Thanksgiving Mani (Fail!)

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian nail fanatics!  This is the mani I did for the holiday; wasn't entirely thrilled with how it turned out; it seemed so much better when I had it planned in my head...but thank goodness it's only polish and a bit of remover and a new mani will be on my nails in no time!

Started with a base of two coats of Tough as Nails Lacquer Shut Your Sweet Potato Pie Hole; topped with SV.

Bottle shot.  Another polish that is the epitome of fall!  I bought this last year when I went bat crazy for fall and Halloween polishes but was only able to wear a few of them....only so many mani's you can do for fall and Halloween before the season passes as these aren't colours I'd typically wear! 

Stamped using FUN charcoal stamping polish using BM-H13 (thumb, middle and pinky) and MJ XVI (on ring and index). Just a note that if you go to use this turkey image, the image works best if scraped with a light hand and side to side.

Topped with SV.

Here's a closer look at the plates used.  



I'm not sure why I wasn't into this....I think it's mainly because the image on the middle finger is covering too much of the base, which I wanted to see more of; I wish I had have stamped it closer to the tips so more would be seen like on the thumb.  Oh well.....and can SOMEONE tell me why there is no image plate that has Happy Thanksgiving on it?  Calling all image plate makers....we need this for next year, please and thank you!  I know this was one of my wishes for plates almost from when I got into stamping and had asked for words like this to be on plates...Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, Happy Easter, Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Canada Day, etc etc....they are essential to a theme mani gal like me!  While some have since been done, there are still some (like Happy Thanksgiving) that are needed! (end rant! lol!)

Thanks for looking!


  1. I like the Turkey stamp, and I'm surprised there is no "Happy Thanksgiving" image, considering there is a cornucopia stamp!

  2. So cute!! Happy Thanksgiving :D
