Maybe things are different where you are.
Anyone I have ever met considers chrome as white markings. Lots of chrome means socks and a blaze, etc. Nothing to do with how shiny or sparkly the horse is.
Chestnut is a color that shines well. A healthy chestnut colored horse almost always sparkles.
(Versus a grey horse who can groom until you are exhausted and they just never seem to shine.)
