WHAT IS CHROME?

Chrome is a type of nail art pigment that comes in powder or flake form.  When rubbed over No Wipe Gel Top Coat or gel-like regular polish, it creates a smooth liquid look on the nails.  Chromes can come in metallic, mirror or color shifting finishes.  You can even use most satin dip powders as chrome rubs.  A little bit goes a long way!

Chrome Dust + Flakes Application

…With Regular Polish Top Coat...

1. Follow usual dip steps up to the first activator, then shape and buff the nails as needed.

2. Apply a layer of regular air dry Top Coat and allow to dry to the touch (about 51-3 minutes depending on your polish).

*If you have issues with peeling or chipping, apply a layer of regular Base Coat and let dry fully before applying top coat.

3. For a chrome finish, rub Dust or Flakes with an eyeshadow sponge in smooth swipes or circles. For a textured look, press Flakes onto surface.  Dust off the excess.  Apply more if needed to get desired coverage. 

4. Apply a layer of Water Base Top Coat or No Smudge Top Coat and allow to air dry completely to seal in the finish (about 3 minutes).

5. Finish with a layer of regular air dry Top Coat (or matte top coat) to make it last and air dry fully for about 5 minutes.

 

…With No Wipe Gel Top Coat...

1. Follow usual dip steps up to the first activator, then shape and buff the nails as needed.

2. Apply a layer of No Wipe Gel Top Coat and cure until surface is smooth and barely tacky.  About 30-60 seconds depending on the lamp and gels used.

*If you have issues with gel peeling or chipping, apply a layer of Gel Base Coat and fully cure before applying no wipe top coat.

3. For a chrome finish, rub Dust or Flakes with an eyeshadow sponge in smooth swipes or circles. For a textured look, press Flakes onto surface.  Dust off the excess.  Apply more if needed to get desired coverage. 

4. Apply another layer of No Wipe Gel Top Coat (or matte gel top coat) to seal in the finish and fully cure for 30-60 seconds (depending on your gel and lamp).

Applying Chrome with One Step Gel
