Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian readers! I hope you’re spending the weekend enjoying some delicious food and fun times with your family and friends.
You might not know this about me. but I’m a vegetarian, so these nails are the closet I get to a turkey this season. They’re pretty cute and for somebody who isn’t very artistic, I think they turned out pretty well.
For the base colours I used a variety of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes. These are great for quick drying colours that are really opaque and bold. The shades I used are Sizzlin’ Saffron (yellow), Pumpkin Queen (orange), Surspice! (red), OMGhost (white), and Moracc-go (brown). I used each of these as a base for one of the nails and then layered the solid colours with a subtle gold glitter.
For the turkey nail I used Misa Nail Art Pens to make the turkey feathers. The two shades I used were 01 Crazy For Bananas for the yellow and 17 Gold Rush for the gold. Once I did a few swipes of the feathers I let that dry. Then I used an eraser on the back of a pencil, dipped in the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri brown shade to create the turkey body. When the body was dry I used a dotting tool in both black and white for the eyes, and orange for the beak.
He’s pretty cute if I do say so myself. He has a cartoon-like look and I know my little cousins will love him when I see them for Thanksgiving. This is the only nail art I’ve ever done for Thanksgiving, but now it got me pretty excited to look for more ideas for next year.
What do you guys think of these turkey nails?
