Glitter is sparkly, but paired with a pale pink base it can appear neutral. Rachel Joseph, a nail artist from Nailing Hollywood, created this look by using Dazzle Dry Nail Lacquer in Peacefully Me ($22) as the base color and Diamond Nail Lacquer (also $22) for the glitter. Hanna says that Dazzle Dry is an innovative formula of nail polish which applies and removes just like regular polish, but lasts more like gel. It also dries within five minutes after application.

The chunky glitter in this bubblegum pink ombre nail design brings back memories of the 1990s. The polishes that were used to create this nail design have all been discontinued. You’ll need to show your manicurist the picture as inspiration.

The glitter on this neon rainbow Skittle Glitter look is the same one used in the pink manicure. To achieve a similar effect, choose the colors you want and dab them with a sponge for an ombre look. Finish each nail with a glitter polish that looks like confetti, and extend it half way down the nail. Finish with topcoat.

While we love the ultra-fine glitters, chunky ombre shimmer nail looks can be just as fun. The Ella + Mila Starbright Polish is $7 and can be used to achieve the same look. (P.S. LaTara Haye, a nail artist from Hollywood who specializes in glitter polish, says that if you cannot find the perfect glitter polish for you, you should get creative. She says that some artists like to make custom glitters by using glitters purchased at places such as Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Custom glitters can also save you money on nail products. This is an excellent option for DIY!”
