POTTERthon! Round-Up

Hooray! All seven Harry Potter manis are done, so I wanted to do a quick wrap-up post and share my favorite manis with you - both my personal favorites and my favorites that the other ladies did.

Harry Potter 1-4
l-r: Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter 5-7
l-r: Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince (macro), and Deathly Hallows (macro)

My favorite manis of mine are probably 3 (the time-turner), 6 (the first horcruxes), and 7 (the eye in the mirror and the spells meeting). All of the other ladies did some fabulous nail art, too. I've arranged my favorites from each one, one for each book/movie.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by Sam - I thought these were really adorable and well thought out. She included the Mirror of Erised! And her stone nail is great, too (the red one with stamping)
sam's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by Jewli - I thought her new and creative technique of using crackle for the snake was so awesome! Definitely something I hadn't thought of, but now I can't wait to try it

Julia's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by Bee - as with LOSTathon, Bee always trumps the other participants with her extreme geekery and excellent use of quotes. This is the Marauder's Map and it is wonderful. I love scenes that go across all nails like this!

Bee's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by Debbie - I'm always partial to scenes that go across most of the nails, and this one was very unique because it focused on what happened after the Tri-Wizard Cup

Debbie's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by Kerrie - I love that Kerrie used this series as an opportunity to try new techniques, like feather and newsprint manis. This one I also especially love because she has a stuffed Fawkes :)

Kerrie's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by Abby - omg, her pensieve! I can't get over how great it is!! And her pinkie :'(

Abby's Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by ME! - while I had other favorites, like my third mani, I liked some of the other ladies versions better so I guess this one if my favorite. I really am proud of my eye and spells meeting :D
