New Year's Eve is a time to go big or go home on all things glitter, sparkle, and shine. You could put the spotlight on your hair or makeup, but for the nail art-obsessed, we have a different idea. Instead of sticking to your routine nail polish shade to ring in 2015, try a two-toned metallic confection. With hints of gold and silver, this nail art design is a confetti party at your fingertips. Best of all, the colors will act as a jewel-tone accessory for any dress you wear.

Step 1

Cleanse the nails of any dust or oil. Polish a single thin layer of Caption base coat ($12) as the foundation to your manicure. Using Caption core color in Rewind. Repeat. ($12), a silver metallic color, polish a single thin coat on the nails. Apply a second thin coat. Allow to dry.

Tip: Polish a single thin layer of Caption top coat ($12) between color layers. Allow to dry. The top coat protects the color layer from pulling up with the nail masking tape.
