Turkey, Turkey!

Well my Thanksgiving was yummy to say the least,  bit of family drama.....ya ya....

So Wednesday night, I quickly did a turkey mani...not the best but it was cute. It started lifting Thursday afternoon....

I used Revlon Carbonite as my base...and several Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's colors for feathers, and then a gold sparkle from Sinful Colors, and a brown from China Glaze, Unplugged.

I did the feathers with a small dotting tool, dragging from the tip of nail toward the cuticle....
Then the dots for the turkey body....The other fingers have feet prints and feather droppings, lol.

Gobble Gobble.....

And  a Mini Me Mani....

Hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving as well, and If your not in the US, I Hope you had a great Thursday!

Hey there. I decided I am taking a break from my 15 Week Challenge. With the holidays here, it just won't get I will pick it back up after the first of the year. Sorry.

So this Sunday we are having family pictures done. The last family picture was May of this year, and it was just a random photo, and Husband had his sunglasses on, just like in the last family picture, two years ago....this time I said no sun glasses will be near him! His reply: Well I will glare....I'd rather glare than see sunglasses. Anywho. We are all wearing Black shirts and Jeans. I haven't come up with anything for my nails yet. Any ideas? Leave them in a comment please!
