Happy Harry Potter day everyone! If you’re not into the whole Potter-universe, I’ll apologize for my following article in advance. I’m a bit of a Harry fan-girl.
So in honor of me and the Bionic friends heading to a midnight showing tonight, I’ve done a full Harry Potter themed manicure and pedicure.
First, the “Dumbledore’s Army” pedicure…
I used Sinful Colors nail polish in Rich in Heart (and it runs only about $2.50 at Walgreens stores!). It’s a black toned red and one of my favorites. To add a “magical effect”, I used Orly’s Love Each Other polish. It’s basically a clear coat with really tiny purple shimmer.
I drew on the Dumbledore’s Army logo using Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Silver. Then followed with a top coat of Seche Vite since the Sally Hansen pens wear off really easily without a big, thick top coat.
Next up, my fingers…
Since I’m dressing up as Hermione Granger I wanted to add some Ancient Runes symbols and of course, the Deathly Hallows symbol. As you can tell, I fully embrace my geeky side. I made my own Hogwarts robe, S.P.E.W and Prefect badges… afterall, geek is the new chic, right?
The colors used are:
- Lancome’s Le Vernis nail polish in Indigo Paris (this is a Fall 2009 color that was sent to me as as an preview, it’s absolutely gorgeous!). You could use any other deep color such as Rich in Heart, Sally Hansen’s The Deepest of Plums or After Midnight, or OPI’s DS series “Fantasy”. Sinful Colors have loads of deep polishes that would work for this look!
- Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Silver to draw on the symbols.
- And topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.
And finally a close up of The Deathly Hallows symbol…
Are there any Bionic Beauties out there who are also Harry Potter fans? Are you going to see the movie tonight or when?
