Holo Chrome – Unicorn Holographic Pigment

Holo Chrome – Unicorn Holographic Pigment


Hi, I’m Suzie. Just when we thought the chrome phase was kind of fading a little, oh, I hope not! They’ve invented UNICORN chrome! (music plays) It’s magical! I’m gonna show you how to do it. Let’s get started. (music plays) I got my unicorn chrome from Max Estrada, that’s Exclusive Nail Couture. It’s even packaged in these special little packages. Sometimes it’s hard to… (giggles). He’s included an applicator as well. Okay. So what I’m wearing on my nails actually is the silver chrome with a light pink underneath. Now this holographic chrome is sold by weight, so it does look like it’s half full. I asked him about that, ’cause I felt “hmm…” But it is sold by weight. So, how I prepped these nails. Because I had the chrome on already, I simply just buffed the surface a little bit, and I left one finger to show you. I’ve just got a medium, you can use a fine, and I’m just gonna buff it slightly. I’m gonna cover this, ’cause I don’t want any old filings in there. So I just buff them, and I’ve done that to all of them. It actually looks kind of cool. It causes this kind of matte finish which is a whole other look. Okay, get me glasses for the finer details. Here’s a little tip I find: one thing I make sure is make sure that you get in close to see this. You make sure that you buff it right to your cuticle. Don’t hurt your cuticle, but get it right to it. When you apply the shiny, or the topcoat, get right in there, because if there’s a little gap, like a little tiny ditch, the powder will settle in there, and it’ll be a kind of grainy and not shiny. It looks horrible. So just try to get it right up to the very edge. Makes a big difference in the outcome. It’s the little finer details. So then I’m gonna take a little bit of alcohol. And I’m just gonna wipe off the dust, so it’s totally dust free. Okay, I did that to the rest of ’em before we got started. Now, if you’re applying this onto a natural nail I do have a video about how to buff the natural nails, um, properly before we do this. If you’re doing it on natural nail, you do want to do a base coat down first. This already has coats on it, and it’s on acrylic so we don’t need to do that. So here’s the trick to it. I’m just gonna do one and show you. Gonna put a little brace here. Just make sure it’s nice and steady when you’re watching. So when I was buffing off, you see I buffed a little. Doesn’t really matter because it’s gonna cover that. (music plays) This is a no-wipe gel topcoat. And I’m gonna get it right to the cuticle, as I said. Now it’s hard, ’cause you, you know you don’t wanna touch the skin. Just get as close as you can. (music plays) I’ll just do a couple here. And I’ll do them all for the reveal, but just for the demo. (music plays) I’m a little sensitive to getting all those little corners, because we photograph it so closely, and it’s blown up. It’s a big picture, so I wanna make sure that it’s right, right? To the naked eye so much, you don’t see it so much. So we just want to nuke this, for 10 to 15 seconds. (music plays) You still wanna leave it a little bit undercured so this stuff will stick. That’s what Max says. So I’m gonna do a dip, watch this. That is SO mirror. (music plays) Ok, now there’s one difference And I’m sure you’re seeing it. Or not seeing it. The lights we use are trying to make it so these nails don’t glare. So it’s easier for you to see. We need a bit of a harder light to see the complete effect. You’ll see that in the final reveal pictures. Most people, when you’re doing your nails, your not using the film lights that we’re using. You can really see the holo coming out. H-oh-lo? H-ah-lo? How do we pronounce that? You can really see all this shine. You can see why it’s called Unicorn. (music plays) You don’t wanna overdo it. Because I can’t see it that well, we’ll get it into some harder light. Okay. And then you want to topcoat it. Nice thin layer, even layer. Of the topcoat. And then you want to cure it for the amount of seconds that it’s recommended. I believe it’s 60. And then, I’m gonna complete the rest of ’em and we’re gonna look at the reveals. (music plays with camera shutter sounds) Look at that! It is a lot like the holo, but it’s very smooth. That is stunning. Now I know why it’s so magical, and why they call it Unicorn. I love it. If you want some Unicorn Chrome for yourself, You’ll find a discount code in the video description below. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did; that was so much fun! Thank you for joining me, and I’ll see you in the next video. (music plays)
