We all know that New Years Eve is the perfect opportunity to get glam. Whether it’s on your dress, shoes, or accessories, you’re going to want to get as glitzy as possible to stand out on the big night. Perfect, because glitter nail polish is taking over in a big way this season. With all the top polish brands coming out with their own versions of sparkly options it’s easier than ever to get your hands (and finger tips) on it. Let’s discuss the top glittery polishes that you should invest in before the New Year…
It’s no secret that OPI has been throwing out some killer celebrity collections. From the Kardashian’s posh line of nail polish to the mysterious Twilight inspired shades, they definitely know how to make a product fly off the shelf. Things are no different with their latest line inspired by the Muppet’s, which has twelve shades that are just as animated and entertaining as the puppets they’re modeled after! The greatest feature of the line is that nine of the twelve are full on glitter shades. With names like “Divine Swine” and “Fresh Frog of Bel Air” what’s not to love? With show stopping colors ranging from bright blue and green to the traditional pink and red, there is quite possibly a shade for every glitter lover.
Another great brand that offers glitzy polish is Sally Hansen. They have several lines that offer glitter to their collections. Their most recent line has super chunky glitter in a variety of colors, making it easy to match up with your dress or accessories when you go out to celebrate. If you’re worried that giving yourself a cute manicure before going out will be too time consuming think again, glitter polish usually dries quickly! This comes in handy because they look best when applied with two to three coats. They’re also easy to layer on to a solid color so you can give your simple base coat a quick layer of glitz before going out!
Keep in mind a few rules when applying glitter nail polishes. They’re fun and easy to apply, but they have their downfalls just like everything else. Chunky glitter nail polishes tend to dry quickly but also chip quickly. With how easy it is for touch ups it shouldn’t be too big of a problem, but it’s always a good idea to keep your favorite shade nearby. Also, as previously mentioned, glitter nail polish is a perfect way to spruce up your solid colored nails by applying a quick coat on top, but if you’re using a glitter shade as your primary color, you’ll need to allow yourself time for at least two to three coats. Sometimes with just one coat the color will be dull and won’t show up as thick as you’d like. So giving yourself a few layers is the sure way to get the most glitz out of your polish! Investing in a base and top coat is a must have to keep your nails looking shiny and chip free. (Check out this article for more Winter Must Haves).
Now that you know a couple of the brands offering glitzy nail polishes for this season make sure you stock up. Layer one, two, or all of the shades they have to offer. Glitter and shimmer is always fun and fearless so the possibilities are endless. Match your polish up to your shoes or clutch, or let it stand out as your pop of color with a little black dress! Your glam nails will be hard to miss when you’ll be using your hands to hold your glass of champagne all night! So this New Years Eve make it your resolution to stand out amongst the crowd, which will be easy if you’ve added sparkle from hand to toe!
