Whether you’re prepping six months in advance or the day before, these Hanukkah nail designs will help you get in the spirit. Who, us? Procrastinate? Never!
In 2022, Hanukkah starts on December 18 and goes until December 26. To distract us from the unceasing thoughts of all the latkes and sufganiyot we’re about to consume, we went searching for cool nail art instead. These looks include menorah art, dreidel designs, candles, stars, and more.
Now, we can’t stop thinking about how cute our nails are going to look while we chow down. Can Hanukkah just start now?
17 Gorgeous Hanukkah Nail Designs
1. Dark Blue Hanukkah Designs
At least you’ll still look cool when you lose the dreidel game. As opposed to looking hot. We passed the color theory test in high school art class.
2. Blue and Silver Nails
Don’t want nails that scream Hanukkah? Whisper it with these understated nails instead.
3. Shimmery Blue Stiletto Nails
Everyone will challah at ya with these stiletto nails. Even that guy from Tinder who ghosted you three months ago. Too little, too late – we just finished the loaf.
4. Star of David Nails
Wrap it before you tap it. You want to wrap your nails with these stickers before you tap them on the table, or else everyone will see your naked hands. What did you think we meant?
5. Blue and White Marble Nails
If we paint night skies on our nails, does that mean we get to open our presents earlier?
6. Almond-Shaped French Tips
All eyes will be on you when you light the menorah in these 3D nails. Just don’t drop the candle. Then all eyes will be on your burning table instead. Whoops.
7. Menorah Candle Nails
Hanukkah was so lit this year that we lost 50 percent of our nails. Luckily, it’s the less crucial half.
8. Blue Nails With Abstract Gold and Silver Candles
Hanukkah, but make it abstract…and much easier for us to copy. We may have passed color theory, but the rest of art class was rough.
9. Mismatched Hanukkah Nails
Can’t decide what to paint on your short nails? With these, you don’t have to choose. You’re an adult and you can do what you want!
Like eating an entire bag of chocolate coins for lunch. And dinner. And then suffering the consequences: now you have none for tomorrow.
10. Blue and Gold Star Nails
Add some star decals to your nails for a fun 3D look. But why stop there? You have a whole house to decorate! Hey, when did our house lose a dimension?
11. Press On Hanukkah Nails
Picture this: you finally won the dreidel game. Just don’t spend all your gelt in one place. Spend it on something necessary, like these press-on nails. Or a yarmulke for your cat.
12. Blue and Silver Stripe Nails
If you’re wondering how much glitter is too much glitter, then you’ve crossed the line and it’s too late. Our shower still hasn’t recovered from Coachella. Luckily, this subtle Hanukkah nail design has just the right amount.
13. Hanukkah Sweater Nails
Hey, nails get cold too! Especially in those fingerless gloves. But it’s worth it to show off this cute manicure, that you definitely didn’t spend a four-hour lunch break to complete.
14. Marbled Nails With Star of David Accents
Steal the show with these cool marbled nails in Hanukkah colors. It’s a tall order to steal the show away from the matzo ball soup, but stranger things have happened.
15. Glittery Blue Nails With Striped Tips
If Christmas and Hanukkah had a baby, it just might be these nails. Introducing: Chrismukkah.
16. Blue Nails With Gold Flake Accent Nail
Whip out the trusty gold flake for this cool nail design. What do you mean you don’t have gold flake?
17. Blue Swirls With Gold Stars
A great miracle occurred on these nails. Seriously. We ran out of blue polish, but it still worked out to be a vibe!
