Black Chrome Lightning Nail Art

Long Beach-based nail tech Julie Ventura created this simple but edgy design. “It’s like if chrome and marble had a baby, or rainbow lightning — or maybe just a softer version of tiger stripes,” she says.

1. Polish with a black gel-polish and cure.

2. Apply a matte gel top coat and cure, or simply buff your black layer.

3. Paint thin, organic, branch-like lines using a thin striping brush and a no-wipe gel top coat. Cure.

4. Rub on a chameleon chrome pigment and wipe away the excess. Seal only the lines with top coat and cure.
