Born Pretty Store Chrome Chameleon Powder

Chrome powders have been everyone lately and I’m not surprised, they are bloody beautiful. Since I have gel topcoat now, I thought I’d give them a go. I do have silver and gold on it’s way but I received this beauty for review from Born Pretty Store.
You get a 1g pot of powder, which will honestly go a long way, you only need a dab of it to cover the whole nail and it comes with the little applicator but you can do with your finger too.

I did this crappy but effective little Instagram video to just show the application of the powder and how it works, although I m sure you have all seen it working by now in much better videos!

I found it super hard to capture the shift but it really does shift beautifully between purple and blue and the chrome effect is definitely there and could make for some beautiful nail art. I am tempted to try the raindrops effect.
 To apply I used Barry M Black Forest and topped it with a gel topcoat, then I cured that using my nifty UV torch (I have a lamp coming soon). Then I rubbed on the powder and dusted off the excess and topped it off with another gel topcoat.
I found it really easy to use and yes, there were a few patches in my application but for my first time, I’m really happy with it. Before applying the topcoat, the powder is really easy to rub away so if you mess up your application you can easily start again. 
There are quite a few steps in this mani so it’s a good job that gel polish lasts so long. I did try it with Seche, I was hoping so hard that it would work, but it just didn’t have the chrome effect.

You can get this powder here it’s #7 and bonus, it’s on sale at the moment from £5.61/$7.99 down to £1.40/$1.99, grab it while it’s such a bargain.
Don’t forget that you can use my code CBAQ10 for 10% off all non sale items too!
