Few things make a nail polish addict more excited than adding a completely new polish to her collection. The lovely Alex gave me this nail polish for my birthday and my first thought was that I didn’t own any other polish like it. Then I used it for the first time and it was true love.

This is such an interesting glitter polish. There are tiny specks of glitter, larger hexagonal bits, and strips of glitter. The combination of all these different shapes and sizes makes it so eye-catching. I knew that I had to write about this nail polish because I’ve used it the last three times I painted my nails. I’ve layered it over a navy polish, then on top of gold, and finally on top of this red. This last combination was for a holiday party that I went to on Saturday and I thought it was very festive indeed. I love this nail polish so much that I’m even going to take it with me when I fly home! I can’t wait to try it with even more different color combinations.

Tell me: How do you feel about glitter polish? Yay? Nay?

    Ohhhh, I love it! It reminds me of snow :)

  • I love glitter nail polish but it’s always a pain to take it off. I have not tried that brand yet.

    • Yeah, that’s true- glitter can be a pain to get off. I have this nail polish remover pot that you dip your fingers into and it makes it a lot easier!

    I haven’t used glitter polish in a while (mostly because I sort of forgot a owned a few bottles of it) but now I’m thinking I need to dig mine out again because your nails look super cute!

    • Thank you Courtney! Normally I go for the cremes or the mattes, but since it was the holidays, I just wanted some sparkle on my nails :)

  • Pretty! I think glitter polish is so fun. I just wish it wasn’t such a hassle to remove. I’ve heard of people using foil to take it off but I’ve never tried it.

    • Thank you Rowena! I’ve done the foil method before and it definitely works. I also have one of those nail polish remover pots that you dip your fingers into and it’s even easier than the foil!

  • It looks so cute and fun! I really like it, the effect is very unique

  • Love these! I’ve been slacking on my nails, but definitely need to get some holiday ones for Christmas! Glitter is always the best ;)

    • Thank you Natalie! It’s been about a week since I did these nails, so I’m due for a new manicure myself :) And I agree- glitter is so much fun (particularly around this time of year)!

    Glitter polish on certain colors and definitely for the holidays. When December hit, I didn’t think twice about it :]

    • Same here- I’ve pretty much only been doing glitter nails all month long!

  • Katherine

    I love the glitter on the red :) Looks great!

    • Thank you! That’s what Alex said too- she bought it because it reminded her of snow :)

  • that is one fancy manni, and a gorgeous polish!

  • Very pretty! I tried one Formula X polish and I wasn’t totally impressed :/ Perhaps I should give them another go

    Happy Holidays!

    • I am super impressed with this glitter polish. I might need to check out their other glitters now. I tried one of regular colored polices and though the color was pretty, but the formula was a bit thicker than I would like.
