How to make unicorn chrome nails

Want to stand out like a unicorn in a field of horses? Celebrate uniqueness with a chic wardrobe, flawless makeup, and unicorn chrome nails. For those who embrace nail designs that are distinct in appearance, understand that a unique design doesn't always equate to comfort or functionality. Fortunately, unicorn chrome nails are comfortable and subtle enough in appearance for home, the office, or even a night out with friends.
The light pink nail polish used in this manicure is soft and feminine. Light pink, and sometimes light purple, are often used in depictions of unicorns.
Go sparingly on the nail powder; the nails on ring fingers should not look completely coated in glittery powder. The goal is to enhance the hard gel with a touch of chrome powder. While creating unicorn chrome nails, remember what makes a unicorn so magical — it looks like any other horse, until you see its horn.
