Hanukkah Mani

Hanukkah is here! It’s the 3rd night and if you’re not lighting candles this week, you can still be a part of the festival of lights by channeling this fun Hanukkah-inspired half-moon mani. Choose a blue and nude shade and see my previous post here to see how to do a half moon using stickers from the drug store!




This fall, I’m really digging a berry lip. Paired with a simple eye (think tons of mascara and skip the eyeliner, like the photo above from Rebecca Minkoff’s fall 2014 runway), this bold but pretty makeup look is effortless and can transform an otherwise basic makeup day into something stunning.
