Beauty: Product debunk What's all the fuss about... sparkly nail polish?; We love a bit of glitz at Christmas. But not all that glitters in the bottle looks as shimmery on the nails. We brushed on four of the latest dazzling offerings to rate their festive factor...

Byline: Tricia Welch

Miss Sporty Quick Dry Nail Polish, pounds 1.79. There are three sparkly polishes in this range: Bubblegum Pink gives best colour cover, while Star Gaze and Disco Diva have a subtler shimmer. All are touch-dry in 60 secs - fab. llll

Nails Inc Glitter Polish in Electric Avenue, pounds 9 (020-7499 8333). A sheer shade infused with glitter. Wear it alone for a hint of glitz or over your normal polish. Gives a delicate finish - good for sophisticates who don't want to scream, `I dazzle.' lll

Collection 2000 Alloy Nail Polish, pounds 2.49. Six nail polishes containing aluminium for a high-shine finish which make nails look like they've been dipped in molten metal. Great for a hi-tech effect. llll

M's choice Revlon Speed Shine Mini Nail Enamels in Viva La Diva, pounds 5.99. Four mini-nail enamels in must-have shades - two shimmery and two full-on sparklers. The silver-flecked purple Shazam, and silver and black Comet are dazzling. A great buy. lllll
