If you're up for something cool and futuristic, this manicure style is the way to go. Its clear on the top and solid pastel at the nail bed. This style is great if you have an almond-shaped nail. We love the combination that famous nail stylist Holly Falcone has created with this one.

Add some spice to your fingertips (not literally, of course) with this hot flash manicure. Another masterpiece created by the famous manicurist Holly Falcone. You can also create this look by adding a pastel base coat and topping it up with a vertical line across the middle of your nail. We're certainly trying this look for our NYE party!

Oooh! A fun spin on your regular green nail paints, this slime jelly manicure is a great way to experiment with nail art. You'll of course, have to get clear gel nails as a base. And the your manicurist will build on it with a clear slime jelly colour, whilst maintaining its transparency. You can get an opaque consistency with acrylic as well. 

4. Keeping It Simple

If you're more of a simple pastel, neutral kind of gal, this manicure is perfect for you. You'll need a clean pastel pink or neutral cream base coat and top it up with a white line with the cherry on the top being that of a crystal. We're digging the light pink and if you want a similar one, the colour Ballet Slippers by Essie is a good match. 

5. Va Va Voom

You can never really go wrong with red. Whether you opt for an all red nail paint or with a design over it, it'll always stand out. We're digging this style especially because of the glitter-lined neutral moon shape at the nail bed.

You can easily create this look at home by cutting a small moon-shaped piece of paper and placing it over the nail bed, as you paint the rest of your nail red. Or, you can use free hand to create this design and hide any imperfections with a glitter line. 

6. Green Is The New Black

Green has quite a hit colour when it comes to holiday, so why should your new year's eve party be any different. This design in particular is one of the most sought after new years nail color ideas.

Thanks to its complex yet simplistic look, many Singaporeans prefer this look that can be achieves on shorter or long nails. The award-winning Manicurious at Beach Road in Singapore created this head-turning look, which we would highly recommend you try as well.

Metallics have played a huge role this year. Whether it was on runway, in clothes, accessories or shoes, it was everywhere in 2018. So why not bring the glitter party onto your fingertips as well. W

e recommend this combination of red and gold glitter that's not too out there and yet festive at the same time. Just two coats and you're good to go with one of the most in-demand new years nail color ideas.

2018 was also the year of love and its only fair to add a little to your fingertips. If you love text-based nail art, this is simple, elegant, and certainly filled with love. You can achieve this look at home too. You'll need a neutral base coat and a glitter nail paint. Post the base coat, you can create this text using a thin brush. It's upto you if you'd like a star or omit it altogether.

Designer tips have been all the rage this year as well. You can try these with any of your favourite bran names. This style in particular has the Tommy Hilfiger colours.

You can even try the Fendi, Louis Vuitton or Chanel or Dior logos. There is certainly a lot to choose. The good thing about this particular design is that you can create it at home and it's one of the hottest-selling new years nail color ideas.

Animal print has been huge this year and there is no reason it shouldn't be on your fingertips. Take inspiration from this design and ask your manicurist to create a similar look this NYE party. You can try a similar design with either just animal print tips or the whole nail bed with an animal print. Either way, its certainly one of the most sought after new years nail color ideas.
