Pampered Polishes Nail Lacquer - Game of Thrones Inspired Collection Part I (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have a collection from Pampered Polishes Nail Lacquer to share with you! If you didn't already know, the brain behind this brand is Timberlin of @pamperedpolishes, who is a nail art and swatching extraordinaire herself! Be sure to check her out on Instagram!

Now onto the polishes!

Daenerys is a lovely frosty pink crelly filled with red and gold microflakes. This is completely opaque in two to three coats. For my photos I did three thinner coats plus topcoat. This is just a tad brush strokey, so if that bothers you, you could always sponge on the last coat. I really love how the flakes give it sort of a speckled appearance!

Lannister is a beautiful medium yellow jelly filled with silver shimmer! Here I did three coats plus topcoat. As you can see it's not quite totally opaque, but being a jelly, this is normal. If you prefer a more opaque look, you could layer this over a similar base color. I tend to have a lot of staining from yellows, so I am happy to report I had none with this one. This was also one of my surprise favs!

Littlefinger is a gorgeous teal green creme filled with a super pale, almost white, shimmer! Fantastic formula that needed just two coats plus topcoat.

Stark is a dusty, medium blue filled with a beautiful purple shimmer. The shimmer was super hard to capture on camera, but it is very apparent in real life. Here I did two coats plus topcoat! This one can also show a bit of brush strokes, so you'll want to be mindful of that when applying it.

Lady Melisandre is my fav of the collection! It's a chocolaty brown polish, with a bit of a burgundy undertone to it. It's also loaded with red and blue shimmer! Gorgeous gorgeous! Here I did two coats plus topcoat!

Beautiful collection! I truly loved them all and have already worn some of them a few times! These will be available in Pampered Polishes' shop on April 9th! Each polish will be sold for $9 USD each!
