Whether shimmery, glittery, or gemmed, glitter nails can add some sparkle. The December issue of Essence says glitter isn't just for kids and suggests some colors for its readers.
For a darker shimmer, it suggets Dior Vernis in Black Sequins. For more festive colors, try Dashing Diva in Bryant Park and Jazz Nights.
Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer in Sprinkle of Twinkle provides iridescent glitter, and Wet n Wild Festive Flirt Nail Enamel in Gilded produces a golden glitter.
Essence says readers should ask their nail techs about the Calgel nail system for longer-lasting nails.
