I am a huge fan of Game of Thones (both the books and the movies) and I am crazy excited for the start of season five today! I usually end up missing the opportunity to do nail art for the premiere, but not this time! (I did use a GoT-themed polish two years ago.) I put together some nail art based off of this season five poster, and added in a nod to my favorite house (partially because the season slogan – Vengeance is Coming – wouldn’t fit on my nails).
I used OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy? as the base for all the black nails, and Cult Cosmetics El Matador as the base on the red accent nail. The Game of Thrones logo was painted with OPI Haven’t the Foggiest – I love that it’s a darker silver, but still sparkly. For the rose, I used white acrylic paint (and a bit of black mixed in for shading) and Essie Head Mistress for the Blood. The Targaryen house motto – Fire and Blood – was painted with black acrylic paint. And the silver triangle studs are from Bundle Monster. I topped it all off with OPI Matte Topcoat.
I am completely obsessed with how these turned out! Acrylic paint is definitely upping my nail art game. I’ve been practicing with painting words on my nails, but this is the first time I’ve attempted a script, and I’m honestly really surprised it doesn’t look like a huge blob. If only I was ambidextrous…
I haven’t made it all the way through the books yet, so I’m not sure what to expect this season, but I can’t wait! Let me know what you’re most excited about for this season in the comments below! I’m definitely ready for some more Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow.
