31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 24 - Inspired by a Book

Welcome to Day 24 of the 31 DAY NAIL ART CHALLENGE!  Today's nails were inspired by my favorite book series out there: Harry Potter!  Sorry Twilight, Hunger Games, and 50 Shades....nothing can pull me away from the amazingly well-crafted series I grew up with!!  These past few days have been fun because I get to share some of my favorite things with you all  =)


I had big dreams for a Harry Potter mani with characters, but I just wasn't doing it justice, so I decided to go with a simple tape mani and some well-chosen polishes!  I started out with three coats of Wet N Wild MegaLast Under Your Spell.  This vampy sparkler is phenomenal for $1.99!  Reminiscent of German-icure and Every Month is Oktoberfest from OPI (potential comparison post coming soon).  I then used scotch tape to create my lightning bolt in Essie Good As Gold.  I am impressed with the Mirrored Metallics' use in nail art!  I then added a coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets to all of my nails.  The combination of the sparkle in the base color and the gold flakes is magical!!   Finished it off with a coat of Out the Door top coat.




I really loved how these turned out.  It was hard to capture the shimmery-glimmery-ness (my new word?!) of this look on camera, but really, it was awesome! I get so hyped up when I'm talking about Harry Potter, so these nails had me bouncing around!  Here's a little behind-the-scenes look for you...


Thanks for reading!!  Love you all! <3  Head on over to Sincerely Stephanie and check out what she came up with.  Her "inspired by" manis have been amazing so far!  She's been going through a really rough time loosing her dog, Lacey, so send some love her way =(  Click the image below to see all of my 31 Day Nail Art Challenge posts!  See you tomorrow for my fashion-inspired mani!
