Inspired By...Game of Thrones (House of Black and White)

Now that the new series of Game of Thrones is WELL under way (I'm writing this on Sunday night and I'm aware that something HUGE happens at the end of the next episode but no talk of it from me!) I thought it was high time I get cracking with even more Game of Thrones nail art.  If you haven't already checked them out, you can see my other GoT inspired designs here.  For today's post, I took inspiration from the storyline I think will be the most exciting (and the cast seem to agree) and that is Ayra and the Faceless men.  So come and check out my interpretation of the House of Black and White and of course Valar Morghulis...

So if you're a fan of the show, you can probably tell that I took direct inspiration from the front door of the House of Black and White which you can see here.  I really wanted to get the 3-D effect of the door so created the shadow and highlight effect by mixing some colours to make very subtle shades.  I did the detailing with my usual detailing brush then used a dotter to create the metallic studs.  Finally, I used Barry M nail art pens to write the well known Faceless Men phrase 'Valar Morghulis'.  I would have loved to squeezed Valar Doharis on the nail as well but my pens weren't cooperating!

Anywho, a bit of a brief but fun post for you guys (I hope).  I hope you guys enjoy reading this posts as much I love creating the nail art for them.  If you have any suggestions about more Game of Thrones inspired nail art then be sure to comment below and make sure to follow me on all of the social media sites below, until next time!

  1. Great nail art! The color scheme and the 3d effect is so cool.
    And don't worry, even Valar Morgulis wouldn't fit my short nubs. :D
    I would love to see something in the gold-yellow-blue color scheme of the Sons of the Harpy. :)


I love any and all comments on my blog...except spam, no one likes that, so don't be that guy!
