Greetings from the Dark Side!
This week is Week 1 in my October Series Challenge and the inspiration is Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. I have been trying to think of what eye look I wanted to create, and I thought I should also do something with my nails that matched Maleficent. I wanted to try to do something different with my nails and I was inspired by Maleficent's green flames to create this sort of gradient nail look.
This was my first time ever tying out the gradient effect, and I messed up a lot! I am pretty terrible with nail art, so go easy on me! But I still really like the way it came out. It looks so appropriate for Halloween! I used Sinful Colors 'Irish Green' and and NYC black nail polish. I added two coats of my Out the Door top coat as well.
I think if I do this again, I would add a dark purple with lines (the underside of the dragon's belly). I think I also need a green that is more yellow!
