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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish my turkey drawing skills were this awesome, but this is a water decal.  Years ago I used decals all the time.  I have a stash I should pull out and use more often.  I picked up these Thanksgiving themed decals at one of my locally owned beauty supply stores.  The pack was $1.99.  When I got home I saw the price tag was covering another price tag.  I pulled it off and saw a tag for $7.99.  Wow; that had been hanging on their rack for a few years I guess.  I was happy to take it off their hands for a fraction of the price.  For the striped gradient I used Jordana Chiffon, Sinful Colors Nirvana and Finger Paints Sketchy Character.  The glitter is Color Club Art Club silver holographic glitter.
