Looking to be a trend setter? Get ready to achieve the perfect Mirror Chrome mani!
You can achieve 2 very different colors with our Mirror Chrome Shades depending on how you apply the product! If you use the regular dipping method with the Mirror Chrome Shades, you will achieve a sparkly glitter finished manicure. If you use the rub on method with the Mirror Chrome Shades, you will achieve a smooth reflective mirror chrome finish. Please note: For a full Mirror Chrome effect we recommend using the D7 Barbara (black dip powder) as the base. Please see the application instructions below:
1. Remove Shine - Using a fine drill bit or buffer/file, remove the shine from your nails.
