We are in the final hours before the first part of the last Harry Potter is released! I ordered my tickets a week ago, but I've been counting done since the 6th movie came out. Even though I had my lucky Blackhawks mani on I decided that I should do a Harry Potter mani to celebrate the release of the movie. I knit myself a Weasley sweater and a house scarf, I think I should have a matching mani as well.
The whole day today I was planning out how I would paint my nails an after brainstorming a few ideas I decided on this one. This might be on my nails for only a few days but I love it, and it is a great way for me to use a few different polishes in one mani!
To paint the house colors I applied the base color (whichever was the lighter of the two) and then on half my nail I applied the other color. Then on my thumb I applied a base color and drew on a "H" with bronze polish.
Hufflepuff (Pinkie): 3 coats Sinful Colors Lets Meet and 1 coat of Wet and Wild Black Creme
Slytherin (Ring): 2 coats Orly Shine and 2 coats Orly Enchanted Forest
Gryffindor (Middle): 2 coats OPI Glitzerland and 2 coats China Glaze Phat Santa
Ravenclaw (Pointer): 2 coats Orly Shine and 2 coats OPI Dating a Royal
Hogwarts (Thumb): 1 coat Wet and Wild Black Creme and NYC Bryant Park for the "H"
This was pretty fast to paint and I applied 1 coat of Seche Vite to quicken the drying time.
Now I just have 2 hours and 34 minutes left to wait until I get to watch the movie! Well I'm off to the magical world of Harry Potter...
Until next time,
