Harry Potter Week - Day 1

Welcome to Harry Potter Week!!!  To celebrate the release of part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the movie version of the seventh book, coming this Friday, November 19, I will have five different Harry Potter-inspired manicures all week.  I've been reading Harry Potter books for more than half of my life, so I am really excited about the second to last movie - and really excited to share some Harry Potter manicures!

For the manicure today, I wanted to represent all four of the houses at Hogwarts.  On my index, I have the maroon and gold colors that make up the Gryffindor house, on my middle finger I have silver and green for Slytherin, Ravenclaw is on my ring finger in blue and bronze, and on my pinkie I have Hufflepuff in black and yellow.

I decided to redo the Slytherin manicure to make it look like green flames, but it didn't show up very well in my pictures.

Two coats of Nicole by OPI One Voice, with Konad plate m65 in OPI Just a Little Rosti at This (plus handpainted stripes in Rosti).

Opt. 1: Two coats China Glaze Cheers to You with OPI Cuckoo for this Color Konaded with plate m65, filled in with Zoya Veruschka.  
Opt. 2: Two coats China Glaze Cheers to You with Zoya Irene, OPI Cuckoo for this Color, and Zoya Veruschka Konaded with plate m73.

Two coats China Glaze 2030 with OPI Yodel Me on My Cell Konaded with plate m63.

Two coats of Nicole by OPI One Voice with a Konad design in CND Blackjack using plate m65.

Stop by tomorrow for my second Harry Potter-inspired manicure!!
