5 perfect shades for a last-minute Thanksgiving mani!

If (like us) you have been completely manic these past few weeks with work, class or just life in general you may have forgotten about Thanksgiving this week. We can’t help with last-minute turkey tips, but we can recommend our five favorite shades for a last-minute Thanksgiving mani guaranteed to make any party host look fabulous!

  1. Dior Vernis Gel Shine and Long Wear Nail Lacquer- ‘Wonderful’
    Dior 'Wonderful'
    This red with a subtle sparkle is the perfect shade for fall and will match your Autumnal Thanksgiving décor perfectly! It is on the pricey side at $27 a bottle, but the high quality of this polish and the gorgeous shade make it a staple for any polishaholic’s collection.
  2. Sephora Formula X- ‘Alchemy II’
    This gorgeous rose-gold glitter polish is amazing! It has extremely fine flecks of mainly red, brown and rose gold glitter with some blue and purple to make your nails a magical glitter shade. For any adults who love a bit of glitter (aka the entire Pedicure team) this polish is an absolute must! It’s already in our Sephora basket.
  3. Essie- ‘Shall we Chalet?’

    A gorgeous ruby red, perfect for the host of any Thanksgiving party who wants to look put together and not let their guests know they are majorly stressing over the pecan pie. It’s a staple red, you cannot go wrong!
  4. Nails Inc. – ‘Snow Globe’

    This gold glitter top coat can be combined with any of the other colors on the list, or just applied to bare nails for that minimal party look. The gold glitter is perfect for your festivities and will put you in the mood to party.
  5. Dior- ‘Nail Glow’

    This almost clear coat is for those who don’t want to commit to a full manicure, or who just don’t have the time. This will add a gloss to your otherwise bare nails, making them look healthy and leaving your guests wondering how your naked nails look so good.


Let us know what your Thanksgiving manis look like and send them through to our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. We’ll be sure to check them out between the turkey and pies on Thursday.
