Thanksgiving is fast approaching. I have been slacking on the nail art department lately. I had been in a slump. Alas, I believe I am out of the slump. Expect some cute Christmas nails after Thanksgiving has passed.
I also, want to extend a humongous THANK YOU to everyone who has supported this blog. It’s been fun posting my nail art and recipes. I hope you all enjoy it and will continue to do so!
On to the nails!
I was inspired by this post from Ducking to Swan. Check it out!
Start off with a base coat and two coats of a brown.
Now, with a dotting tool (or bobby pin, bottom of your paint brush, or any small rounded object) add white circles on top of the black circles. Don’t cover the black completely.
Go back to your black polish, and add pupils.
Use your paint brush to add orange to the beak. Again, do not cover all the black.
There’s your completed turkey! For the other nails I, I used nail art tape to make my designs. You can always cut skinny pieces of tape for this.
Make sure your nail polish is COMPLETELY dry. Put the tape on your nails on how you would like to design them. Paint the sections orange, yellow, and red.
Immediately take off the tape to expose the brown lines.
I decided to make each nail different. I put on a flake top coat on just the red, orange, and yellow parts of the nails.
When everything is nice and dry, apply your top coat. This is the completed look!
