Sally Hansen Gem Crush Nail Polish
This glitter nail polish has a formula that supplies full coverage to your nails and there’s even a large array of different colors to choose from. You can use it with or without a base color nail polish to achieve multi-color reflectivity.

With a top coat, the shine will pop out even more, in fact, it’s probably best to use one anyway, because without it, the glitter may begin to chip away. With a top coat, it should last for about a week, and you won’t be able to stop looking at your hands the entire time.

Essie Luxeffects Nail Polish
It wouldn’t be a list without a bit of Essie. Their Luxeffects polishes create breathtaking manicures with multidimensional sparkle.

These are intended to be used over other polishes, but they actually look very nice on their own. It’s easy to distribute the glitter evenly over the nails. This is a top coat, so you won’t have to use something else over it. It’s not going to budge or chip without it.




Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Lacquer
Deborah Lippmann polishes are a lot pricier than some of the other options here, but her glittery coats are to die for. Literally. You might die of starvation after spending all of your money on these.

Each bottle contains its own luxury manicure. The polish is infused with healthy ingredients like green tea extract and biotin. All of them are quick drying, long wearing, and super colorful. You can use one thin layer to add minimal sparkle or use multiple layers that will make your nails really pop.




Zoya Pixie Dust Nail Polish
This is an amazing glitter nail polish for a look that is truly unique. It’s textured and matte, but the top is sparkly, giving your nails the appearance of having been dipped in sugar. This polish won’t chip or peel. Sometimes, textured polishes have a difficult time staying put, but this one should last for up to 6 days.

It’s recommended that you use these without a base or a top coat, however, adding a top coat will give it shine if you want to switch up from the matte look. It might be difficult to get this stuff off, but that’s the case with most textured and glitter polishes and definitely not a deal breaker.




Milani Jewel FX Nail Lacquer
These are chunky glitter polishes that give the effect of jewels on the nails. There’s a nice mixture of large and small glitter chunks. The glitter even has an interesting holographic effect as your move your fingers around. Using this one will give a nice. even coat without the hassle of having to spread the glitter all over the nail just to make it look right. Another perk of this one is that it dries very quickly.




Jordana Glitter Nail Polish
These are great for a really inexpensive glitter polish with lots of colors to choose from, 24 to be exact. The glitter itself is multi shape, color and sized. This glitter packs a punch, even with only one coat. It also doesn’t feel gritty or chunky after it dries. You can use it alone or over your favorite polish.
