NYX - Glitters

I swatched my NYX glitter polishes. I received them a million years ago, but I always wanted to swatch and post them as a set. So here they are! This is however, not all the glitters that NYX has. Just the ones that I have. I should have received another one that never came now that I think of it. Hopefully it will show up one day!Lime Sparkle - Lime jelly polish with green glitter. I love the concept of this one, but I don't think it was very flattering on me. 3 coats. EDIT: This is listed on NYX website as "Simple Sparkle". When I first saw it, it was Lime Sparkle. When I got around to ordering it, it was call Simple Sparkle. However, the bottle came labeled Lime Sparkle. So don't be scared if you can't find it.

Dark Red Glitter - Easy naming! I don't think it's that dark, however. Red jelly with red glitter and silver, holo glitter. This is three coats.

Silver Blue - More easy names! Silver round glitter and blue bar glitter. I believe this was two coats.

Asphalt - Black jelly with gold, red, blue, green and silver glitter. It's like birthday confetti! I love it! This is definitely my fave. I was soooo amazed at what I discovered when I shot it macro. The glitter is actually square! I had no clue! For months! I thought it was round this whole time!! And there is also itty-bitty microscopic round glitter pieces too! Impressive. This is 3 coats.

What do you think? Sparkly, no?


  1. Those are great! I love Asphalts square glitter, I too thought confetti at first sight lol.

  2. i love dark red glitter! great choices as always ;)

  3. Sparkly? Um, YEAH! Those are all so pretty and I love that they actually have a base color rather than just glitter. You have reminded me that I picked up 5-6 of these months ago and never tried them!

  4. I have 2 of Dark Red Glitter. I accidentally ordered 2 instead of one of Asphalt. I was so annoyed with myself. I have Lime Glitter but not Lime Sparkle. I couldn't find it listed on the NYX website. I have to order Asphalt. It is really gorgeous.

  5. I love Asphalt, it is one of my favs. ^^ Looks amazing, that Lime Sparkle looks fantastic on you.

  6. Kae - I love that square glitter too! I love this polish more now that I know it's square!

    kelliegonzo - Thank you! Dark Red Glitter is pretty cool!

    Mary - I really love when glitter polish has a base color. Clear bases turn me off a bit. Unless they are PACKED with glitter! You have got to try them!

    Lucy - I edited the post about Lime Sparkle. You couldn't find it because it's now listed as "Simple Sparkle". It's there! Don't worry!
    And def get Asphalt! It's amazing.

    clockwork - Isn't Asphalt the s***?! Thank you for saying so! I didn't think it was great on me!

  7. Those are TOO COOL!!! Thanks for swatching and sharing! That last is definitely my favorite too.

  8. Nicole - You are welcome! I'm glad you like them!

  9. This is so crazy! I have a post for tomorrow with a swatch of Lime Sparkle! I love itso much, so beautiful. I have Asphalt too, and I see now that ablack base is almosta must, at least for me. :)

  10. Alexlydra - Awesome! I can't wait to see your post!

    I totally agree about the black base. When I wear it as a manicure I plan to do it that way.

  11. lol! we ordered all the same glitters! Great pics!
