I’m the type of person who does her nails mostly out of necessity. In other words, to stop my anxious nail-biting. That’s also why I’m more drawn to clear and glittery shades that are usually applied as top coats, sans the base coat.
When you apply these polishes, it won’t feel like a big deal once it chips. Plus, you can easily take them off and reapply, and it’ll still look nice and shiny on your nails. Choose the right shade that’ll give your nails that glazed and shimmery look for any occasion.
This clear polish has silver micro glitters in it for a subtle and shimmery finish. The glitters are also holographic so they change color when lights hits them. Available on Beauty MNL.
For a more prominent silver glitter effect, go for KleanColor’s Silver Star. Each bottle comes with a semi-clear silver coat with star-shaped glitters. Feel free to put two to three coats if you want a darker color. Available on Amazon.
Make a statement with full-on glitter nails with Chasing Rainbows. It’s a clear polish with intense glitter pay-off regardless if you have a base coat or just bare nails. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
Gossip Girl is a nice translucentent bronze shade with pink and gold reflects. You can also use this as a top coat to your nude or brown nail polish. Available on Amazon.
If you love pink, then Candy Shop is the shade for you. It comes in a light bubblegum shade with multi-colored glitters. Maybe this is also what Barbie’s nails look like. Available on Nordstrom.
This has a clear high-gloss formula with white glitter. Apply this if you want a subdued option for everyday wear. Available at SM Megamall starting Sept. 15.
