Can I use a 8pin Pci-e adapter on a 6pin PSU wire

I recently replaced my GTX 1050 Ti with a Xtreme GTX 1080. I realized after installing it that my PSU only had a 6pin wire for the GPU. I bought an adapter which i was gonna use until I could afford a new PSU but the adapter is an 8 pin - 2x 8pin. Can I plug my 6 pin PSU plug into the 8 pin adaptor or is it unsafe? Let me know if that was a bit confusing
