Nail Art: #31DC2014 Day 23 Inspired by a Movie

The movie I chose for the nail art challenge, inspired by a movie, was Alice in Wonderland (2010). I actually chose a dress that Alice wore in the court of the queen of hearts. I would love to put a photo of it in this post, but I cannot find an original source for the photos I am finding so I won't, but if you google Alice in Wonderland Red Court Dress, it will come up. It was a tulle poofy dress with a red to black underskirt and a sheer white overlay with stripes and hearts on it. Ever since I first saw this dress in the movie, I have loved it. It is so out there, but girly and sort of steampunk it inspired me. I loved it enough to remember it years later and recreate it on my nails!

So I think this looks a lot different than the process was. I started with a red to black gradient (Color Club Mamba and Sinful Colors Black on Black), then I painted white acrylic stripes on top. I then added a sheer white (Sally Hansen Polar Bare) and then painted black stripes on top and added hearts and stars. I wish I had a side by side photo to share with you! I thought this was a really cool design. I love how the sheer polish transformed the look completely! What do you think? I had a difficult time deciding what to do for movie inspired because so many movies start as books. This one did too, but I gave up the search because I really loved this costume. Well, I hope you enjoy it and thanks for reading!
