Happy Wednesday all!!! Hope you all are having a great day! It's snowing here, which kind of makes me happy.
As many of you know, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, so I of course had to have a festive manicure to help celebrate!! I decided to re-create last year's Turkey Nail Art since it's the most Thanksgiving-y thing I could think to do. Last year, I tried to follow Adventures in Acetone's tutorial, but failed. This year I decided to try again, and guess what, I failed again! After trying three different turkey looks, I found this tutorial by Heather from Peace, Love, and Polish and liked that turkey the best.
I'm not 100% happy with my re-creation, but it's better than having no holiday nails. I'm also not 100% happy with my photos. My light box would NOT participate with me, so I opted for the white background which turned into a dingy gray with the lighting. Maybe on Black Friday I'll go out and purchase another desk lamp.

Okay, they're kind of cute. You would think that painting a turkey would be rather easy, but honestly it is one of the hardest designs I've done. I just couldn't get the little guy to look just right or fit perfectly with all the dang feathers. Maybe if my nails were longer? I would say I'll try again next year, but honestly, I think I'm forever crossing turkeys off my list of nail art I must do!
To get my turkeys, I followed Heather's tutorial. I first drew my turkey's body and filled it in with my nail art brush. When it was dried I took my yellow polish and drew the random feathers around the little guy. I did the same with the orange, then lastly the red. I then added the details of the turkey's little face.
What do you think? Liking these turkeys? Having just as much difficulty with turkey nail art as I have?
I hope all my followers who are celebrating Thanksgiving have a very blessed holiday with their families and friends. I am so thankful for all of you who have supported me and my blogging adventures. I know that sometimes I stink at responding to blog or Instagram comments, but I read every last one of them and they put the biggest smile on my face. I never in a million years thought that this little hobby would turn into what The Little Canvas has become, and for that I am thankful. Despite the frustrations and disasticures, this blog has truly been a blessing! So again, thank you all for your support and kind words!!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!! Until next time, <3.
