New Years Nails: Fabulous Designs For Your Next Celebration

Nov 3, '20

The start of another year is always a reason to celebrate. The New Year represents so many things, new beginnings, resolutions, and a fresh start. Ringing in the new year is the perfect time to help your clients express themselves through the nail art. 

Nails are a great way to add that extra something to your party outfit. There are so many designs to pick from that are hot right now that you’ll want to try them all! Here are some of the best nails to ring you into 2021.

Reverse French With Glitter

This is a fun twist on a French manicure. Instead of the tips of the nails being the accent, the base is. You can do this look with a glossy black color as a base and do the accent with gold or silver glitter. Carefully apply the glitter on the very edge near the cuticles. 

Style of nails these look best on: Almond.

Colorful Confetti

This look is certain to make you the life of the party. You can start with a clear coat and then top it off with lots of colorful confetti looking sparkles. Arrange in a particular style, or just scatter them on the nails randomly. Kick it up a notch with a few gemstones. 

Style of nails these look best on: Round.

Chrome

This nail style is sure to catch people’s eye with its mirror effect. It can bring some sophistication to any outfit you are wearing out for the night. The bright silver will catch the light wherever you go making you look as glamorous as the ball that drops at midnight. 

Style of nails these look best on: Square or Oval.

Festive French

Another variation of the classic French manicure is a glitter tip. Start with a clear or light pink base, and then cover the tips of their nails in glitter for a simple yet beautiful nail look. This is another neutral look that can really go with any pop of color you add to someone’s style.

Champagne Bubbles

Bringing in the New Year always calls for a toast. A champagne inspired nail is perfect for this holiday and for raising your glass at midnight. Use a champagne color base and then dot with golden bubbles for the full effect. 

Style of nails these look best on: Coffin.

Golden Lines

This design is a fresh take on stripes. Use any color base that you want and then create either one or two vertical lines with gold glitter. Vary each finger with a different number of lines. If you want the look to be more simple looking, stick with a nude base.

Holo Accents

If they’re looking for a subtle shine for their nail look, then this is the design for you. Instead of a fully holographic nail, go for a small holographic accent in the middle of their nail. This has a funky and fun geometric look that’s perfect for parties on New Year’s Eve.

Style of nails these look best on: Stiletto. 

Silver Foil

Another neutral look to try is silver foil flecks on top of a nude shade of nail polish. Almost resembling tin foil, this nail design can be fun without being over the top. Make sure you add the silver flecks on the outer ¾ of the nail bed.

Gold And Silver Triangles

A look that can last through the entire holiday season is silver and gold. It doesn’t scream either Christmas or New Year’s, so it can work for both. You can try this look with a nude base and then add a gold triangle at the base of the nail, with a complimentary silver triangle at the tip of the nail. This is known as a double moon manicure but with a triangle variation. 

Style of nails these look best on: Round.

Copper And Black

Have you ever wanted your nails to look like a copper Moscow mule mug? That’s exactly what you’ll get with this nail. This shiny coppery-black design is both festive and fun. We promise you won’t regret these nails the morning after. 

Style of nails these look best on: Oval.

Honeycomb

One of the coolest shape formation found in nature is the honeycomb. So, of course, it’s been applied to nail art. Start with a light pink base and then design a honeycomb pattern on the nails consisting of hexagons that are all connected to each other.

Party On The Side

You’ve probably heard the phrase “business in the front, party in the back.” Well, imagine the nail version of this saying, and you’ve got these nails. They’re half french manicure and half sparkle, split right down the middle. You can get this effect by first doing a regular french manicure and then adding sparkle to the left or right half of the nail. If “business casual” was a nail design, it would be this one. 

Style of nails these look best on: Oval.

Pink And Purple Moons

If you’re looking for a pop of color for your New Year’s look, you can try this nail design. Purple and pink always look good together, especially on nails. You can do rounded ovals of pink on the base, and put purple at the tips of the nail. You can also reverse the colors if you prefer. Why not be bold for the new year?

Style of nails these look best on: Round or Oval.

Starry Night

Just like the classic painting, this look is dreamy. You can start with a dark blue base coat that has sparkles, and then create star shapes with white or cream polish. Their nails will look just like the night sky and glimmer like it too!

Style of nails these look best on: Round.

Accent Nail

This is another understated look that has a pop of extra packed in it. Start with any color base that you want (such as burgundy) and pick a nail as the accent. On that nail, you can add whatever sparkle or shapes that you want. You can pick either one or more than one accent nail for this look. 

Style of nails these look best on: Square.

Bubblegum Nails

Not every New Year’s look has to be silver or gold. If you want a fun twist on a shimmery nail, you can opt for a bright pink design. Do a nude or light pink base coat and top it off with bright pink sparkles on their entire nail, or just on the edges. 

Style of nails these look best on: Round.

Rose Gold

Rose gold is a hot trend right now. It’s on everything from iPhones to cars. If you want a look that’s dainty and cute, then try this one. Start with a light pink base coat, and then add a gold glitter layer on top. 

Style of nails these look best on: Coffin.

Sparkle And Matte

If you want the best of both worlds, then you should definitely do this nail look. Opposites attract, and this is certainly true for this matte and sparkly combination. You can start with a glittery dark-colored polish on their nail, and then add a matte top coat on the top half of the nail. It may take a few coats to perfect the matte coat, but the end result is worth the time. 

Style of nails these look best on: Almond.

Silver Glitter

A faded glitter look is a New Year’s staple. You can use a nude or pink base color and then sprinkle little bits of silver glitter starting at the base and getting heavier toward the tips. This is a look that perfect for all the festivities you’ll be attending this season. 

Style of nails these look best on: Oval or Square.

Simple Nude With Jewels

If you aren’t feeling a bold nail look for this holiday, then this look is for you. Simple nude nails can still be beautiful and chic. A nude base coat with tiny jewels outlining the nail bed can be a really neat balance between simplicity and extravagance. 

Style of nails these look best on: Almond.

In Summary

No matter what your client’s style is, there is a New Year’s Eve nail design that is perfect for them. Try one or all of these nail looks to express yourself at any party you attend. Anything that you pick, whether its sparkles or gems, is sure to catch that special someone’s eye, so you’ll be sure to get that midnight kiss.
