Day 24 – Inspired by a Book – Harry Potter

I’m a major bookworm, so I had a hard time deciding which one to pick for today.  But I had to go with Harry Potter, since it’s the one series I keep going back to, and I’ve read them more than any other book I own.  I will probably do book-inspired nail art for the others later, though.

I really like how these turned out, especially since I freehanded the patterns (which is somehow more difficult for me than painting more intricate designs).  I especially love how the HP logo turned out!  I wish there were more books/movies coming out so I could do this again – I got into nail art too late.

For this one, I’m going to list the polishes by finger since they’re all completely different.  HP logo: China Glaze Fast Track and Smoke & Ashes.  Gryffindor: Essie Apertif and Shifting Power.  Ravenclaw: Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue and a mix of Essie Shifting Power and Very Structured.  Slytherin: Essie Going Incognito and Loophole.  Hufflepuff: Zoya Pippa and China Glaze Smoke & Ashes.

I finally bought a matte topcoat, so I thought I’d see what this would look like matte, since there was a mix of textures in the polishes.  I really like how it turned out.

I used Essie Matte About You.

Which version do you like better – glossy or matte?
