For thanksgiving 2011, I decided to paint a turkey! It was actually quite easy...I just forgot to clean up the sides before taking the pictures.
I started out by painting my nail a bright red. Then used a brown to paint the body. I did this my making 3 large dots and then blending them together. Then I used a dotting tool to make the eyes and mouth. I finished it off by using a nail art brush to make the gold streaks.
I couldn't figure out what to do with the other nails so I just made leaf-like things and used the same brown as the turkey's body for the base coat, and the art brush for the gold leaf outline.
