Nail Polish Battle 2022: Toppers and Glitters

Today's battle is glitters and topper polishes, I have 12 in this category;

Barry M Meringue // Rimmel Mermaid Fin // FUN Amethyst // DRK Splendor // Nails Inc Taken for Granite // Orly Bubbly Bombshell // Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle // Fancy Gloss Candy Cane // Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe // Fancy Gloss Sapphire Shards // Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance // Bright and Polished Black Dots

This category is a catch all for anything slightly different, so it's difficult to pit a shimmer topper against a glitter or thermal. After some thinking the following are my top three;

Amethyst ended up in third place, it is a ghost flakie topper in a amethyst colour. It looks particularly nice over a black.

Candy Cane is a glitter thermal, going from pink to red with red and white glitters. It's very much a Christmas appropriate polish.

The winner of this round is Sapphire Shards, which is another thermal going from light blue to dark blue with small blue flakies within. Rather than specifically Christmas appropriate this can be worn during winter and throughout the year.
