Alice in Wonderland Nail Art

Hey! Sorry that today's post is coming so late in the day, I just haven't had a chance to write it up until now!

I did these nails for a contest on Freestyle Nails on Tumblr. The theme was "muse" and for my muse I chose the world of Wonderland! She actually announced the winners this afternoon, and I got second!

Lets talk about each nail.

The thumb is one of the flamingoes that Alice used to play croquet... that's why it's upside down in the grass!
The pointer is the caterpillar's hookah smoke asking Alice, "Who are you?"
The middle is the White Rabbit's pocketwatch.
The ring is the Queen's army of cards.
The pinkie is a white rose being painted red.

Here are all the colors used in this entire manicure... cause I'm feelin' ambitious!

Zoya Kristen (blue)
China Glaze Gaga For Green (green)
Sally Hansen Going Green (dark green)
OPI If You Moust, You Moust (pink)
China Glaze Recycle (gray)
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (white)
OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh (tan)
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky (yellow)
Sally Hansen Rapid Red (red)
Konad White and Black (used for freehanding)

All nails were freehanded with a small nail art brush. I had to re-do a couple of them once or twice, but I am really loving the way they came out. I love the stories and loved depicting some different events and characters on my nails!

Though I will say, it was really tough to choose! There are so many awesome places for inspiration in the stories.
