Similar to Mirrored Manicures, linear prism nail art uses a holographic glitter nail polish to scatter light and give that unique shimmer and sort of hypnotic rainbow color.

I may have already gotten over the Voodoo Doll Nail Art Ideas from Halloween, but this one may be one of my favorites yet!

13. Turkey Accent Nails:

Turkey Accent Nails

While painting on a whole turkey on every single fingertip may be a bit too much, I love the way this nail art gets the idea without being over the edge. The accentuation of the gobbler is perfect to put anyone in a Holiday mood.

To do this, paint on an opaque white base coat take a slim-tipped nail art brush to draw leaf-like feathers on the side of your nails. A quick flick of the brush as if checking test papers should do the trick.

To make it more autumn-appropriate, choose fall colors like brown, red, and orange. This look is perfect to wear to a Thanksgiving festival!

One thing that some people enjoy and love about this time of the year is the nice night sky. Pair it with some stars, a glowing campfire, and a chilly breeze, and you’ve got yourself a relaxing, romantic atmosphere.

Both of these designs feature the stars during a November night, but one is a little more jolly and generous on the glitter while the other one is more subdued and sort of sentimental. The choice is up to you!
