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?
