Cold Winds are Rising

Many of you probably already know that yesterday was the season 3 premier of Game of Thrones.  I finally started watching the show last year, and I am obsessed.  I am so glad it’s back!  So I thought it was the perfect time to break out my GoT-themed nail polish, Dollish Polish Cold Winds are Rising.

Cold Winds are Rising is a grey jelly polish with different sizes of teal glitter.  Some of the pieces are holographic, too (you can see that in the bottle in the above pic).  It definitely reminds me of a grey version of Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum.  Application was good – I did need to add some thinner to it, but after that it was fine.  I used three coats here, trying to keep them as thin as possible (which wasn’t that easy).

I really love how the combination of the glitter and the base ends up looking like murky seawater.  Or rain.  Kind of perfect for a Game of Thrones polish that isn’t super dark, red, or gold.  I love it!

So… what house are you?  I’m kind of obsessed with House Targaryen (because Daenerys is totally badass), but I still have a soft spot for the Starks.

Also, keep an eye out for some Game of Thrones nail art.  Because I need to do it at some point, right?

Yo-ho Yo-ho A Pirate’s Life For Me

Yo-ho Yo-ho A Pirate’s Life For Me is a new-ish shade from Dollish Polish.  I grew up in Southern California, and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride is my second favorite (after the Haunted Mansion), so of course I had to have it.  I have a serious problem with buying polishes because of the name.  At least this one is gorgeous.

Yo-ho Yo-ho A Pirate’s Life For Me is a deep red jelly with (from what I can tell) silver, gold, red, pink, orange, and blue glitter.  It mostly just looks red with darkish glitter until the light hits it, and then all the colors come out.

Formula was actually really good, which is surprising for a shade like this.  I used two coats with topcoat, but I feel I should mention that it was smooth without the topcoat, which was really nice.

And here’s a micro shot of the bottle so you can see all the different colors:

I believe Yo-ho Yo-ho A Pirate’s Life For Me is still available from the Dollish Polish Big Cartel store.  It’s definitely an unexpected favorite for me, and I’m really glad I decided to buy this!
