Marbled Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving! I have survived a somewhat-cross-country trip (12 hours) in a car with my boyfriend to join his family for Thanksgiving. Of course, I had to do a corresponding mani! I didn’t come out how I imagined, but I think it is serviceable.


I wanted to water marble turkey feathers, and then do a turkey head on one nail. I’m going to give this a 60% success, so not quite a fail…but my colors just would not cooperate! I tried all creme polishes, and the orange took over. I tried shimmers, fail. I mixed shimmers and cremes, and it looked great in the water, but meh on my nails. Oh well!


I re-did my middle finger. Twice. And the feathers are STILL pointing the wrong way because I was too frustrated to think about what I was doing. Enough is enough :-p



  • Light orange: Wet n’ Wild – Sunny Side Up
  • Orange: Zoya – Thandie
  • Light brown: Zoya – Dea
  • Brown: Zoya – Louise
  • Yellow: Spoiled – Mind Your Own Beeswax
  • Copper: Zoya – Penny
  • Bronze: Pure Ice – Magic
  • Gold: Zoya – Ziv


I am looking forward to some good food! Happy polishing!
