KBShimmer Shamash Hit Polish

Many know that the story of Hanukkah is based on the miracle of eternal light. Oil for one day somehow was able to burn for eight days! As many of us are short on miracles these days, we’re kind of excited that this glittery nail polish is named after the Shamash, a candle lit on the menorah to celebrate that jar of oil. This golden color has notes of peach, orange, and copper, making it a perfect holiday shade.
