Alice and OPI

Just saw this ad in my latest issue of Allure. Fun opportunity for me to blog about two topics.

Alice in Wonderland Movie.
Alice in Wonderland is an upcoming fantasy-adventure film directed by Tim Burton. It is an extension to the Lewis Carroll novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The film will use a technique combining live action and motion capture. Mia Wasikowska plays the role of Alice, alongside Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, and Crispin Glover as The Knave of Hearts. The film is scheduled for release on March 5, 2010 and the film will be released through Walt Disney Pictures in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D, as well as in regular theaters.

Here is the official trailer. The animation looks amazing and Johnny Depp, as the Mad Hatter, is ingenious. Just a reminder of the wonderful films that Tim Burton has made: Beetlejuice; Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow, Charley and the Chocolate Factory and many others. I cant wait. I'm planning on seeing that on IMAX.


Now to the other topic, I love OPI nail lacquer. While it is a little more expensive that other nail polishes is it well worth it. My manicures stay fresh and unchipped for so much longer. There is a huge array of shaded from pastel to very deep. It is the choice of nail salons for professional manicures. When I go to my nail salon I usually bring my own selection of color. I probably have about a dozen OPI bottles. This way I am never disappointed with the exact color and look I desire. I also love their marketing. The new Alice collection comes in some of the following colors (see the ad above): Thanks, so Muchness; Absolutely Alice; Mad as a Hatter, Off with her Red. Who is the creative person that comes up with these names?


OMG! I just saw this! Urban Decay will be launching the Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows. Apparently this will be launched on January 15 on UrbanDecay.com.

Inside a hidden drawer lies 16 best-selling eyeshadows, with names like White Rabbit (white - 2nd Row, 2nd Column), Midnight Tea Party (golden beige - 3rd Row, 3rd Column), Mad Hatter (reddish brown - bottom row, 3rd Column), Queen (shimmery mauve - top Row, last Column), Mushroom (muted grey - 3rd Row, 2nd Column), Jabberwocky (black - bottom row, last column), Oraculum (shimmery golden orange - top Row, 3rd Column) and (of course!) Alice (bright blue - top row). A travel-size Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils are also included. Absolutely Dreamy!
