2. Copper Leaf Starburst: Star light, star bright, these nails are here to steal the night. The burst of copper brings an unexpected edge to the traditional black mani. To DIY this look, slather on a coat of copper polish, cut a starburst shape into a piece of scotch tape and then paint over it with black. You can use any color combo, but the burst of copper brings an unexpected edge that鈥檚 perfect for NYE. (via The Beauty Department)
