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.

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.
