Thanksgiving Nail-Art Designs That You'll Actually Want to Wear

Thanksgiving is a great holiday for surrounding yourself with friends and family, eating a delicious meal, and finally rewatching all those festive "Friends" episodes, all while reflecting on what you've been thankful for this year. Some may be grateful for those delicious dishes that come with the holiday season or the time taken to slow down and treat yourself to much-needed pampering. It may sound corny, but one of the things we're most grateful for is our ability to express ourselves with fall nail art, especially when it comes to Thanksgiving nails. The time we set aside to get a new manicure, especially around holidays like Thanksgiving, is the ultimate self-care task.
