17 Magical Harry Potter Character Nail Designs You Should Try
So Good, It’s Magic!
No one plans to stop the spell anytime soon! The JK Rowling approved play and book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is currently on stage in London. Meanwhile, a spinoff of the series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is set to premiere this fall!
Find out which Harry Potter character looks best on your nails with these amazing designs:
It’s not a Harry Potter character, but the Marauder’s Map has certainly earned its place in Potterheads’ hearts everywhere. The amazing Hogwarts map seems alive enough to become an actual magical creature! You can recreate this design by following this step-by-step tutorial.
2. Marauders Animagus
The four original owners of the Marauder’s Map were also important characters in the entire series, despite them having been in Hogwarts years before Harry’s time. Here they are in Animagus form, in what might have been a full moon.
3. Harry in Gryffindor
Harry’s house, Gryffindor, is known for having brave students. Our main Harry Potter character definitely proved himself to be a real Gryffindor.
4. Harry and Ron
Partners in mischief, Harry and Ron Weasley always manage to get into trouble together.
5. The Golden Trio
Harry and Ron aren’t the only members of the elite group. However, without Hermione, Harry and Ron would never survive. They’re dubbed as the Golden Trio for a reason.
6. Hagrid and Dumbledore
Two of Harry’s other most beloved friends include Hagrid and Dumbledore.
7. Harry and Hedwig
Doesn’t this free-hand drawing of Harry and his loyal pet Hedwig give all sorts of feels?
8. Luna Lovegood
Luna may have been a bit looney but she was loyal and lovable. It’s only fitting that she gets a nail art homage as well. Demi Siriusly provided this very cool tutorial for this nail design.
One of the most heartbreaking sacrifices made by a Harry Potter character was Dobby’s effort to save Harry and the gang from the Malfoys. This nail art tribute certainly is a fitting tribute to the loyal house elf.
10. Buckbeak Takes Flight
Harry Potter and the Prisoner Azkaban revealed a lot of things to readers and movie goers. This design (another one from allwaspolished) shows Buckbeak taking flight after being saved from the executioner’s ax.
11. Severus Snape
If you’re a true Harry Potter fan, you’ll know the meaning of this nail design instantly.
12. Draco Malfoy
He may be Harry’s mortal enemy at school, but I ended up feeling bad for him after Voldemort took over his entire family.
13. The Cursed Child
The newest Harry Potter world is a play featuring the main star’s second child (JK Rowling approved).
14. Dementor’s Kiss
When a dementor comes for you, you have to duck and run for your life.
15. Death Eater
Voldemort’s Death Eaters started appearing in the Goblet of Fire when they invaded the Quidditch World Cup. However, not all of them were entirely loyal to the Dark Lord. Isn’t this design perfect for Halloween as well? You can have this exact design by following Nail Art by Nadine’s tutorial.
16. Harry and Voldemort
No other contrast is more apparent than Harry and Voldemort. The entire story revolved around the battle between the two enemies. This nail art also pays homage to the Deathly Hallows.
17. 3D Harry and Voldemort
Just having Harry and Voldemort’s faces on your nails isn’t quite as interesting as making the design 3D! This nail art has a 3D Elder Wand so realistic you can try casting a spell with it!
