Paint Box Polish Ravenclaw & Gryffindor

Good morning dears!  You are reading.  I am driving to the Central Valley for a soccer tournament.  You are probably having more fun than me.  Ok I am being dramatic.  I love watching my kids play, I'm his biggest fan!  If you were around last night and saw my post you'd know that Paint Box Polish is releasing a new collection today - The Knight Bus Collection.  If you missed it you can see it HERE.  But today I am sharing a few polishes from an older collection also inspired by Harry Potter. You can pick up either of the beauties I am sharing today or any others using my discount code MNPO for 15% off!  Happy shopping!

This blue beauty is Ravenclaw.  It's a shimmery, deep blue packed with fine bronze glitter.   Of course this is inspired by the House Ravenclaw.  If you look up Ravenclaw on Harry Potter Wiki you will learn that "Ravenclaw values intelligence, knowledge and wit.  It's emblematic animal is the eagle, and it's colors are blue and bronze."  Pam nailed it!  The base plus the glitters create a metallic look that is so pretty.  The formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats of Ravenclaw for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat.

And everyone's favorite house, Gryffindor!  I went on Pottermore and am happy to report that I was placed in the Gryffindor!  Gryffindor is described as valuing "bravery, daring, nerve and chivalry.  It's emblematic animal is the lion and the colors are scarlet and gold." And Paint Box's Gryffindor is shimmery red fine gold glitters in irregular shapes.  This is a stunning color!  It's one of those lit-up, glowing ember red types that get me all lusty.  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 2 coats of Gryffindor for full coverage and a layer of topcoat.

I had to share one more picture of Gryffindor!  Here I am holding my Hermoine Granger wand.  I got this from Olivander's in Daigon Alley.  Coolest place ever!  If you haven't been to Universal Studios Orlando, all the Harry Potter stuff makes it more than worth the crowds.
