Dun dun dun....

I would officially like to present the (not) Official Harry Potter NP Collection!
Overall I am very satisfied with these polishes.. some turned out to be a tad tricky to apply, and some were very different from my original idea.. but I'm satisfied.

In no particular order:

Wherefore Art Thou Werewolf
DSCF0585

My first shade :) WATW is a rich, chocolate brown with a gold shimmer and a small amount of rainbow microglitter. This is two coats, no b/c or t/c.

Duddykins
DSCF0603

I love this color, though I'm not sure how I feel about it on me. Duddykins is a warm coral cream leaning a bit towards the orange side. This picture is almost exactly color accurate, except that Duddykins is just a tad warmer in person. This is three coats, but you could get away with two if you were careful. No b/c or t/c.

Half-Moon Spectacles
DSCF0610

One of my favorites, Half-Moon Spectacles is a very pretty gray/blue/lavender sheer. It showed up more blue in this picture, but it has hints of purple in there as well. However, it is very sheer and does require three coats. No b/c or t/c.

Lily's Eyes
DSCF0615

Amazingly, this is only three coats. This is probably one of the sheerest polishes I own, so those three coats were a tad thick. I think it's worth it for the color though- An almost seafoam green with a (unseen in the picture) subtle gold/yellow flash. No b/c or t/c in this picture.

Catch My Mad-Eye
DSCF0629

My favorite name- though I can't take the credit for it. My friend came up with this name while she was helping me brainstorm polishes. Catch My Mad-Eye is an electric blue jelly, with a (extremely) subtle dark blue shimmer. The color is a tad darker IRL, along the lines of OPI's SSFS. This is 2 coats, no b/c or t/c in this pic.

Stupefy Me
DSCF0634

I have to admit, I'm running out of commentary. Stupefy Me is a great tomato red with a jelly(ish) finish. Like pretty much every other color, this also has a really subtle flash- an orange one, in this case. Two coats, no b/c or t/c in this picture.

The Chosen One
DSCF0636

I apologize in advance for any blindness or mental scarring due to the messiness and grossness of my cuticles in this picture. I kind of lost patience with many nice, neat little swatches.. so I just slapped this one on. A black jelly with green/gold glitter, this went on very nicely. Two coats, no b/c or t/c.

Meet Me At Zonkos
DSCF0646

The only one that was really different from my original listings, MMAZ is a crazy green, blue, silver & purple glitter. This picture is two coats over Wet N' Wild Black. I believe you could have it by itself with a few thick coats, but I didn't have the patience to do that today :) No b/c or t/c in this picture.

oh, I really like Lily's Eyes and Duddykins! I will have to pm you on MUA to see if maybe we can work out a swap later!!

I just found your blog from your posts on the NailBoard about these polishes :)
Coming from another HP fan, these are so cool! I love all of the names and the polishes that you created!
I'm hoping that OPI will do something for the Deathly Hallows movies, because of their recent collaborations with Alice in Wonderland and Shrek. I will buy the whole collection for sure!

I agree- I'd spend my entire bank account on actual HP polishes. Thanks so much guys, I love the feedback.
