As soon as there’s a chill in the air, we’re re-watching Harry Potter. And now, we can look even cuter casting our spells with these Harry Potter nail designs.
The series about wizards and witches and Hogwarts the school for magical youth is a comfort watch for many, with characters that jump off the page and the screen. Not literally, although they probably could. They are magic, after all.
These Harry Potter nail designs feature the Chosen One himself and his gang of friends including Ron and Hermione. Plus, they show off plenty of symbols from the series, including the golden Snitch, Hogwarts house colors, and magic wands. The hardest part will be deciding which one to get first. You poor muggle, you.
35 Harry Potter Nail Designs for Every Type of Wizard
1. Mischief Managed Nails
Think of all the mischief you could manage with these mismatched Harry Potter nails. Confusing the muggles, for one.
2. Harry Potter Nail Design
This set of nails features two accent pieces, with Harry Potter himself and the HP logo, surrounded with burgundy nail polish to match Gryffindor. Perfect for the biggest show-offs at Hogwarts. :cackles in Hufflepuff:
3. Disney x Harry Potter Nails
A collab between Harry Potter, Disney, and Halloween? You’re making all our Millennial dreams come true.
4. Harry Potter Symbols Manicure
The glasses, the scar, the golden Snitch. So much better than the regular snitch (your one coworker who outs you to your boss when you’re late).
5. Honeydukes Nails
Honeydukes is the wizarding sweets shop located in Hogsmeade village. They sell delicacies like chocolate frogs and Jelly beans that taste like earwax. What’s not to love?
6. Hufflepuff Nails
Hufflepuffs are known for being loyal, kind, and patient. The symbol is a badger, which may not look threatening, but that’s only cause it’s not. But we have Cedric Diggory.
7. Gryffindor Nails
A subtle nod to the Gryffindor house in signature maroon and gold, these nails celebrate that house of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger, along with most of the other characters in the series. But we’re supposed to think they’re equal in relevance. Uh-huh.
8. Slytherin Nails
Slytherins get a bad reputation, but that’s only because they produce tons of dark wizards, including Lord Voldemort himself. But keep defending how you were sorted, though.
9. Ravenclaw Nails
Ravenclaw’s color is blue, and it houses the smart, bookish type. The ones you would cheat off of in Potions class if that was possible.
10. Glamnetic Hogwarts Nails
11. Luna Lovegood Nails
The beet is a nice touch that only the real ones will get. Or the farmers.
12. Hogwarts Scarf Manicure
Something no one talks about is how once you’re sorted into a house, your fashion is determined for the next seven years of your life. You better hope pink isn’t your color.
13. Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean Nails
These are some of the most creative Harry Potter nails we’ve seen yet. True fans will get the nod, while others will think you’re really into beans. They are the musical fruit, to be fair.
14. Winter Hogwarts Nails
All is calm, all is bright. Until Voldemort comes back and decides to attack a bunch of children because he’s mad about his nose.
15. Hogwarts Professor Nails
Oh no, my Professor McGonagall nail chipped! It couldn’t have been Snape, huh?
16. Patronus Nail Design
These Prisoner of Azkaban inspired nails feature Harry’s stag patronus and other ghostly apparitions. Don’t stare into the glossy reflection for too long or otherwise you’ll get scared.
17. Harry Potter Nail Design
The gang’s all here! Hermione, Ron, the Boy Who Lived, and some scary footprints that definitely need nowhere good.
18. Marauder’s Map Nails
If you solemnly swear you’re up to no good, your nail tech can give you these nails. If you see a guy named Peter pop up though, you should tell someone. Like your husband Peter.
19. Platform 9¾ Nails
These Harry Potter nails just ooze nostalgia to us. The red, the gold, the bird staring at us intently as we do our homework. No one else had that experience?
20. Pink and Green Harry Potter Nails
When you can’t decide if you want to live life on the bright side or the dark side. Just avoid the one where the Mojo Dojo Case House is.
21. Golden Snitch Nails
Are these the most practical nails for things like putting your hands in your pocket or washing your hair? No. Are they a great makeshift weapon in a pinch? They don’t look that sharp, so also no. But they’re cute!
22. Death Eater Nails
The side of evil is always represented using black and grey. It’s like no one’s ever worn black before. It’s a flattering color!
23. Hogwarts Houses Manicure
If the Sorting Hat couldn’t decide which house you belong in, this manicure does the trick. Four times as magical? We’ll take it.
24. Harry Potter Manicure
Today we realized the Hogwarts houses are all primary colors except for Slytherin. They just have to be different.
25. Blue HP Nails
You could go so far as to call these Cho Chang nails, since she was the Seeker for the Ravenclaw Quidditch team. If everything we said just sounded made up, you’re due for a watch party.
26. Sparkly Striped Nails
These nails look like delicious lollipops, but they’re not. Did you hear us? They’re not. Stop licking our hand.
27. Bejeweled Hogwarts Nails
The best way we can describe this 3D manicure is that it looks like something Griphook the goblin would betray you to steal. We mean that as the highest form of praise.
28. Hermione and Luna Press-Ons
Luna and Hermione were never besties in the book, but you can force them into companionship by wearing them on your hands. Unless they start a whole Left Twix, Right Twix battle.
29. Midnight Blue Harry Potter Mani
If Harry Potter was a Taylor Swift album, he would be Midnights, so we especially love this manicure. Why, you ask? You’re On Your Own, Kid? Karma? Vigilante Sh*t? We could say more, but we don’t need to.
30. Glittery Hedwig Nails
Hedwig deserved better. We just made ourselves cry all over again.
31. Yule Ball Nails
Some of the more niche Harry Potter nails we’ve seen so far, these feature Hermione’s dress and Ron’s dress robes from the movies. We’ve always wanted that dress, and now it’s ours. In a size ringfinger.
32. Severus Snape Nails
These nails are a huge spoiler to anyone who hasn’t finished the series, but really though, that’s on you. You still haven’t finished? After all the time?
33. Long Harry Potter Nails
Look, we get that Dobby wouldn’t be the cutest nail accessory, but he deserved some representation and we’re glad these nails gave him that.
34. Hufflepuff Badger Nail Design
Playing favorites? Us? No way! It’s just that Hufflepuffs are motivated by kindness and friendship, and they also have the best snacks. But like, go Gryffindor, right?
35. Valentine’s Day Quidditch Nails
Lavender Brown would go crazy for these Valentine’s Day nails. Too bad Won-Won wasn’t all that good at catching.
