Best Glitter Accent Nail Polishes

Glitter Accent Nail Polish Sally Hansen Strobe Light Butter London Tart With A Heart Essie A Cut Above OPI True Stefani Fashion Revlon Sequins Essence On Air!
I love a good glitter polish but I usually only use them on my accent nail because let’s face it… glitter polish is a pain in the butt to remove. Accent nails are a really easy way to make an ordinary mani a little more special with no nail art skill required!

  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Colour in Strobe Light $6.95: This is actually a really pretty and unique pink and gold glitter with different sized glitter. It is also one of the cheapest on the list so that is a win! It isn’t as opaque as some of the others, but is still very buildable.
  • Butter London 3-Free Nail Lacquer in Tart With A Heart ($20.40 with free shipping to Australia):  I think this may by my ultimate favourite on this list. Out of all of these glitters, I have used this one the most by far because it is just so different. It is a bright pink and gold holo glitter that is really eye catching. Pictures never do this one justice and it is also quite opaque in 2-3 coats, which is fantastic for a glitter polish. It is also unfortunately the most expensive on the list but sometimes you have to treat yo’ self.
  • Essie Nail Polish in A Cut Above $16.95: This is an old Essie favourite that I love to wear with all my pink, mauve and greige polishes and, let’s face it, those are the shades I wear 90% of the time. It isn’t particularly dense but it can be built up. I usually just apply one light coat of this glitter which looks fantastic.
  • O.P.I. Nail Laquer in True Stefani Fashion $16.95 – Any holosexuals out there? This is an absolutely perfect holo glitter top coat which has two different sized glitter. On closer inspection only the larger glitter flecks are holo and the smaller are just silver glitter but in any case, it is beautiful. It is quite easily buildable too. I thought this was a limited edition polish but you can still order it online.
  • Revlon Nail Polish in Sequins: This reminds me a lot of the Essie A Cut Above, just in gold. It definitely isn’t as buildable though, as you can see from the nail swatches. This one looks fantastic with all my vampy red and black polishes! I can't find it online but I always see it in Chemists so just have a hunt around.
  • Essence The Gel Polish in On Air! $3.25: I was totally blown away by how amazing this one was for the price. It easily lives up to the quality of these other much higher end polishes for a fraction of the price. It is also incredibly opaque, even just with one coat. In two coats, it is a perfectly solid gold glitter. I also really love the slightly muted gold tone of it. I hope it is still available.
As for the longevity of these polishes, they are all very good but the more concentrated glitter polishes (like Butter London Tart With A Heart or Essence The Gel Polish in On Air!) always tend to chip quite quickly, no matter how nice the formula is. The curse of glitter polishes! Or maybe just nail polish in general. That said, I routinely get a couple of days out of all of these glitter polishes and I can usually extended it by re-applying a top coat to seal the tips everyday.
