Mirror chrome nails can be achieved two ways. The most common method is to apply a base colour (usually black) and then a chrome powder is rubbed on. The base helps the powder adhere and the result is a high-shine chrome finish.

The second method is much easier, with just a nail polish that dries off to a mirror finish. Most silver polish won’t cut it, so it’s important to look for reviews before you purchase.
