Happy New Year guys! I’ve loved the Harry Potter books ever since my best friend called me, excited, and told me about a book she found about a boy who could do magic. That was years ago. Of course she was talking about Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone [link]. It stands out in my memory because Harry Potter sounded like a name that I had heard before. Strange fact: my cousin had asked me the same thing a few years later (doesn’t Harry Potter sound like a person you have heard of before?) Naturally, when I heard there was a new Harry Potter book, I had to get it. I didn’t get a look at it before I bought it and was immediately inspired by the jacket design. Of course I had to do a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child nail art.
However, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 & 2 [Link] is not a favorite of mine like books 1-7 written by J. K. Rowling herself. My review and opinion of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is at the end (SPOILERS).
Links to most of the nail polishes and all of the brushes I used are below the video.

How do you like my Harry Potter and the cursed child nail art?
These are the nail polishes that I used to get this look, in the order of use in the video:

These are the nail art brushes I used to get this look. I used in the black brush to paint in the main details and the pink fine line brush to add details to the bottom of the nest.
I did the nest and the wings based on the gold image on the black book below:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review
I do not think that Albus Potter is as likable as a protagonist as his father Harry Potter was. Maybe this is because he seems to be in constant conflict with his father Harry Potter who is truly the reason I like the Harry Potter books and to be in conflict with the Beloved Harry Potter is a no-no. Maybe it’s because he was sorted into Slytherin and the house is generally disliked by every other person. Whatever the reason, the Albus Potter we were introduced to on the platform nine and three quarters does not seem like the Albus Potter we come to know in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Time traveling always has me very confused. I can’t even keep up in the Flash. Albus Potter’s travels into the past don’t seem possible based on what happened when Harry and Hermione travel in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban [link]. Specifically, Harry, Ron and Hermione heard the thud of an axe and Hagrid’s yell in the present. Based on these seemingly ominous sounds, they assumed that Buckbeak was killed. However, when Harry and Hermione travel into the past, Macnair does hit the fence with the axe and Hagrid does let out a yell of elation. So those things did happen based on Harry and Hermione’s changes to the past. In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child [link], Albus made appearances in the past and there is no indication in books 1 to 7 that he would have. Did I mention that time traveling always me very confused? I did?
I also miss JK Rowling’s humor and in depth description of every emotion. Being familiar with script writing, I know that you can’t put everything in it as you would in a novel, so I’m fine with that. Last year I read over books 1 to 7 three times! However, I have no intention of ever reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child again. If you like to collect things and want to make your series complete, like me, then Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be a great addition to the collection, as it was to mine. It’s always great to be plunged right back into Harry Potter’s World and that makes it a good read!
