So OPI Finally jumped on the chrome bandwagon!! Here is the information from one of the websites they are for sale on:
4 reasons Chrome Effects is THE choice for chrome powders
• OPI is the industry’s most trusted brand with a reputation built on quality
• an industry first – Chrome Effects can be used over gel polish AND nail lacquer
• only brand with proven 2+ weeks wear for gel applications
• quick and easy add-on service to gel polish and nail lacquer services
I havent actually tried these yet – from what I hear they work pretty well but in all honesty I feel like OPI is about a year or two too late. I can get the same things much cheaper elsewhere.
I will for sure purchase the top coat and try that out!
