From time to time I go through the digital edition of Nails Magazine to see what the pros are doing. On the cover of the February issue I've seen some really awesome white-silver nails with pearls on top and I tried to recreate them on my own nails. They used exclusive nail foils to create the chrome pattern (p. 63), but I don't have any similar foils at the moment, so I decided to use Stargazer Chrome and my Dashica Big SdP D stamping plate. I started with two coats of Essie - Blanc and one coat of BTGN Top Sealer. Then I added the stamping and wasn't sure about the pearls anymore. My stamping was not as detailed as the nail foil and in addition my nails are shorter which made the pearls look a bit too much. I decided to add them just on top of the nail and in a straight line to avoid a busy design. On top I added another coat of BTGN Top Sealer.
No pearls and no top coat:

Chrome looks better in real, I love the mirror effect! It looks best with stamping because there are no brush strokes, but on its own Chrome is still very beautiful. If you're looking for a mirror effect nail polish, you might wanna check this one out!
