Who Can Take the Sunrise...Sprinkle it With Dew...

...Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two.. the candy man can!! :) Ok, these nails are a tribute to one of the greatest movies of all time... Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie, and Gene Wilder's Lovable, yet unsettlingly close to insane character. :-P I chose to paint Willy Wonka's purple velvet jacket, purple flowered shirt, and gold satin bow tie! I even used a Zoya Matte Velvet collection color for the VELVET jacket!!! :-P

I used Zoya Savita matte for the jacket, mixed with Sally Hansen All the White Stuff for the lapels, and again for the purple on the shirt. For the white of the shirt, I used OPI Alpine Snow Matte, and for the bow tie I used China Glaze 2030 from Khrome Collection, then mixed with China Glaze Liquid Leather to shade, and tehn topped it off with Essie Matte About You to dull down the shine of the Khrome.

Oh, and the snozzberries DO taste like snozzberries.


  1. LOL snozzberries.... THAT brings back memories!
    Really clever nail idea!

  2. This might be my favorite design ever! I looove Willy Wonka.

  3. That's very cool, I love your originality

  4. you can bet I won't get that song out of my head for the rest of the day!! The nails are soooo cute!

  5. I love this! You come up with the BEST ideas- so much fun! I LOVE the Zoya Savita- but I'm vexed because I keep missing out on CG 2030- my Sally Beauty had it, then didn't, did, didn't... gotta find it online.
    The texture of his jacket really comes through on your nails- it looks 3D! Super kool.
    Plus, I feel the same way about the original Willy Wonka movie- and in spite of loving Johnny Depp as I do, even HE couldn't hold a candle to Gene Wilder as W.W. !!!

  6. Thanks everyone!!! :-P I can't get the damn song out of my head either!! :-P
