The Digital Dozen does...Festiveness

7:00 AM

It's time for another Digit-al Dozen week of nail art! This week the theme is festiveness and/or holidays.  I spent the whole of December last year doing a nail art challenge so I've pretty much covered every aspect of Christmas!  I wanted to use this weeks challenge to branch out and do some art themed around other festive holidays. :)  So we're starting today with what is obviously a Jewish themed manicure.  This is my take on a dreidel. For those of you who are unfamiliar with a dreidel, it's a spinning top that is played with during Hanukkah. On each side of the top is painted a Hebrew letter and together the letters make up the phrase "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham" which translates into "A Great Miracle Happened There".   The letters are Nun, Gimel, Hei and Shin.  It's sort of tricky making the letters so I hope I've done them some justice!! Anyway you spin the top and depending on what letter is up you either get the pot, add to the pot, get half the pot, or do nothing.  For my dreidel I used China Glaze Blue Years Eve and Icicle. I hope you like it!:)  

Don't forget to check out what the other girls came up with for today!

  3. Just visiting your blog via manicurator. Love what you did. Just had to let you know that the letters on the dreidel actually mean "a great miracle happened THERE" as in Israel. In Israel, the dreidels say "nes gadol hayam po" which means "a great miracle happened HERE."
