Nail polish is so good because it is the same size for everyone regardless of your skin tone. The problem starts when you have to choose which one you want to use because there are so many options out there. There are hundreds of colors to choose from and as many surfaces as you can find them in. Nail polish brands are far better off today as they have added surfaces like flakie, duochrome and holographic nail polish to the usual cream and shimmer finish that existed before. Don't worry if you don't understand any of this, this guide will show you the difference between each available finish.

1. Cream
This is the standard of Polish surface treatments. It is the most common and is available in various solid colors. This is great for when you have had many decorated nails and want a break.

2. Suede
They have a silver tinted shimmer but are also matte and look completely unique and wonderful.

3. Structured
When this polish surface dries it is grainy and rough and has many sparkles reflected in sunlight. His dries very quickly and a base coat can improve the look.

4. Glitter
This polish finish can actually be added to any color base and the glitter can be made in various shapes from hexagons to circles and triangles. It can be difficult to remove them so think before you apply.

5. Skimmer
This looks like a cream polish finish got a boost of tiny micro glitter that literally shimmer.

6. Neon
The color of this polish is the real catch because different neon polishes can have different structures and not just cream. They may look like cream in the bottle but actually appear matte when dry.

7. Matt
This polish finish is gloss-free. You can get a top coat to make your regular polish or you can get a matte finish in different colors. It looks very elegant but gets thinner the longer you wear it.

8. Holographic
Holographic nail polish is like using improved glitter powder but much easier to remove. It looks amazing when the sun reflects on it and even hard to capture in a photo.

This polish finish looks very elegant on the nails. But it is very tricky to avoid streaks when applying this finish so be careful.

10. Duochrome

12. lie

14. Foil
This is on the metal side but may look like there is aluminum foil on the nails.
