The very second I brought my creamy, pastel nail polishes back into the mix for spring, I had a nostalgic pining for the sparkly paints that dominated my holiday manicures. You see, we had a good thing going, glitter nails and me, because although I'm a minimalist at heart, I also love a good sparkle.
So, rather than wait until the holidays to get back on my glitter grind, I combed through the prettiest damn manicures I could find—paired with seven top-notch polishes—to prove glitter nails are anything but seasonal or tacky.
