Whether you are attending a party, hanging with a few pals or spending the night on the couch in your pajamas, a fun, festive manicure is a great way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. In the spirit of channeling all the good vibes for 2024, we’ll be ringing in the New Year with tons of sparkle, confetti and champagne — on our nails that is. No matter what your celebration looks like this year, we’re sharing our favorite nail looks to rock on December 31st, below.

New Year’s Eve Manicure Ideas

Oh, So Fancy

If your vibe is sleek and sophisticated, we suggest recreating this retro-inspired manicure. The black and white graphic designs keep the look simple, but the glitter accent adds a fun pop that’s perfect for New Year’s Eve. Plus, if you’re getting dressed up, this nail art pairs perfectly with a little black dress. Looking for the quintessential shiny black nail polish? Try Essie Licorice

The Sparklier, the Better

Counting down until midnight and watching the ball drop? Yep, us too. To really get in the spirit, try recreating the colorful shimmer of the ball on your nails. We love the pastel vibe here, but you can also swap out the base for black polish and do silver or gold dots for an edgier take.

Bring on the Confetti

There’s no such thing as too much glitter — and this sequin nail art is proof. This lucite-effect mani with floating, shiny specs looks uber cool. If you can’t make it to the nail salon, DIY this design by using some nail glue to place sequins or confetti on your nail and cover with a top coat. 

Poppin’ Bottles

No New Year’s Eve celebration is complete without a bit of bubbly. Whether you’re popping champagne IRL or just getting in the spirit by recreating this adorable manicure, we hope you make the last night of 2023 a good one.

Sophisticated Shine

Not a fan of nail art? You can still get in the NYE spirit by picking a holographic, icy or pearlized polish. You can’t go wrong with a winter shade like Essie Expressie Immaterial Frost
