Violet Beauregard

10 May

I had an anonymous fan email me a bit ago and ask me to do some Violet Beauregard nails to go with Violet Halloween costume and Oompa Loompa nails.  I will admit that I thought it was a bit of an odd request in the middle of spring.

You all know who Violet is, right?  From Willy Wonka?  She’s the one who’s obsessed with chewing gum and turns in to a blueberry then has to be rolled away by Oompa Loompas for juicing.  I did a little white, sponging under each nail to try to get a little round effect.  I don’t know if it worked or not.  I sure do love this blue though!

I showed you this blue polish last week; NYX Ink.  It’s a gorgeous cobalt blue jelly.  I’m in love with it.  I used China Glaze White on White for the sponging underneath.  The red is acrylic and the buckle is China Glaze Platinum Silver.

I doubled up on my base coat to prevent staining.  I mostly worked.  I still had some light staining around the edges.  And I would like Anonymous to know, I painted these nails on May 8th. 🙂

      I thought the same thing Tara! Pretty random, but who am I to say no to a fan? 🙂

      At Halloween we joked that my Oompa Loompa nails were them carrying me off to be juiced. 🙂

    Hi there,
    I love this style that you did. I usually do all blue even toes (Midnight blue). Can you please email me a tutorial of this for both fingers and toes step-by-step because I cannot follow some of your ways.

      Check your email Babs.

    Hi there. I saw this post after finding at Are you two the same person?

    • TopCoatIt June 13, 2012 at 9:14 pm #

      Nope, not the same person. I’m not familiar with that site.

    You should try it again but with Julep Marisa?

      I will not be doing another Violet Beauregard design.

    I just realized what this also reminds me of. I was watching football since I am a big fan of the Raiders and I saw that this is pretty close to the New York (football) Giants helmet design.
