Bling in a Bottle: Summer Send-Off Sparkle Manis

As a beauty blogger, I get most of my ideas from people, places and pop culture. I've learned to keep my camera close at hand, since I never know when inspiration may strike next.

This summer, I couldn't help but notice the growing popularity of sparkle mani tips. Glitter, shimmer and metallic polishes have rocked red carpets and runways for years, but partially pairing them with a solid color has taken the trend to a whole new level. 

The stunning style statement of sparkle manis can only be described in three syllables: Ah-maz-ing. Their jewel-like, carat-cut quality brightens your look--as well as your outlook--and promotes a runway-ready radiance. Plus, they can be worn by women of all ages and skin tones, and serve as an inexpensive indulgence. Call them bargain bling in a bottle.

As summer comes to a close, paint the town and your tips with the latest looks and lacquers. They're guaranteed to dazzle your digits this Labor Day holiday weekend, and bid farewell to the season in a big, beautiful way.
