Blue Tortoiseshell

Week of blue! Hanukkah started last night, so I figured it would try and post mostly blue manicures this week! I only made one really Jewish themed mani, since I figured there was no way I could top last year‘s menorah nail art.


Up today, we have a simple blue tortoiseshell design! I actually used this as a base for some nail art that you’ll see in a week or two. The design was created by dabbing tiny pieces of a makeup sponge in color, and then onto my nail.


I used a whole bunch of blues, most of them Zoya! Which is fundamentally unsurprising. I am really curious to see what New Years sale Zoya will have this year….I am really really hoping for a 4-for-$16 deal (since a 3-for-$16 deal is really not that exciting).


~ Light blue: Zoya – Yummy
~ Teal blue: Maybelline – Shocking Seas
~ Medium blue: Zoya – Ling
~ Dark blue: Zoya – Sia
~ Darkest blue: Zoya – Ibiza


Happy Hanukkah! Go eat latkes and be happy 😀
