Do you remember when you were a little kid and you used to trace your hand to make a turkey? Well, since I am so incredibly creative, I translated that fun pasttime to my nails!
To be quite honest, I HATED them so much that I didn't even bother with cleanup. The brown at the tip of the nail made my nails look as though I had only really tiny nails. It just looked really, really bad so I took it off right away. Though it could have been a good idea... my selected color palette just didn't work for this look.
Here are the steps I followed for my turkey nails, in case you can think of a way to make them look amazing:
Apply 1 coat of CND Stickey top coat.
Begin by polishing on one coat of China Glaze Solar Power to each nail except the thumbs.
Next, in a ruffian pattern, layer on (freehand) OPI Hot & Spicy, OPI Don't Mess With OPI, and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys.
I added a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust so the messy lines wouldn't be as obvious.
For the thumbs, I used 3 coats of OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys.
I freehanded the eyes, beak and gobbler (what is that thing, anyway?) with a dotting tool and acrylic paint.
I finished the whole look with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.
So... do you think you can make my nails look better than I did? I'm sorry I didn't worry about the cleanup. They really did come right off because they were just that horrible. Though I have to admit, that turkey was pretty dang cute!
