One of my readers, Annika, e-mailed me her ideas for a Violet Beauregarde nail design and asked if I could do a nail tutorial based on the character from the original 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory character.
Since I haven’t done freehand nail art in some time, I thought I’d give it a go.
You’ll remember that Violet was the one who chewed the same piece of gum for a long time. And when at the factory, she can’t resist trying the new chewing gum that Willy Wonka has come up with that includes flavours such as appetizers, main courses, and even desserts!
Haha, she grows bigger and bigger, turning blue/violet as the seconds pass! Finally, the Oompa Loompas have to take her to the Juicing Room to squeeze it all out.
Here is my version of Violet Beauregarde Nails.
Instead of making the buckle sideways on the red belt, I wanted to give it a twist, so I painted them very similar to the buckles in the Santa Nails I did before on here.
If you want to take a completely literal and accurate approach, paint the red belt and buckles horizontally.
In this post, I’ll show you more photos of this quick design as well as step-by-step instructions with photos for how to recreate it.
