How to do a marble turkey nail art?

  1. After base coat, apply one coat of an opaque gold polish and let it dry.
  2. Starting about halfway down your nail, apply a generous amount of an orange polish scalloping the edge to look like feathers.
  3. Make a thin curve using a generous amount of light orange polish following the border of the dark orange.
  4. Quickly grab a thin brush and with very little pressure drag the dark orange through the light orange.
