OK, so the result isn't exactly the same and mirror-like, but it comes pretty close. I purchased my first chrome nail polish on Ebay in the beggining of 2009. It was Stargazer in shade #232. Later I managed to get my hands on the Maybelline Mirror Image polish. I wrote a comparison post on Stargazer and Maybelline chrome polish, which happens to be the most popular post I wrote and is also a reason for the post you're reading right now. China Glaze (which was my favorite brand for a long time) didn't need much time to come up with their own Khrome collection for Fall/Winter 2009. FYI: I don't count their Romantiques collection as a chrome one.
Chrome nail polishes are awesome, but they're also a pain in the rear. Why, you ask?
*Chrome nail polish will emphasise every little ridge on your nails. You can use a ridge filling base underneath your chrome polish, but that takes us to the next 'pain in the ass' part:
*It's almost impossible to apply chrome nail polish over your regular base coat. You're gonna need some practice and a lot of patience. And to top it all:
*Chrome nail polish chips super easily.
If you're willing to go through the PITA moments, then I suggest you this chrome polish - China Glaze Millenium. It's practically the same as Stargazer and Maybelline one. I'm wearing both ChG and Stargazer chrome nail polish on all of these photos and there's no difference between them. I'd add a Maybelline one as well, but I don't have it anymore.
What are your thoughts on chrome nail polish?
