Floral Stamping on Chrome Nails

Hey there!  Today's post is one of a mani I wore just for fun.  No review, no challenge theme.  Just for me!  I know lots of people are sick of the chrome nail trend but I'm not one of them.  I've always loved silver nail polish and the more metallic, the better.  So when the chrome powders came out, even though I'm not a big gel polish user, I bought some from Born Pretty Store and no-wipe top coat, etc etc.  BUT that powder still looked grainy so I more recently bit the bullet and bought the silver (and gold...and rose gold) from Daily Charme since it looked even smoother.  And it really is so I guess it's worth the extra dollars.  And since I'm in Canada and our dollar exchange is terrible, it was a lot of extra dollars!  But the super chrome-y silver powder let me wear these and I loved them so I won't complain.

As with most chrome powders, I used a gel base of Madam Glam Perfect Black.  The no-wipe top coat I have is from Bio Seaweed Gel.  I did two rounds of top coat/powder to make it super duper smooth.  My photos don't show anywhere near as awesome as it was.  It really was like having metal nails.

For the stamping I used Fab Ur Nails FUN 13 and Mundo de Unas Black.  The flowers were filled with Moonflower Polish Violeta and Amarillo.  To keep it shiny I used a top coat that came with the Born Pretty metallic silver polish.

Well that's all for today.  Thanks for swinging by.  I'll be back tomorrow with the latest 26 Great Nail Art Ideas prompt.
