Thanksgiving is not my favorite time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love the actual holiday, it’s just that the end of November is kind of a sad and depressing season. Of course, the only proper way to deal with the blues is a gorgeous gel polish manicure. Add a cute little turkey and I’ve got something to make me smile every time I look at my hand.
The base is IBD Jungle Fever. I did the glitter fade with IBD All That Glitters. The ring finger has one coat of IBD All That Glitters over the whole finger. The turkey is IBD Jungle Fever. The eyes are IBD Whipped Cream and IBD Black Lava. The yellow is IBD Rocco. See all of the swatches for these colors in my Swatch Gallery. I created the red and orange by mixing IBD Rocco, Sally Hansen Wine Not, and IBD Whipped Cream. I really need to get a good orange in my collection since I don’t have a single one yet. Do you have any suggestions? It doesn’t have to be IBD. 🙂
I used my Wistonia brushes and my dotting tools to make the turkey. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it did take some time. I really liked this manicure, so I guess it worked as a tool against my end of November blues. I’ll admit, the turkey on my right hand is not as cute as the one on my left, but since you can only see the one on my left hand, we can just pretend they both look amazing. Haha!
