At the end of October, The Ninja (and the rest of the blogosphere) reported that OPI would be creating a collection to revel in the hullabaloo that is Tim Burton's Disney bonanza, Alice in Wonderland. Well, the time to purchase said collection is drawing neigh, and we've seen some swatches (!) and even some frankens* inspired by the Alice in Wonderland story.
*frankens = a homemade polish created by mixing other nail polishes and/or added ingredients like glitter or loose pigments; as in "frankenstein".
Let's review with our pictures of the collection, which includes a red creme, a red shimmer, and two glitters (one a blue, and the other a black-based multi-hued glitter):
Off with Her Red! – A glowing, empowering hot red
The Red Queen: Cruel ruler of Underland, she cuts off the heads of those who disagree with her. She would rather be feared than loved.
Absolutely Alice - An absolutely amazing blue glitter
Alice Kingsley: Beautiful but slightly off-kilter, sees the world differently than most. In the Rabbit Hole, she seeks to write her own destiny.
Mad as a Hatter – A madly marvelous black-multi glitter
The Mad Hatter: Formerly the White Queen’s hatter. Now, he is part of the Underland Resistance and driven to madness by guilt.
Thanks So Muchness! - For this ”much-have” red shimmer
And lastly…; As if the tale was not adventurous enough, one more shade to color your own Underland over and over.

As The Ninja is currently obsessed with two things (black glitter and white shimmer/glitter), clearly she will be snapping up Mad as a Hatter, which is basically hella sparkly and gorgeous! Like Michelle, The Ninja was completely underwhelmed with Absolutely Alice when viewing the promos, but the swatches make this polish another must-have! As for the reds, while pretty, The Ninja is gonna skip 'em, due to the sheer number of reds in her stash that don't get worn!
But swatching these isn't all that Michelle has been doing lately. She's a busy little beaver and was so inspired by the Alice idea that she thought to create a polish based on the Cheshire Cat! Take a little lookie:
