Isadora Chrome Nails
Wow – I’m absolutely staggered a how well the Isadora Chrome Nail Powder works! It’s an absolute revelation. If you’ve used chrome powders before then it may not be such a lightening bolt, but I haven’t and I had no clue how what the result would be.
As a step by step: apply one layer of Wonder Nail (the Isadora quick dry polish) and let it dry for about two minutes. Actually, what you need is for it to be almost dry…I do, and always have, although please don’t judge… the lip test. If you lightly stroke your nail across your lip, you can sense any ‘drag’ very easily and you’re looking for the tiniest bit of drag rather than a completely smooth pass.
Tip a small amount of the powder into the lid of the pot and pick some up on your fingertip (I am pretty sure you can use a brush but I haven’t tried this myself yet) and gently rub it into the nail until it becomes shiny.
I actually cannot believe the result I got from this on the very first go – it’s not tidy and it isn’t as elegant as it should be mainly because I really didn’t have expectations for this so didn’t put all of the effort in! You need to finish with the protective top coat.
The chrome shade you get depends upon what shade the base was to start with. Orange gives a vintage gole, pink gives a rose gold, blue gives a silver blue, white gives silver and black gives a gun metal (not shown.. it was my one mess-up). I’m really very thrilled with this and am definitely trying it on my real nails! Isadora in the UK is with FeelUnique but as per, they’re slow with the launch. I’ve found it at Nelly.com which ships internationally if you can’t wait until the end of this month. You can find all the Chrome necessities HERE.
