Creative musings in bright colors

Magen David

Today you guys get my only holiday-appropriate mani! Happy Hanukkah! This was more complicated than it needed to be, since I had to pull out all the diamond glitters from the polish and then place them.

I started with one coat of Midnight Swim on all my nails, since it is both super-saturated and a rather nice color! All the nails but my accent nails then got two coats of Turbulence, which remains my favorite polish ever. Seriously. If you like glitter polishes, buy this!!!

While Turbulence was drying, I hand-picked some of the diamond glitters out of the polish and wiped them on a paper towel before sticking them onto my nail in a Star of David pattern (that’s what Magen David means- star/shield of David). That was not exciting enough, so I added some other glitters and then outlined the star in silver!

  2. Very nice. That polish is so perfect, once you manage to wrangle all the glitter.
