Swatch: Fanchromatic Nails - Direwolf

Hello!

Any of you ASOIAF enthusiast like me? If you don't know what that is, you've probably heard the more famous series based on it that HBO had picked up, Game of Thrones. I am personally a sucker of epic fantasy series, especially the ones that are a bit gory (don't judge) .. so when I've heard about the show I immediately knew I'd be all over it.

Now, if my last post I've mentioned about my long term admiration obsession for Jason Momoa , ever since Junior High (13 years and going strong YAY!!!) and I swear to you, I had no idea he would be in this series...so imagine my face when I watched the Pilot episode and saw this,
HOT. DAMN.

To sum up, he was "Khal Drogo", a bad-ass warlord of Dothraki people, who are pretty much a race of warlike nomads and love to travel in hordes, do barbaric stuffs like raping women, beheading enemies and value their horses more than anything. He was their leader because he kicked so much asses and had this uber long hair because.
... yep.

So, as you would have guessed, I LOVE this show so much albeit the future existence of Jason Momoa, because the story is just simply amazing. Also if you haven't seen any of it and decide to do so, I'd suggest buying the Blu Ray because the commentary is SO DAMN WORTH IT!

Anyway, the nail polish I'm about to show you has nothing to do with Khal Drogo (I know, right?! What a waste of time...lol) but it's related to a beloved family up in the North who are fathered by Sean Bean (YES, he dies in this one too...spoiler alert!) called House of Stark. They're like this slightly dysfunctional family (only because the bastard son lives with them, and the mother hates his guts although she's relatively kind and mother-like) and I said "slightly" because although they possess such tragic fate, they're much better than other families...trust me. Their house sigil is Direwolf, an extinct gene of wolves which is pretty much like your regular gray wolves only much bigger and scarier.
...... I know. Look at this terrifying creature. Run for your life.
This nail polish is by Fanchromatic Nails on Etsy, called "Direwolf". A warm taupe polish with white, brown, black, and copper glitters.


Without further ado, the swatches!!!

It reminds me of kitchen countertop's granite :)
Now, unfortunately Fanchromatic Nails is closed at the moment due to the owner's health problem, but they should be open soon, so if you're interested go check them out on Etsy or Facebook for info and sales.

Btw the new season of Game of Thrones starts this Sunday on HBO and although I don't have HBO I'll be excitedly waiting and downloading it illegally. Shhh.
