Digit-al Dozen's Holiday Week - Happy Chanukah Nail Art

Hey everyone!
Hope you are all well! My family and I are wishing all those celebrating Chanukah a very happy one. Here's my Digit-al Dozen's Holiday week mani dedicated to Chanukah. Let me tell you...nail art with Essie Beyond Cozy is not easy. It's a dense silver glitter..that dries very quickly..so it was difficult to work with. I do like the final result, though the stars are not my favorites. I'm thrilled to have these 2 Essie's they were gifted to me from one of the wonderful women from my Birthday group. Thank You! <3 And the OPI? It's one of the 3 blues I got my hands on early from the Spring 2013 collection -  Euro Centrale, see the swatches here!

 OPI...Eurso Euro, Essie Beyond Cozy, Essie Where's My Chauffeur?

 I started with 2 coats of Where's My Chauffeur (no problems with application!) and let dry. then I free handed the Star of Davids, and like I mentioned..a fast drying glittery polish is not the best choice for this, but we went with it :P I used striping tape and painted on the OPI and Essie glitter on the other fingers and I love how they turned out. I was actually copying the wrapping paper my sister used and I would have showed you...but uh...my kids destroyed it. hehehe.


 I have a mangled star here and there, otherwise, I think this was a cute one. What do you think?

And, I'll leave you with swatches of Essie Where's My Chauffeur, because, well, it's beautiful.

Have a great night everyone. Hug and kiss the ones you love, call them if they aren't nearby. I got heartbreaking news today about my best friend's mom...and well...it's just making me sad and mushy.

xo, Victoria
