Three DIY New Year's Eve Nail Art Ideas

If there is one night each year to really go all-out in the glamour department, it's New Year's Eve. Sure, it's overhyped — and usually overpriced — but we can get behind any excuse to experiment with a bold beauty look. To help us ring in 2013 right, we asked our friend Fleury Rose — the U.S. Nail Ambassador for British brand Illamasqua — to teach us three DIY nail art designs that are appropriate for an all-night New Year's bash. These glittering looks will have you waving goodbye to 2012 in style!

Fleury's tip: You can make the dots different sizes by applying less pressure.
