May 28, 2021

Ever wanted to add glitters to your nails but couldn’t because you felt it was for grade school nights? Oh, well, times have changed, and glitters are back on the trend table! How exciting!

Glitter nails have no barriers now that we have less to deal with work etiquette as we spend more time working from home. Also, there are glitters for everyone, dramatic and low-key alike; that’s why we’re sharing some of the glitter nail trends for 2021 to get you started.

Top 10 Glitter Nail Trends

MC-36 - Mageta Pink Orange by DND

MC-36 - Mageta Pink Orange by DND

 

Our new arrivals are here, and we’re kicking this list off with the DND’s brand new nail glitter line! These are mood color-changing shades, and that’s very literal! They change depending on the temperature, so you’ll never want variety.

The new formula laden in this nail glitter eliminates the need for base coat and bond because only top coat and gel color are needed.

One of the best features of this product is the fact it lasts for over 21 days! And did we mention it’s both LED and UV cured too? Grab one here!

Cosmo Magical Pixie Dust by Zoya

Cosmo is a go-to for the bold! The exciting thing here is that it can stand alone without needing to accentuate another nail polish.

With a bit of intensity on the holographic formulae, this silvery micro glitter base gives off a transparently dramatic shine. Of course, the drama transcends into its feel, which gives you a sandy texture when it’s a bit dried. So, if you’re more relaxed with a smooth texture, you may want to add a clear top coat to smoothen the surface.

Salt Water Sassy by KBShimmer

Salt Water Sassy by KBShimmer

 

Salt Water Sassy is a pastel crelly, with coral with hex glitters of varying colors and sizes, such as yellow, lavender, and white. Like saltwater, its base color is blue; the Robin eggs’.

Its characteristics give it a dreamy look that makes it for the spring, and because it’s a crelly formula, two to three coats will make for good coverage.

Upside Round by KBShimmer

There’s so much to be said about Upside Round! The fun thing is you don’t need to put your nose up in its business to find out all the beauty that lies within.

It is suitable for the dramatic and playful but more ideal for the playful. Upside Round is quite heavy on its glitter, which comprises orange, pink, green, and blue. It also has neon purple, yellow, and an exciting confetti glitter of matte neon; in summary, polka dots!

Here comes the playful part: you’ll need to manipulate the brush a little and use a heavy coat because the finish will be a rather bumpy ride. That is because the glitter sticks somewhat to each other coupled with being on the thick side. Upside Round is great for the spring and summer seasons.

Carnivalesque by Adesse New York

Carnivalesque by Adesse New York

 

We would suggest that Carnivalesque is a glitter polish for everyone: dramatic, low-key, playful, serious, etc. It has a part that appeals to every style. It is a clear base polish with different glitter hexes, diamonds, and squares, differing in sizes and colors, with a touch of micro glitter.

It has both holographic and reflective pieces of glitter that add to its sparkle and, like its name, gives off a carnival. You may wear it alone or like a coat on another nail polish, whichever way you prefer.

A Little Lovely by Smith & Cult

A Little Lovely by Smith & Cult

 

A Little Lovely is an eight-free polish, which means it doesn’t contain unnecessary elements that may hurt your nails. And it can be worn alone or as a coat to accentuate other nail color polish.

Wearing it alone makes for more class, as it feels like your nails are dipped in rose gold. Think of it as a magical and dreamy combination of beauty! Its reflective gold and pink hexes make this possible.

Little Lovely needs zero sponging and no several coating to give you all the glitters you need, and when it dries, you’re sure of an even finish. There’s little effort with this one.

Sashay My Way by Orly

Sashay My Way by Orly

 

As a clear base with a mix of holographic gold bar glitter and holographic hexes, Sashay My Way screams ‘variety’. The bar glitters are a bit on the light side, making room for accentuating the hexes.

Unlike most bar glitters that muddle up with your nail designs, this one gives you the rich design of an embroidered beading.

Sashay My Way, being a clear base of unique design mix, can be used as a coat for black or dark colors.

Lots of Dots by Morgan Taylor

Lots of Dots by Morgan Taylor

 

Lots Of Dots is a lacquer of differing shapes of micro glitter hexes that makes for playful glitter.

It’s a clear base and can be worn alone or as a coat for other colors of nail polish, make sure you use a sponge, as it gives a feel of confetti and is not reflective.

Pop the Bubbles by L’Oreal Paris

Pop the Bubbles by L’Oreal Paris

 

From L’Oréal Paris’ Dust Collection, Pop the Bubbles is a mix of silvery glitters and a heavy load of micro glitters. As expected with most micro glitters, this one has a sandy feeling to its textured finish so that it may call for a top coat.

If you’re looking for full coverage, then one coat would be just as great. However, if you’re going for a shimmery finish, then you might want to top up.

Omg by Color Club

Omg by Color Club

 

Omg is a nail lacquer made up of dramatic contents; neon pink matte confetti glitter, white hearts, white ghosts, brown smiling poop emoji glitter, yellow smiley faces, and red lips. It is a piece for the “omg” expression!

We’re certain this piece from Color Club’s Nailmoji Collection isn’t for the faint of heart! It is unique and a clear-based formula worn alone or on top of another lacquer, depending on your style and preference.

Of course, with the different glitter pieces it comes with, you’ll need to go fishing to pick out the one(s) that suit you.

Conclusion

It is exciting to have something more classy and definitive for the nails, isn’t it? You want something asides from the clear-based lacquer or the colors and designs without shine, don’t you?
