Tools Needed: dotting tool, liner brush
I’m very happy with how this little turkey guy came out so let’s jump right in!
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on the Turkey nails:
1. Paint nails white until they are opaque.
2. Leaving the ring finger blank, paint on red, orange, brown and yellow dots in any pattern on the rest of the fingernails.
3A. With a liner brush, paint one red line from the middle of the nail down.
3B. Also, paint diagonal lines on the sides of the straight line.
3C. Repeat Step 3B with yellow and orange as well. Let dry.
4A. In the middle of the nail, with a brown polish, make a circle for the head followed by a larger circle underneath for its chubby belly.
4B. Add white dots and an orange beak/triangle underneath the white dots.
4C. With black polish, top of white dots with smaller black dots for eyes.
5. Finish the nail design with a fast drying top coat to make it shiny and last longer!
There are so many variations of this Turkey Manicure. You can do solid colors or stripes instead of polka dots; You can leave all the nails white and have a turkey accent nail. It’s really up to you! Gobble, gobble!
