Happy first night of Hanukkah! I can never tell how to spell it. Chanukkah, Hanukah, Hanukka…whatever. Anyway, fire! This is the earliest I can ever remember Haunkkah occurring (turns out it’s only the second time in history that the holiday has fallen over Thanksgiving! The previous was in 1888. Wikipedia has a lot of random information!).
Just like last year, I did a Haunkkah mani. However, last year I got carried away with too many things on too many nails (I do have a tendency to do that) so this year I just kept it simple! A menorah, candles, and Hanukkah (in hebrew).
This mani was inspired by the artistry of Nailed Daily. I loved the menorah idea! I also wanted something to do with Sunshine by Zoya. This navy blue textured polish looks super-glittery in the bottle, but is much more subtle on the nail. It is incredibly opaque, I probably could have gotten away with one coat! I added two very thin ones, and am happy with the result. It dried reasonably fast, and is not super-textury so has not caught on anything yet. It is a surprisingly elegant color! I don’t think I own any other “elegant” textured polishes…I tend to go for bright and glittery.
