People who can paint tiny pictures on fingernails never cease to amaze me. These brightly colored nails featuring The Simpsons were shown off by the nail salon Avarice in Japan. Apparently, they focus on creating unique nail art for their customers. The fingers on these lucky hands feature Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. I can only assume Homer is on the thumbnails. That, or he’s out getting a pack of Duff Beer.

Etsy shop dalilicequeen knows we all have our fandoms and most of us refuse to love just one, so she’s made this ultimate Fandom Necklace so we can keep what we love best close to our hearts.
The neat thing here is that, while this one is for the Harry Potter/Doctor Who/Sherlock fans, she has many other combinations available and you can even request your own custom version.
Superwholockian here. How about you?

Carefully painting your nails isn’t the only way to do nail art; you can also use decals! Blogger Break Rules Not Nails created these gorgeous detailed Game of Thrones designs by using fake nails and water slide decal paper. I dig the classy and smooth look, and though it’s probably just as time consuming to design and print the stickers, it’s got to be easier than trying to “paint” with fingernail polish.
She filed the nails to a pointy tip and carefully applied the house sigils. Anyone can buy water slide decal paper and use it with your home printer.
Prepare yourself: leggings are coming. Black Milk Clothing has teased their Game of Thrones line, and they’re off to a splendid start. Gaze at the above picture and behold the Rhaegal dragon egg leggings! The pattern was modeled after Dany’s dragon eggs that we got know way back in season one. My, how far we’ve come.
Black Milk also announced the release date for the Game of Thrones collection: March 11 at 9am AEST. Get your fingers and wallets ready because when Black Milk releases new lines, you click or you die. Okay, it’s not that dramatic, but if you don’t click, you may be out of luck. I predict their offerings will go out the door faster than ravens fly.

Graphic designer Michael Allen appreciates facial hair. In fact, you could say that he’s somewhat of an expert in the art of the chin whiskers. Building on years of studying everything that makes beards cool, Allen created his own unique beard-y alphabet–called Alphabeard Beardface–as an homage to… all things beard? Anyway, in order to create the alphabet, Allen had to photograph beards at various stages of growth to make each letter. “Many beards have been sacrificed for this project,” said Allen. But in the end, I have to say, it was totally worth it.
