How do you apply Chrome Powder?


This easy-to-do nail enhancement only needs one product to work its magic and that is the No Wipe Top Coat! The pigments will adhere to the cured Top Coat to create your chosen design. 

Follow these easy steps to make your Chrome Powder nails last up to 2-3 weeks!

  • Properly Prep your nails and apply Base & Gel Colour coats as normal.

  • Apply a No Wipe Top Coat and cure for 30 seconds in your Lamp.

  • After that, get a tiny amount of your chosen Chrome Powder onto your applicator brush.

  • Rub the powder onto the nail until full coverage that you want is achieved.

  • Take a Nail Buffer and gently run this over the free edge of your nail - this will remove any loose powder that will otherwise prevent your Top Coat from sticking.

  • You can use a Dust Brush to remove any other powder too, and before applying a final layer of No Wipe Top Coat. 

  • Cure for 60 seconds.

One of our favorite ways to use Chrome pigments is to create this pretty blocking design - and here's how you can easily create this:

  • Apply 1-2 coats of your chosen gel polish and cure for 60 seconds between each new coat.

  • Apply thin coats of No Wipe Top Coat. This is how Chrome Powder sticks to your nail! Always remember to apply the top coat to where you're putting your chosen Chrome Powder. 

Tip: You can use a nail art brush for the application if needed.

  • Cure for 30 seconds in your Lamp.

  • Using your applicator, take a small amount of Chrome Powder and rub it onto your nail to make the design. Then dust off any excess powder using a dust brush.

  • Once you're satisfied with your design, apply a No Wipe Top Coat

  • Finally, cure for 60 seconds.
