WHITE CHROME NAILS – Iridescent Opal Nail Art
These nails were totally inspired by the infamous iridescent white stick on nails that were always popping up on nail groups on Facebook! They continue to forever be the “Holy Grail” of nail art!

Using pastel shades, begin by applying a pale blue to the centre in a thick line using a striping brush (UK / US), do not cure.
