Winter Is Coming

Happy Friday everyone! Did you guess today's theme from the title? I know you did, I just couldn't help myself. GAME OF THRONES NAILS!

This past week I've been re-watching season two of the show and of course it inspired some nail art finally. I really wanted to go re-read the books from the beginning again but alas, they are in a box already and I only have the newest one on my e-reader. As far as nail art goes I'm late to the party as usual, it's Hunger Games all over again :P I'll let this little wolf howl for itself.

Polishes used:

  • Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
  • Essie Master Plan
  • Essie Blanc
  • DEB Store Brand Gun Madness
  • black acrylic paint

For this I went House Stark, cause I am from the north. The husbandguy says my dire wolf looks like a black blob but whatevs, I like how it turned out. I started with two coats of Master Plan and then sponged on Blanc and Gun Madness with some saran wrap. After that it was acrylic paint time for the wolf and some top coat. I am never disappointed by the saran wrap technique and in this case the colors I used made it look even more like marble. I keep putting my hand against different colored/textured things and thinking "damn these look cool" lol. Whenever I get settled and finally get a light box built I am redoing these because they deserve better pics. I am totally keeping this mani for as long as I can make it last, don't you just love those ones that just make you happy when you look down? What kind of looks have you guys done lately that just made you smile?


  1. These look cool despite the fact that I've never watched Game of Thrones!

    1. Thank you! I am loving my marble colored marble.

  2. LOL it looks nothing like a blob, he needs glasses - well painted :)

    1. Thanks! I showed him again when he wasn't tired and he agreed, it was not a blob lol.
