrome look isn't as mirror finished as they'd like, but for me these glitters are awesome. So with colours 3 and 4, both applied over a black gel base and no wipe topcoat, using my finger to buff the glitter into the polish, and a dry clean lint free wipe to buff and shine.
My photos with the white flowers are before applying another coat of no wipe topcoat. The blue flowers are with topcoat.



The final application of topcoat doesn't make much difference to the chrome look. Then I tried over normal polish, for those who don't use gel and asked me if it would still work. I am aware I'm not the first to try this, but I'm using different polishes.

Using a cheap black polish from Saffron as a base I applied just 1 coat. When dry I applied Essence Fast Dry Topics and waited till it was almost dry. Applied chrome pigment number 3 using my finger. The effect is nice, and I only top coated my pinky and ring finger, which as you can see does change the look. So yes you could use these chromes with normal polish, but you can't really topcoat them.
I'm really liking these glitter pigments, and will share 5 and 6 with you soon. My 10% discount code is below.

  1. This chrome thing is really taking over the polish world, isn't it?

  2. Very pretty! I don't do gel though and its not quite as pretty over regular polish, so I'll probably skip this trend. For now at least. :)

  3. I also don't do gel polishes, I just don't get too excited enough for me to try it on my long natural nails. However they do look nice on other people. Nice review =)
