Our Words of Dumbledore collection is inspired by Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. I've read this series at least 4 times, and in the beginning, I LOVED Dumbledore. By the end of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, my feelings about him had definitely changed. Now that I've reread, lived with it, and gotten a little older, I appreciate how complicated he was as a character and sympathize with the difficult choices he had to make throughout his life. I could go on (and on, and on...) but I won't. :)
First of all, a warning... Some of the glitters in What Is Right started to curl. If you use 2-3 coats and a topcoat, the roughness is minimal, but still... We're only going to release the initial batch and will sell it at $9 per bottle. It will not be included in the full set option and when the batch sells out, it's going away. The rest are going into our permanent rotation.
After All This Time- Representing both Snape's Slytherin green and Lily Potter's green eyes, this green linear holo stunner with shifting UCC flakies is as timeless as his feelings for her. Buttery smooth and opaque in two coats. $12. Swatch by @kobra88.
I Do Love Knitting Patterns- This pale orchid creme is inspired by the robe Horace Slughorn is wearing in the living room scene where we first meet him. The scene is a complete joy to watch, and the polish is the same to apply. The multichrome shifting shimmer adds a lovely whimsical touch. Opaque in 2-3 coats. $12. Swatch by Ehmkay Nails.
It Is Our Choices- Dumbledore was quite the Gryffindor. There are many arguments that could be made about him, but his bravery is undeniable. This polish is a nod to his Hogwarts house. The red base has a strong gold flash, especially in extreme lights. It is highlighted with red-gold-yellow shifting UCC flakies. Opaque in two coats, this polish is $12. Swatch by @redheadnails.
Severus, Please- This polish is inspired by what is arguably the most shocking moment in the whole series. Atop the Astronomy Tower on a grey night, Albus makes one of the most difficult requests of his life. He pleads, and his request is carried out. A medium grey creme with blue and green shimmer. $12 and opaque in 2-3 coats. Swatch by @tanyatopia_too.
What Is Right- This blingy polish represents all of the joy that is Albus Dumbledore. Even when things were dire, he knew the importance of a lighthearted moment. This sheer beauty is a pinky purple like his robes with amazingly flashy holographic purple/blue shifting shards and blue iridescent flakies. This one looks best at 2-3 coats and can dry rough due to the amount of flakies. This can be helped with an extra coat of thick top coat. $9 (and only available in limited quantities.) Swatch by @redheadnails.
You Brave, Brave Man- This creamy white is inspired by the Kings Cross Station scene at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Such a difficult scene to read (and watch) as Dumbledore comes face to face with Harry after the battle that has been 17 years in the making. To be called a brave, brave man by Albus Dumbledore had to be quite a moment for Harry. The stark white of Harry's Kings Cross is highlighted by holo flakies. $12 and opaque in 2-3 coats. Swatch by @_always_polished_.
This collection releases Feb 28th at noon EST. The full set (minus What Is Right) will be available for $54 through 3/13/2020. Each polish will be $12 each except What Is Right, which will be $9 in very limited quantities. Which are on your list?
