Hanukkah is coming up this Saturday and I’m so excited for it– latkes, dreidels, chocolate… oh my! I’m a huge fan of the blue/white/silver color combination that represents the holiday, especially when it comes to seasonal nail art. I searched Instagram for some Hanukkah nail art ideas, and these are by far the best out there. Use them as your nail art inspiration to get festive during your next manicure!
1. This great use of negative space
This pattern is more abstract and not as in-your-face as a defined Star of David, but still gives off the Hanukkah spirit.
2. Sparkly Star
This blue and silver combo is elegant, with a design that alludes to Israel’s flag.
3. Merry Chrismakkuh
I personally grew up celebrating both holidays, so I especially appreciate this inclusive combination!
4. Eight Candles
This nail artist chose a chic black and gold color combination with the eight days of Hanukkah symbolized in the candles.
5. Snowy Stars
The chunky sparkles resemble snow against the blue base coat, and the stars are on point.
6. Geometric Glitter
Another one that’s a little less obvious, the triangular glitter overlaps to create abstract stars.
7. The Big Four
This nail art incorporates the four main symbols of Hanukkah, including a dreidel, the Star of David, a menorah and the Chai symbol for life, and of course some gift wrap!
8. Two Accent Nails are Better than One
This salon used what looks like decals to create two accent nails with festive symbols.
9. Reverse Moon
This reverse moon nail art is super festive and could be worn all winter long!
10. Classic Menorah
This artist has steady hands to draw this perfect menorah on top of matte sparkly blue polish. Gorgeous!
