Nails are the unsung hero of the holiday season. They sparkle in the fluorescent kitchen lighting as you stir the mashed potatoes. They take a starring role in your obligatory Thanksgiving plate pic. And they'll give your cousins something to stare at as you tell them a 37-minute-long story about the frat star who ghosted you but still watches all your Snap Stories. So, ya, you need to plan out some sickening nail art for November 25.
Just like your plate, these adorable nail designs come topped with turkey legs, whipped cream, and even a Pumpkin Spice Latte or two. If kitchy nails aren't your thing, don't worry: there's also plenty of abstract nails and minimalist fall-inspired paint jobs that will look just as good. Get tons of holiday nail ideas with these elevated, but festive Thanksgiving manicures.
