5 Nail Tips For Choosing Cute Thanksgiving Nails
Here are 5 fall nail designs you can try:
1. Go For A Classic Thanksgiving Color Scheme
When it comes to choosing the perfect colors for your Thanksgiving nails, you can’t go wrong with a classic Thanksgiving palette. Think deep reds, oranges, and yellows. Not only do these colors look great together, but they also reflect the autumn leaves perfectly.
2. Get Creative With Your Nail Art
If you really want your nails to stand out this Thanksgiving, get creative with your nail art. Opt for Thanksgiving-themed designs like turkeys, pumpkins, or even burnt orange leaves. You can also go for a more subtle approach by simply painting your nails in a gradient of Thanksgiving colors.
3. Don’t Forget The Top Coat
One of the best things about semi-cured gel nails is that they often come with a built-in top coat. This means your nails will be extra glossy and chip-resistant. So, if you want your Thanksgiving nails to look their best, make sure you don’t forget the top coat!
4. Consider Your Outfit
When choosing your Thanksgiving nails, it’s also important to consider what you’ll be wearing. If you’re planning on wearing a dress or skirt, opt for a nude or light color. If you’re wearing jeans or pants, however, feel free to go for a bolder color or design.
5. Keep It Simple
Sometimes, less is more. If you’re not sure what design or color to go for, keep it simple. A classic red or nude nail is always a good choice. You can also opt for a clear coat with just a hint of glitter for a more festive look. Follow these tips, and you’re sure to find the perfect Thanksgiving nails for you!

Applying Semi-cured Gel Nails Stickers
You don’t need a professional nail artist to help apply these nails. All you need do is follow the steps below:
Prep Your Nails
Before you start, make sure your nails are clean. This involves both washing your hands and using a nail file to eliminate any rough edges. You can also use pro nail prep to ensure the gel nail stickers last longer.
Select The Gel Nail That Best Fits Your Finger Size
One of the most important steps is to make sure you select the right size gel nail for your finger. The best way to do this is by using a size chart. Once you’ve found the right size, it’s time to move on to the next step.
Apply The Gel Nail To Your Nail Bed
The next step is to apply the gel nail to your nail bed. You’ll want to start in the center of your nail and then work your way out. Once you have the gel nail in place, use a cuticle pusher to gently press it down, especially on the edges. Roughly trim off the excess gel strip from the nail tip.
Curing The Gel Nail
After you’ve applied the gel nail, it’s time to cure it. Curing is what sets the gel nail and gives it its strength. You can use UV light to cure your nails. Place your hand under the light and wait for the gel nail to harden. This can take up to 3 minutes. Once nails are cured, file the free edge of the nail tip so that there is no gel strip hanging over your natural nails.
Repeat The Process For All Nails
Once you’ve completed the process on one hand, it’s time to move on to the other hand. Repeat the process until all ten nails are done. And that’s it! You now have a perfect set of semi-cured gel nails that will last for up to 2 weeks.
Files Your Nail And Apply A Top Coat (Optional)
If you want your nails to last even longer, we recommend applying a top coat. This will help protect your nails and keeps them shiny.
How To Remove Ohora Nails
Removal is quite easy and can be done in the comfort of your own home.
Soak in Remover Solution
Soak a cotton ball in a mixture of acetone and cuticle oil and press it onto your nails. Make sure each nail is covered completely. Alternatively, you can use the ohora Easy Peel Remover. Just add a couple of drops to each nail and let it soak.
Wait A Few Minutes
Let the remover solution soak into the nails for a few minutes, then use the wooden stick provided in your semi-cured gel nail package to gently lift up the edges of the gel strip. Go slow to prevent damage. Add more solution as needed as you begin to lift.
Apply A Nourishing Cuticle Oil
Finish up by applying nourishing cuticle oil to your nails. This will help to keep them healthy and strong.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to show off your nails. With so many great designs to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect Thanksgiving nails for you. Just remember to keep it simple and have fun!
