More really is more.

Whether you're a 'stay at home with a cool glass of champers watching the annual countdown' kind of gal, or a 'going out out grab as many sequins as you can and wear them all at once' type of woman, New Year's eve is the ideal time to try a little OTT nail art. 

From all over holographic glitter, to metallic French tips, and even the odd crystal chandelier adornment or two, these are the New Year's eve nail art ideas giving Kira Kira a run for its money. 

Because more is more and less is bore. Fact.
