Chrome Girl Swatches and Review

If you aren’t a huge fan of glitter, then today’s post is just for you!

Chrome Girl is a new brand for me and I have several cremes within this post to show you.

Take a look!

Shmexy

Shmexy

Shmexy is a jade creme shade.  Very pretty and my favorite in the set!  I used 2 coats for this photo.  I would recommend using a 2 coats of basecoat for this one.  I got a little bit of staining from it.

2gether Forevs

2Gether Forevs

2gether Forevs is a vibrant medium lilac creme.  I used 2 coats for this photo.  This one borders on being a crelly, but not quite.

Bed Head Blue

Bed Head Blue

Bed Head Blue is a true blue creme.  I would also recommend 2 coats of basecoat for this one.  The staining wasn’t too bad, but it was still there a little.

Birthday Suit

Birthday Suit

Birthday Suit is an incredibly sheer pale pink.  I used 4 coats for full opacity.

Empowered Flower

Empowered Flower

Empowered Flower is one of 2 metallics I have to show you!  This is a gold metallic and was very close to full opacity at just 1 coat, but I used 2 for this photo.  Very few brush strokes are visible.

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker is a classic red/orange creme.  Another formula that borders on being a crelly.  I used 3 coats for this photo.

Party Star

Party Star over Shmexy

Party Star is a micro glitter holographic top coat.  Create a scattered holo effect to any polish!  I used 1 coat of Party Star over Shmexy.

Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk is a bubblegum pink creme.  I used 3 coats for this photo.  Coats 1 and 2 came across a little streaky, but coat 3 evened it out.

Poetic Potion

Poetic Potion

Poetic Potion is another favorite!  This is a bronze metallic shimmer.  Almost a 1 coater, but I used 2 coats this photo.

Worth The Wait

Worth The Wait is a vampy deep burgundy jelly!  I LOVE this shade!  I used 3 coats for this photo.

Top Coat

Top Coat

With all the swatches seen here I used Chrome Girl Top Coat to finish the mani’s off.  While most of them had a gorgeous natural gloss finish, this helped amp it up a bit more!  Dry time was really good, I would say less than 5 minutes total.  It isn’t a super thick top coat but it isn’t watery either.  Doesn’t have a harsh smell like Seche Vite does.

Matte Top Coat

Matte Top Coat

Chrome Girl also has a matte top coat which I loved!  It doesn’t matte super fast, so you have time to even it all out, but it has very few brush strokes and gives a nice, even, matte finish!

Base Coat

Base Coat

Like the top coat, I used Chrome Girl Base Coat with all of these photos too.  There isn’t really a good way to show off a swatch of a base coat though, so here are my thoughts.  It dried fairly quick and left a smooth, clear surface to work with.

While some of these colors aren’t super unique, the quality was pretty good!  The lighter shades like Pillow Talk and Birthday Suit applied streaky at first, but definitely even out.

My Top Picks:  Shmexy, Party Star, Worth The Wait, Matte Top Coat and Poetic Potion

Price: Between $10 and $12.50 for each 14 ml bottle

Where to Buy:  The Llarowe Website
