    Mirror Chrome Effect Powder (5 grams)

    Have you been mesmerized by the mirror effect nails all over the internet? Me too! So I have searched for, and found what I believe to be the best mirror chrome effect pigment around. Buff this beautiful pigment over a tack-free gel top coat, and watch it turn into a mirror finish right before your eyes! Try it over black, or any other colour for a variety of finished looks. Try it over a neon coral! It looks like rose gold. Simply Stunning.

    You will receive 5 grams of high quality mirror chrome effect powder in a plastic jar with a screw on cap.

    Available in three colour options:

    •  Bronze Chrome
    • Gold Chrome
    • Silver Mirror Chrome

     Application Method for perfect mirror nails:

    1. Apply your choice of gel polish to properly prepared nails and cure as directed. {pro tip}- Black is the perfect base, but try colours other than black for super cool effects!}
    2. Top coat with Girly Bits Seal the Deal or any other tack-free gel top coat (also called no wipe, or cleanse free) and cure as directed. {pro tip}  Don't skimp on the amount of Seal the Deal you apply to the nail, and apply it in slow even strokes from cuticle to tip, with very light pressure. This will prevent the product from dragging and creating gaps and pits in the surface that you can not see (until after you cure it, then you will see it and no one wants that!). Start with a decent sized bead of Seal the Deal on the brush, and if you end up with too much product on the nail, you can wipe the brush on the neck of the bottle and then go back and use long strokes on the nail to remove excess product from the nail. The product does not dry until you cure it under the UV or LED lamp, so you have a bit of time to get your application the way you want it. Do be aware of the product self leveling (sliding to the edges of the nail by gravity) so you will want to be sure and tidy that up and away from your sidewalls and cuticles so that it doesn’t touch your skin when it’s curing. If you cure the product while it is touching your skin, it will create a ridge or edge and will make lifting much more likely. If after curing, you find you have ridges or pits or uneven application, you can lightly buff the surface of the gel with a fine grit sanding block to even out the surface. Brush off any dust and proceed with another application of Seal the Deal.
    3. Once the tack-free gel top coat is fully cured do not wipe, or touch the surface of the nail. Pick up a small amount of chrome pigment on your tool and buff it into the surface of the nail using a moderate amount of pressure.  You will find this easiest to do with a silicone tool or a clean eye makeup sponge. You can use your finger if you don't have a silicone tool, a clean eye shadow sponge, or a white makeup wedge.
    4. Keep buffing and rubbing until it transforms into a mirror shine. You don't have to worry about rubbing it off. It will stick to the tack-free surface well, and the more you buff it the shinier it will become. Pick up more product as needed. Be sure and get it all the way to the cuticle and side wall areas. After it completely covers the surface of the nail and becomes shiny buff it all in one direction for the smoothest, shiniest look.
    5. **IMPORTANT STEP** Once you have buffed it in completely, be sure and wipe away ALL excess powder from the surface of the nail, as well as the cuticle and side wall area. I have found that a kabuki makeup brush or fan brush works well, but you can use a soft lint free cloth. Be sure you have brushed away all excess chrome particles to keep that perfect mirror shine finish once you apply a top coat and prevent it from looking shimmery.
    6.  Top coat with a moderate amount of tack-free gel top coat, and cure as directed.
    7.  OPTIONAL: For an extreme mirror finish (or to fill any gaps or cover mistakes) you can follow with anther application of your Mirror Chrome nail powder following the same method from Step #3 onward. {always top coat with another application of the tack-free gel top coat and cure}
    8.  Once you are satisfied with your finished look, you can wipe with a cotton pad and 99% alcohol and you're done. You can also apply a hard gel top coat of your choice for added durability and protection.
    9.  Admire your reflection in your Mirror Chrome nails!

     

    This is a professional grade product but please use common sense and safe handling practices. Avoid inhaling this or any other type of small particles.

    Share your mirror nails on social media using the hashtag #girlybitsmirrornails for a chance to be featured! I'd love to see how they turn out.

     

    I will be adding my video tutorials asap, as well as my method for achieving this look with out gel.
