Inspired by the popularity of Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, a lot of women are sporting dragon scale-inspired nails, making it the newest and hottest nail trend.

There are many ways you can turn your nails into dragon’s talons. You can do a layered dot technique, you can use a stencil for scales, or you can simply paint over fishnet stockings to create dragon scale-inspired nail art designs. You can also have your nails shaped like talons (pointed and sharp), just be careful not to prick anybody with your fierce nails.

Here’s a quick nail art tutorial inspired by dragon scales. You can change the nail polish colors for different effects.

Step 1: Apply base coat on your nails.
