Nail Art: Harry Potter Inspired Nails

For my first post I thought it would be fitting to do some Harry Potter inspired nail art because that's where 'Swish & Flick' comes from! I chose to call this blog 'Swish & Flick' because I feel like nail polish brushes can be like magic wands that you can make magic with (i.e. beautiful colours and designs). I guess I also just wanted the name to be HP related because I love HP and nail polish :)

and now for my Harry Potter inspired nails!

The symbols I used to represent HP were (L-R): Harry's Hogwarts letter, Hedwig's feather, the Golden Snitch, and the Deathly Hallows.

This is only the second time that I've attempted nail art using acrylic paints so there's a lot of room for improvement! I screwed up the Hogwarts emblem on the envelope but apart from that I'm really happy with how they turned out :) Hedwig's feather on my middle finger was the first feather I've painted and I'm really proud of it. Feathers are really easy to paint but they look so effective!

At first I was having a little trouble working with the acrylic paint because I found it to be a little thick (it was very cheap paint!) but after adding a tiny bit of acrylic glaze medium it became much more workable!

I used Essence Color & Go Blue Addicted as the base and added some lose gold hex glitters after I'd finished with painting and sealed them with a top coat.

I finished them off with Seche Ultra V topcoat (which is amazing) and three days later they are still perfect with no chips at all :)
