...or insert whatever spell you know the name of as the title.

Today was a terrific day! Not only did I get to see my boyfriend...but we saw the new Harry Potter movie! Yes, the Harry Potter that isn't even showing in theaters yet. A big thank you to Comcast for having a prescreening and an even bigger thank you to my incredible boyfriend who chose to take me to go see it. It was fantastic. I will admit...I have not read any of the HP books. I should also admit that I probably will not read the HP books at all. I have seen almost all the movies though and the ones I haven't luckily my boyfriend has so he could keep whispering why a specific thing was important or who a character was when I had no idea. It was at the King of Prussia IMAX theater and seriously, you should definitely go see it when it comes out...this weekend I think? Maybe next. I don't know. Anyway, I kept trying to think of an appropriate Harry Potter/Spells/Wizards manicure and sadly enough my creativity decided to desert me today. Here's what I ended up painting: lightning bolts a la Harry Potter's scar. Also, on the index, the golden snitch....since it came up in the movie.
I used China Glaze Midnight Mission, an unnamed gray from a four set of LA Colors, and Kiss Brush-On Nail Art Paint in Silver for the Harry Potter lightning bolt. Also, on the index finger I used Orly Glitz & Glamour gold snitch :)


  1. Hey, I'm not sure if you would find it an issue but I'm being kind and informing you on this. The nail art blog widely known as Nailside which is run by someone of the name Jane is going around saying SHE created lightning bolt manis. Upon googling I discovered this post of doing lightning bolt manis. I think it is safe to say this is the oldest post with that design and that if you truly did create them she is stealing your thunder.(HA punny XD) Going around requesting people link to her blog. I think she viciously hunts for those using the design and claims it as her own. Just thought I'd inform a fellow nail artist on the plagiarism nailside is partaking in. :) Have a good one.
