New Year’s Eve Nail Design #1: Fireworks

To create a New Year’s Eve fireworks scene nail design on your fingernails, follow these steps:

1.    Paint the background of your nails with a dark basecoat, such as navy blue or midnight blue, black, or deep purple. This serves as the sky portion of your design.
2.    Allow the basecoat to dry completely and determine if a second coat of the same color is necessary. If so, paint and allow this to dry as well.
3.    Using a nail polish paint pen or a toothpick and desired color of nail polish, paint a series of curved lines to create the firework. Use more than one color if desired.
4.    Allow to dry.
5.    Consider painting a clear or glitter topcoat.

New Year’s Eve Nail Design #2: Confetti

To create New Year’s Eve nail designs with confetti, follow these steps:

1.    Paint the desired basecoat color.
2.    Allow the basecoat to dry completely and determine if a second coat of the same color is necessary. If so, paint and allow this to dry as well.
3.    Using a variety of colors you like, paint tiny specks or curlicues to create confetti.
4.    Allow these nail designs to dry completely.
6.    Consider painting a clear or glitter topcoat.

New Year’s Eve Nail Design #3: Bottle of Champagne

To create New Year’s Eve champagne bottle nail designs, follow these steps:

1.    Paint the desired basecoat color.
2.    Allow the basecoat to dry completely and determine if a second coat of the same color is necessary. If so, paint and allow this to dry as well.
3.    Paint a green bottle on each nail or on a single fingernail if desired.
4.    Allow the champagne bottle or bottles to dry completely.
5.    Once dry, paint a label for the champagne bottle. A simple square or rectangle in a solid color will do.
6.    Using a gold nail polish or a light brown nail polish or another color if desired, paint the cork.
Tip: For an extra festive New Year’s Eve nail design, paint the popping cork and bubbles coming from the bottle.
7.    Allow to dry completely.
8.    Consider painting a clear or glitter topcoat.

5.    Paint an upright cone or triangle for the party hats.
