Turkey Trot and Thanksgiving Nail Art with Zoya Sensual

Press Sample

Happy hump day, dear readers, or at least what is left of it! I created a cute turkey inspired nail art look for my six-year old's Turkey Trot earlier today and Thanksgiving tomorrow. The weather has finally dropped below 70° here (barely), and my nude nail polishes from Zoya's Sensual Collection were in need of some more love. Check out my nail art look!

To create the look, I started off with Zoya shades Joss and Kinsley. I then used Zoya Foster to create my turkeys. I have the Thanksgiving stamping plate L001 from Born Pretty Store, and selected the running pattern to really get into the Turkey Trot mode. The images on this plate in general aren't very well etched, and this one was particularly bad, even with dedicated stamping polishes, but I was pretty happy with how these turned out.

My original image did include hearts, but I opted to remove them prior to stamping. Instead, I used hearts from the Love stamping Plate by Color Club with Zoya Rashida to add in my hearts.

As much as I liked this collection, it was lacking an orange and a green, so I pulled in other products for my little pumpkin. I started off by placing Pumpkin Stencils by What's Up Nails on my nail and filling in the open areas with Essie Say It Ain't Soho and KBShimmer Having A Gourd Time. I finished off my nails by topping off with KBShimmer's new 5-free Free & Clear Quick Dry Top Coat.

It's pretty unusual for me to stick with nudes when it comes to nail art looks, but I actually enjoy the way this turned out! It's subtle but fun, and my son was so excited that his school run inspired my nails. He even had to point my nails out to his friends when I arrived for the run!

After not doing much nail art lately, I was reminded how much I enjoy doing it. I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions, but creating nail art more frequently just might have to go on my list!

Are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Will you be eating a traditional turkey dinner or something different? We're actually doing shrimp and fish tacos tomorrow with grilled corn and I am excited!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful night, and for those celebrating, have a great Thanksgiving Day!

  1. Such a cute little running turkey! I run a turkey trot with my family every year (4 years now). We did traditional Thanksgiving but shrimp tacos sound great!

  2. So delicate, I love it! That little pumpkin is perfect :)
