Game of Thrones Heart Tree Manicure

So, do you guys watch Game of Thrones? It's on its second season now and we are die hard fans. In fact, I've read all the books and they were impossible to put down. The characters are awesome. So, lately I've been deep into season two and, for those of you who are familiar with the story, I'm nostalgic about the beginning of the first book/season one, when the Starks were all still together in Winterfell (sad face).

For those of you who don't know, the Godswood is a private wooded area where people who pray to Old Gods worship and find solitude. The trees in the Godswood have deep red maple-style leaves and white-ish bark. In the centre of the Godswood stands an old weirwood tree, the heart tree, with a face carved into it with red sap giving the appearance of tears of blood. Super spooky right? Well...manicure inspiration!

The face!

For this manicure, I used Rimmel's French Manicure Pro in French Ivory because I didn't want to use a flat white and this one is slightly milky and transparent.
For the leaves and blood/sap, I used China Glaze's China Rouge.
For the rest of the details I used Deborah Lippmann's Waking up in Vegas and Fade to Black. Check it out!(It might even be able to double as a spooky Canada day
