Hallows or Horcruxes??

  In the last book Harry had to choose whether or not he should find and kill the horcruxes, or go after the hallows. I decided to base my Harry Potter nails on this. I found that this was a very important question to ask himself. Which SHOULD he go after? Overall, I think my nails turned out ok... not great, seeing that I am awful at free hand nail art, but it could have been worse.

  I don't know about you, but I personally thought that the movie was disappointing. It was nothing like the book, and the ending made me upset. They didn't even have the whole discussion between Voldemort and Harry! And the duel between Mrs. Weasley and Bellatrix!!! In the book is was epic! In the movie it was like 20 seconds long! I am not saying that the movie was bad (it was actually pretty good), it just made me upset that it was NOTHING like the book. I also want to mention that if you haven't read the book... READ IT. It will be one of the best books you will have ever read in your life.

Moving onto the nails.....


Thumb: Salazar Slytherin's Locket
 Index: Harry's Scar
 Middle: Helga Hufflepuff's Cup
 Ring: Marvolo Gaunts Ring
 Pinky: Tom Riddle's Diary


 Index: Resurrection Stone
 Middle: Elder Wand
 Ring: Deathly Hallows Sign
Pinky: Invisibility Cloak

As you can see... I am not the best at drawing... and I failed miserably at the deathly hallows sign (tried 6 times!) and at the cloak...I tried to make it look like a moon manicure... but... no. If your wondering why I didn't post my right hand thumb (hallows side) it's the deathly hallows sign. It was so bad though, that I didn't even want to take a photo of it, lol. Overall, I am actually quite happy at the way this turned out... my nails look kind of awesome from a distance. 

Do you love Harry Potter as much as I do? Were you sort of disappointed at the movie like me? What did you like and what didn't you like? What do you think of my nails?? I would LOVE to hear feedback. Who is your favorite character? Mine is probably Bellatrix Lestrange... Helena Bonham Carter is THE best actress in the world! Pity she didn't play a bigger part in this last movie.

I loved Harry Potter. I really like your nails, I had trouble drawing the scar myself...(the easiest bit) I thought the movie was an excellent ending to the series. I think Bellatrix is my favorite also. She plays her so crazy, I love it. I love how they played up Neville. Although he never gets with Luna as they implied at the end. I think the things they added made it better. My fiance didnt read the books and he liked that they explained everything which they didnt really do in the previous movies. I felt it was paced well. I passed up this polish because it looked like another silver, but I really like it.
