This New Year’s Eve, it’s already been decided… no parties for me. Nope. No glittery mini dress, no platform heels, no dancing till 4 AM. Feel free to call me the New Year’s Grinch! Instead, I plan on a wonderful and quiet evening with my boyfriend, watching New Year’s Rockin Eve on TV and popping a bottle of champagne at midnight (my bum comfortably planted on my own couch). So in lieu of a sparkly party frock, I intend on making my nails as fantastic as possible for the first moments of 2014. Check out my picks for the perfect nail colors for New Year’s Eve!
All That Glitters
Formula X for Sephora – Hubba Hubble – Silver iridescent glitter, perfect for putting on top of a black or gold base for an appropriately sparkly New Year’s manicure.
China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze – Be Merry Be Bright – Bright purple/fuschia and blue glitter. If your outfit is a little bit more subdued as you officially ring in 2014, make a glittery statement on your nails instead!
Julep – Shoshanna – Holographic gold glitter that I have been in love with ever since my December Julep box arrived. It’s beautiful on top of every color I’ve tried, and with a few coats you can make it a full coverage glitter.
Deborah Lippmann – I Love the Nightlife – For a little more low-key show of sparkle, try this lovely silver glitter from Deborah Lippmann (another obvious favorite brand here at Casual Concern!)
All That Shimmers
Formula X for Sephora – Grandiose – I wouldn’t call this a traditional “New Year’s Eve” color (since of course we all think of silver, champagne or bright colored sparkles) but I love how this classic red shifts to a bronze. Extra oomph to a basic red mani!
Zoya Nail Polish – Faye– Another shifting polish! I’ll also file this one under untraditional NYE colors, but there’s something so awesomely flashy about color-changing nail polish.
Butter London – Champers – Ah champagne, what millions of people will be guzzling during the first seconds of 2014. Champagne, a classic color for any occasion, but especially perfect this one!
Ciaté Paint Pots – Twilight – The product photo above does this nail polish no justice. Seriously – check out Fashion Polish’s swatches of it instead! The black and gold shimmers wonderfully in the light.
