Hollywood “it” girl Gigi Hadid wowed onlookers when she debuted her mirror manicure on the red carpet at the Manus x Machina themed Met Gala earlier this year. Complete with chrome polish, Hadid’s almond-shaped nails also featured Swarovski crystal-encrusted undertips for a surprise effect, taking one of the year’s hottest nail trends to a high-end level. In addition to using chrome polish, nail techs can “mirror” the look for clients by using metallic nail wraps or highly pigmented silver powder with a black gel base coat for a shiny, reflective look. For a twist on the trend, add some colour to provide clients with a varnished yet versatile manicure they can wear for weeks.
