Blogmas - Day 16 My Favorite Glitter Varnish

During the festive season I like to wear more glittery varnish, I love the sparkles, they just add to the Christmassy feel!
(oh who am I kidding, I love glitter ALL year round)

All of these are £5.00 or under from drugstores or supermarkets.

Here are some of my current favorite glitter varnishes.

L'oreal Colour Riche - Scarlet Tinsel
£4.99 from Superdrug

Barry M - Aqua Glitter
£2.99 from Superdrug.

Asda George 3D Glitters - Ice Queen
£2.00 from Adsa

Sinful Colours Glitter - Queen of Beauty
£1.99 from Boots

I had tried to swatch both Models Own glitter varnishes, but in all honesty, considering they're the most expensive of the lot, they're probably the worst with opacity. I had to try about 4 layers of varnish and still you could see nails, plus they take FAR too long to dry.
Models Own - Disco Mix
£5.00 from Boots
By the time these had dried it had been almost an hour, hence different light.

It took forever to remove some of these though, I decided the ol foil fingers trick would suffice for removing the stubborn varnishes.

I am in dire need of a red glitter though, for Christmas obviously, but I don't know which is the best red glitter, ideas??

  1. I took some polish and a glitter topcoat off this weekend and took about 30 minutes to do it! I haven't't heard of this foil fingers trick before! Thanks :)

    Red varnish underneath and a topcoat of barry m red glitter polish. It has a 'Dorothy shoes' affect!

  3. I think the best red is the Barry M red glitter! Has to be done!
