Start by using glitter as a highlight on other designs.

While these hearts would be cute on their own, adding color-matched glitter polish on top of them gives the overall design more dimension and fun!

The gecko design by itself is simple, but by painting on a few wisps of gold glitter, the entire look comes together, giving the design a more artistic feel.

Striping glitter is a way to make an abstract or basic stripe design POP!

The first design here is made up of simple thick stripes. But when the glitter is painted along with the yellow as a divider stripe for each color, the colors are unified. Plus, the glitter adds sparkle to what otherwise would’ve been a basic look. (And don’t overlook the ability of a glitter stripe to hide any uneven lines!)

Animal prints are always a client fave. Just throwing in a few glitter stripes to a basic zebra print makes the design shine!

French tips are no longer the nudes of the past. And what better way to play than with glitter!

The rainbow design uses the traditional French tip shape and adds bling. Glitter tips like this one are also huge Bride pleasers!

The flower French puts the glitter tip at an angle and adds pizzazz to otherwise Earthy tones. (Then notice the glitter highlights in the flower!)

Dazzling with glitter is a great way to make a colorful design sparkle. Instead of using regular polish, grab a bottle of glitter polish!

While highlighting adds glitter after the design is painted, this tropical flower look is created with glitter polish, so the glitter is the crux of the design, (both as the base coat and in the flowers) giving sparkle all the way through.

This St. Tropez look is created by building contrast between regular or matte polish and glitter polish for a stunning look.

Advanced artists can use glitter acrylic to create 3-D designs. It’s like adding the icing to the cake!

Using sculpting techniques, you can build a unique design for your client’s personal taste. This rockabilly inspired pink skull and crossbones is both girly and tough!

If you just want to practice with abstract art, then glitter acrylic is the way to go. It adds beauty as well as texture.
