Do You Prefer Your Nail Polish With or Without Shimmer?

I'm not sure why, but I am much more inclined to put a shimmery polish on my toes than on my nails. There's something distracting about having luminosity on my fingertips that deters me every time I'm about to give myself a manicure. Do you have a strong preference toward plain or glittery nail varnishes?

I like them both equally ps: The red polish isn't matte it's a shimmer

I prefer a creme nailpolish. I'm not much for shimmer, glitter, metallic, or pearlescent polish. Occasionally I'll don something with a very faint pearl or shimmer, but usually I just stick to creme.

I like sparkles, it ups the glam factor for me. I usually go with subtle shades though.

I like the matte polish. I sometimes like shimmer, but I completely hate the ones with sparkle in them. They are so hard to remove, glitter gets everywhere, and they don't even look that good. So I never use the glitter polish.

Sometimes shimmer is okay... I like matte the best.... glitter is gross though and makes me feel 12 years old.

I have a glitter top coat from OPI that I wear alone on my fingernails, it's not too much, just enough. Toes are always red, no glitter or shimmer. :)

I like both; It depends on my mood or where I am going. Usually I wear a clear polish (or light pink) and use a top coat that has little pink shimmers that reflect light. It's more simple and makes it easy to go with outfits. Although I do love to wear my Chanel Blue Satin polish with a top coat of shimmer; it looks fun.

Scratch that, GLITTER is tacky. Shimmer is fine. But I still prefer matte.

that glitter in the picture is way too much. i like the shimmery kind that makes it change color a little in the sun.. makes it look dimensional. but noo glitter.
