Alice in Wonderland ManicureHappy Thursday everyone! I wish everyone a great day. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a nail art challenge inspired by Disney hosted by Rambles of a Polish Addict. I was SO excited when I saw this challenge because I have a secret love of Disney movies. I watched so many Disney movies as a kid and to this day still love them. Alice in Wonderland was never a favorite of mine, and to be honest, scared me as a kid. The things I do love about the movie are all of the bright colors in the tea party and the candies that Alice eats. I have a love for color and that was my inspiration for this manicure. I basically looked at my polish rack and picked every bright color I could find. For some reason when I pictured Alice in Wonderland I thought of black because of the dark themes throughout the movie. I actually really loved how it turned out so without further ado....
I started with base coats of the following colors: China Glaze Shocking Pink, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Wet N Wild Sunny Side Up, and OPI Red Lights Ahead Where?
I took painter's tape and created a diagonal with the following colors: OPI Jade is the New Black, OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours, OPI Plugged-In Plum, and China Glaze Sunday Funday.
I finished off with my Pueen stamping plates and stamped the black bows with Essie Licorice.
So what do you think? Do you think this represents the movie?
Oh I never liked Alice in Wonderland as a kid either, actually I don't know if I do today. The story is just sort of strange, not very "fairytale" like.ReplyDelete
I feel the same way! I still won't watch it :)Delete
Great mani! Alice in Wonderland was actually always one of my favourites, and still is! I love the weirdness about it! xoReplyDelete
Thank you! I think the weirdness scared me as a kid lolDelete
i love the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland more - if you've ever read the book you'll realise Disney twist a lot of things to try and make them more 'happy ending' etc.ReplyDelete

I love alice in wonderland myself, both the original and the tim burton movies, but I've only just watched the original recently so I can't say if I would have liked it as a kid, haha.
Thank you, I tried not to do something so literal :)Delete
