Swatch and Review: IsaDora Chrome Nails SS17

Welcome back!

You guys know how chrome nails have been a trend for quite some while now? First came the chrome-like polishes that where either too streaky or too glittery. After that came the chrome powders, but it only worked for gel nails… Until now!

IsaDora has released a new chrome powder together with a top coat that is designed to work without ruining the chrome effect. In other words, no gel och lights needed!

Start with checking out my tutorial and you will understand just how to use it and also how simple the application is:

Before I guide you through the swatches, I though I would share my opinion of the powder and the collection. The collection comes with five different colored nail polishes, the chrome nails top coat and the powder. The point is to use the same powder but achieve different effects using different colored base polishes.

Like you could see in my tutorial, it really only takes a couple of minutes to achieve this chrome effect. The top coat also does the job perfectly and doesn’t ruin the chrome effect at all! I do however at times struggle to get the powder to stick around my cuticles and at the edge of my nails. After practicing a couple of times I did get the hang of it. The key is to apply the powder as soon the polish is dry enough to rub it. If you wait even a couple of seconds to long, the polish will be to dry. That’s why you need to paint your hands one at a time.

Over all, this is a great collection and I am so glad that I can finally wear gorgeous chrome nails. And I love the idea of switching the base color to achieve different looks.


The amazing chrome effect, duh! Quick and easy to apply. The face that you can change base color for different effects.

It takes a little bit of practice. Short time frame where the powder applies perfectly.

Hi sweeties!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that the new year has started out great for you. For me, the Christmas ”holiday” is, like always, not very holiday-ish. We always have the last exam for the semester after Christmas, so I have been studying and when I haven’t been studying I have been having anxiety… Lol.

Anyways, I thought it was about time a posted some nail art and also a video tutorial.

You’ll find all the info you need in the description box in the video.

Hope you like it!
