The Standout Manicures Trending This Party Season

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / December 12 2019

Party season (and all of its festive frivolities!) is now well and truly upon us. And, with all of these exciting events on the horizon, of course, you’ll need a fun new manicure to match. Below, we’ve compiled all our favourite fresh nail inspo of now to get you through from the office Christmas party to New Year's Eve, and every event between and beyond.

Confetti explosion

What could be more party-perfect than a confetti-inspired manicure? Go for spots in metallic or neutral tones to keep your mani looking cheerful but still chic.

All-out glitter

Be the life of the party with a glitzy glitter manicure. Sparkly nails are guaranteed to be a showstopper and there’s so many colours you can choose from. We love classic go-with-anything silver but you could experiment with bright colours, too.
