I loved these nails since I saw them on the runway. Lately I've seen more brands realized their version of mirror nail varnish and of course I had to try them! There are at least 4 ways to obtain the mirror nails effect. How much are you willing to pay to look like your nails were dipped in gold? Good news! The million dollar look you're after is cheaper than you may think!

In questo periodo vediamo comparire sugli scaffali delle profumerie dei nuovi smalti che ci promettono di ottenere unghie ad effetto specchio come quelle fotografate durante la fashion week. Saranno all'altezza delle aspettative? Ci sono almeno 4 modi per ottenere unghie cromate.  Quanto dovrete spendere per ottenere unghie riflettenti e lucide come se fossero state immerse nell'oro? Fortunatamente meno di quanto pensate!

It should last 2 weeks.

Minx manicure. L'originale manicure fotografata durante la fashion week. Solo in un salone per le unghie.

Mirror effect nail polish.
Many brands produced their version of mirror nail polish (Maybelinne mirror magic - Stargazer - China Glaze Millennium - Zoya Trixie
Layla mirror magic to name a few).
To obtain a better effect polish your nails before applying the varnish and finish it with a top coat because these tend to chip easily.
I tried Pupa mirror nail polish and I was disappointed with the result. For me it doesn't look like a mirror at all.  If you're looking for a real mirror effect, I mean a reflective effect skip these.

Smalti mirror effect
Come vi ho accennato prima ci sono diversi smalti che promettono di poter ottenere un effetto specchiato (Pupa mirror effect - Zoya Trixie - Layla mirror magic per nominarne alcuni). Prima di applicarli l'unghia va lucidata e vanno poi protetti con un top coat perchè tendono a scheggiarsi facilmente. Se state cercando l'effetto riflettente però questi smalti non fanno al caso vostro.

For once the the best option is also the cheapest one! If you want real reflective nails go for fake nails! They will be thicker than real nails but you'll get a real mirror. Just glue them on and you're ready to go! Here's a quick easy way to get the high fashion look on a budget!
 P.S. (Sally Hansen's chrome nails are on ebay starting from $0.99)

In cima alla mia lista dei 4 modi per ottenere unghie ad effetto specchio troviamo:
Le unghie finte! Anche se più spesse delle unghie vere sono le uniche ad assicurarvi l'effetto cromato e riflettente. Per una volta il risultato migliore è assicurato dall'opzione più economica. Non male!
