Oil slick nails are super cute, but the price you pay to get them done at the salon is insane. You can do them yourself at home for a mere fraction of the price. Plus, you get enough chrome powder to do them many, many times over.
I used gel polish and cured with a UV light, but you can use regular polish for this. If you do use a regular polish clear topcoat, make sure it is water-based or else your chrome powder will look glittery and will not have as much of an awesome mirror effect. A great water-based topcoat is Little Ondine.
I've added a link to some awesome chrome powders below. The applicator and brush come with this set. You can also just use a foam eyeshadow brush to apply it and a fluffy paintbrush to remove excess powder.
