    Think more creatively and polish your nails with solid nail paint. Gently apply topcoat and let your nails dry. Now paint your nails with any of your favourite glittery nail polishes. Top it a loose glitter and let it dry completely. Top your nails by painting stars, flowers, hearts or any of your favourite designs. Finish off with another and final coat of glittery nail polish.
