The Alice Barlett 'Manicured Lawns' photography series is a whimsical take on the phrase "the grass is always greener on the other side" -- or in this case, the other thumb. The miniature figurines are perched peacefully on the lawn-laced nails of this imaginative photographer.

Decked out in a freshly cut, manicured lawn, the storybook characters are captured in mundane moments. Playing with scale and up-close captures, photographer Alice Barlett creates unimaginable scenes that captivate appreciating onlookers. Illusionistic nail art is all the rage this season and beauty mavens would get a real kick out of this far-out fictional series. You can certainly make the claim you have a mean green thumb with this offbeat manicure.

Looking like something straight out of Alice in Wonderland, the Alice Barlett Manicured Lawns series is full of delightful details and sweet snapshots.
