Nails~ Mad as a Hatter

This is the 'Mad Hatter' inspired 'simple' nail design. The idea is from the original illustrations of the Mad Hatter by Sir John Tenniel. The design on my ring finger is the price tag from his hat. According to Wikipedia:
The card or label on the Hatter's hat reads "In this style 10/6". "10/6" means ten shillings and six pence (or a half guinea), the price of the hat in pre-decimalised British money and acts as a visual indication of the hatter's trade. (There were 21 shillings to the guinea, 20 shillings to the pound and 12 pennies to a shilling ... thus 10/6 = £0.525.) With inflation, £0.525 in 1865 would be worth about £40.55 in 2002.
