Thanksgiving Day Mani

I'm not sure what it is about Thanksgiving that makes me gravitate toward my Sally Hansen limited edition polishes, but last Thanksgiving I rocked a tri-colored mani using the brown polishes from the Sally Hansen Tracy Reese Fall 2010 collection, and this year I was drawn to them again. I guess I just love rich browns and earthtones for Thanksgiving. BUT, this year I wanted to jazz it up a bit and add some sparkle, so I grabbed my new OPI Warm & Fozzie and my Wet n Wild Cougar Attack and decided to do a fun polka dot mani.

Note: you don't need a fancy dotting tool to make polka dots on your nails--check out this post where I show you that a simple bamboo kebab skewer works just fine. You can pick up a bag of 100 for a buck at the dollar store and you only need three for this look, which will set you back just three cents!

Left to right: Sally Hansen Touch of Mink, Sally Hansen Fedora, OPI Warm & Fozzie, Wet n Wild Cougar Attack

I started with a base of two coats of Touch of Mink and then, after that dried, I did my polka dots in Fedora first. I let that dry and then added my polka dots in Warm & Fozzie. After that dried, I did my polka dots in Cougar Attack. When that was dry, I added a layer of Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat and I was good to go!

I actually love this mani. I think it's fun and festive while still keeping to the traditional colors that are the signature of this time of year.

What are you rocking on your nails this week?

  1. That is gorgeous! Love the color combo!

  2. I just painted my nails with Orly Rockin Rockette, which is nearly identical to Maybelline's Autumn Leaves! Gorge :)

  3. I love this! And I especially love the fact that you used Fedora, one of my all time favorite Sally Hansen polishes ever (which says a lot, because I think there are close to a million SH polishes floating around out there). Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

  4. I absolutely love this!
    *Needs these colors just to do this!*

  5. Very festive but still understated and classy!

  6. I've got illamasqua scarab on my tips with nars desperado on the ends and butter London tart with a heart on top. Looks a bit jewel encrusted.

  7. These colors are so pretty! Very classy :)

  8. This is SUPER cute! I love all the colors together.

  9. LOVE thia mani! I had China Glaze Ingrid on earlier this week and OPI Warm & Fozzie for Thanksgiving day! ;)

  10. I like this a lot -- my head is hurting from all the possibilities you're giving me! LOL
