All That Shimmers Is Chrome: The Nail Art Trends That Are Bringing Reflective Back


It’s official – chrome is making a comeback this season, and its bigger, better and more shimmery than ever before! Perfect for adding some sparkle and dazzle to everyday, chrome nails are the perfect way to embrace the colder months with style and finesse. All of those usual colours that we love in the winter, like gold and silver, are back this season, but as you’ve never seen them before.

Here are just some of the nail art trends that will have you skipping into the winter months with chrome nails that shimmer and shine! Who needs sunshine when we have nail shine? Okay, yes; it would be nice to have both…

Unicorn chrome

So, remember how big the unicorn hair trend was earlier this year? Well now you can truly coordinate your look with unicorn nails! These lilac-white chrome nails are an absolute dream and will help you carry you through the wintery months in style.

Black gunmetal

This option for a more sinister shade looks amazing. Black gunmetal is shiny yet still has that slightly spooky feel to it. Plain black is just deadly boring; gunmetal black is deadly beautiful!

Holographic chrome

Just like the holographic hair trend that rocked our socks earlier this year, holographic nail colours are also really catching on. With an almost ghostly feel to the holograph effect, these nails definitely bring on the sparkle big time!

When you like the best of both worlds, why not opt for ombre? A great way to show your loyalty to gold, whilst still showing silver your love. Ombre nails allow you to enjoy the combination of the two shades, without the need to feel guilty! Win win!

Copper chrome

The best way to welcome the winter with a brilliant bang is to rock the copper chrome nail look. One of the most wintery colours that you can get your hands on, copper chrome tops the autumn nail colour charts for us.

Chrome accents

For something completely different to the all over nail polish, and a little more minimalistic, you could toy with the idea of chrome accents. Distinctive and stylish, without looking too in-your-face, chrome accents will have your squaring off your winter nail plans!

Mermaid nails

If you want your nails to shimmer and dazzle, with an aqua-inspired sprinkle of mermaid loveliness, then check out the latest mermaid nail designs. Our favourite colours go into the melting pot to result in nails that Ariel herself would be singing about! Purple, blue, turquoise and green work together to bring you the most beautiful nails you could wish for.

Get a head start this winter and let these ideas inspire your nail art desires. Chrome is the style to watch this season, so dare to be bold with gunmetal black or sparkle away in mermaid hues.
