Happy thanksgiving to all my American girls out there! I had this great thanksgiving nail design idea swimming around in my head for days! My inspiration was the newspaper nails technique. My rendition was to cut out pics of favorite thanksgiving-type foods from the supermarket flyer and imprint them on my white nails. Too bad it was an epic fail! Lol! But the design is still kind of fun so I thought I’d share some pics anyway.
I scoured the Stop n Shop flyer to find and clip images of (from left to right) frenchs french fried onions, turkey, stove top stuffing, ocean spray cranberry sauce, and cool whip! Yummy!! Too bad all the words transpose backwards when using the newspaper nails technique! I knew they’d be backwards… but I thought the text would be dark enough and the logos would be recognizable enough to really stand out and look reminiscent of the foods in our thanksgiving shopping cart! Maybe the colored print from the flyers I used didn’t transfer as well as newspaper print does? I also had a hard time applying my Pure Ice polish. This greyish white polish called Super Star! happens to be the only bottle of Pure Ice that I own. Not sure if it’s just Super Star, or if all of their shades are like this… but the formula was not my fave. The consistency kinda reminded me of white-out and the skinny brush made application difficult and streaky.
Oh well! So my thanksgiving nail design fell a little flat, but i had a great holiday! Hope you all had a wonderful time with family and friends and that you didn’t have to go to work!
