HP BDay!


To further cement my status in the nerd community, I've chosen to do nail art to celebrate a very important birthday today. SUPER Important. Like kill-Voldemort-and-save-the-world important. Yes, really. It's that time of year again, July 31 (or 31 July, if you're anywhere but America), which means that it's the birthday of a beloved magical character...Harry James Potter.

If you've been reading the blog for a while, you know that I'm a bit of a fan. By bit, I mean HUGE, wait in line at midnight screenings, midnight book releases, and know the stupid books practically by heart huge. No, as I've stated before, I don't dress up. (I did screen print my own Harry-themed t-shirts for the 8th movie though) I'm not embarrassed of my Harry Potter devotion, because HP is awesome, and I think most of you will say the same.

So what would you give Harry as a birthday present? Some chocolate frogs? A broomstick maintenance kit? Socks? I'd make him a levitating cake...to say, I'd make him a cake and have Hermione levitate it. *Wingardium Leviosa!* BAM!

Anyway, my HP Bday nails...



I used:

Gold: China Glaze 2030
Maroon: CND Bloodline
Flesh: Zoya Avery
Black: American Apparel Hassid
Brown: OPI Suzi Likes Cowboys & some American Apparel Hassid
Pink: Zoya Avery and CND Bloodline combined
Light Blue: American Apparel American Denim
Darker Blue (For Frosting Shading): Aldo Sea You in Ibiza
White: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On
Orange: CND Electric Orange
Yellow: American Apparel Manila
Red: China Glaze Hey Sailor
Topcoat: Seche Vite

Nox.
