One of the things we love most about New Year’s Eve is that it’s not only acceptable but actually encouraged to wear as much glitter and sparkle as your heart desires. A festive manicure can be a great way to add a little shine to an otherwise neutral outfit. Nothing says “Happy New Year” quite like touches of silver and gold, so we’ve rounded up some of the best metallic manicure ideas to help you ring in 2023 in style.
Silver Velvet Nails
Velvet nails have officially replaced the glazed donut look as the hottest nail trend of 2022, and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be going away anytime soon. We love the elegance of this silver velvet mani for New Year’s Eve and beyond.
Gold Foil Nails
Why use gold polish when you can go for real gold? This look uses gold leaf, which can be found at most arts and craft stores, to create a bold look that’s easy to recreate at home.
Serious sparkle enthusiasts can take things to the next level by placing crystals over a base of silver polish. This artist used rectangular crystals to create the look of a disco ball, which happens to look just like the one that drops in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
