Twinsie Tuesday: Thanksgiving

20 Nov

In the good old U.S. of A. we are celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday.  My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is the pumpkin pie.  I probably should have said something a bit more meaningful, but man, I LOVE pumpkin desserts.  Mmm… pumpkin ice cream mixed with some Heath candy bar from Coldstone Creamery.  Holy crud.  Heaven.

That said, I did a turkey mani today.  I’m sure all that talk about pumpkin made it sound like I’d some some kind of pumpkin something.  Nope.  Isn’t this little guy cute?

Not too far from my house is a petting farm of sorts where we occasionally like to go to see the animals.  You can pet and feed them.  I love the beauty of the horses, the small town feel of the cows, the crazy sounds the goats make and oh yeah, teasing the turkeys.  I love to tease the turkeys.  It’s seriously my favorite thing about visiting this farm.

My husband gets a kick out of it.  I’m easily amused I guess.  My daughter tries to join in the fun too.  Last time we went she and I both ran back and forth dragging a dried up leaf or something across the front of their pen and they all followed.  Good times.

Anyway, like my post yesterday, this mani was done in all Julep polishes.  It just happened that way.  It just so happened that all of the colors I wanted to use were available in the Julep section of my Helmer.  My base is Julep Blake (light yellow).  The rest are Vera ( soft brown), Alyson (nude), Stella (mustard-ish yellow), Parker (orange), Whitney (mauve-ish), Alma (green-ish), Brandt (black), Brigitte (white) and Molly (red).

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?  I could eat the appetizers and dessert and skip the meal all together.  The best parts are the beginning and the end.

    This is adorable! My favorite thanksgiving dish is the cranberry sauce.

    • TopCoatIt November 20, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

      I’ve never cared for cranberry sauce. I’m a firm believer that fruit and meat don’t play well together.

    You did a great job on this!

    I love mashed potatoes and sweet potato pie with MARSHMALLOWS

    • TopCoatIt November 20, 2012 at 7:51 pm #

      I love to eat the toasted marshmallows on top of sweet potatoes, but not so much for the sweet potatoes themselves. 🙂

    I love these!

  15. Chelsea November 20, 2012 at 11:42 pm #

    So cute! My favorite Thanksgiving foods are anything with potatoes and then some French silk pie for dessert!
