New Year’s Eve is one of the few times of the year when it really feels like you have to make an effort.
You’ve picked out your dress. You’ve figured out what you’ll actually be doing on the night (overpriced night out or convincing your mates to throw a house party. The choice is obvious). You’ve perfected your smokey eye. The only thing left to do is your nails. That’s how you show everyone how festive and together you truly are – and how you set the tone for the year ahead.
Yes, with your nail art. That’s how important it truly is. Here are all the snazzy design ideas and trends you need, either for creating at home or showing to a qualified nail expert if it’s all a bit too fiddly.
1. Add a touch of gold foil
It’s easily done, and the more grownup version of the classic glittery look.
2. Add a touch of glitter
Painting on a scattering of glitter on the tips of your nails looks like loads of effort, but is actually super simple.
3. Or go all out
If there’s a time to cover yourself in glitter, it’s New Year’s Eve.
4. Try chrome nails trend
You’ll probably want to go to a salon for the true chrome effect.
