Fashion and beauty trends are a strange thing—what’s all the rage one year might seem completely ridiculous the next. The teased, larger-than-life hairstyles of the ‘80s gave way to stick-straight styles in the ‘90s and early 2000s, and don’t even get us started on hair crimping.
Even eyebrows have gone through cycles with different trends—some of the girls who went wild with the tweezers during their high school years are all about bold and bushy brows these days. Jumping in on beauty trends can be risky, especially if they're permanent.
So what’s the next big trend in beauty? Some folks are saying it’ll be a new way to customize your smile with glittery tooth polish. That’s right—people are turning their pearly whites into a colorful canvas. If you’re as confused as we are about this, keep reading to get all the details on this truly bizarre trend.
Meet Chrōm, the brand behind this head-scratching idea.Similar to nail polish, you paint it on your teeth, and it’s meant to last for up to 24 hours.
How much will it cost?You can get a bottle of Chrōm on their website for $18-22.
Take your pick.Chrōm is available in several different colors, ranging from baby pink to glittery gold.
But why?Founder David Silverstein told Fox News that colorful teeth are already a big hit at music festivals and that it might become an everyday fashion statement: “Perhaps you go to work with one tooth [that] matches your nail polish or your hair color."
What’s it made out of?Silverstein says that it’s made from a grain alcohol base and that the formula is “100 percent safe."
Your dentist may not approve.The Daily Mail interviewed dentist Ramin Tabib, and he shared his skepticism: “I have no idea what’s in this product and the safety long term. Seems like the company does not want to give the ingredients out and they are calling it proprietary. Unfortunately, that is not good enough for me to give an OK to this product, not knowing what the long-term ramifications are. It may be completely safe and it may not."
Use it at your own risk.The jury’s still out on this one, but in the meantime, you can check out the brand’s photos on Instagram.
