Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers!! Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK we've got totally swept up with all the fun nail designs and decided to get in on the action. This design was inspired by @deva_nailbar/@missjenfabulous (the turkey) and Sammy from The Nailasaurus. I tried Sammy's signature waterfall design but think I need a little (aka A LOT) more practice!

I used a ton of colours to create this little guy and his surroundings. The base is Models Own - Coconut, the yellow is Maybelline - Electric Yellow, the orange is Rimmel - Oragasm* and the rest are Barry M - Almond*, Gold Foil, Cocoa* and Blood Orange. 

I mostly used a small brush for the design, but did use a couple of nail art pens for the turkey's little face. I feel a bit bad for him as it's traditional to eat a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving and he looks like he knows something's up...

Despite living in the US for three years I know very little about Thanksgiving traditions. Although, in my defence, I was only three when we came back to the London! We'd love to hear from our US based readers what the Thanksgiving holiday means to you now and what you've been doing to celebrate this year? We love any excuse for a party!
