Essie: No Place Like Chrome

Before we jump in to Essie’s No Place Like Chrome and an easy and fun way to turn it into a big eye catcher, I like to give all the girls that have participated in the 30 day challenge a big pat on the shoulder. Great job girls! I’ve seen so much amazing works of art. Very inspiring! Lovely!

Also, have you noticed this amazing giveaway by the lovely Brijit at Brijit Digits? You can win some amazing polishes!

And how about this giveaway by the sweet Luchessa at Beauty Expression by Luchessa?! You can win a Kindle Fire – Smartphone DNA! But hurry, it ends by the end of this month!

Okay, on to today’s mani: No Place Like Chrome by Essie from their Mirror Metallic Collection is a silver metallic/chrome. It’s opaque in one (slightly thicker) easy and quick drying coat, but I used two thin coats here. I advice to use a good ridgefiller before applying this because without it -as with all metallics/chromes- you’ll see every imperfection on your nails. essie no place like chromeessie no place like chrome2foilThis polish screamed for an ‘out of space’ nail art. I chose to add three different colors of foil. This is the easiest way to turn a ‘regular’ mani in to a big eye catcher! I added some splots of foil glue with a small nail art brush. After that was dry I randomly ‘dabbed’ on the foil 😀foil40foil2
Have you used foil for a manicure already?

  1. Nice! I was looking at the Essie chrome polish in stores recently and trying to decide.
    Do you happen to know if there is a nail polish that can look as metallic silver as a minx or nail foil? Sally Hansen chrome used to be really metallic..but I haven’t found anything that is mirror reflective yet
