31 Day Challenge Day 24 - Inspired By A Book

Hello everyone! I was super excited for today's challenge! I didn't start reading Harry Potter until this year (yes, I am WAY behind) and I absolutely LOVE it! I am so glad I finally read it and caught up with the rest of the world. LOL

Since I wasn't into the HP series back when it was new and books were still being written (and movies still being made), I never did HP nails when other bloggers were celebrating movie releases and such. This seemed like the perfect occasion to attempt some HP nails of my own!

Crest and description of each house at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The Deathly Hallows symbol - representative of The Elder Wand, The Resurrection Stone and The Invisibility Cloak

I decided to do one nail for each house and to place the Deathly Hallows symbol on my thumb. 

Keep your eyes open and see if you can spot all the different "props" I used!

What do you think of my Harry Potter nails? I am pretty darn proud of them!
