Get in the Thanksgiving spirit with these 11 cool nail art ideas

With Thanksgiving here, it's time to get together with family and friends and eat drool-worthy food. And, while it may not be tradition, some of us also see the holiday as an occasion to give our nails some extra flair.

Inspired by Turkey Day and all the red, yellow, orange and brown colors that come along with it, we've rounded up our favorite Thanksgiving nail art looks. When you're not chowing down on everything from turkey to stuffing to sweet potatoes, take a few moments to give your hands some TLC.

There's sure to be a look for you that will get your fingertips in the Thanksgiving spirit.

If the thought of drawing a turkey on to your nails isn't exactly your thing, perhaps this combination of Ikat and studded nails might be more up your alley. Sometimes less is more.

Dark green is a fabulous nail color for fall. And while we'd definitely wear this rich tone by itself, we particularly like how Instagram user Marynails14 had a little bit of fun with her manicure. She used her two ring fingers as accent nails and painted them with gold sparkles along with a brown leaf on each. With a look like this, she can easily keep the polish on after Turkey Day has come and gone.

When painting the feathers on the turkey, add in some red ones using the same polish color as you did on the rest of your fingers to pull the entire look together. If you don't have white polish at home, you can always try painting the background for the turkeys a light nude color.

There's so much festivity going on with this manicure, but it all works together, thanks to the simple skin tone polish that was picked for the background. If a look like this is too daring for you, just try the leaves or the turkey. It'll still leave your nails looking ready for Thanksgiving.

Perhaps you have some orange polish stashed away from the summer, but don't know what to do it with now that we're into the colder months? This graphic design might just be your answer. This cool negative space manicure uses orange and bronze polish to create a fun festive look.

There is so much we love about this manicure! From the leaves to the stripes to the turkey, it's hard to pick our favorite part. If having to create this whole work of art overwhelms you, try just doing it on one finger.

We just can't get enough of these marbled turkey nails. Who knew Thanksgiving birds could be so glamorous? The gold background really completes this look and adds a little bit of shiny flare.

This manicure just screams "fun." The gold polish is super festive, but we particularly love the added chevron stripes in white, orange, yellow and red.

These sweater-inspired nails are on point. We love the argyle pattern that was created using Thanksgiving-esque colors, as well as the mix of chocolate brown, gold glitter and patterns. All of the colors complement each other nicely, making this a knockout manicure.

We'll admit it: We have a soft spot for anything chevron. This manicure might be the answer for any gal looking to do something fun with her nails, but nothing too over the top. If you don't have orange in your nail polish supply, try doing this same look with your favorite red.

These tribal nails are super trendy, yet also perfect for Turkey Day. We love how Instagram user Kylie. Hickson changed up her design on three of her fingers and kept the other two simple.
