Lights, camera, action!
This one was hard for me. I'm not sure why it was so hard for me to think of a nostalgic movie, song, or piece of literature. I reflected on what I listened to, read, and watched growing up but I could not come up with any ideas I liked. Then, while I least expected it, inspiration struck. I remembered reading a certain poem over and over because of the nonsensical gibberish in it. It was introduced to us kids by my dad (who is the best story teller ever) and my sister and I became obsessed. So without further ado, I introduce you to my friend...
The poem, by Lewis Carroll, was originally from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There however, I was unaware of this until I was in high school and reading Through the Looking-Glass. As the many years have passed, my sister and I still know the words to this wonderous poem and although it is full of nonsense words, you can still make sense of it as the words used are imitations of words. It's my favorite poem ever. Now on with more manicure pictures...
My nails say "...and with it's head he went galumphing back." This are the last lines in the fifth stanza and since I painted the Jabberwocky it was only fitting to slay him as painting him sure did the same to me:)
In Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There Alice comes across a book written in what seems like a different language language. She soon realizes that everything is written backwards, so Alice holds a mirror to the book and reads the reflected verse of "Jabberwocky." Because of this, I included some shots with a mirror just for fun;)I know it's kind of a mess (and that many of you probably dislike it), but I love this manicure. It was SO time consuming, but I love the result! It would be PERFECT for Halloween!
