Bieber and her nail artist, Zola Ganzorigt broke down the nail concoction on social media, mentioning a thin layer of OPI’s Funny Bunny Nail Lacquer and the Chrome Effects powder in Tin Man Can as the two main products used to achieve the iridescent nail look. But as we know in beauty, nothing is ever one shade (or in this case one technique) fits all. For our melanated beauty lovers, we suggest opting for a light coloured acrylic powder base or layering on your choice of polish to really make your glazed nails pop.
