Chrome Girls Nails: All the Colors you need for Summer!

I seriously can't get enough Vegan and 5 Free nail polishes. I love that it's animal friendly, no animal by products are used in the ingredients and free of all those chemicals and toxins. Who knew nail polish could be so complicated right? But really girls, there are a lot of vegan/5 free brands out there right now, even on the cheap, so there's not much of an excuse not to use them!
I know I'm getting all hippie on you, let's just cut away to the newest brand I've tried as of late. Chrome Girl nails is simply awesome. And I'm not just saying that because I got the Spring/Summer 2014 collection for freesies. ;) I  like to go into this with an open mind and honest opinion for my readers and myself. I must say I am overall impressed with the formula (the blue tones and tan being the best application) and quick dry speed! Read on for my ratings on each color.

Summer Storm
5 out 5 stars. A denim navy blue with almost a hazy gray affect, it's perfect for the bay area gloomy summer we are having right now. This is my fave shade out of the collection. Easy to apply, one stroke wonder, dried quickly without a smudge!

Beach Undies
5 out of 5 stars. A bright lime green, reminds me of Nickelodeon slime, hey it's a compliment! I have no color like this in my own personal collection so it's a nice change of pace, fun and silly. The hubby liked it best, lol. Rich intense color, Two coats, dried fast.

Makin' Waves
5 out of 5 stars. A bright brilliant metallic blue. A vacation in a bottle. As mesmerizing as watching the ocean wave, you wont be able to take your eyes off the glimmering silver metallics. This was a one coat wonder- I did add two coats because I was curious as to how blue it would get. Def, better with two coats and dried fast.

Chrome Girl Top Coat over Makin' Waves
I wanted to show you how this shade looked like with a top coat. It appeared more glossy and watery. I like it without personally, but if you like a higher gloss you should go with this. It's a fantastic topcoat and like the nail polishes it..surprise, surprise, dries unbelievably fast!

I Scream
3 out of 5 stars. I LOVE the color and the name. The formula unfortunately got streaky on me as you can see the lines and lumps above. Maybe it needs more wait time in between coats (this was 3 coats later), I was impatient and I had just applied nail polish remover so maybe that screwed it up.
I will have to give this another go, just to be fair.

Salty Kisses
4 out of 5 stars. A bit tricky like the other brights (the blue lacquers were the easiest to work with) it needs 2 or more coats for coverage. The color is a super bright coral and dries quick.

Tan Cheeks
5 out 5 stars. Cheeky name, perfect nude, like literally matches my skin tone. It's a suede tan, and perfect year round not just for the beach. One coat is perfect, dries quick and a runner up to Summer Storm. 

$12 a pop from ChromeGirl.
