Mother of Dragons

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know I am slightly obsessed with Game of Thrones.  I just caught up with the show this past weekend, and have recently started reading the books.  If you’re a fan, you know that you must choose a House, and I am definitely Team Targaryen.  Danaerys is totally badass (and definitely going to end up on the Iron Throne), and I thought I’d pay tribute to her, the “mother of dragons,” with a dragon scale mani.  It is almost as badass as Dany.

There are already quite a few tutorials on dragon scale nails, so if you’re interested, you can easily look them up.  Basically, what I did was quickly apply two coats of Essie Dive Bar, and then I used a straight pin to scratch the outline of the scales.  You have to work kind of fast, but it’s totally worth it.  Bonus: these are textured, so they’re definitely on-trend right now.  I skipped the topcoat to keep the cool, scaly texture.

You might remember me previously mentioning Game of Thrones in my post on Dollish Polish Cold Winds are Rising, which you can check out here.

So tell me, which House are you?

P.S. Without giving away any spoilers, how insane were the last two episodes? I just finished watching them and while there weren’t really any major cliffhangers, I need to know what happens next!  So good!

  1. This is lovely…I am not into all the fantasy genera that is so popular now – but this design and the shade you used has an appeal beyond just ‘dragon scale’ looking. It’s quite classy I think.
