Themed Thursday – Cross my palm with silver

Nails so reflective you can check your make-up in them might sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but chrome manis are a big story for the new season.

Start with a good base coat to get a smooth finish, then use a highly-pigmented silver polish to get the best reflective finish. Finally, to prolong the life of your mani, apply a gel top coat to hold off the chipping.

For a good sparkle finish, True Brit Nail Polish in Knightsbridge is the one. With flecks of glitter suspended in a silver polish, this packs a sparkly punch. Even better, one coat is all that is needed.knightsbridge_tb

And for a super shine look, there’s Nails Inc Reflectors Nail Polish in Kings Cross Road. nailsinc_kcrGet ready to fend off those magpies; this polish is seriously shiny and reflects the light with every flick of the wrist, or wave. It also lasts up to a full five days without chipping.
