Well Done Gryffindor

Gryffindor Nail Art

100 points to Gryffindor!!!  My first Harry Potter inspired nails are probably my most popular nails, so I was super excited when I found these Harry Potter stamping plates by Aiyoohehe.

They have plates for each of the houses, as well as the books.  I used the Deathly Hallows plate last week.  Too bad I didn't have this ring then, but it still works for this design. I got the ring from Born Pretty Store.  For only $3.49, I couldn't pass it up. Plus, you can use coupon code GHLQ10 for 10% off!  The ring also comes in silver and black.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wild and Crazy - Wild Vision
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Liquid Gold
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • hēhē stamping plate - 026 (Gryffindor)
  • Rubber stamper

These plates are so detailed, that even just basic stamping looks amazing.  I kept the color scheme red and gold for Gryffindor.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a maroon base color.

  2. Use gold stamping polish to stamp the design on each nail - check on index, Gryffindor emblem on middle, swirls on ring, crisscross on pinky, and sweeping lines on thumb.

If you could be in any house, which would you choose?  I think I would choose Gryffindor.  Not just because it was the one Harry Potter was in, or because it is the most popular, but I like what they stand for.

Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart
