Trend Report: Glitter Nails

Glitter nailsThis trend isn’t exactly new, but it is still as popular as ever. With a whole new range of affordable glittery nail polishes on the market, I decided to revisit the trend.  For a great tutorial on the glitter gradients, try this one from The Beauty Department. Please note that putting loose glitter on wet nail polish doesn’t look the same! Trust me, I tried it and it didn’t look great. Here is a selection of my favourite glitter nail polishes on a budget.
