Can you believe that Thanksgiving is around the corner!? You might be thinking seriously about what to wear on Thanksgiving especially if you are spending Thanksgiving with family, a significant other’s family, or if you have a big Friendsgiving coming up. I wrote my guide on what to wear on Thanksgiving (complete with 14 outfit ideas!) to give y’all some inspiration for casual and dressy holiday celebrations. Since, I’ve got outfits covered, I thought I’d move on to Thanksgiving beauty. I love a great manicure and pedicure appointment so I wanted to share my top Thanksgiving nail polish colors. A manicure is an easy way to add a little festive flare to a holiday look. So, read on for my must-have nail colors and nail brands for Thanksgiving.
Top Nail Colors For Thanksgiving
Miami Beat by OPI
I discovered Miami Beet by OPI a few autumns ago when I went on a mani pedi date with my bestie, Allison. We have both been obsessed with the polish ever since and get so excited to whip it out every fall. We both wear it on our fingers and our toes. It’s not quite red, not quite purple, not quite burgundy… it’s just right. I like to call it wine colored! In my mind, it feels less bold than a true red.
In Stitches by Essie
I love this nail polish color for Thanksgiving because it is the perfect fall take on a dusty blush pink. In Stitches by Essie also has a way of feeling like a neutral but with a little extra punch… it will take you from Thanksgiving games during the day to Thanksgiving dinner at night.
Toasted Sugar by Tom Ford
When I found Toasted Sugar by Tom Ford, it was love at first sight. This is my favorite taupe colored nail polish because of its creamy, toasty, almond tone. It’s a great subtle nail color to wear on Thanksgiving that will pull your whole outfit together.
Rouge Red by Chanel
There’s no denying it, red nail polish is glamorous. The holiday season is the time of year to indulge in a little glam so a bold red nail polish is the way to go. Rouge Red by Chanel is, without a doubt, one of the best red nail polishes in the game. If you’re feeling fiery this Thanksgiving, then look no further than this color by Chanel.
Across the Pond by Butter London
Forrest green is a staple color in my fall wardrobe so why not paint it on my nails? Across the Pond by Butter London is a bit of a different take on Thanksgiving nail polish because it’s outside the box of standard nude, red, and plum colors but it works just the same. The dark tone will shine green during the day and look almost black at night for a sleek look.
Magnetic by RMS
If you are into green, clean beauty, then you need to stock up on RMS Beauty. Easily one of my absolute favorite organic beauty brands, RMS nail polishes are all created using their 6-free formula so they kick your chemical-filled polishes butts. Magnetic by RMS is my go-to metallic color for fall because it is a metallic brown color, which feels super appropriate for the time of year and the Thanksgiving holiday.
Lady is a Tramp by Deborah Lippmann
Y’all know how much I adore burgundy, especially in the fall. I did a whole post about my burgundy style guide after all. So, a fabulous burgundy nail polish is right up my alley. Lady is a Tramp by Deborah Lippmann is burgundy at it’s finest. I love the idea of wearing a burgundy dress to thanksgiving and pairing it with a burgundy manicure.
Bleu Cobalt by Yves Saint Laurent
In recent years, the metallic trend hit runways in a major way and also struck a cord in the beauty department in the lips and eyes categories. So, it was just a matter of time before metallic nail polish took center stage. I have loved the shimmery midnight blue color of Bleu Cobalt by Yves Saint Laurent for years for a bold manicure or a great pedicure during Thanksgiving. My bottle recently ran out so I just went online to reorder and realized it is not discontinued (so sad! I did find it here but for double the cost). So, I found a few other super similar options: Midnight Cami by Essie, Blue My Mind by OPI, and La Laque Couture by Yves Saint Laurent.
Cheers to a little holiday beauty inspiration! Have a great Tuesday! xx
