Holiday time is the perfect time to sport a special manicure. This fall, spruce up your appearance with a beautiful Thanksgiving manicure. Your Thanksgiving manicure can feature solid colors, nail art, nail decals, or other special designs and nail adornments. You can get your Thanksgiving manicure done professionally at the salon, or you can create your very own Thanksgiving manicure at home.
If you would like to pain your own Thanksgiving manicure this year, make sure you have the necessary supplies – nail polish, nail polish remover, nail file, paint pens or toothpicks for detail work, and decals or nail art and adornments, if desired. Next, think about the style of Thanksgiving manicure you would like to wear. Will you go for a fashionable French manicure with a Thanksgiving accent, or would you prefer to be completely original with your own designs?
Here are a number of suggestions for creating a beautiful Thanksgiving manicure and for applying Thanksgiving nail decals.
Thanksgiving Manicure Styles and Colors
The possibilities for your Thanksgiving manicure span as far and wide as your imagination. Your own creativity can spark additional creative options for you to use when crafting a holiday manicure, so don’t be afraid to experiment. You can always remove unwanted colors and designs with nail polish remover.
As you prepare to paint your own Thanksgiving manicure, consider your options. You can take a traditional French manicure and spruce it up for the Thanksgiving holidays. You can simply go with a solid color manicure, which is timeless and very functional. You could also apply Thanksgiving nail decals for a fun twist on the traditional manicure.
