Ways to celebrate Friday the 13th

This is the second month in a row this year to have a Friday the 13th. We here at Patterned are not superstitious types, but rather we take this as a reason to have some fun! Many people are plagued by Paraskevidekatriaphobia – the fear of Friday the 13th – and won’t be going out today as a result. So if you’re going to stay home anyway, you may as well have a little fun, right?

It’s Friday, hooray! With the holiday season fast approaching, we thought it might be fun to show our spirit all the way down to the tips of our fingers. Who’s with us?

Here are some tips for your fingertips this holiday season:

  1. Go with warm neutrals. From taupe to espresso, any shade of brown will look fantastic on your nails this season. This is a classic and simple look for those of us who don’t have the time or the inclination to spend 2 hours doing a manicure. For a twist on this look, add a bit of sparkly glitter polish just to the tips, nail beds, or one accent nail. Find this look here, here, and here.
  2. Turkey Time! If you’re really inspired, add a painted turkey to one or all of your nails. This look takes a bit more time to pull off, but the effect is adorable. For a great example, click here, here, and (for a Minion-takeover version) here.
  3. Falling for Leaves. If you want to go with the season but not necessarily paint your nails for one specific day, how about autumn leaves? There are some great examples of leaf and tree designs here, here, here, and here.
  4. Geometric beauties. From polka dots to plaid, painted nails with texture or trim are just the ticket this season. Perfect polka dots look great here, while these chevron nails are sure to please here.
