Harry Potter nails

Hi ladies!! I went to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 today and boy was it EPIC!! Everything and more I'd hoped for in the final installment of the movies. It was so emotional and of course I blubbered like a baby x) I'm so sad to see the end of an era as the Harry Potter series has been such a huge part of my life. I was 11 when The Philosopher's Stone came out and my Latin teacher introduced my class to the "Boy Who Lived" and it's been a journey along with Harry, Hermione and Ron ever since. Thank goodness I can read the books over and over again! I wanted some special nails to mark the occasion so here are my Harry Potter nails inspired by the Hogwarts house colours.

What I used:

Pinky: Ravenclaw (blue & bronze) - I used 2 coats of BYS Astro Gold (it's more a bronzey foil than gold) and then added a coat of OPI Blue Shatter *.

Ring finger: Slytherin (green & silver) - I used 2 coats of OPI Jade is the New Black and then added a Dark Mark inspired image from Bundle Monster plate BM-225 using China Glaze Millenium.

Middle finger: Hufflepuff (yellow & black) - I used 3 coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky and then stamped full diamond tartan design from Konad plate m60 using Konad Special Polish in black.

Index finger: Gryffindor (red & gold) - I used 2 coats of Flormar 358 and then stamped full diagonal line design from Bundle Monster plate BM20 using China Glaze Passion.

Thumb: I used 2 coats of Face Of Australia Gold* and then added a lightning bolt with a small brush using Ulta 3 Black Satin.

In case you're wondering, the Harry Potter wand was a gift from D who purchased it from Noble Collection. My mother knitted the Gryffindor scarf and the Harry Potter glases are 3D ones from Event Cinemas. My sister also has a Gryffindor tie and jumper too! xD

Event Cinemas George St have some official movie props on display until this Tuesday and it's worth checking out! They don't have too much but still well worth it for fans.

Clockwise from top: The Daily Prophet from Order of the Phoenix; Mafalda Hopkirk's Identity card from Deathly Hallows - Part 1; The Daily Prophet from Order of the Phoenix; Dark Arts Defence Basics for Beginners from Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's wand:

  7. I cried too! And I actually feel kind of sorry for the younger generations of Potter fans... they'll never get to know what it's like to go to a midnight release of either the books or the movies :( such an exciting time, all the cosplay, the anticipation in the air, the love for the characters and the world of J.K! I feel so grateful to have been able to grow up WITH Harry like I did.

  9. Love it, it's so rad! I did HP nails also, but my Slytherin green was all wrong, and Konad and Born Pretty plates didn't have anything comparable to the skull.
    So sad to see it all come to an end. Ten years of my life.
