25 New Year’s Nail Designs
1. Nudey Christmas Nails
Some people don’t love color and we get it. We don’t agree with it, but we get it. For those people, a neutral manicure like this one is the move, even on the sparkliest day of the year.
2. Winter French Tip Nails
These are the perfect nails for that weird week between Christmas and New Year’s. Is it a holiday? Do we still have to work? Do these nails fit any occasion?
3. Twinkle Star Nails
Has anyone else noticed that stars only look like this during winter holidays or is it just us? Either way, they make for a glittery gold manicure that’s cute and festive.
4. Simple Glitter-Dipped Nails
Get this look by dipping the tip of your nail in glitter–hence the name. Be sure to not dip the whole thing or else we’ll have to rebrand it to soaked.
5. NYE Sparkle Nails
Sparkles like the ones on the tips and base of these nails are especially great two times a year: New Year’s Eve and your birthday. Unless you’re a New Year’s baby. Then we guess you can wear some on Earth Day.
6. Double French Tip Nails
Who needs one French tip when you can have two? This fresh take on the classic mani adds a simple shimmery line beneath the tip. And begs the question: at what point do French tips turn into stripes?
7. Black French Tip Nails
Look, black goes with everything, your new New Year’s Eve outfit included.
8. Festive Tips
Match the tinsel still leftover from Christmas, because we know you’re not taking down your tree until at least the middle of January. This design is simple enough to DIY, just layer on your favorite glitter nail polish shades.
9. Blue New Year’s Nails
You’ve heard of blue Christmas? How about blue New Year’s? That’s when you sit inside alone in your pajamas and fall asleep by nine. At least your nails will be cute with midnight blue polish and flecks of silver layered on top.
10. Fireworks Nails
Hopefully, you’ll get to see fireworks to commemorate the New Year. If not, these nails will fill that void. Simply add colorful lines over a black base, and top with a clear glitter if you’re feeling it.
11. Moon and Star Nails
Embrace your star sign with this New Year’s nail design featuring symbols like eyes, moons, and stars over a midnight blue French tip. Do we think the Big Dipper could fit on one nail?
12. Cheers Nails
Celebrate with all the icons of New Years Eve: a clock, a champagne glass, some fireworks. All that’s missing is the Pedialyte bedside the next morning.
13. Stars and Streamers Nails
Unfortunately you can’t just sweep these streamers up. Instead you’ll need a nail drill, some acetone, and patience. But before then, you’ll need some holographic gel nail polish and even more patience.
14. Countdown Clock Nails
According to the clocks on these nails, it’s almost midnight. Twenty-four hours a day. Count the specks in the multi-colored glitter accent nails if you want a more accurate reading.
15. Evil Eye Nails
Evil eyes are said to ward off bad spirits, so hopefully wearing them on your nails atop a nude base will protect you. Another thing that will protect you? Declining your ex’s late-night booty call.
16. Champagne Glass Nails
These can be champagne nails or sparkling apple cider nails, depending on your vibe. All you need is a sparkly gold shade, a matte black one, and some basic painting skills.
17. Garnet Nails
Garnet is the birthstone for January, after all. They symbolize protection, friendship, trust, commitment, and love, which are all things we would love to start our year off with.
18. Sparkles and Stars
Why not combine two festive ideas into one? A shimmery silver dip at the tips, layered underneath evenly placed black stars makes for quite a memorable mani.
19. Black and Silver Nails
This mismatched nail design is the perfect amount of sparkle for those who want some pizazz without accidentally blinding someone if the light hits you in the wrong way.
20. Hypnotic Diamond Nails
You are getting very sleepy from this nail design using BrillBird UK’s Hypnotic Diamond. Hopefully, you wake up in time for midnight.
21. Chrome Gold Accent Nails
A simple design for a simple gal. The accent nail has a certain je ne sais quois. We’re working on our French, but we’re pretty sure that means chrome star.
22. Silver French Tip Nails
New year, new French tip. We’re upgrading a classic with this one using sparkly silver nail polish for minimalist tips.
23. Glitter Twinkle Nails
This nail design can be done with any color of glitter. All that matters is it twinkles. So no matte black glitter. We’re sure that exists.
24. Gold Flake Nails
This nail design will ensure your coming year is as good as gold. Well, a good manicure can’t actually do that. But it will ensure you’re in a good mood if something bad happens, thanks to the matte black with gold fleck accents.
