Thanksgiving Needle Drag Nail Art

Purchased by Me Affiliate Links

It's Thanksgiving week in the U.S., and I have to admit this is my favorite holiday.  Good food, good company, and little stress!  Of course, no holiday is complete without a mani!

When I reviewed the IBD Just Gel Mad About Mod collection last week, it struck me that four of the colors are perfect for fall.  So I couldn't resist marbling them together for this week's mani. I used a needle drag technique with Perfectly Paisley, Go-Go Above and Beyond, I Mod You, and Happliy Brighter After (I used a striping brush, not a needle! Needles can damage your nails) .

I love how it turned out, but I felt like it needed a little something more.  So I stamped it with Maybeline Bold Gold and an image from MJ XX.  I then felt that the stamping was a little too bold, so I mixed a drop of Happliy Brighter After with a few drops of top coat to create a sheer jelly and added that over the stamping.  I feel it blended all of the colors perfectly and it gave the leaves a coppery tone.  I am completely in love with the final result!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! :)
