Pull out your stretchy pants that you definitely didn’t live in for all of 2020 – Thanksgiving is on the horizon! And there’s no better way to distract your family from trying to marry you off to their friend’s second cousin’s neighbor than with some stellar Thanksgiving nail designs.
Holiday-themed nails are a great way to get yourself into the festive spirit. Whether you want a literal cornucopia painted onto your nails, or an abstract Thanksgiving-colored nail design, these manicure ideas are enough to make your Aunt Ethel finally stop asking when you’re going to dye your hair back to a “normal color.”
14 Thanksgiving Nail Designs That Are Better Than Stuffing
1. Thanksgiving Dinner Nails
With each nail featuring its own delectable Thanksgiving dish, it’s a great non-verbal way to say you need more gravy, stat.
2. Glittery Nails
These glittery nails featuring the fall foliage colors of orange and red will make you wish you were at a Thanksgiving rave instead of hanging out at the bar with half of your graduating class.
3. Turkey Day Nails
Bored making small talk with the adults? Head to the kids table and perform a nail puppet show. Mr. Turkey has been waiting for his big break all year! Oh, wait it turns out they don’t want to hear your comedy routine either.
4. Leaf Accent Nails
These fall leaves are almost as good as the real thing. Now all you need is someone to check you for ticks.
5. Tiny Turkey Nails
Honey, we shrunk the…turkey? At least the shrink machine gave him a cute little top hat.
6. Fall Animal Nails
A llama’s second favorite holiday is actually Thanksgiving. Their first is No Pants Day.
7. Thanksgiving Animals
What does the fox say? “More pumpkin. Now.”
8. Harvest Nails
This Thanksgiving nail design will make you extra thankful that you don’t actually have to harvest your own food. That’s why we send our assistant to Whole Foods for us!
9. Thanksgiving Abstract Nails
We’d say this manicure is simple enough that your five-year-old cousin could paint them, but their Paw Patrol coloring book says otherwise.
10. Pumpkin Pie Nails
Pay tribute to the true main course of any Thanksgiving spread: pie! Extra pumpkin, please. We’re trying to eat more vegetables.
11. Fall Woods Nails
If you don’t want to take an actual autumnal walk through the woods to work up an appetite before the big meal, just paint some trees on your nails. You do remember what trees look like, right?
12. Autumn Nails
These nails say, yes, I have also forgotten what the sun looks like.
13. Pilgrim Nails
If a turkey says “gobble gobble” and no one is around to hear it, he’s probably surviving another year.
14. Autumn Leaf Nails
These artistic leaf designs say, “I’ve seen leaves on the ground before, but I’ve never actually raked them.”
