Hello everyone and Shanah Tovah! Tonight is Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year. It’s been 3 years since I have done nail art for Rosh Hashanah, so I felt it was time again! We celebrate with apples and honey, which signifies a sweet new year, so I pulled out some apple nail art!
Since one of the biggest things to eat during this holiday is apples, and it is fall of course, I wanted to do that on my nails. I actually used two colors from the last time I did apple nail art because they were perfect. Of course I went through multiple reds to figure out which was the best one. I also have to admit that I was dead set on doing a dark background and originally was looking at darker blues and greens but last minute I pulled out an old glitter and then my heart was set on it.
I really want to matte this look but I had so much cooking and matte chips easier. Maybe I will tomorrow and then I’ll update this post!
The colors used for my ???? ????????:
- Base: KBShimmer Bittersweet Symphony (3 thin coats)
- Red: Morgan Taylor Don’t Break My Corazón
- Green: Stella Chroma Fenway
- Beige: Jessica Cosmetics Phenon Extra Foam Plz!
- Brown: Zoya Foster
All I did was add some red blobs for the apples and then added the brown stem. I used the green to add a little leaf shape. Before finishing this off, I added the little off white line just give this some definition. It was really simple to do because I wasn’t going for realistic. I just wanted a vibe.
I genuinely thought this would take me over an hour to do but from start to finish it was only 35 minutes. The apples only took 25 minutes to do all 10 nails. I was totally set to do this is accent nails but after I did the two center accent nails, I realized how quick I was getting them done. I love them on all 10 nails.
