The Red Queen vs. The White Queen

Day 3 of 3 for the Countdown to Alice in Wonderland: 3 Days of Wonderland inspired nails.

This manicure was inspired by the conflicting Queens depicted in the new Alice in Wonderland movie.

First up...the Red Queen...

Aren't those posters amazing? Great nail polishing inspiration!

To capture the juxtaposition of red against white, the two colors I chose were Orly in Gogo and Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Red Carpet. Gogo is a pearlescent white creme with a hint of silver glitter that almost makes it look dusty, but that's why I like it. For the red I chose Red Carpet because it's a vibrant red glitter that sparkles brilliantly and really catches your eye.

And here's a (sort of) close-up of the heart decal. When I first saw these nail stickers at Rite Aid, I was already planning an Alice in Wonderland inspired mani with this sticker. It just seems perfect for the Red Queen. A red heart, with X's throughout it, topped with a crown? What couldn't be more perfect?

The decals used are by Fing'rs Edge, which I picked up at Rite Aid for under $5US.

Enlarge the image below (just click on it), to see all the beautiful shine and glitter-sparkle that the red polish shows.

So what are your thoughts on this final mani inspired by Alice in Wonderland? Did you do a manicure/nail design for the new Alice in Wonderland movie?

Thanks for looking. Bye for now.
