Every New Year’s Eve we spend countless hours trying to out-sparkle our friends with glittery dresses, eyeshadows, shoes- you name it. But this year, 10 small things are about to become first on our list, our fingernails. Yes, this year’s manicures are taking their spot at the top, bringing glitter, shine, and top coat to a whole new level.
We scanned the masses out there and found that there is a large chance that people may be commenting more on your nails than what you’re wearing on your feet.

Add some flavor to your everyday French manicure by mixing in colorful sparkles. We love how this look strays away from just silver and gold and instead uses multi-colored glitter.
This look is like a fancy tuxedo for your nails, complete with pizazz and, of course, a bow tie. This look would go perfectly with a little black dress.
For all of you girly girls out there, here is a perfect way to spice up your light pink nails. Keeping nails short still achieves simplicity without going too overboard with the glitter.
