After Gigi Hadid sent the beauty world into a frenzy after sporting a chrome $2000 manicure at the Met Gala last year, beauty bloggers around the globe were practically falling over themselves trying to recreate the look at home.

A few months later, the trend has evolved into something (dare I say) even cooler than chrome and the latest trend kind of reminds me of those shiny stickers we all used to collect when we were kids. But of course, in the best possible kind of way.

Proving that the trend is not one to go past, some of the biggest beauty influencers on Instagram have gotten behind the look, sporting their own versions of the space-age chic manicure.

Lucky for us, YouTuber Kandee Johnson has very kindly put together a full tutorial on how to achieve this amazing look at home and while it’s not exactly easy, if you have a few manicure skills you should be able to pull a fairly decent DIY job. Yeah, we are obsessed.
