Retro minty chrome nails

Hello Lovelies!

The chrome polish I used for these nails is one of my favorite silver polishes, it's opaque in one coat, great for stamping, and ridiculously shiny. But it came from a set of generic unnamed polishes from the dollar tree that I haven't seen since, and it's a mini bottle so I use it pretty sparingly. Do any of you lovelies know of a polish similar to this one?
I went with some retro 50's inspired nails today, I painted just the tops of my nails with the chrome polish, and then filled in the rest with RGB Minty, it's a seafoam green creme polish that's almost a one coater, but not quite.




I added some dots with black acrylic paint and outlined the edge between the chrome and mint polishes. I waited until the dots were completely dry to topcoat, acrylic paint tends to smear if it's wet.




Thanks for the visit!

  2. Holy moly! These nails are freaking fab!! Love the retro feel and the mint is so bright! Awesome job!! I can't believe you get one-coat coverage with a polish from Dollar Tree! Great find. I don't stamp, but I find that Julep's Rebel is a great silver, with some holo reflection, and I can get away with one coat. Although my next suggestion isn't a pure silver, there's a China Glaze polish called Gossip Over Gimlets, and from your pictures, it looks VERY similar, albeit a bit on the pewter side. Hope you can find a replacement! It's always the worst when you run out of a favourite polish.
    Thanks for linking up and sharing this fantastic mani! :)
