Easy Harry Potter Themed Nails with Hogwarts Nail Polish

Share this post:

Every Harry Potter fan who also loves beauty will adore these easy Harry Potter-themed nails with nail polish inspired by the four Hogwarts houses.

Harry Potter manicures

This is a blog where books meet lifestyle, and I can't think of any better pairing than this!

The focus here is to keep it simple and easy to DIY your Harry Potter-inspired nail designs at home with my favorite nail products from Olive & June.

So, if you are looking for super intricate nail art designs (like nail wraps) for your Harry Potter nails, I recommend you browse Etsy instead. Or, create your own art with Olive & June's nail art brush set.

What I'm going to do is show you how to mix and match Olive & June nail polish colors to create Harry Potter nail ideas you'll love that reflect the four Hogwarts houses and even more from the wizarding world.

But first, why Olive & June nail polish?

I love Olive & June products so much that I am an ambassador for them, and they are consistently one of the top-selling brands on my blog each month.

They are known for creating nail polish that actually LASTS (it's also clean, vegan, and cruelty-free), and their manicure system and pedicure system have all the tools and resources you need to truly create salon-quality manicures at home. I'm telling you, it's addictive and so soothing!

Harry Potter-Themed Nails for Hogwarts Houses

Below are my Olive & June nail polish recommendations for easy Harry Potter themed nails based on the four Hogwarts houses.

They would look great with Harry Potter scarves featuring the same colors and would even make a great gift for a Harry Potter fan! You can wear these colors for Halloween, a visit to a Harry Potter exhibit, and beyond!

Gryffindor Nails

Gryffindor is the Hogwarts house of Harry, Hermione, and Ron, known for wizards who are brave and daring. Its house colors are red and gold, connected to the element of fire.

My Gryffindor nail polish recommendations from Olive & June are:

  • Cozy Up: warm brick red with a touch of brown
  • OJBH: opaque 24-karat liquid gold

Hufflepuff Nails

Hufflepuff is the Hogwarts house of Cedric Diggory and Nymphadora Tonks, known for wizards who value hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play. Its house colors are yellow and black, connected to the elements of wheat and soil.

My Hufflepuff nail polish recommendations from Olive & June are:


Slytherin Nails

Slytherin is the Hogwarts house of Draco Malfoy, known for wizards who value ambition, leadership, self-preservation, cunning, and resourcefulness. Its house colors are green and silver, connected to the element of water.

My Slytherin nail polish recommendations from Olive & June are:


Ravenclaw Nails

Ravenclaw is the Hogwarts house of Mister Ollivander or Luna Lovegood, known for wizards who value intelligence, knowledge, curiosity, creativity, and wit. Its house colors are blue and bronze, connected to the element of air.

My Ravenclaw nail polish recommendations from Olive & June are:


More Harry Potter-Themed Nails

For even more nail ideas based on significant colors from the Harry Potter book set and movie series, consider the following:

Rubeus Hagrid's first name means "red," a color of passion and emotion. I recommend the shade CV for a classic cherry red or the shade SC for a deeper burgundy.

Albus Dumbledore's first name means "white," a color of spirituality. I recommend the shade HD for a crisp and clean bright white. (It also works for Hedwig!)

You can use OJBH (liquid gold) not just for Gryffindor nails, but also for the famed golden snitch.

And E+M (deep black) works not just for Hufflepuff nails, but also anything related to the dark arts and the deathly hallows.

(As a reminder, you can even create your own art like a golden snitch with Olive & June's nail art brush set.)


Those are all my best recommendations for easy, DIY Harry Potter-themed nails with Ollive & June nail polish.
