Best Sparkling Nail Polishes for Christmas 2016

I don’t know what is going on with me but I am very into glitter and sequins lately.

But why all those talks? I just want to share the sparkling nail polishes which are new for this season which caught my eye. And these are not all the options, just the ones I like.
