"Game of Thrones" Nail Art

Hello darlings, it's on tonight and I'm waiting in anticipation! Game of Thrones returns in just a few hours on HBO and I've put my hands to good use just in time. So here's my latest, hand-painted "winter"-themed -- dragon-inspired -- blood spilling -- throne-overthrowing NAIL ART, just for all my G.O.T. geeks & fans. I know there are a lot of us out there, so let's celebrate tonight!!

Inspired by none other than the best show that's currently on American television, Game of Thrones, I tackled this nail art one nail at a time. There are a few repeating themes, but for the most part, each nail is unique and stand-alone. I won't lie, this design took me about 3 hours to complete, not counting prep time and photo shooting. Hence, it's kinda my baby. I'm the mother of these dragon fingers ;)

Some designs are quite literal, like the embroidery pattern I copied off Cersei's dress coat (left pinky) or the dragon's eye I got off a poster, while others are more abstract like the dragon's eggs, which could also be seen as the dragons' scales or body armor worn by a lot of the characters. My left ring finger design started off as armor, but evolved into the idea of the throne, represented by glittery / scaly gold and depicted using round glitter spangles. I also incorporated the idea of the inferno on my right thumb, which could also be seen as blood splatter, fire, etc. Lastly, I painted several swords on my middle fingers and left thumb to hint at the Game Of Thrones logo.

I used a ton of different polishes / nail art spangles / rhinestones: use code MARYAMNYC to save 15% on all polishes from HB Beauty Bar (OPI, China Glaze, Nubar)
Enjoy it darlings!!
