    You've got the dazzling dress, the killer heels, the perfect clutch — but your New Year's Eve ensemble isn't quite complete without the mani to match. While you could always go with something subtle, we think ringing in 2013 deserves a little more fanfare. That's why we tapped John Barrett Salon manicurist Marie Barokas to update some festive favorites with five truly original, truly chic ways to let your fingers do the talking.

    Whether you gravitate toward glitter, want an unexpected take on metallics, or prefer a hint of sparkle, you'll find plenty of inspiration in these manicure ideas. The best part: you don't need to be an artiste to re-create these looks at home. (We'll raise our glass to that!)

    So, chill the bubbly, break out the noisemakers, and get ready to let your digits shine. Because if you're counting down the seconds until the clock strikes midnight, you might as well do so on well-polished nails.
