Choose an almond shape to showcase your chrome red nails for a stylish take on the trend. Pro tip: Apply the chrome powder before the color if you'd like a more subdued chrome finish.

Subtle Chrome

Nail artist Maki layered a vivid red lacquer with garnet chrome powder for this spectacular combination. See how she accomplished it on the Byrdie Instagram page.

To truly bring the flames, go for a golden glaze iridescent manicure for an ultra-metallic finish. Nail artist Tom Bachik topped PLA's Gel Polish in Chai and Chai Again ($13) with a "golden glaze iridescent shimmer" for Selena Gomez's "glazed fire" manicure.
