Hailey Bieber's Chrome Nails & How to Request Them
Just like it's essential to set up a hair and makeup trial to finalize your wedding day glam look, we also recommend doing a few test runs for your nails too. Perfecting your wedding manicure may take a few tries, especially if you want to experiment with colors and shapes you don't normally wear. Plus, with so many prewedding events on your calendar, it won't hurt to have a fabulous mani for all of them.
By now, it's likely that most nail technicians will know what chrome nails are. But when you go to the salon for your mani appointment, we still recommend bringing photos of your preferred look to show exactly what you want. While Ganzorigt's process includes gel nail polish, you could also ask for acrylics or dip powder, depending on your preferred mani style.
As for what to call the style when you're sitting at the salon, say you'd like a "pearlescent chrome nail." To make sure it's an authentic replica, here's exactly how to ask for Hailey Bieber's glazed donut nails:
- Manicure style: Gel, acrylic or clear gel X, if using extensions
- Shape: Narrow oval or almond
- Color: OPI Funny Bunny (or your preferred shade)
- Chrome Powder: OPI Tin Man Can
