This post is dark and full of spoilers. And also full of photos and gifs because I can.

So, if you haven’t seen the season finale of season 6 for Game of Thrones, turn back now. You’ve been warned.


Back in July, Literary Lacquers teamed up with the lovely Cate C., who is the green lover behind @allthegreenpolish on Instagram to create this goooorgeous green. It’s inspired by Wildfire from the books, and show, and Cersei’s revenge at the end of season 6.

Also, if you’re a fan of World of Warcraft, it’s the PERFECT color to represent felfire. I don’t have any characters with any of the fel-green, but one of my guildies, Celti, has a lock with some righteous green goodness. LOOOOK.


And there’s also this gorgeous mount that was an achievement award. I have a mighty mighty need.

Before we get into the photos, here’s the description from LL’s etsy shop for Long May She Reign:

“Screaming chartreuse jelly polish packed with gold holographic microglitter, best at three thin coats”

Does that not fit the gif and photo above perfectly? I’m amazed that it’s so damn spot on. Indies are fantastic, seriously.

My photos show the polish with two thin coats (which fully covered any VNL that may have shown!) plus top coat. It’s electrifying.

And my favorite thing about this polish?

It only needed one coat of top coat to level out any sort of texture the glitter may have caused!

I seriously love how vibrant this is, and how strong the gold is that comes through. I need a backup bottle. Or six. And also to convince the nerds to let me paint their nails with it. Yes. Good.

It’s just so glorious, that even as someone that doesn’t care for green polish (Cate, I love you don’t kill me pls <3), I’m thrilled with my purchase, and I can see myself wearing it often. NAIL ART FOR THE SEASON 7 PREMIER. YES. It’s happening.

If you wish to snag your very own bottle of Long May She Reign, you can find it here. You’re going to want it, I promise.


And now for the links!


Hokay, now back to WoW and pizza and pretending I don’t have to go back to work tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

  1. The WoW felfire reference makes me feel like we are soul sisters now haha. Oh my gosh I am so close to getting that damn mount! I need a swatching break to level my toons. And now I need this polish cause I cannot see it without thinking of felfire now, haha.

    1. Waaaait, did I know that you play? THAT’S SO COOL. If I did already, my b. My brain is a potato. I’m always on if you ever wanna run some stuff! :D

  2. I loved green polish once upon a time and got away from it. They all just got kinda bland. This totally changes my mind. Totally need this. It’s perfect.
