Nail Art: Harry Potter and a Blog Award

As you all may well know, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be showing in a few days! I'm looking forward to it actually! I'm also looking for someone who'd like to watch it with me! But that's a different story! :) Anyway, so last night, I decided to make a Harry Potter nail art.

This is another freehand nail art design. For my Harry Potter nails, I wanted to try my cartooning skills and decided to try making my own cartoon version of Harry Potter himself. This is what happened:

I used OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous in 3 coats. With 2 coats, my nail bed is visible depending on lighting so I decided to apply another layer. I love this color. It came from the OPI Swiss Collection minis that my Nanay gave me a few weeks back.

Yes, I did left the other nails as is. My mind went blank after I finished painting Harry Potter on my ring finger. I think it's quite nice since I really wanted the design to stand out and it has been a long time since I wore my nails like this.

Here's a closer shot of my Harry Potter inspired nail art:

Does he look like Harry Potter?

Please forgive me as I don't have a tutorial for this nail art. I was actually experimenting and I worked directly on my nail. I didn't take pictures while I was painting my nails because I didn't expect I'll be satisfied with my first attempt. If you want me to post a tutorial for this, please let me know through the comment section and I'd be glad to redo this for you. :)

I'd also like to share with you my Nanay's nail art. Yes, she's now my regular nail art client and I'm not complaining! She even let her nails grew a little!

  2. I'm such a huge Harry Potter so I had quite an embarassing reaction to these. They are ADORABLE. You did such a good job on Harry! I'm seeing the movie midnight on Wednesday and I am way too excited but I was thinking of trying some HP themed nail art.

  8. LOL, I had a bit of a laugh when I saw two 1st Danielle and 2nd Danielle! I'm from Australia and the movie comes out on the 18th here so we get it pretty early for some reason when you also factor in the time difference. It's only something like 20 hours away now; so excited@

  9. Hi, Varnish Vixen! I'm sure you can draw Harry Potter just fine. :) Unruly hair, glasses, and a scar!

    Hi again, Danielle! Timezone is like cheating! In a sense you'll still see the movie earlier than I will. I just hope they won't cut Part 1 of the movie in a very climactic scene. :)
