10 Day/Week...OK MONTH! Challenge - Favorite Movie or Inspired By A Movie

I had to think long and hard about this one. I'm not really sure if I have a favorite movie...but if I do, it is old, romantic, and involves one of the Hepburns. :) I just couldn't get inspired to do a manicure out of the African Queen, so I decided to use a favorite of my sister's instead. She came to the rescue with a few suggestions, but the one that stood out to me most was Alice in Wonderland. What a great movie to inspire some fabulous nail art! So here you go - my Alice in Wonderland nail art.

I started off my thumb nail with two coats of Loreal After Hours, then carefully drew in the eyes and mouth for my Cheshire Cat. For my index finger, I used one coat of Sinful Colors Unicorn, and then added in the purple and drew in the face to create my singing pansy. This is my least favorite one. It looks more like an angry monster, but ah well, I can't be perfect all the time. :) On my middle finger, I used two coats of Misa What A Wonderful Day then added detail to create the caterpillar. On my ring finger, I started off with two coats of Pure Ice Superstar!, then drew in the details to make a card, in this case the ace of hearts. And last, but not least, the doorknob. I started with two coats of Pure Ice Vintage then added detail to create the doorknob's face. I  used a ton of different colors for this, so I'm not going to list them all out, but if anyone wants to know, just ask in comments below, and I will get back to you within a day or so. :)

All in all, I totally love this manicure and am hereby dedicating it to my lovely sister, who gave me the idea. Thanks, Kate!! That's all for now, thanks for stopping by to look at today's nail art!
