Stila Glitter Nail Polish

Several months back, around the holidays this past winter, I purchased two sets of nail polish that I saw had been put out by Stila, the popular cosmetics company.

The polishes looked very pretty and sparkly, and there was a sale at the time if you bought both sets of 4-minis, so I decided to go for it.

I was recently asked by a friend if I could swatch them, so that is what I am sharing with you today.

The two sets are called "Daring" and "Delicate".

I will post the "Daring" Swatches first:
  • Confetti - clear base with green, red and gold glitter
  • Firecracker - clear base with ruby red sparkle
  • Disco Ball - clear base with purple and teal glitter
  • City Lights - gold with rainbow multi-color glitter
Confetti: Alone, Over Black, Over White

Firecracker: Alone, Over Black, Over Red
Disco Ball - Alone, Over Black, Over Purple

City Lights: Alone, Over Black, Over White

 And next up, The Delicate set:
  • Icicle - clear base with rainbow multi-color glitter
  • Stardust - clear base with pink and purple glitter
  • Chandelier - clear base with deep purple & rainbow multi-color glitter
  • Kitten - nude base with gold and silver pearl
Icicle: Alone, Over Black, Over White

Stardust: Alone, Over Black, Over Pink

Chandelier: Alone, Over Black, Over light blue

Kitten (stand alone polish)

Overall I think these are decent polishes.  I do find it odd that out of 8, only one (Kitten) is a stand-alone polish.  The rest definitely benefit from layering depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

These are still available on the stila website for $14.00 per set of 4.

What do you think of these glitters?   Did you pick them up when they came out?

  1. I think my favorite is the second set for sure. Really pretty but it sure is odd that there's only one stand alone.
