Base & Top Polish
Nude or Cream colored Polish
Black Polish
A toothpick


*Always start by painting your nails with the base polish. This keeps nails healthy and strong, and also allows paint to be removed  off cleanly and completely.

=When that dries, paint your nails with the cream/nude colored polish. (: super easy!

=Next, use the toothpick and black polish to draw the symbols or designs from the book. I used the typography from the book to form the HP nail- just make the stem of the P crooked.

=To make the broomstick, paint one line on a diagonal, then add a few more lines on the bottom end for the bristles.

=The next nail can really be whatever you think it looks like, hahaha. I was trying to make a golden snitch, but without the gold is loses the look. So, you can say it is a bat or a spider, or make any other image you want instead, and of course you can change any image to make it your own (:

=How could you have Harry Potter nails without a lightning bolt? (I looked at a picture of a lighting bolt online to make it- is that cheating?)

=Let dry completely before you cover with a top polish. This allows it to stay on longer without chipping and makes it super shiny!
