>”Glitter polishes are so popular because they’re a quick way to add shine,” says celebrity makeup artist Holly Chapman. “My clients of all ages wear it.” Spring brings even more shimmer, with new colors and a new base coat that makes changing colors easier. Instead of soaking your nails in polish remover to take off the last of the old glitter, try OPI’s new Glitter Off Base Coat ($9; ulta.com). Apply before polish, and when you’re ready to remove the color, just use a cuticle stick to push and peel the polish off the nail.
