POTTERthon! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Ah, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a ridiculous mix of teenage hormones and Death Eaters. There is a lot of romance in this story, which is severely contrasted by the war the wizarding world is experiencing - not to mention the eeeeviiiiiil task that the Dark Lord and Snape have set for Draco Malfoy. In this book/movie we also get to learn more about Tom Riddle, his past and his time as a student in the Slug Club. And probably most importantly we find out what the hell horcruxes are.

The things that stuck out to me the most, and to most of the ladies, were the two horcruxes from this story. From left to right on my fingers: the Gaunt family ring (the symbol in the middle might be familiarr), the middle finger is a jelly sammich that both represents all the different love connections in this book as well as Harry's potion lessons, my ring finger is meant to be both the locket and the necklace that cursed Katie Bell in Hogsmeade, and finally my pinkie is a gross gradient meant to represent both Dumbledore's cursed hand from the beginning of the book as well as his death and the general transition from good to evil. I am so in love with my two horcrux fingers (pointer and ring), so I have no complaints about this one - except that I need to take some more pictures in the daylight tomorrow because I don't love the ones I have right now

  3. I've just started reading the books again for the umpteenth time, and I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying your POTTERthon nails! They're just so beautifully realised--and they're making me even more excited about going through this series all over again!

    The pinky on this manicure is so inspired. Gave me chills. ;)
