Once you’ve put the confetti on, go over the middle finger with another clear coat.

Then, while it is still wet, apply even more confetti and apply a clear top coat again.

Finally, paint the nails on your other hand, and you’re done!

Here we have the finished nails. They are so glam, so extravagant, and so perfect for New Year's Eve.

I love how each of the nails has a different design, but they are all coordinated with one another.

I haven’t shown you a thumb design, but you could replicate one of the nail designs on your thumb or create another similar design that builds on the same theme.
