This past year I got really into nail art and I love to do cute things for the holidays. After looking for inspiration on Thanksgiving themed nails, I came across one that I really liked and did my own twist on it.
So they are not perfect but, hey, I am still new to this nail art thing. I really like the nails and the most complicated part of it was the detail on the pilgrim’s hat.
For this nail design I preped my nails with my Formula X Nail Cleaner and Nail Primer.
For the pilgrim’s hat nail I applied Satin Ribbon by Pure Ice all over the nail. For the hat I used Black Out by Pure Ice and, lastly, for the detail I used Passion by China Glaze. I did the buckle with a small dotting tool. I first tried using a small brush but the dotting tool was way easier.
On the other nails I used Cinna-Snap by Sally Hansen.
On my middle finger I used the bigger glitter chunks from Summit of Style by Essie which is the polish picture above. I picked up the chunks with a dotting tool. At times it got a bit complicated to pick up the chunks so I dipped my dotting tool in a bit of clear coat.
To finish my nails I applied a clear coat and I tried my best to clean up the edges.
I hope you like this nail design as much as I do.
How are your nails going to be painted for Thanksgiving?
