If you are into manicures or follow nail trends, than you must be familiar with Chrome nails. It’s such an in thing because of its mirror/reflective finish and almost everyone is either trying silver or a gold finish. I too wanted to get on the bandwagon and see what the hype was all about. I wanted to try Rose Gold and most of the salons I called only had silver and gold chrome. After calling few places, I found a lovely salon called Zuri Beauty Lounge in Jumeirah opposite Jumeirah Beach Hotel offering atleast 30 different colors in Chrome.
I was totally surprised and happy to be offered all those options and ended up choosing the color of my choice. Below are steps followed by the nail technician:
- Used scrub fresh which basically dehydrates your natural nails to remove access oil on the nails
- Applied the gel base coat
- Applied gel color coat
- Applied special top coat for chrome
- Applied chrome powder
- Applied normal top coat
- Finally cleaned up the cuticles (they used peel off polish around the nails so it would be an easy clean up)
- Put nail oil and cream and massaged my arms for a bit. Also, a UV flashlight was used after each step.
All in all, it took around an hour to finish the manicure and boy was I happy with the end result! I have never had anything as beautiful as this before. I was totally in love with and literally every person who saw my nails, complimented me. I loved it so much that I ended up going again after 3 weeks to try out a different chrome color and this time I tried a beautiful green, blue and purple reflective color.
The cost for a basic pedicure and chrome manicure was AED 270 (USD 75). I feel the cost is a bit too high but the results are definitely amazing. Zuri Beauty Lounge also has a variety of colors in Holographic finish.
My nail technician (Jemmya) for manicure and Mary Ann for pedicure were simply amazing. We were chatting about all different things and they offered a lovely green tea and kept asking if I needed anything more. I loved the customer service they provided. I will definitely go back there again and again.
