A New Take on Glitter: Mani Monday

As much as we love nail art, we’re better at admiring designs than coming up with them ourselves. That’s why we’ve enlisted Anna Norman, the smarty pants behind Glitter, She Wrote, to be a regular contributor. Every Monday, she’ll be sharing her latest lacquer inspiration—you won’t be satisfied with plain ol’ polish again.

As my calendar starts to fill up with holiday parties, I’ve been looking for different ways to add sparkle and shine to my nails. I love a good glitter polish, but I’ve been in the mood to try something new. My latest obsession? Loose glitter.

Applying loose glitter to your nails is more time intensive and a bit messier than using regular glitter polish, so it’s not the most practical manicure for every day of the week—but the results are twice as sparkly, and much for festive for the season. I’m using a kit from Nails Inc., but you can create a DIY version just as easily. Here’s how to get the look:

February seems to have flown right by and you know what that means—time for the color of the month! Last month we revamped our nails with a super-charged purple that kept us chugging through the cold weeks of February. This time around though, I’m all about adding a little (or rather, a lot of) sparkle.

It’s time to ring in the new year! While I don’t know what you have planned for NYE, I do know that this night usually means big things: an awesome outfit, sultry makeup, dancing shoes, and a great mani! Since I’m still not sure what polish I will be rocking tomorrow, I decided to round up some inspiration. From the classic combo of black and gold to matte ombre sparkles to colorful confetti glitter, these are a few of my favorite festive ideas. 

What will you be wearing on your nails for NYE? Tell me in comments!
