Morgan Taylor Chrome Collection
I don’t often write about nail lacquer (non-gel polish), but I received a new product from Morgan Taylor that intrigued me and wanted to share it with you! Morgan Taylor launched a new Chrome Collection that includes a silver chrome base coat and six bright color washes. Application is a simple two-step process in which you apply one coat of the chrome base, and one coat of color wash over top. The end result is a bright, lustrous, metallic finish!
I received a mini kit that included the silver chrome base and three color washes, so I used all three colors in one look! The three colors in the kit are Sunset Yellow, Ultramarine (blue), and Ivy (green). The other colors that are also available are Amber Rush (orange), Cherry (hot red-pink), and Royal (purple). Of course I LOVE the blue!!!
I was surprised at the amazing coverage of the base coat. It’s thick, but applies smoothly and evenly, and dries quickly. The color washes also dry extremely fast. I applied one of the colors onto a nail just to see how it looked alone and it was almost instantly dry. Here’s a quick shot of the chrome base before I applied the colors.
This chrome/metallic look seems to be trending right now. I’ve seen a couple similar products including Caption Lucents and OPI Colorpaints. There may be others as well, but those are the two that come to mind.
The Morgan Taylor Chrome Collection is in stores now, but will only be available for a limited time. The suggested retail price for the lacquer is $8.50 per bottle, and $14.95 for the 4-piece mini pack. For more information visit www.morgantaylorlacquer.com.
