It’s that time of year again and on the ELLE Beauty Desk we are getting to grips with our inner glitterati. Every Christmas calls for iridescent eyes and shimmering lips but this year brands are stepping it up a notch – we’re talking full blown disco shades on our nails. You only have to look around to spot someone’s newly painted tips sparkling in the light (I spy three right now).
From subtly glistening to full-impact, vibrant shades we’ve rounded up the best glitter nail polishes on the market.

This kit reaches new heights on the glitter Richter scale. It may look fiddly but it’s actually a doddle to use.
1- Pour some of the glitter in to the application tray.
2- Apply one coat of Black Taxi nail (avoid getting any on your skin as the glitter will stick).
3- Press your lacquered nail in to the glitter.
4- Dust off any leftover glitter from around your finger nail with the dusting brush.
5- Repeat on all of your nails and finish with top coat.
Voila! Nails worth bragging about.
