Nothing says the holidays like a fresh, sparkling manicure. From glitter decal to metallic embellishments, there’s no shortage of festive, eye-catching options for your nails this season.

When planning your New Year’s Eve manicure, look no further than these three spectacular nail lacquer lines. Whether you prefer a rich burgundy hue or a fantastic silver shimmer, our favorite black-owned polish brands will meet your holiday needs.

Get to know our faves:


Lisi Cosmetics

We have yet to find a glitter nail polish that’s thicker and more saturated than Lisi Cosmetics’ offerings. Owned by Lisa Hill, the makeup brand boasts a nail lacquer line with a vast selection of colors at an unbelievably affordable price ($4.90!). LoveBrownSugar nail lacquer, a decadent shimmery brown named for the fashion and beauty blog of the same name, is our top pick for the holiday. Go glitter-crazy with their delectable glimmering lacquers: Supa Natural (multicolor glitter) and DejaVu (gold glitter). Shop here and here.

    Thanks for this information, Clutch!

    I went to these sites to find out information about their polish formula and whether they were Big 3 Free along with parabens and other undesirables but couldn’t find much information. G&L are vegan friendly but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are B3F. That’s the only thing that would deter me from purchasing these polishes.

    Sation nail polish is either black owned or recognized as a minority (black, asian, native and hispanic) owned business. All their nail polish is Big 3 Free.
