It's no secret that crafters everywhere are using sparkly nail polish for their crafty ideas. Nail polish is just enamel paint that dries incredibly fast. It keeps all sparkles and glitter in place which is why it's perfect for so many projects.
Crafters love using nail polish on everything from jewelry designs to home décor DIY projects.
If you want to try water marbling, then nail polish is a great choice. Some nail polish brands really pack in the glitter! There are many different kinds to choose from depending on how you want your final product to look like. And if you can't find a perfect shade, just layer and combine the ones you already have to make your own.
Here are some of our favorite glitter polishes, from extreme glitters to subtle shimmery polishes.
