Choose holographic over glittery nail looks
Rather than go for the typical sparkling holiday nail, try a holographic “shattered glass” nail; it still catches the light but is much more interesting—and surprisingly easy to do yourself.

Next, one finger at a time, she applied topcoat, followed by placing holographic cellophane she precut into geometric shapes with a tweezer, followed by a second coat of top coat.

After a summer full of rigorous testing, we’re happy to announce that NYLON’s very first digital Beauty Hit List is here, honoring the best of the best from this past year’s launches.
For the past few months, we have put product after product to the test, narrowing down the thousands—yes, thousands—of launches that made their way to our office. Each product—whether a formula, a collection, or an industry-revolutionizing product—launched between August 2017 and, well, today. We tested items within a cool 81 different categories, including skin care, hair care, makeup, and nails.
