The thing that jumped out at me about these polishes right out of the box is the stunning bottles they come in - and these aren't just for the chrome collection, all their polishes come in these beautiful bottles.

So I didn't end up making an incredibly long post of very repetitive pictures, I decided to do two tape manicures with these colours. I wasn't sure if it would work, because doing nail art that requires tape also usually requires a polish that will be opaque in one, MAYBE two coats, and the chromes I've tried from other brands have been on the thin side. These, however, were no problem at all. I used two coats of Polished, the bronze, because I found it a tiny bit patchy, but to be honest if you were careful you could do one coat of all the others.

If you're not familiar with this technique - it's SUPER easy. All you need to do is paint on your base color, in this case Polished. You can either wait for it to get totally, super duper dry, or emulate my laziness and throw a coat of fast dry topcoat over it and wait about ten minutes. Once it's dry, carefully place a piece of masking tape across the nail where you want the stripe to be, and paint the top half with your other color - in this case, the lovely gold chrome Actress. Take the tape off again right away with tweezers, and throw some topcoat over it before you smudge it. See, easy peasy!
For the silver half of this collection I got way fancy and did THREE stripes of colour.

These cruelty free, beautiful polishes are available from the Furless Cosmetics site, where they also have a wide array of cosmetics brushes for sale. All their brushes are animal fur free (hence the name), and the blending brush they included in this package for me is just awesome. But I have a post all about that coming up soon!
