The chrome is the stand out here, contrasting with the other solids (colors which don’t truly beg to be stared at.  Blue and green aren’t at all humdrum, to be sure, with their rich and unconventional flare…but chrome seems to illicit a double-take more often.)

Chromes are not always so easy, I’ve found…failing to nail the “mirrored” look most of the time.  Glossy topcoats help, but it’s got to be a good formula…and don’t be disappointed if you can’t quite recite “Mirror, Mirror, on the wall…”

Imabeautygeek shares some swatches and insights of her own, so definitely check it out!  I haven’t tried this myself but by the looks of it, it falls a little shy of the mark…  

Then again, I think I’m inevitably disappointed with chromes because they aren’t as reflective as my mind *thinks* they should be.  I suppose, in this case, if I want to channel my inner Robocop, I better stick to – no pun intended – falsies, or stickers!
