Thanksgiving Turkey Nail Art & Tutorial!

Over the weekend I had posted a picture to my Facebook & Twitter of my sister's nails that I had done. She wanted festive Thanksgiving Turkeys. I had done a post with this same nail art last year (check it out HERE), but I feel it deserved to be done again and with a tutorial! I was asked to do a tutorial of this on my Facebook page, and I was so flattered! First, check out my full set of nails, my sister's nails & finally, the tutorial! 

 For my nails, I started with a base of China Glaze Ingrid on my thumb, pointer, middle & pinky fingers. I did a base of Kleancolor Metallic Yellow on my ring finger. I then added a thin coat of China Glaze Champagne Kisses onto the nails for some sparkle. 

 Here is Ingrid & Metallic Yellow with Champagne Kisses alone. 

 For my sister's nails, I used Essie Mink Muffs for her brown base & then used China Glaze Fireside Glow for the glitter. Her gold is Kleancolor Metallic Yellow with China Glaze Angel Wings.

Now for the tutorial!
 Here are the products I used:
L-R Kleancolor Metallic Yellow (gold), China Glaze Champagne Kisses (gold glitter), China Glaze Ingrid (brown), Color Club Ho Ho Holly (green), Color Club Berry & Bright (red), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Crush (orange), ULTA Sun-Sational (yellow), Nina Ultra Pro Black, Nina Ultra Pro White

Here are the steps I used to create the turkey. The pictures are pretty self-explanatory, but I added some small text to go along with it. Click on this picture to enlarge it and have a better view!
