BLACK AND GOLD
Few color pairings strike that perfect balance of edgy and glamorous like black and gold. Make your nails your main accessory with this bold combo.
Holidays are all about the sparkle and shimmer of the season! No manicure can be as sparkling and twinkling as a glitter manicure.
PEARL NAIL DESIGN
Start the new year by letting your artistic side shine bright. Outline your nail with black and white pearls for Insta-worthy nail art that everyone will be copying.
We love an ombré nail look (who doesn’t love ombre, right?). We love muted neutrals because they are so classic, chic, and subtle. So why not combine the two? A cozy ombre manicure will be perfect to go with any New Year’s Eve outfit.
Sequins for New Year’s Eve isn’t a radically new idea and that’s okay—we need the sparkle more than ever this season.
COPPER NAIL COLOR
Copper is the prettiest gold alternative and the perfect winter shade. It’s all in the details. You can never go wrong with a pretty copper polish shade, but to add something a little extra dress it up with adorable small designs or decals.
NAIL ART FEATURING GOLD FOILS
Elevate any nail polish for New Year’s Eve with the gold foil detail. Also, wearing short-shaped nails is particularly great for extending the life of a chipped mani.
Marble effect is simply mesmerizing and hypnotizing on your fingernails!
Update the classic French manicure by painting the tip halfway for an abstract and graphic look. Beside the classic pink and white, we also love the choice of contrasting colors like black and pink.
GOLD FRENCH TIPS
The French manicure is here to stay and for New Year’s Eve, we say opt for a metallic gold tip that will instantly dress up any plain nail.
Chevron tips are a great way to accentuate length, especially on almond or stiletto nail shapes. Layer different colors and finishes to make it more New Year’s Eve-friendly.
OCEAN BLUE NAIL SHADE
Deep indigo is easily one of our favorite shades; this color is just so regal and lovely for your nail style. For New Year’s Eve, we love to dress it up in an ultra-glossy finish with glitter accents (or full hand glitter, it’s up to you).
Is there anything more fun than polka dots? To make them really pop, pair them against a nude or pale pink nail.
Glitter and sparkle not your thing? Go artistic with an abstract nail. Mix a bunch of your favorite colors against a white nail to make them really pop.
For the laid back, monochromatic nails will do as a New Year’s Eve look, especially if you don’t have any plans on the calendar.
How to upgrade a classic sheer manicure? Easy! To make it get more New Year’s Eve vibes, choose a base color with a hint of shimmer.
