Many nail polish brands have come out with new polish that are full glitter. Try OPI’s newest collection Burlesque for great color options. Colors like Bring on the Bling and Extra-Va-Vaganza ($8.50) are just two out of the six-color collection that work beautifully for the holidays with gold and coppery orange. Both these colors are closest to neutral and won’t be too loud or too childishly glittery.

Try a Touch of Glitter

Deborah Lippmann makes the perfect polishes to give you glitter in a grown up way. Featuring larger confetti pieces, you can wear her polishes alone or layer the glitter over a opaque nail color. Try Boom Boom Pow ($20) or Bad Romance ($18) for the holidays!

Glitter removal

Removing glitter after you’ve gotten your wear out of it can be challenging. OPI’s Expert Touch polish remover is tough on glitter without drying your nails like other harsh removers. Soak a cotton ball with remover and hold on your nail for a number of seconds before beginning to rub nail polish over. This will keep any nail damage from removal to a minimum!
