China Glaze Khrome Collection & Last day to enter giveaway

Hi! Swatches first then comments!


Milennium - silver chrome. Wow, I have never seen such a chrome like this before. It's literally mirror-like.


Metallic Muse - a blue-green chrome. I thought this was going to be similar to Adore from the Romantique collection but its different. Adore is more green. And this one is blue-ish green.


Hi-Tek - bronze/copper ish chrome. This was my favorite of the bunch. Something about it made it look so pretty :)


2030 - gold chrome. My second favorite.


Sci-Fi - silver/lavender chrome. I added lavender because it has a slight light purple tone to it. And of course my nails broke after it reaches its max length.. lol


Robotika - Soft brown chrome. This is the less reflective one. But it's still pretty :D

These went on smoothly although I had a problem with Milennium, 2030, and Metallic Muse. The problem was I used a regular base coat. And all my ridges on my nails showed through. Another problem was I realized a top coat kind of ruins the finish. Seche Vite top coat was put on Milennium, 2030, and Metallic Muse.

To solve the problem, I used two coats of Nail Tek Foundation II base coat. Which is a ridge filling base coat. I put them under Hi-Tek, Sci-Fi, and Robotika. As you can see ridges are less shown and more smoother application. And since these dry fast. I didn't use a top coat for these three. And voila, it looks better than the other three!

That's all I have for you today. And don't forget to enter my giveaway. Today's the last day, I'm accepting all entries till 11:59 PM Eastern USA time! Good luck all!
