Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”


Apply a base color of your choice, I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “White Out.”


To create the turkey, use a brown color and a detail brush to make a snow man type shape on the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush and Delta Ceramcoat’s “Spice Brown.”


Next, add some fall colored feathers around the turkeys body and head with a thin detail brush. I did these similar to the shape of leaves. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” Brush, Finger Paints’ “Tangerine Tint”, Maybelline’s “Fierce N Tangy” and Nina’s no name.


Give the turkey some eyes using a small dotting tool, the same white polish as the base (if you used a white base) and a black polish. I used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Black Out.”


Add a beak with the same orange color used for the feathers and the thin detail brush. This is an upside down triangle placed right below the eyes of the turkey.


For the next design, I simply made wisped lines coming down from the cuticles of the nails using all the same fall colors used for the feathers plus Essie’s “Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo” and Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush.


Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”


Your thanksgiving turkey nails are finished!
