A glittery dress isn't the only way to make a statement for the upcoming holiday. These nine over-the-top New Year's Eve nail tutorials are so extra that you'll be heading into 2018 making a serious statement. Yes, you can have a mani as bright as the ball that's dropping. Because a little bit of polish goes a long way.

If there's a time to be a little extra, it's to ring in the new year. While there are tons on minimalist nail art out there, some people would rather go bold. After a year filled with trends like wavy eyebrows, nose hair extensions, and even snow globe holiday nails, it only makes sense to finish off 2017 in the same way.

Whether you're looking to go 2D with glitter and fun designs or glue some accessories on, there's inspiration out there for you. YouTube has been coming up with New Year's nail art since, well, the beginning of the platform and each one gets better every single year. To no surprise, the most over-the-top ones are coming this year.
