The Best Glitter Nail Ideas For Your Winter 2023 Manicures

Let's be real. Everyone enjoys seeing a little glitter on their nails (even if it is buried deep, deep down). And there's no better time than winter to show off your sparkly side

With so many holiday celebrations in December (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the New Year, to name a few), it seems wrong not to add a little sparkle

to your manicure.And there are so many options. "Think about different types of glitter polish. There are overlays with glitter suspended in a shear base that you can use to paint over an existing color. 

There are textures that produce a 3D effect. Then there are full coverage glitters that can be worn alone," Zoya creative director Rebecca Isa told Byrdie.

"Each of these types of glitter polish can be used to create beautiful effects in the nail," she said. And she is correct. There are so many different glitter manicures

 out there that you're bound to find one that you like, whether you like to go all out with the sparkle or keep it to a minimum.

So, with that in mind, we've compiled a list of some of our favorite glitter manicures for winter 2023.
