Five of the Best: Glitter Polishes

29 May 2012

I am a massive fan of glitter nails. I know they're a pain to get off and they damage your nails, but I don't really care, they're just so fun! I thought I'd do a quick rundown of my current five favourite glitter polishes:
Each polish goes left to right one coat, two coats, three coats!
Out of the five, this is the one I usually wear the least as its so thick and I prefer to use my glitters as a top coat. But this is really nice on my toes when I'm feeling particularly girly (rarely happens).
I love this polish - I hate it layered up, but one coat really makes plain lilac nails looks so gorgeous at night time. This is one from last Christmas' muppets collection but its still available online, and I'd definitely recommend a purchase if you can track it down!
Sooo happy because I've just realised that ASOS have the rest of this collection still online, and in the sale too! Very tempted by did it on 'em. So I already posted a review of this polish (here) but I just really wanted to include it because I think one coat of this is gorgeous. The third nail is how this applied first time I used it, hence why I was a bit put off. I don't actually own loads of OPI polishes, I just love their glitters.
Technic Carnival - £2.05
Think I paid about a fiver for this a couple of months ago so I'm gutted I've found it cheaper! But I'd have to say this is my favourite glitter polish. I love how bright the colours are, I'm just a bit of a magpie really.
Pretty sure everyone knows all about this polish as its been (deservedly) hyped over the last few weeks, but this is my favourite glitter when built up to me a 'statement' nail with a few coats. This does take quite a while to dry but I'll forgive it for being so beautiful.

I thought I'd include a couple of ways that I like to wear these polishes... Wear Something Spar-Kylie can't really be layered and I've already done a Nicki Minaj NOTD, but here are the other three as a top coat:
L-R Divine Swine is layered over two coats of Lilac Dream, Carnival is layered over two coats of Utopia, and Ibiza Mix is layered over two coats of Hedonist (yes I love Models Own polishes)!

  5. I love glitter nail polishes! And I love the technic one too, I actually removed it from my nails this morning. I agree, they are such a pain to remove, especially Barry M ones!

    I like how you have shown one, two and three coats to compare. The OPI one is quite interesting with the glitter fibres, I like it! :) xx
