Dark chrome nails

Chrome nails come in many forms, but this spring, expect to see dark chrome taking the spotlight. It starts with a dark nail polish as the base and is then buffed with chrome powder after to get this futuristic effect that’s everywhere on social media, including on the incredible Toronto-based @ManisbyManu__.
