A Happy Halloween Giveaway!

I bet you all thought I forgot, didn’t you?  Well, truth be told I did intend for this to be posted a week ago.  But it’s here now!

As I hinted on Facebook, my October giveaway is both my own frankens, and it’s with a Harry Potter theme.  Even though I made these with Halloween in mind, they’re certainly not polishes you can only wear on Halloween!

I’m going to be giving away 1 full set of my Potions 101 trio, which is comprised of Wolfsbane Potion, Polyjuice Potion, and Draught of Living Death.  Hopefully someone can give them a good home!

 

Now, I know the question will come up- no, I don’t have extras to sell. I’m sorry!  I do this for fun as a hobby, and I made a handful of these for myself, a couple of friends, and then you guys!   And sadly I used up all of the pigments I had for each color making my bottles.

On to descriptions!

Wolfsbane Potion: this potion relieves the symptoms of lycanthropy.  The only canon evidence of it’s appearance that I could find was that it exuded a faint blue smoke, so I took that and ran with it.  I used a black jelly base to represent night, and added a blue color shifting pigment, and blue-purple micro flakes to represent that smoke.

Polyjuice Potion: this potion is well used throughout the Harry Potter series that is used to allow the drinker to assume the form of someone else.  Before the final ingredient- a bit of the person you want to turn into- is added, Polyjuice Potion looks like dark, thick mud.  After the final ingredient, it takes on a look representative of the person (the potion used to make everyone look like Harry in Book 7, for instance, was a golden color).  My particular polish is inspired by the first time we saw Polyjuice Potion- when it was used to make Ron and Harry look like Crabbe and Goyle.  ‘Overcooked cabbage’ and ‘boogies’ were used in the description, which makes me think of green.  So Polyjuice Potion is a brown polish filled with a green color shifting pigment and green micro flakes.

Draught of Living Death: this is a sleeping potion that sends the drinker into a death-like slumber.  In the 6th book, the students are creating this during their first Potions lesson with Professor Slughorn, and while the potion will eventually turn clear as water, most students do not achieve this level of success.  The step before this turns the potion a lilac color, which was the inspiration for this one!  It’s a lilac colored jelly polish filled with a purple shifting pigment, fine iridescent glitter and iridescent squares.

Rules!
This giveaway will only be open until Friday at 11:59pm- so that’s 2 days.  You just have to follow me in some way to enter, though you can get up to 2 entries for Facebook follow AND another form.  Open internationally, 18+ (if younger, you can enter with parental permission).  I’ll be using Rafflecopter this time- I know there’s some ladies that can’t use Rafflecopter on their phone.  Simply email me (info at the top of the page) or message me via Facebook, and I can manually add your information.
