Digit-al Dozen DOES Recreation Week - Jacki's Maleficent

Hi Goddesses

If you read this blog a lot, you'll know that Jacki from Adventures In Acetone is my favourite blogger.  I love her skills so much, and I love that although she does things I could never hope to match, she also does some things that I feel I could copy.

This mani came from Fairytales Week, a theme I really struggled with, and when I first saw it I kicked myself over how brilliantly she had translated a film and a fairytale into very groovy nail art.

The inspiration is Maleficent and her thorns, and the composition is relatively simple - gradient, thorns, and then that damn horny hat.

My excution isn't perfect, but I would be totally happy with these nails if Jacki's version didn't exist lol.  There are a couple of things I am not happy with - I wish I had gone with a darker green, my thorns are a bit whispy, and yes I had difficulty with that hat.

For my mani I used 2 Girly Bits polishes - It's Hoop To Be Square and Get Indie Flow.  You can check Jacki's original out HERE.
