NOTD: Maleficent's Flames

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!


  1. Wow that is really nice! Very creative! I love your blog by the way :) New follower


  2. You did an awesome job on the gradient! It really fits the theme. It took me forever to learn how to do gradients too and I'm still not that good at it.

  3. Awesome mani! I wish I could do gradients.
