Alice in Wonderland: A Very Merry Unbirthday To You

"Now blow the candle out, my dear, and make your wish come true!"

Unbirthdays make a lot of sense. You've only got one birthday, but there are three hundred and sixty four unbirthdays! I just so happen to be wearing this unbirthday manicure on my birthday. Breakin' the rules today!

The unbirthday song in Disney's Alice was a lot of fun. When Alice blew the candle out, it sparked and flew up into the air into an explosion of colours. This is what I have on my first three fingers. My pinky shows the remaining embers that float down after the fireworks. 

I got to break out a couple new tools for this design, including a new striping brush and a small dotting tool (so excited these finally came in the mail)! The cake was painted with small brushes and a dotting tool, and the sparks and fireworks were done with a combination of a striping brush, small piece of sponge (for the middle finger when the fireworks shoot up), dotting tool, and a toothpick (for the really small dots).
