The Digit-al Dozen DOES Winter Wonderland, Day 1: Winter Is Coming

Good afternoon, readers! It's a new Digit-al Dozen nail art week and our theme is Winter Wonderland. I'm sure I'll have some cheerful winter/Christmas themed manis this week but today is something entirely different.

Are you a Game of Thrones fan? I pretty much can't hear anything about winter without thinking Winter is Coming. It's the motto for House Stark, and it's a reminder to be prepared for when winter arrives and hits their land the hardest. I've decided to recreate a wallpaper I found with the motto and their sigil of a direwolf.

If you aren't a GoT fan, here is the image I tried to recreate, so you are at least able to see what I was referring to:
  • I started out with a base of OPI Russian Navy Suede.
  • Next, I sponged some OPI Alpine Snow and then OPI Girls Love Diamonds.
  • I used a thin nail art brush and OPI Right Off The Bat for the details.
  • KBShimmer Clearly On Top was used to seal it in.
  • OPI Matte Top Coat was added last to take away the shine.

What do you think? Raise your hand if you are a Game of Thrones fan!! Thanks so much for reading! Come back tomorrow to see Day 2 of Winter Wonderland Week with The Digit-al Dozen!
