Hanukkah has come and gone, and we hope all of our readers had eight great nights. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out our Kveller Family Photo Album to see some great Hanukkah snapshots (and send in your own to firstname.lastname@example.org). And as our final send-off to the Festival of Lights, here’s the manicure we’ve all been waiting for: Amy Keyishian’s final night.

In case you didn’t see these great photos of our friend Amy Keyishian and her Hanukkah manicures yesterday, you can catch up with today’s fourth night photo.

You probably can’t find this offered at your local salon amongst the spa pedicure options, but one New York rabbi is setting a trend in nail couture.

You haven’t seen manicures until you’ve seen what she does with the 10 plagues at Passover!
