Today I’m thrilled to share one of the hottest trends right now with you, chrome, holo and magic shifting powder. This is the first time I’m showing these types of powders on my blog! The ones I received were sent to me by What’s Up Nails in the USA. The powders they sell are some of the best (if not the best!) quality you can find. These work great not just with gel polish but with regular polish too. Let’s take a look!
What’s Up Nails sells holographic powder (left), magic shifting powder aka multichrome (center) in 9 shades total and silver chrome powder (right). Each jar comes with 1 gram of product which doesn’t sound like a lot but a teeny tiny bit goes a very long way so these will last you forever! I’ve created a nail art manicure with each one. Although my preferred way is to use these with gel polish and no-wipe top coat, you can use these with regular polish too.
First up is the mani I created with the magic shifting powder in the colour Paradise. These chrome powders look beautiful over any colour! I layered it over a dark shimmery blurple. The shade I chose shifts from teal to purple to pink. It is much stronger than any multichrome polish I’ve ever tried, the shift is much “tighter” and it takes almost no effort to see the full colour shift on your nail without having to move your hands.
I started with China Glaze Up All Night as my base on all nails. Then I applied no-wipe top gel to all nails. On my pointer and pinkie I applied the Magic Shifting powder in Paradise using a silicone brush (an eyeshadow applicator works too!). On my middle finger I first applied What’s Up Nails Scales vinyls before carefully applying the powder. On my ring finger I added a multichrome rhinestone and some gold steel balls, both from Born Pretty Store. Finished with top coat.
Up next is my chrome powder manicure. With this silver powder you can create a mirror finish on your nails. I could genuinely see myself reflected! It’s insanely gorgeous!
I started with Madam Glam Perfect Black as my base on all nails before applying No-Wipe top coat. On my pointer and pinkie I applied the chrome powder using a silicone brush. On my middle finger and ring finger I used What’s Up Nails Thorns stencils. Finished with top coat.
For my final mani I used the gorgeous holographic powder! This is the strongest linear holo effect you can achieve. It’s just blinding! This shows how it looked in direct light but in the sunlight it is even more spectacular. And of course if you move and shift your nails. You simply have to see this in person. So so pretty!
From pointer to pinkie I used Bundle Monster in Dance-Tronauts, Electric Fields, Escape Velocity and Fairy Fantastic. As is recommended with powders I used a no-wipe top coat first. Then I used What’s Up Nails Sunrise stencils to leave a bare half moon so you could see the colour underneath as the holo covers up most of the base. Then I applied the Holographic powder using a silicone brush and finish with top coat.
You can purchase the What’s Up Nails powders via the official website. You can use my code EMILY10 for 10% off (nail vinyls only). I absolutely loved these powders, they aren’t cheap but they will last a lifetime and the finish far exceeds any cheap powders I have tried. The quality of these is simply the best!
