Harry Potter Slytherin House Inspired Nails!!

Hi lovess!!!! I know A THIRD post for the day! I couldn't wait to share these with you guys!

   I can hear the collective nerdgasm over the happenings of today as I type this. It all ends here. I can't believe it's been 11 years since these movies started... I'm not like a hardcore Harry Potter fan by any means but I do enjoy the movies quite a lot. Late last year I had a chance to visit The Wizarding World of HP at Universal Studios Orlando and it was so mind blowing!

  So for I decided to do themed nails for such an epic occasion. I kept it simple and turned my nails into little shields. If I had any kind of freehand ability I would have done little snakes in the center. I really like the finished mani even though it is not my bestest taping job. This was my first time doing the checkered pattern and it was a little more involved than I thought it would be. Erika makes it look so easy....
So for this mani I did alternating nails in Zoya's Trixie and SpaRitual's Twisted Vine. I ran into somewhat of an issue when I was painting over the Silver because the formula is slightly sheerer than I thought it was so it was having issues fully covering the Silver... But when it was all said and done I really liked this mani.

I went with Slytherin House because I'm convinced that would be my placement in Hogwarts. I'm a little dark and misunderstood lol... So I would fit right in!
Are you going to a midnight showing? And what was on your nails!?

  8. I think for any attempt at taping, this is great! Love the colors you picked. And nope...not going to any midnight premier of Harry. All reviewers say it's the best of 'em all. Knowing me, I will see if when it hits premium cable TV channels. I tend to fall asleep in every movie I go to no matter how great it is!
