Embrace 24+ Captivating Chrome Nail Ideas: From Futuristic Titanium to Strawberry Glaze.

 

Glazed Donut Nails

@NAILSBYZOLA

Here, we have classic glazed donut nails by Hailey Bieber’s manicurist, Zola Ganzorigt. To achieve the look, she used OPI’s Funny Bunny Nail Polish ($14) and Tin Man Can Chrome Powder.

 

Rose Chrome Nails

@CNDWORLD

These rosy chrome nails offer a warmer take on the trend. They were created using CND’s Liquid & Powder in Warm Pink ($23), SHELLAC No Wipe Top Coat ($16), and Over the Top Effects Nail Pigment ($11) in Off the Chain. For this layered look, a trip to the salon will be in order. But hey, for results like this: It’s worth it.

 

Checkered Chrome Nails

@PAINTBOXNAILS

Another very popular look in 2023? Checkered nails. Combine the two for a wholly unique take on both trends.

 

Chocolate Glazed Donut Nails

@NAILSBYZOLA

Allow us to introduce you to chocolate-glazed donut nails. Another Ganzorigt creation, this mani was crafted with OPI’s Stay Strong Gel Base Coat ($19), DND Gel Polish ($10) in Coffee Bean and Spiced Brown, OPI Chrome Effects in Tin Man Can, and OPI’s Stay Shiny Gel Top Coat ($20).

 

White Chrome Nails

@HOUSEOFNAILSBYELSY

For a more opaque white chrome look—like the one here—you’ll want to start with a solid white base coat. Lights Lacquer in Paper Snow ($11) should do the trick.

 

Magenta Chrome Nails

@NAILS_OF_LA

Here’s another example of how using an opaque base color will make your chrome nails look more futuristically bold, as opposed to the minimalist vibe of glazed donut nails. We’re obsessed with this magenta chrome mani.

 

Chrome-Like Shimmer

@LOLO.NAILEDIT

If you don’t have access to chrome nail powder and none of your eyeshadows work to recreate the look, you can achieve a similar finish with an ultra-fine glitter nail polish, like the OPI shade used here. While the artist didn’t share the exact polish, OPI’s Infinite Shine2 Long-Wear Lacquer ($14) in Throw Me A Kiss should do the trick.

 

Lavender Chrome French Tips

@NAILS_OF_LA

Just because you opt for a sheer glazed donut take on chrome nails doesn’t mean you can’t do so in bolder colors. Case in point: This lilac-tinted chrome nail look.

 

Titanium Chrome Nails

@NAILSBYZOLA

Going extra chrome, Ganzorigt used the Dashing Diva Glaze Gel Nail Strips ($16) in Titanium Glaze to achieve this eye-catching manicure.

 

Chrome Blob Nails

@NAILS_OF_LA

Excuse us while we swoon over these globbed-up chrome nails by celebrity manicurist Brittney Boyce, who works with Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian, among other A-listers.

 

Chrome Foil Nails

@PAINTBOXNAILS

Part chrome, part foil, part negative space: These pastel set serves it all.

 

Emoji Chrome Ombré Nails

@NAILS_OF_LA

Another way to wear chrome nails? Opt for an ombré fade topped off with metallic nail stickers in an ever-so-slightly darker shade, as Boyce did here.

 

Strawberry Glazed Donut Nails

@NAILSBYZOLA

First, there were glazed donut nails. Then there were chocolate-glazed donut nails. It was only a matter of time before Ganzorigt dreamt up strawberry-glazed donut nails—and we’re just as smitten with this look as we are with the others.

 

Gold Chrome Tips

@CHAUNLEGEND

Love a French mani? Opt for gold chrome tips like celebrity manicurist Chaun Legend did here for celebrity wardrobe stylist Maeve Reilly.

 

Gold Chrome Accents

@YO_KESHH

We love how this set makes use of chrome—with subtle, minimalist, and abstract gilded tips.

 

Rainbow Chrome Ombré Nails

@MYPRETTYSET

Multicolor ombre chrome? We’re screaming. Of course, to achieve such an intricate star-studded rainbow nail look, you’ll almost certainly need to enlist the help of a pro. But for nails that look like this? Worth it.

 

Chrome Crystal Cloud Nails

@NAILDITBYALYSSA

For all the crystal girlies out there, these cloud-like aura chrome nails are giving off all the majestic vibes.

 

Opal Chrome

@THENAILBOXXCHI

For a more subtle chrome-y finish, consider a sheer polish topped off with holographic chrome powder.

 

Cool Pale Pink Chrome Nails

@NATALIEPNAILS

For the most natural take on the chrome nail trend, use a chrome powder on a clear base. The mani above, however, was actually created without any powder: To get the look, book a mani and ask for GELCARE in Lavender Water and South Sea Pearl.

 

Rainbow Chrome Tips

@BETINA_GOLDSTEIN

You don’t have to cover your entire nail to partake in the chrome nails trend. Here, celebrity manicurist Betina Goldstein opted for a rainbow of mini chrome French tips.

 

Yellow Chrome Nails

@YO_KESHH

Add a little sunshine to your life with a bright yellow chrome mani like the one above.

 

Unicorn Chrome Nails

@SWAKNAILS

These beautiful glazed donut nails were created using the Nails-Luxe Iridescent Chrome Palette, which, unfortunately, is only available in the UK. Next time you’re in London, you’ll want to scoop this palette (and the brand’s other offerings).

 

Holographic Chrome

@THENAILBOXXCHI

When considering a bold nail trend like chrome nails, consider switching up your nail shape, too. Here, you can see how stunning a chrome mani looks on stiletto-shaped nails.

 

Baby Pink Chrome Stiletto Nails

@CHAUNLEGEND

While on the topic of stiletto nails, check out these baby pink chrome French tips by Legend. We love how pearlescent the base color is.
