Gina Girl, one of Maleficent’s shades in the recently released Disney villains 12-piece nail polish set by ELF (photos here), is the shade I’ve most recently tried from the collection. It features a transparent dark gray base filled with chunky glitter that ranges from purple to blue to gold. In an opaque 3-coat application, the overall color impression is a Crayola crayon purple. I do really enjoy how much it reminds me of Maleficent’s magic spells in Sleeping Beauty! I found this shade to be easy to work with, as it had a good amount of glitter with each swipe of the brush and each layer dried quickly, and while I felt like it looked pretty good with two coats, I added a third just because it was easy to do so.

Like Smoky Brown (photos here), this shade was also easy to remove from my skin using just my nails. In general, I find this helpful for cleaning up a messy application. This shade generally wore well, with damage appearing around the third day of wear with no protective top coat (typical for me, as I tend to be rough on my nails). It was, however, difficult to remove. After soaking my nails in nail polish remover, I ended up chipping away at the glitter with my nails. This resulted in clean nails with no leftover glitter bits.
