Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. We all know that turkey dinner will be delicious no matter what you do with it, but if you want your guests to remember more than just the food, why not get creative with your nails? These are some of our favorite nail art designs for Thanksgiving.

1. Turkey nails

Paint your nails white and burgundy and use a dotting tool to create the feathers. Use black for the eyes, beak, legs, and feet.

Turkey nails are an easy choice that can look great if you take some time to make it fun! You could also go with simple autumnal colors like reds or orange.

Use a dotting tool for your other fingernail you’ve painted white.
