Festive glitters for the holiday season

There is nothing better than a festive glitter on your nails for the party season. Even if it's on all your nails or just the ring finger, it can really add something new to a plain polish. Here are my top five favourites for December. 

1. Barry M Sequin Effects in White - £3.99: This polish has a mixture of red, yellow, green and blue sequins running through a white base. It would look great during the party season if you want something more colourful than the regular monochrome glitters. The sequin inspired flakes do feel quite rough on the nails, but if you're into unique nail effects, you may like this one! 

2. Model's Own in Mixed Up - £5: Mixed Up is full of tiny speckles, mostly in black and then a few in sparkly blues, greens, reds and yellows. You can build the speckles up or coat it over a black polish (which is much easier to remove). Mixed Up is perfect if you want something simple with a festive twist. 

3. Model's Own in Freak Out! - £5: Freak Out is from the Model's Own Mirrorball collection. The polish is filled with glitter of different shapes and sizes in blues and purples. It's really pretty and unusual and would look lovely coated over off-white polishes. 

4. Loreal Paris in Confetti - £4.99: Confetti is a classic monochrome top coat, full of different sized black and white dots. The formula spreads the speckles evenly over the nail with no effort, and looks really nice over all different polishes. I particularly like this polish paired with pastels, you can see some colour combinations here.  

5. NYC Smoky Top Coat in Rock Muse - £1.99: Rock Muse is a black based polish with different sized silver glitter. The black base allows you to wear the polish without having to apply another polish before it, this makes the application process a lot quicker. The silver glitter would make the perfect polish for a New Years party. 

What are your favourite seasonal glitters?
