It's another Thursday and time for more Peculiar Polish! Nev from Nevorpurify's Nail Art is helping me out by designing looks that are more obscure cartoon characters. If you have a suggestion for her, just fill out the embedded form at the bottom of the page!
|Maleficent is the villainess in Disney's adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. She sometimes takes the form of a dragon - one of the coolest dragon designs in animation! I'm happy that Eva suggested this tutorial, because two of my favorite nail artists have previously done Maleficent nail designs, so I feel honored to offer my take on the character (check out Robin Moses's here and Sonoma Nail Art's here).|
|Sorry about the orientation, I tried to no avail to fix it without success. Start out with grey nails.|
|Add on darker grey blobs. To preserve the shape of Maleficent's face begin by only outlining her face. Outline the dragon in black as well.|
|Detail Maleficent's face by adding eyebrows and a nose. Just below her eyebrows add in light purple eyeshadow.|
|Give the dragon a nose, eyes, and stripes on her belly. Conclude with Maleficent's eyes, lips, and use light grey to stripe her horns.|
