March favorites 

Ooops I totally forgot to post my favorite designs from March here in the blog too, you may have already seen them on my Instagram page.

It looks like bright colors and gradient was my obsession this past month! ❤

My absolute favorite design from March is my freehanded Hufflepuff nails. Which one of these designs do you like the most?

Hufflepuff

A while ago I was invited to a Harry Potter themed nail art group on instagram, and since I’m a huge HP fan I was super excited to join. The first theme we decided to create was house pride. This was a bit tricky for me at first, since I didn’t know which house I belonged to. I’ve actually thought about this before, that I should be sorted but I just haven’t figured it out. I kind of knew that it would be either Hufflepuff or Slytherin, and I was happy when the sorting hat finally said “Hufflepuff!”.

For my Hufflepuff mani I obviously had to use Hufflepuff from Pahlish, which is the base for the design. To create the stripes I used Gift wrap stencils from Snail vinyls and Midnight Mischief from Painted Polish. The background for the other two nails are created using stamping plate BP-30 from Born Pretty Store and I just can’t cope-cabana from OPI. Then I used black and white acrylic paint and Detail brush 24 Dance from Whats up nails to paint the H and the badger over the leaf pattern. I finished off the design with two coats of HK Girl for a super glossy result!

I am so happy with these nails and I’m really impressed with how my badger turned out, so be prepared for a lot of photos of these nails!

I hope you like these nails as much as I do, and I’m really looking forward to making more HP themed manis in the near future.

Any HP fans out there? Let me know in the comments which house you belong to!

August favorites

Today is the first day of September, does that mean that autumn is officially here? Anyway, here are my favorite manis from August.

It’s so hard to pick a favorite from these, I love them all! I mean how can I chose between holo, London or Harry Potter!?

Harry Potter nails

When I was in London we visited the making of Harry Potter studio tour. I have been wanting to go there for such a long time and finally I got to! Of course I had to make some Harry Potter nails and I have to say that they were a success. I got many comments on them which was really fun.

Any Harry Potter fan can probably figure out what was my inspiration for these nails. From left: Harry’s lightning bolt scar, the golden snitch, platform 9¾, HP logo and the Deathly Hallows symbol.

The white base is Alpine snow and the black details are made with Lady in Black. The golden polish is My favorite ornament and they’re all OPI’s.
