Nails and Outfits Photo Post!

Hey everyone,

So real life and work really took over in the lead up to the end of the financial year! I was pretty much just working then going home to bed! Thankfully it's started to calm down a little again and I can focus more on the fun stuff in life!

Thought I would do a quick update with some pictures of recent manis and some outfits too!

During June, I haven't done heaps, but my boyfriend and I did go to Sydney to a big metal music show up there, and got to catch up with some friends, that was heaps of fun!

My boyfriends band also had their EP launch, which went really well!





This is my current mani, Zoya Sooki and OPI Pirouette my Whistle! Zoya Sooki is my perfect red creme!



Here's an outfit I wore in Sydney to go out to dinner at an all you can eat Brazillian BBQ place, it was AMAZING!
I have a mens shirt on from Jay Jays that I bought a few years ago, leather jacket and Black Milk Clothing leggings!

These nails are an Essence brand, Hazelnut Cream Pie, it has a slight pink shimmer through it, and a light purple glitter from the NOPI Justin Beiber collection

Potterthon! Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Hi everyone!



So here is the next set of nails for Potterthon! Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

The book was a really exciting one for me, I loved reading it and the good old fashioned mystery that surrounded the Half Blood Prince. I also really liked the scenes where Harry learned more of the past of Voldemort in order to learn to fight him better.

It also sees the revelation of information regarding the Horcruxes to Harry and gives an indication of the themes for the final novel.



HBP also led to a lot of rampant discussion and speculation regarding the true loyalties of Snape and revealed a little more of the depth to his character.

For my HBP nails I chose to  represent on my pinkie, the Sectumsempra spell, 'for enemies' which Harry finds in the HBP Potions book and uses on Malfoy.



On my ring finger is a piece of crystallised pineapple, Slughorns favourite sweet, my middle finger is the cave which Harry and Dumbledore travel to, to find the locket, with the basin full of glowing green potion. My pointer finger is of course the note, found inside the locket at the end of the novel, signed R.A.B and my thumb is the rings of fire Dumbledore creates to scare off the Inferi in the cave.

Stay tuned for the next installment in a few hours, the final book, The Deathly Hallows!

Potterthon! HarryPotter and the Order of the Pheonix

Hi everyone!

Sorry for falling behind on posting, the weekend ended up being really busy for me and I don't think I had my computer on for more than five minutes! Don't you just hate when real life catches up with you? ;)

Anyway, here are my nails for Order of the Pheonix! There is a lot of great scenes in this book, but in the end I decided to go with the one scene that stuck with me the most. So sudden I almost didn't register what had happened the first time I read it.. Sirius falls through the veil. I always find the scene a bit rough on me! My favourite character dying in such a sudden way with pretty much no closure.



For ages I insisted that he wasn't really dead and he would re-appear again, much like Harry feels in the books.

But he doesn't! :(

Its a turning point for the character of Harry, as he gains then looses his parental figure/older brother figure.

My manicure mostly shows the veil, with Sirius's hand as he falls backward and through while fighting Bellatrix.
On the thumb, I painted the Prophecy, which Harry hears in the Hall of Prophecy at the Ministry.

I did like the OotP book, though I haven't read it in a while and I'm pretty sure, this book is the one where Harry just WHINES a lot, and that really did start to drive me crazy!


Anyway, once again sorry for the lateness of my posts, the next book will be up in a few hours!

Don't forget to check out the other ladies who participated!
