As the end of December arrives, it’s time to start gearing up for those New Year’s Eve celebrations. While a sparkly dress is sure to grab attention, these New Year’s nail designs might just steal the show. That is, unless you’ve decided 2023 is your year to forgo clothes completely.
These creative nail looks are the perfect accessory to a midnight kiss, sip of champagne, or bite into a cupcake. The designs include everything from splashy bling to promote good luck next year, to simple designs that convey you’re only at the party for the mini hot dogs.
Don’t forget your Tupperware. 2023 is going to be epic.
