Cheshire Cat

Probably about a month ago, I found a tape mani on Chloe's Nails that I loved. I've done a few attempts at this design, experimenting with the colors and rays. I decided I wanted to try out Ulta - Little Black Dress and Brittany wisely advised me that Pure Ice -  Peony would look great with it. She was right! I just started cutting tape and putting the rays on in a pattern. For some reason, I struggle with scissors and failed at cutting tape into equal pieces. Oh well!

Here's the results... By the time I remembered to take a camera with me, it was dark outside. These were both taken with a flash outside.

As soon as I was done painting my nails, I had the thought that these reminded me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. But I couldn't exactly remember what that darn cat looked like. Being as resourceful as I am, I used the ever reliable Wikipedia to look him up (I saved you the hassle... click here if your childhood memories are failing you as well!) Okay, so not an exact match, but he's different than I remember, and I still stand by my claim :)

I love this mani, it looks super cool!! I don't understand why your blog isn't more famous, you guys are awesome! Do you can any suggestion for a high quality black polish? I've been looking for a good black one and a white one.

@Beauty on a College Budget: As far as black polishes go, my friends and I really like Orly - Liquid Vinyl. I'm still on the hunt for a white I love. Keep me posted if you find one.
