Festive Nail Ideas For All Occasions by Miss Polish

No party outfit is complete without the perfect mani to match. To give you some inspiration for your next celebration, we have collected our personal favourite nail designs for each occasion to help you polish off your final look. 

Birthdays (General)

Confetti and glitter are party staples, making them a great choice to star on your celebratory mani. Draw on some confetti on top of a base colour of your choice if you’re a pro but if you’re looking for an easier option, a little (or a lot) of glitter on a light coloured layer of polish will go a long way.



Birthdays (Themed)

Themes are a great way to make a birthday bash all the more memorable. But sometimes finding the perfect nails to match can be daunting as the options are seemingly limitless. To help streamline the process, here are our favourite nail designs for various popular party themes: 








Rock 'N Roll





Black Tie Events

Add red under your nails to match your new Louboutins or deep or shallow triangles to a dark shade to add some drama to your look.  After all, a polished look for a classy night out wouldn’t be complete without perfectly polished nails.



Hens Night

Whether you’re the bride to be and it’s the last night you’re able to show off your engagement ring or one of her best mates hoping to send her off into married life in style, a celebratory mani is a must. Pink and glitter are tried and tested favourites, and like every other thing about hen’s parties, its best not to mess with tradition.



Baby Showers/Baby’s first birthdays

Whether you’re a mom, a mom-to-be or a mere party guest, get into the spirit of the occasion by dressing up your digits in baby pinks and baby blues to celebrate the new bundle of joy!
