Nails Dipped in Glitter and Chrome

Summer nail trends range from bright neons, out of this world nail designs, nail coverings, embellished nails, etc.. You think of it, and it has been done in the nail world.  One look that has and in my book will forever be "timeless" throughout all of the four seasons is Metallic "Chrome" nails, and also Bling "Glitter" encrusted nails.  No matter what your weapon of choice is , whether its press on nails, nail coverings, nail appliques, or the classic- just plain ol' nail lacquer - it is a trend that is easy to achieve.  Here are some colors which are in my current "nail lacquer playlist " . 

Katy Perry for OPI Collection 

Last Friday Night

Loving this BBB (Bottle of Blue Bling)  !!  This glittery blue color  reminds me of  the beach  - not the American beaches, yet the beaches where the water is beautiful and you can see the little schools of fish swim by.  This color needs no base coat at all, but if you'd like - I would use a white shade as a base.

Not Like The Movies

This picture does not do this shade any justice.  This green/gold/orange metal  fusion  looks great on the nails,  it almost gives the nails a hologram effect. Looks great especially on darker tones - which we all will be this summer once the tans set in.  For an edgy boost, top this color with OPI Shatter Top Coat in "Black" , or a more subtle "Silver" . 

Teenage Dream

I like to describe this color as an "party in a bottle" ,  the delicate pretty assortment of colors in a glitter form are great alone or layered on top of another color for an extra luxe feeling.  

Mattése Elite Nail Polish - Sugar-Kissed Foils Collection 

This collection of foil shades is chrome meets pastels, its actually the Spring 2011 collection - but the chrome effect is hot for summer as well !  

Macadamia Mosaic

You can never go wrong with some green nails to make everyone else  "green with envy" when they see your  fabulous nails!

Midnight Swirl

I absolutely LOVE this color on my nails! It looks great on your  toes as well, its like a little  having bejeweled  toes!

Raspberry Star

Pink is my favorite color - and of course a shade of pink would be on my list.  Its pink chrome nails that are affordable  (in comparison to other nail options to achieve the same look )  -  under $10 for this polish !!! 

Golden Peeps

Nude nails have been a fashion forward option for the past couple of years.  To have a metal finish like this color is avant garde as far as I'm concerned.  I love this color - and it is highly recommended. 

All of these fabulous colors from OPI and Mattése Elite from Rickys NYC stores and website 

Happy Shopping !!!!
