- Sticky Tape
- OPI GelColor Base Coat
- OPI GelColor Alpine Snow (2 layers)
- OPI GelColor Chrome Effects No-Cleanse Top Coat
- OPI Chrome Effects in Gold Digger
- OPI Chrome Effects in Bronzed by The Sun
Start by applying OPI Gel Colour Base Coat, followed by two layers of OPI Gel Colour in Alpine Snow. This crisp white gel colour sets the stage for a bright beautiful chrome powder application. Apply a small piece of sticky tape to cover the top two-thirds of your nail. This creates a barrier to separate the chrome powder into three distinct sections.
Time to apply your first layer of Chrome Effects powder! Begin with Bronzed By the Sun. Using a small makeup sponge apply a generous amount of powder to the exposed lower third of the nail. Use a dust brush to remove any excess powder.
Remove the tape to reveal three distinct beautiful sections. To remove any unwanted powder, use isopropyl alcohol on a lint-free pad. Finish with OPI Chrome Effects No Cleanse Top Coat. This will seal and protect your gel colour and chrome powders.
