The Best Silver Acrylic Nails of 2019 – Kara Reveals Her Top 5 Silver Nail Polishes

Like gold, silver is both a color and a precious metal. It possesses cooler qualities than the warm hues of gold, and can indicate deep thinking, femininity and spiritual awakening. Whilst it can look both industrial and contemporary, silver is glamor and elegance incarnate. More fun and playful than grey, more mystical than platinum, silver is at home in any environment, encouraging eloquence and grace in the wearer. 

Having the power to draw negative energy away, replacing it with positive, silver, in many cultures, has healing powers, and suggests the unknown. However, I know I love silver nails, so here’s my top three fake silver polishes. 

 

1)  OPI Nail Polish – Radiance

What Makes it Great

Bright and glowing with a platinum-like shine, this super polish from OPI is rich and luxuriant, with a shimmer to die for. After a gentle buffing, the dusting of sparkles could light up a room, catching the attention of every pair of eyes. I would wear this all day everyday, and did for over two weeks before the first chip appeared. 

Where it Could be Improved

I was expecting to have to apply several coats of this silver polish, and three gave my nails a stunning shine and mirror-smooth finish.

The Final Verdict

With an air of mystery and calm confidence, this glorious silver polish is long lasting, super shiny and awesomely fabulous!

2) ZOYA Nail Polish – Trixie

What Makes it Great

Trixie from Zoya has a beautiful shine, akin to polished metal on your nails. Chic and edgy, it suits any occasion and any skin tone, and after buffing, displays a glistening foil finish dazzle. Replicating metal still further, the durability allowed it to stay damage-free for nearly three weeks. 

Where it Could be Improved

Trixie needed a little gentle rolling to mix the glitter thoroughly through the liquid.

If you’re looking for a mirror finish, with all the beauty of the purest silver, this is the one for you.

3) China Glaze Nail Polish – Platinum Silver

What Makes it Great

China Glaze always produce awesome polishes and they’ve done it again with Platinum Silver. Aptly named, this is, indeed, a light silver reminiscent of bright platinum, especially once given a gentle buff. Great with jeans, suits or evening attire, this polish shimmers and shines every time, and I lost count of the amount of compliments I got for the full two weeks of wearing it.

Where it Could be Improved

In order to produce a deep, solid mirror-smooth finish, I had to apply two coats.

The Final Verdict

Every manicure fan needs a silver in their color collection, and this would make an awesome addition. It’s a must-have.
