2020 has truly been a year like no other. New Year’s (socially distanced) celebrations can’t come soon enough and we’ll be waving goodbye to 2020 with a glass of bubbly in hand and the biggest smile on our faces. It’s nearly time to close the door on a year that has changed our lives indefinitely. 

Despite everything, this year gave us more time than ever to spend on ourselves and practice some much-needed self-care. And, speaking of self-care, what better way to see in the new year than with a fresh set of nails that make you feel fabulous.

Here are 5 unique New Year’s nail designs from our talented Beauty Pros. With these, you’ll feel glam however you plan to celebrate. After all, whatever challenges 2021 may bring, at least your nails will be on point, right?


Our 5 Fave New Year’s Nail Designs 


1. Cherry Ripe – @anouskaanastasia

To say the y2k era has made a comeback this year would be a massive understatement! Maybe it’s nostalgia for a simpler time but if you’ve caught the noughties bug like us and found your closet full of old-school colourful pieces, then these nails will be the cherry on top – quite literally. Anouska has transformed this simple French manicure by sticking on the cutest 3D cherry jewels that will give you that super cool ‘e-girl’ vibe. Pair your nails with some statement rings just like Anouska has to really finish off your look.

2. Press Ons But Make Them Butterfly – @jellykellynails

These colourful butterflies on top of a pinky-nude nail are the perfect way to brighten up any cold January night and make a splash on New Year’s Eve. The best thing about them? You don’t even have to go to a salon – they’re press on nails! We love the detail on these and they’re a super-cute design to pair with that new year’s little black dress you’ve been saving all year. Or, if you prefer a cosy night-in, just sit back, relax and admire your nails as you binge Netflix. We know this is quite a summery look but quite frankly, we are craving some Vitamin D and cannot WAIT for summer. Bring the good vibes early and treat yourself to this design.

3. Skies In Our Eyes – @Sadiejnails

The dreamy colour palette of this ethereal cloud design by Sadie is to die for. We can assure you that no one else will have the same nail design as you and you’ll get tonnes of compliments from everyone in your bubble. To make a statement with your New Year’s look, pair these gorgeous nails with a sleek white dress. This design is far too complex for nail art beginners so it’s a good job they’re actually press ons and you can order them straight from Sadie on the Beautystack app!

4. Nudes For Nails – @izabellebellamy


If bold and brightly coloured nails are not your thing and you prefer to keep it low-key, then stick to nude. This stylish brown and beige French-manicure by Izabelle is perfectly on-trend for this Autumn/Winter season.  Neutrals are everywhere right now, from jeans to blazers. If this is your vibe, then make sure you have the New Year’s nails to match.  Once NYE celebrations are over, this style is also subtle enough to look classy in your first 2021 business meetings – whether they be on Zoom or socially distanced, you’ll be colour-coordinated and looking like a total boss.

5. Pink Marble Life by @808nails

This minimalist marble print is the definition of classy. We’re totally loving the understated yet detailed nail-art by @808.nails. The baby pink gives it that little bit of wow factor but it’s light enough to pair with any colour, no matter what your New Year’s outfit is. You won’t be able to help yourself when it comes to showing off your banging New Year’s nail design.
