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.
