Megan Fox Loves This Nail Color So Much She Got Engaged Wearing It

When Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly got engaged in January, no one could stop talking about her ring. As a beauty editor, however, my eyes were laser focused on something else—her manicure. Fox got engaged with a gunmetal chrome French manicure, and I immediately added it to my saved Instagram posts. 

Chrome nail polish has been having a bit of a resurgence lately, with everyone from Fox to Olivia Rodrigo wearing the metallic polish. While your mind may immediately go to silver polish when you think of chrome, there are actually plenty of different chrome nail polish shades to choose from. Chrome nail polish is simply metallic with a high amount of reflectivity, and it can come in every shade under the sun. Below, I rounded up the absolute best shades of chrome nail polish to test.
