Game of Thrones: House Martell

“Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.”

House Martell of Sunspear rules the Dornish lands. I painted a snake skin pattern on my nails with the Martell sigil on my accent nail. The snake skin is reference to Oberyn Martell’s nickname of the “Red Viper.” I decided to go with a gold/brown color palette for the snake skin because the Dornishmen are known to wear light armor embellished with copper, shining silver, or soft red and gold.

I used piCture pOlish “Solar Flare” for shading on the scales. “Solar Flare” is a multi-chrome that shifts from copper to yellow-green to light gold to maroon depending on the angle and light source. I felt it worked really well on top of a gold base because it almost disappears when I hold my hands up at one angle, but then at another angle you can see the detailing of the snake skin.
