Easter of Thrones
It's Easter! Which can only mean one thing... Game of Thrones is back for 10 short weeks of the year! This is by far my favourite show currently on TV, therefore I always look forward to this time of year, especially now that I've read enough of the books to know what's going to happen this season (don't worry I'm not one of those smug readers who gives away all the spoilers).
So to celebrate the return of this awesome show I've painted my nails with the accessories or clothing of nine different characters.
On my left hand I have 'GoT' in the Game of Thrones font, Melisandre's necklace, Jon Snow's wolf pommel, Tywin Lannister's Hand of the King broach and Arya Stark's sword, Needle. On my right hand I have Danaerys Stormborn's necklace, Littlefinger's mocking jay broach, Margaery Tyrell's embroidered dress and rose belt, Davos Seaworth's pouch which contains his fingers and Joffrey's crown.
With my GoT nail I wanted the replicate the style of the Season 3 DVD box so I painted it with a white base coat, then I used a soft brush to stipple a light grey colour, then more white over the grey until it had the right texture and colour (it's all about layering). I then painted the letters using black to start with before going over with my Barry M metallic silver to create a 3D look. Also you may notice the Tywin nail has a slight crimson look, I used a black base then painted over with a layer of OPI German-icure for a dark red tint to get a nice dark Lannister colour.
Only two episodes in to the new season so far and already it's proving to be the best season yet. If the books are anything to go by, they have a lot to fit into this season and I can't wait to see how it all plays out!
