Violet Beauregard Inspired...

Today I have a very special reader requested manicure to share with you. A few days ago I got a request for a manicure inspired by the outfit of Violet Beauregard from the original Willy Wonka movie. I pried a little as to the significance of this particular movie character for her, partly because I was curious and partly to draw inspiration. The answer was simple, she has autism, she loves Violet, and these happen to be her school colors. Enough said!


To create this manicure I started out with a bit of Liquid Palisade (LP) covering the half moon of each nail. I must really be determined to see how manicures I can get out of the little tube since I seem to be using it a lot lately. I then painted the nails with Barielle Blue Capri (full swatches coming soon) and removed LP. Using a detail brush and OPI OPI...Eurso Euro, I added the dark blue collar. Using red acrylic paint, I added the red stripe for a belt and accented the belt with a gold rectangular stud from the BornPrettyStore. I painted the center of the stud using Barielle Big Apple Red. The 'buttons' are little gold studs that I got from Cult Nails a while ago...





Next to the inspiration character herself... :)


Thank you to my lovely reader for this request! I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)

  4. This is fantastic! I am loving this! I actually bought that liquid palisades two years ago when I started blogging and it was a new product it did not work for me. I wonder if they improved it since then? Violet was my fave in the original. I also have a secret crush on Gene Wilder!

  5. Thank you so much everyone! I'm so glad that you like the interpretation. It was fun to create.

    @Fingers, I'm sorry to hear that LP didn't work for you. I don't know if they changed the formula, but I don't suspect that they have. In what way did it not work for you?
