Smitten Polish Game of Thrones Duo

Good morning everyone! I'm back from my little break in posting! I got out of the Arizona heat for a short amount of time, and boy was it nice. Oh well, back to the oven now!

Today's post includes swatches of two beauties by Smitten Polish. They are both named after house words from Game of Thrones, a book series turned HBO series by George R. R. Martin. I've already seen the show and I just started reading the books, and I really love them both. I won't say anything else about it cause I don't want to spoil anything! On to the polish...


First we have Fire and Blood. It's a beautiful and rich red jelly with a few different glitters suspended in it. It's surprisingly opaque while still retaining it's jellylike nature -- I only needed 2 coats here for full opacity. I thought the formula was great, it applied beautifully, and the glitter behaved well. It really lights up in person as the glitters catch the light.




Winter is Coming is a semi-sheer white based polish with royal blue glitters. For this swatch I've used 3 coats. I love the look of this one. It's kind of like peppermint gum or something, though you shouldn't tell House Stark that I said so. The small blue flecks are interesting. They aren't regular micro glitter; rather, they look like little shavings or shards or something. Again, I had no problems with formula or with the glitter.




What do you guys think? I love these together as a pair because they are so different. I think they really accurately represent their namesakes, too.

Smitten Polish is available on Etsy. You can also find Smitten Polish on Facebook, and Noelie also has a blog where you can see more of her polish creations.

  1. Oh wow, they are both awesome! And I love the idea of a white jelly with coloured glitter--it's so different and it's the look I usually achieve with white jelly + a clear-based glitter, but all in one!

  2. Oooh I love both of those, especially Fire and Blood. I love Game of Thrones too! I've only seen the first series, but I am now addicted :)

  3. I love the Song of Fire and Ice series! I'm 20 pages from finishing the 4th book (shouldn't have waited so long to read it, cause I don't remember parts of the previous books), and can't wait, cause it was kinda boring.

    Fire and Blood is stunning! Absolutely stunning!

  5. I LOVE Winter Is Coming!!! SO gorgeous. Needneedneed.
    I haven't read the books yet, but I'm obsessed with the TV show, and the GoT dress up game on DollDivine. Yes, I know, sad. But do I care? Nope :D

  6. OMG. Want.
    I did my own interpretation of "winter is coming" once, but it was a grey gradient with silver sparkles. These are awesome.

    PS - I just finished reading a Dance with Dragons a few months ago. You will be dying for book #6 SOON. Can't put em down. The show is a good holdover during the time it will take GRRM to finish it.

  18. Cute! Very appropriately named. :) I love the HBO series & I've only read the first book so far. I need to get back on track so that I read the books before the scenes happen in the show! For some reason it works better with that formula - read, then watch, instead of watch, then read. :)
