Favourite Nail Polishes - Glitters

Choosing just 16 favourite nail polishes in my Favourite Nail Polishes - Rainbow Edition post was incredibly hard, so I bring you part 2: Glitters! I used to dislike glitters, but have come to love them. Fine ones look pretty over every nail, and chunkier ones look great on an accent.

My first favourite glitter is Illamasqua's Creator; a black base with silver glitter. I bought this on ASOS with a £10 voucher, and I'm glad I did, but wouldn't pay the full £14.50. As much as I love bright nail polishes, I also love shades like this.

Sally Hansen's Oxide is more of a shimmer than glitter, but it didn't fit into my Rainbow Edition post! This is similar to Creator, but it's more of a gunmetal shade, and the glitter is much finer.

Models Own Ibiza Mix is a mix of green, blue, purple, gold and bronze glitter. Very unique, in my opinion. I used to hate chunkier glitters, thinking they looked tacky, but this looks very pretty on my ring fingers.

Models Own Party Pieces (exclusive to ASOS) is a mix of larger and smaller glitter chunks, and the colours include red, blue, green, purple, gold and silver. It's very fun and goes with most colour nail polishes.

Barry M's Amethyst Glitter is densely packed with blue, purple, pink and gold glitter pieces. I love this with darker blues!

Barry M's Pink Silver Glitter is so, so pretty. The glitter is very fine, so I don't mind wearing this on every nail. Glitter can be very bold, so I love that the colour is subtle to even this out.

Essie's Beyond Cozy is another fine glitter that I like wearing on every nail. Normally, the combination of gold and glitter screams tacky, but this colour is very cool toned, and can sometimes look silver, so I think it works. I wore this for Christmas 2012, and will probably wear it for Christmas 2013, too!

I also love my flakies nail polishes (Nubar 2010 and Gosh Rainbow), but haven't included them in the photo. They're so beautiful, with the flakes changing colour in the light. They look incredible over dark polishes!

What are your favourite glitter nail polishes? Are there any I absolutely have to have?


  1. Lovely post honey! I love the look of the models own ones! Great images too! X

  2. Oxide is gorgeous! My favourite glittery polish has to be OPI's Oy Another Polish Joke!, a gorgeous gold shimmery glitter x

  3. Beautiful photo. You have so many lovely nail polishes. I can't pick a fave out of the ones you've posted.

  4. I love BarryM Amethyst, but I lost it so that's pretty gutting.
    I can't help but spend money on glitter polishes, but they're such a nightmare to remove! My favourites would have to be Models Own Pink Fizz and Models Own Juicy Jules.

  7. I love glitter polishes yet removing them can be a chore, nothing beats a bit of sparkle though! I love the look of these, particularly the Illamasqua polish. If you love glitter polishes you should try the Topshop ones, they're gorgeous!

  8. The two Barry M shades are stunning! I used to love sprinkling Stargazer glitter over wet polish, bit messy at time but still gorgeous :)

  9. Lovely polishes! My favorites are China Glaze's I Herd That and Milani's Pink Flare. I Herd That is sooo glittery that you only need one coat - a must have!
