15 Festive Gold Chrome Nails to Send Off 2023 With!


There’s less than a month until the end of the year, meaning we have 1 more visit to the nail salon, so I say we make it worth it!

If silver was all the hype in the summer, this winter we’re dipping our fingers in gold! Let’s immerse ourselves in opulence during the Holidays with these stunning gold chrome nails!

What Base to Use for Chrome Nails?

The most commonly used base color for chrome nails is black, as it makes the metallic effect more visible. However, this is not the only color you can apply chrome powder to. You can use any highly pigmented dark nail polish as a base to create a unique effect and different shades of gold. You can also use white nail polish as a base if you want to achieve a lighter, pearl-like effect.

Are Chrome Nails Long Lasting?

After the chrome powder is applied, it is sealed with a top coat which prevents it from rubbing off the nail bed. However, if you have a long manicure, or you haven’t covered the edges of the nail too well with the top coat, you can expect to see the base color peeking through around the second week. Overall, chrome gel nails can last you up to 4 weeks with the right maintenance.

There’s something about the almond and stiletto nail shapes that’s incredibly feminine and alluring. I became especially fond of them after seeing Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle clear kitty claw manicure on “The Batman”, and nothing has been the same for me ever since. For a more festive appearance, you can dip the tips in gold chrome powder and create a beautiful ombre effect that melts into nude or taupe nail polish.
