Chrome Nails - PURCHASE NOW!

 
In the words of Hansel, the Chrome nail is "So hot right now’’ (one for the Zoo Lander fans!) and it seems every nail professional on the planet will do anything to get their talons on the stuff; but do you know what this super shiny powder actually is? and more importantly, do you know how to apply it SAFELY to your clients?
 
The word ‘CHROME’ is actually a little misleading, as it’s not actually a Chromium (more commonly known as Chrome) compound, its an Aluminium compound that your burnishing on to nails; and probably day in and day out for the next few months!
 
You know that can of deodorant that you reach for every morning before we start our day?, and that toothpaste you use every morning and night (or at least I hope you do!) and that bright red lippy we all have for a night out? well all of these products and thousands of others that we purchase all contain various types and amounts of Aluminium.
 
What is Aluminium?

Aluminium is a compound, found in water, food, pharmaceuticals, and in a wide range of products in the cosmetic field, INCLUDING nail art products. To create the desired Chrome nail effect, Aluminium comes in a powder form. I can confirm that the Aluminium compound within the Gel II ® Chrome powder is NOT deemed as ‘dangerous’ - this is information taken from the European Commission's Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) however we can always do things to make our working environment a safer environment for both ourselves and our clients:
 
Here are a few things to consider when about to perform a Gel II® or Entity® OCC manicure using the Gel II® Chrome powder:
 
*Just like before any nail service, make sure your work station is clean, clutter free and well ventilated.
 
*If you are using the Gel II® Chrome powder regulary, protect yourself by wearing a face mask, as the powder is so fine it's likely to be airborne most of the day.
 
*Make gloves your new BFF! There is NEVER any harm in wearing displosable gloves when performing ANY gel polish manicure. 
 
*Pick up the powder from the pot little and often rather than too much too soon, otherwise you will get yourslelf into a pretty little mess!
 
For reviews on this fantastic powder, application video's and troubleshooting, you can find all of this and more on the most respected closed PROFESSIONAL ONLY Facebook group, are you a member yet?  Click here to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thecreativebeautygroup/
