Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

I am a huge fan of Alice! I probably like the book the best, but some of the movies are good too! I absolutely had to do some Alice-themed nails, so here they are! I tried to base them more off the original illustrations rather than any of the movies.

It was so hard to decide which drawings to make! I eventually decided on what you see in the pictures (obviously!). :) For my right hand I painted Alice's dress and stockings, the talking flowers (specifically the Tiger Lily), the Caterpillar and his colorful clouds of hooka smoke, the painted roses, and the Mad Hatter's hat. Then on the left I painted the Cheshire after he's mostly disappeared, the Queen of Hearts' crown, the White Rabbit's checked waistcoat and pocket watch, the Red Queen's Crown, and the Queen of Hearts' royal livery (as seen on the White Rabbit).
(For those of you that don't know, the Red Queen is from the second part of the book, Through the Looking Glass. She is the chess Queen that gives Alice the most advice).

I tried to keep the images true to the illustrations, but it's hard! I'm pretty happy with the designs though! I hope you guys like them! The Caterpillar and his hooka smoke is probably my favorite because it's so colorful!

I used a billion different polishes, so I'll just list them here at the end instead of with the actual designs.
