After the preparation for Christmas family meetups and parties, it’s time sort out the festive outfits and experiment with party looks for the New Year’s Eve Party! This probably has to be one of the favourite parties of the year: it’s an all-night long celebration, where we all get the opportunity to pull out our craziest, most fun outfits and say goodbye to the past year.
Even during a party, fashion details count a lot: whether it’s about your nails, rings or highlighter, don’t forget to ensure every part of your look is on point. This way, you will not only look great, but also feel more confident in your appearance.
Our Nail Art Tips:
Dark mattes, especially for the winter season, are just perfect. Matte nails are dramatic and bold, they almost look like jewellery. For the New Year’s Eve party, try out something dark, such as burgundy, royal blue, dark purple or green, because these velvety, matte textures look the best with dark colours. If you want to experiment with various colours but don’t want to spend a fortune on only matte polishes, buy a mattifying top coat, which will turn any shade into matte.
Say goodbye to the regular French manicure and switch it up with vibrant shades such as orange, yellow and green! The technique is the same, the only thing that has changed is the colour palette. If you prefer the classic French manicure, try it out with a chic, minimalist black tip instead of the regular white.
For more subtle dresses, spice up your nails with the help of metallic nail stickers or a metal finish nail polish. You don’t have to stick with the regular shades such as silver, rose gold and gold – try out bronze, dark blue and rust nail polish. These polishes will create a metallic foil effect on your nails, leaving them super shiny. You can also create metallic decor to a regular nail polish to tone things down a bit.
If you can’t wait for spring and summer, express it with your nail art! Pastel shades such as powder pink, baby blue, mint and light yellow go well with monochrome and glitter outfits, especially if they have some print, for example dots, stripes or floral stickers. For the upcoming party, you can add a glitter French tip or a crystal pattern to it.
All That Sparkles
From pearls and sequin to beads and glitter, anything that sparkles can be a good choice for the upcoming party, especially with pastel nails. No matter if it’s on your ring, nails, skirt, jacket or clutch…and who says you can’t mix them together and feature a piece on more of your clothing items?
We know, they are not the most comfortable things, but heels are definitely women’s best friends. They make the legs appear longer and can make an outfit a hundred times more elegant, feminine and daring. For New Year’s Eve, pull out that outrageous pair you were always afraid to wear, practice your walk and hit the streets in them on the 31th!
When in doubt, always go minimalist. Geometric prints, whether they are in mesh, leather or velvet are small, yet stunning touches to clothing items. They look amazing with a midi skirt or with a pencil skirt, and you can always add geometric details to your accessories as well, such as your clutch or jewellery.
Last Minute Finishing Touches:
Glitter Roots – If you want something crazy and fun, try to sprinkle temporary glitter hair dye to the roots of your hair. This controversial and modern trend is something we wouldn’t recommend for everyday life, but if you love experimenting with trends, why not give it a try?
White Smile – Of course, we can’t leave this off our list. White, healthy and strong teeth will make you look more confident and you won’t have to worry about red wine stains. Try some at home teeth whitening strips to increase the gleam.
Shimmering Oil –Nourish your body and add an extra hint of shimmer with shimmering dry oil. Instead of large chunks of glitter, try to find something that has tiny little shimmers which reflect the light.
Emergency Kit – Always have a small makeup bag in your purse with the essentials such as concealer, blotting paper, lipstick and a travel size eye shadow brush. While the blotting paper and the concealer will help you with your complexion, you will be able to handle any eye shadow fallout with the brush.
