Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


Finally got tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in February! It was absolutely magical! Of course I had to paint my nails for the occasion.
On my left hand I have the book cover (with yellow gradient base), Gryffindor scarf colours, a time turner, a golden snitch, and Gryffindor tie colours.
On my right hand I have the Deathly Hallows symbol, Slytherin tie colours, the sorting hat, Slytherin scarf colours, and the Cursed Child logo.

I also painted a Barry M Matte top coat over them and I love the finish it makes:
Would like to try this more often as it really brings out the detail in my photographs.

Naturally I had to dress for the occasion too with my Harry Potter clothing and jewellery. Here's a few pics from the day:
Really hope I get to go again one day. If you're a Harry Potter fan don't miss out, it's so worth it!

Happy 2017!


New Year's Eve 2016-2017. Using Barry M glitters and metallics and Model's Own Hypergel in black and white for the detail.

Advent jumpers

For last year's Christmas advent nails I decided to paint themed Christmas jumper nails based on either a movie or TV show. Usually I start at 16 and just paint the last 10 days before Christmas. This time I gave myself an extra challenge of starting from day 1. I was also planning on painting a whole hand for each day but that idea soon went out the window (pardon the pun) due to mega busy working hours.

Day 1:
Friends. With "Paper, snow, a ghost", Central Perk, and the holiday armadillo.

Days 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6:

 Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns, Harry Potter Gryffindor (with golden snitches) and Slytherin (with snakes), and Adventure Time.

Days 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11:

Toy Story, Frozen, Elf, Home Alone 2 and Home Alone.

Days 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16:

Bad Santa, Star Wars (with a 'Merry Sithmas'), Die Hard, Mickey Mouse, and Santa's Little Helper from The Simpsons.

Days 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21:

Gremlins, Scrooged, Arnie in Jingle All The Way, Trading Places, and Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. 

Days 22, 23, 24 and 25:

Muppets Christmas Carol, A Nightmare Before Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and a Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄
