Harry Potter Nails!

31 Day Challenge: Inspired By A Movie

Harry Potter Nailsssss! I love love love Harry Potter, but probably not quite as much as other people because I haven't read all the books....yeaaaaah, I just admitted that. That's why I chose to do this mani for inspired by a movie, not a book. Don't judge me, I read the first two and love all the movies but was never a big reader as a kid. Who wants to read after doing forced reading assignments for school? I sure didn't. I plan to read them all some day, now that I'm a big girl and no longer in school, I just have to finish a few other books first.

So anyways, I did all the Hogwarts houses on my nails like many others have done before. Slytherin is my pinky, Hufflepuff is my ring finger, Ravenclaw is my middle finger, Gryffindor my index finger and of course a lightning bolt on my thumb. I used this tutorial for the lightning bolt by Nailside and I'm obsessed with it and love the way it came out. The only issue I had was with my Ravenclaw nail. SO simple, it was the first nail I did! Then I bumped it. Then I fixed it. Then I got glitter in the top coat and it got all wrinkly and weird, so I did it AGAIN. I messed it up a little the last time and decided IT'S FINE!  I also bumped Hufflepuff twice! That's why the line isn't was. Ugh, I'm just glad I only screwed up the easy ones. If I bumped the lightning bolt I might have cried. Man, these look so good until you take close up pictures of them, hahaha.

Oh also, my wands are Ron's, Hermione's and I bought the Deathly Hallows necklace and the Golden Snitch necklace on Etsy!
