When I was 10 years old, a friend of mine taught me how to play chess. My granddaddy was amazing at chess, and my mom told me that he actually played against a Grandmaster in chess and won! I was so excited to show off my new skills and play against him. I remember I actually took one of his pieces and I was so proud of myself. In the next move, he beat me. That's when I learned the art of sacrificing yourself in order to win, something that Ron Weasley taught us years later.
When I saw Check Mate in the Ciate Mini Mani Month 2015 box, it was obvious I needed to do chess nail art. When I was looking for something fun to pose with, I realized I didn't have any chess pieces. Oh ya, I never finished my story. After my granddaddy beat me in chess, I never played again, and then I forgot all the rules.
Then I remembered there's a lot of chess in Alice in Wonderland!
Ciate Check Mate is a black and white square glitter in a clear base. It's kind of like Lynderella Connect the Dots, but less exciting. I had to fish and place the glitters. I loved how they looked over the black and white gradient, it made the glitters look like they were a gradient too.
What do you think of Ciate Check Mate? Do you like to play chess?
