First Day of Hanukkah Holiday Manicure

Happy Hanukkah! This evening marks the first day of Hanukkah and I was drawn to creating a beautiful sparkly Hanukkah inspired manicure.
I used an absolutely breathtaking shimmery royal blue as the base; China Glaze's Frostbite (clearly seasonally appropriate).
This polish has such a beautiful deep colour, is extremely easy to apply, and looks marvelous with only two coats. Plus, the slightly metallic-shimmery appearance hides any nail imperfections and looks pro even without a super steady hand.
Then, I hand-painted the white candles, black wick, and yellow and white flames. And, of course, added the gold and silver sparkle accents (because I can never resist adding a touch - or a serious amount - of glitter). With the silver Star of David on the thumb nails, two hands of four candles on each makes eight! (Thinking ahead!).
