Alice in Wonderland Movie

Watched Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland on Tuesday.
At first, me and my boyfriend were pissed off at the low ratings it received on, but after watching the film, we understood why.
This movie is definitely over-rated... too much hype with the events, trailers, advertisements, and even collaborations with Urban Decay and OPI.
Don't get me wrong! I truly love Alice in Wonderland and I love Tim Burton...
He just didn't do a great job on this...
With 1 hour and 48 minutes, character development was terrible... most scenes were useless and rushed... and random. Very predictable and no emotional connection... 
However, the set, costumes, make-up, theme, and everything else (besides plot and character development) was incredible (: 
It even earned more money than avatar in the box office the first weekend it was released... due to all the hype. Either way, it was worth a watch (for discount Tuesday movie tickets).
And I kinda wanna get the dvd for it... just for the costumes and make-up (:

Oh and of course, I decided to do something special for the occasion (:

Disney's original Cheshire Cat inspired nails. Also purple and pink eyeshadow. With hot pink outfit d:

I also got the Alice in Wonderland OPI nail polish set.

Mad as a Hatter was sold out! It's such a gorgeous colour! 
And the other colours are easily found elsewhere... so I got the set instead of each nail polish.
Also because of the packaging~ and to complete my Alice in Wonderland cosmetic set!

Haha I swear to god, I'm never using these!

Also got these adorable Nightmare before Christmas salt and pepper shakers (:
See I told you I love Tim Burton d:

Besides that, I have a lot to do for school...

Had mid-terms on Monday~ and have a big assignment due Friday!
Should get started...
And look what came in the mail (:


First up is... my acrylic nail set~

From left to right:
nail forms, white acrylic powder, pink acrylic powder, clear acrylic powder, dappen dish, brush, acrylic liquid.

I was so happy with them... but they smell so bad! 
Need to find something to wear to block out the smell >.>

Next were 500 clear nail tips

All of them are too big for me... so I have to spend a lot of time filing those down ):

Then came the pack of glitter!

Disappointed me a little because I thought it would be bigger...
but nonetheless, the colours are gorgeous (:

And last but not least, the fimo sticks~

They're sooo cute! I can't wait to use them~

Also went shopping after class and bought these. 
Good thing they were on sale too!

As soon as I received the acrylic set in the mail, I decided to try them out.

It took me a long time to do them and if you look closely, the quality is terrible!
It's my first time though so I think it's pretty good (:
I will improve for sure!
And don't really know why I chose green but it's March and spring and St. Patrick's day?
So I guess it works out~
What do you guys think about them?

Also it had been confirmed that my trip to Hong Kong will be from May 4th to May 31st!
I can't wait (: That's 9 weeks~
I still gotta lose this weight... >.> Not funny anymore. Well, it never was.

Alice in Wonderland movie is coming this Friday!
Although I don't expect to see it as it premieres that day... will have too much people.
Might just watch it on Tuesday on me and Andrew's anniversary~
Since we both love Alice so much ♥

How about you guys?
Planning on watching Alice in Wonderland?
Been fans of the book or Disney movie?
Or even Tim Burton?

I am going to do my homework! (: Update later~~ And Happy March!
