If you read Fridays blog you got to see the look I wore to my nieces wedding. These are the nails I got done for the occasion. Yes they match my dress, but it actually happened a bit by chance. I walked into the nail salon with a chrome nail look in mind and when I showed an image to the lady who does my nails she excitedly pulled out a new stack of chrome nail powders. One of them was this gorgeous blue and emerald green duo chrome shade and I knew it would look super cool.
I stuck to my usual shape which is a slightly rounded edge on the stiletto shape and as always I asked her to keep it short enough to be able to comfortably partake in every day activities like opening my sons car seat, changing diapers and typing on my keyboard.
Normally I am never really matchy matchy with things but this worked too well with my gown to ignore so I went with it.
I will add that the chrome powders do chip a whole lot quicker then your typical gel polish so I did have to go for a touch up mid week. The best way to preserve it would most likely be a good top coat. after getting my touch up I went over each nail with my favorite Essie gel setter top coat and it really did help to keep it in place a day or two longer.
I absolutely love how my nails turned out this time! Would you dare to do emerald green nails or is it just a bit much? Let me know in the comments form, I love to hear your opinions!
Thanks so much for stopping in!
