You know me, I always have to go in rainbow order so we are starting with The Night Is Dark and Full of Terrors.  It's a glittery red that shines like the red ruby at Melisandre's throat.  Sadly there are no anti-aging properties in this polish, wah.  This color is blingy and gorgeous and perfectly captures Melisandre.  Formula and application were both wonderful.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.

Dracarys is a gorgeous, flame inspired orange.  It's as bright as the fire unleashed by Daenery's dragons.  She's actually my favorite character in the show, she's such a Boss Babe!  This was also probably one of my favorite shades in the collection too, coincidence?  Again, a nice formula with an easy-peasy application.  Full coverage in 3 coats and topcoat to finish it up.

Gold Shall Be Their Crowns is a gorgeous golden yellow full of gold holo glitter.  It's inspired by the fierce Lannisters and their love for gold.  Just look at Jamie Lannister's gold armor!  Aside from not being a fan of this house, I am a big fan of the color!  Yellow just makes me happy.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.

I Want To Be The QUEEN pays tribute to the green and gold colors of House Tyrell and Queen Margaery.  This is pretty much the most perfect green ever.  Formula and application were both spectacular.  I used 3 coats (don't forget I paint with thin coats) and topcoat.

Wight Eyed Walkers is a scary polish.  Well, it's not scary, but it's inspiration is very scary.  This is a steely blue, reminiscent of the Night King's eyes.  Brrrr, I'm cold looking at that picture!  Even the polish gives you the chilly feel!  The silver holo glitters really add a nice touch of sparkle.  Fantastic formula and application.  3 coats plus topcoat.

Here is The Purple Wedding.  The number 1 thing I think of with this polish is King Joffrey is a total jerk.  Plus just look at the picture!  Who does that?!  Anyways, big momentous wedding deserved a polish too.  This is a medium shade of purple full of silver holo glitters.  It's lovely.  I used 3 coats for full coverage.  1 layer of topcoat.

And last but not least is Winter Is Coming.  I think people that don't watch the show know this catch phrase for the show.  This grey with silver holo is as Stark as it gets.  But I really just think of Jon Snow when I hear this phrase so you get a picture of him.  He's so broody and cute, don't you think?  Anywho, this grey is really beautiful.  It's a nice medium tone, not too dark, and the silver holo glitters bring it to life.  Formula and application were both aces.  Topcoat used.

I did a little nail art too!  An easy gradient with The Night Is Dark and Full Of Terrors, Dracarys and Gold Shall Be Their Shrouds.  I used a damp cosmetic wedge to apply the 3 colors, lightly bouncing the sponge on my nails.  I love how it turned out! I finished with top coat.
