Grab some glitter & copy these nail designs

When it comes to attention-grabbing nails, glitter is a no-brainer. Think about it. Those tiny flecks catch the light and transform base colors within mere seconds. Thankfully, nail art supplies come in hundreds of shapes, sizes and inexpensive shimmers, so creating sparkly, shiny looks doesn't have to mean breaking the bank.
From holographic powders to glitter and gems, these looks are destined to draw admiring glances. Instead of relying on jewelry or holiday apparel this season, give one of these glam looks a go. Just be sure to set that hard work with a good gel top coat and cure thoroughly with an LED or UV lamp to keep those nails looking fabulous.
