The regular Chromes look great on the smooth, smooth nail wheel surface. The Crystal Chromes, not so much. I don't recall what the deal was with the Crystal Chromes—did they have more color to them when they were new?

  1. These looks so pretty! I do like the chrome finish :-)

  2. Are they good for stamping? I like them, pink chromes in particular.

    1. A. notcopyacat, I haven't tried the Crystal Chromes for stamping, but the Chrome Nail Makeup do work nicely as long as you work fast (they dry pretty quickly).

  3. These look all so very lovely :) I do not own a chrome nail polish but I am very tempted now :D

    1. shortylegsbeauty, I think a well-rounded stash needs at least one chrome finish. :)

  4. My favourites are the metallic blue :)

    1. Beautyshades, the blues are definitely standouts, though of course my favorite is #15, the most purple one. :)

  5. I remember the Revlon Top Speed Chromes- I was in Vancouver visiting family and vividly remembering my cousing having most of them and my mom complaining to my aunt that I have so many polishes (around 20 at the time). Wondering if she still has them

    1. amusedPolish, so funny that 20 polishes seems like a lot to "normal" folks.

  6. Oh my! I love them all! The wheel looks so beautiful :D

  7. A while ago I found Opal Chrome and the formula was horrendous :(
