Thanksgiving Nail Art Challenge - Turkeys

Last day of this challenge! Today's theme is turkeys. We're a day late for actual "turkey day" now, but it's still Thanksgiving week, and I'm sure most people are still celebrating their time off for the holiday. So here it is:

Gobble gobble! I decided to draw some cartoony turkeys, instead of really realistic ones or roasted ones. I didn't make them differ, although I did sort of put the tail feather colors in random places.

As you can see, I used quite a few colors! I used Elf Nude as my base, although you can't really see it. I then started making lines for the tail feathers in various colors using nail art polishes: Blood Diamond, Abu Dhabi, Neon Yellow, and Miss Sergeant

I then free handed the turkey head and body shapes using a nail art polish in Cocoa, and dotted the eyes using Wet n Wild French White Creme and Black Creme. I also free handed a little beak in Neon Yellow and a little gobbler in Red.

They're a little silly looking, but I like them! I was tempted to make the eyes looking in different directions, so one turkey would be looking up, one would look to the side, etc. Similar to how I did the ghosts in my Pacman manicure.

I had a really fun time doing this challenge! I really got my fill of fall nail art, and now I'm yearning for the Christmas and winter nail art ideas.

  3. They are so cute!! After I took my pics and everything I thought "dang! I forgot the red thing hanging off its beak!" But it wasnt worth it lmfao!

  4. These are soooo cute! My daughter asked for turkeys for Thanksgiving but I just ended up making turkey tails (check my blog if you want to see them). I think I could manage these though next year. Thanks for the inspiration!
