Turkey season is over and it’s time to get ready for the last big party of the year, New Year’s! If you’re like anything like me, you want to finish the year with a bang (pardon the pun). I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of New Year’s is the fireworks, each year they seem to get better and better. So this NYE I want to recreate the best part of the evening in my manicure. Read on to discover the best tricks for the best fireworks inspired nails so you can impress all your friends while waiting for that ball to drop!
Dry-brush manicures are great because they don’t need any special tools or nail art skills, all you need is your favorite polish! For a fireworks themed dry-brush, I would recommend a plain base color and a couple of different brightly colored and glitter polishes for over the top. It’s more of an abstract firework look. I love how the bright colors bring out the excitement of New Year’s Fireworks!
To create a gorgeous manicure like the one above, simply use a toothpick to draw the firework. All you need is a dark base coat (navy or black would work best) and a glitter topcoat (I recommend a fine glitter top coat as this will show up better). If you have a striper brush in your nail stash and prefer to use that, it works just as well!
This trick is meant for kids to make fireworks-inspired artwork, but there’s no reason you can’t use this method on your nails! Simply use the smallest round dish-brush you have and paint different colored glitter topcoats over the bristles; then stamp the brush over your nails and voila, you have gorgeous dish-brush firework nails.
Or you could just go glitter crazy, get all the glitter top-coats you own and just layer them over each other to create the most intense firework you can!
