Now that Christmas is over, it's time to set our sights on another special night of the year: New Year's Eve! If there's ever a time to shine, it's December 31st, when the champagne is fizzing and the disco ball is sparkling. Why not channel the same festive vibes into your NYE look? The dress? Sequins! The makeup? Shimmery! The manicure? Glitter, of course!
Cheery yet stylish and whimsical without being childish, glitter manicures are an excellent way to complete a totally festive look! Here are 3 gorgeous ways to try glitter nail art...
All fingers created equal
Is "There's Never Enough Sparkle" your personal motto? If so, paint each fingernail with your favorite shade of glittering polish, layering as needed to get a truly opaque finish. For NYE, we especially love silver, gold, emerald green, and purple!
An awesome accent
You can't risk going overboard (or feeling like you are the disco ball) with an accent nail! Paint your nails a beautiful shade of midnight blue, black, nude or red, and then complement your base shade with a glittering accent nail! The index and ring fingers are the most popular choices!
Mix n' Match trends
If you love Negative Space, French Tips or Galaxy manicures, incorporate glittery polish into them for a dose of glitz! Think golden glitter with transparent triangles or tiny flecks of glitter that resemble stars in the night sky - the options are truly endless!
Whatever you choose, just remember to protect your nails with a base coat to protect the nail bed. Then finish off your look with a glossy top coat to keep your manicure in place and perfect all night long!
