Green chrome nails are the latest trend in nail art, and it’s easy to see why. Featuring an eye-catching shimmery finish and a range of shades, they offer a unique look that stands out from other nail styles.
Inspired by mirror chrome finishes, these glossy nails give off a futuristic vibe and can be used to create endless variations. In this blog post, we’ll explore the history of green chrome nails, learn how to apply them, get inspired by different looks, and find out how to take care of your manicure after application.
What Are Green Chrome Nails?
Chrome nails are a type of manicure that involves applying a special type of nail polish that has a metallic finish to the nails. The polish is typically applied over a colored base coat, and it is designed to give the nails a shiny, reflective appearance that resembles chrome.
Some chrome nail polishes are also holographic, meaning they have a rainbow-like iridescent effect when they catch the light. Chrome nails are often worn for special occasions or as a fashion statement, and they can be achieved using either a powder or a liquid nail polish.
While they are obtainable in pretty much every color, we are here to focus on one that would make the rest green of envy.
Where Does the Mettalic Green Trend Come From?
Oddly enough (I know I’m weird…), I like to dig in and find the origin of nail trends. In this case, I did find a “small” spike that may result in the gorgeous Dua Lipa’s appearance back in February of 2022 wearing green chrome nails.
Now… considering that for the time of writing these lines this beauty is followed by almost 88 MILLION people – that will definitely ignite a trend!
BTW, in case you are not one of these 88 Million… you should. Here is the link!
How To Get Green Chrome Nails?
Getting green chrome nails is easier than you might think. There are a few different ways to achieve the look, depending on what type of product you have access to.
If you’re looking for an easy way to do it at home, you can use a special nail polish that has a metallic finish. Make sure to apply a colored base coat first, then use the metallic polish for your green chrome nails. There are also special nail powders available that you can use to create a chrome effect on your nails.
If you don’t have access to either of these products, you can try using eyeshadow or lipgloss with a sponge applicator. Just make sure to use a color close to your desired shade of green.
And of course, there are still two ways that are FAR easier than the above…
- Go to the nail salon near you!

Tips for Green Chrome Nail Designs
If there is anything we can learn by watching the above dozens of chrome nail designs is that ANYTHING goes… well, almost anything. Here are some tips to consider:
• Use a sparkly top coat for extra shine
• Choose colors that complement each other (think metallics)
• Consider using green chrome nail art stickers for easy designs
• Go more subtle with the shimmer if you want something low-key
• Use your imagination and let your creativity shine!
Care & Maintenance of Green Chrome Nails
Caring for green chrome nails is the same as caring for any other type of manicure. You want to make sure you keep them clean and dry and use cuticle oil to nourish the nail beds. Also, try to limit the use of acetone-based products (or any chemicals), since they can break down the polish and cause it to chip and peel.
And there you have it! Now all that’s left is to enjoy your beautiful green chrome nails!
Happy manicuring! 🙂
