Monday, 1st April saw the premiere of the third season of Game of Thrones. I thought I'd do a manicure inspired by the series as these books are incredibly dear to my heart.
I just went with the simplest theme of ice and fire (I'll leave the sigils to more talented people than I).
All nails have a base coat of GOSH matt top coat and two coats of China Glaze's fast drying top coat.
On my thumb, middle and pinky finger I have:
1st coat: Model's Own Snow White
Ombre: Model's Own Blueberry Muffin, Barry M's Hi Jelly Shine Blueberry and China Glaze Fancy Pants
Stamping: Art Deco White Stamping polish
Highlight: You're a Star by Nicole by O.P.I.
On my forefinger and ring finger I have:
1st coat: Rimmel's 405 Fantasy Minerals range
Flames: Rimmel's 324 Fever, Unnamed orange colour from Front Cover and a Yellow stamping polish from MoYou
The gradient isn't a new technique to me but the flames are. This hadn't turned out as well as I'd had hoped but I was quite eager to give the flames technique a go and hopefully I'll get better.
Next year hopefully I'll be able to be more arty.
Have you done a manicure inspired by books or a film or telly series. I'd love to see them.
P.S. As requested a closer close-up of the nails. (I think they probably look better from a little bit further away :p)
