Hi guys!  Today’s post is going to be another full of swatches like I did the other day with the Revlon Colorstay polishes.  This time around I will feature some lovely Bettina polishes! Bettina 28 is AMAZING.  I am not sure there are even any more words needed to go along with these pictures. This is just 2 coats of polish.  I am in love.

If you love pink then you will love this collection! The polishes are a cute tribute to Minnie Mouse and Disney fans. They all had great application, including Nothin’ Mouse ‘Bout It, which was a lot thicker than I imaged. I really love the glitter because its very versatile and can be used with our without the hearts, so its not a deal breaker if you don’t like hearts. Overall the set is fun and very girly. My favorites from the collection are The Color of Minnie and Nothin’ Mouse ‘Bout It!

Glitterati Nails

I love purple too!

Purple glitter nails

I started with (not that you can even tell anymore, but it’s there) a base of Kleancolor Metallic Black, then put down a coat of Barry M Lavender Hexograms, let that dry, put down another coat and — while it was still wet — dropped some random pink, purple and fuchsia rhinestones from Bundle Monster. While that was drying, I took a second to appreciate how much it looked like my cell phone case (and yes, I’m a moth to anything glittery and/or purple, it’s a weakness I’m 100% okay with)

Girly and Gilded

 Girly mix and match nail art 1

A few weeks ago, my sister Kelsey stopped by to get her nails done. You may remember her (and her nails!) from the last time we did a nail photoshoot featuring leopard print and a faux fur lined jacket. We were talking about manicure ideas and decided to do a girly mix and match featuring pinks, golds, and black. I did some sketching while we hammered out the details, and once the manicure was done, we did a mini photo shoot!

Fish Egg Friday

Fish Egg Friday

Because I already did a mixed manicure I decided to go with just one color and it looks like I made an Ombre Fish Egg Mani. I actually didn’t even remove my last Leopard mani, so I just applied a fresh coat of matching base color and sprinkle the beads on. I didn’t add any top coat because I remove it right after I took pictures. You can see a list of polish I used under the pictures… I know it’s not perfect, because it was made in just couple of minutes but you get the idea.

Chanel Lilac Sky is a cool-toned pinkish lilac with tons of silver shimmer. Pastels are so often warm-toned that they really don’t work on me at all, but this one, with the cool blue undertones actually makes it quite wearable for me. Application was actually better and less sheer than I expected. Two coats for opacity and no formula issues to mention. Even though it’s a bit frosty, it doesn’t really show brush strokes, but if you’ll be taking close-up photos, just make sure to do straight and even strokes. I noticed nothing until I saw my photos and there are a few very faint brush stroke marks that you couldn’t really see at arms length.

Glitter Bunny Little Pink Dress is unique. The base is a medium pink jelly containing golden orange flakies. It sounds crazy, but the effect is cool. My swatch is two coats. I used two coats of topcoat.

Pink Gumballs

Candy shop 023

I used three coats of Candy Shop for the picture above, and seriously HOW FUN IS THIS?! I love the variety of glitter in the bubblegum pink jelly base, it’s just too cute. The formula was a bit thick, but not too problematic. Best part you ask? It’s super affordable!

This is everything. I love the soft lilac pink, the silver hex glitter floating around on the nail, and the overall whimsical feel that this polish gives me. It’s everything I tell you!

Gradient Concert

Tumblr mpt0nujekY1qiaoh3o1 500

Back in July, I went to two concerts back-to-back, a One Direction and a Jonas Brothers concert. I was a bit unsure of what mani to wear since I didn’t have time to do a 1D mani and a JB mani (since the concerts were back-to-back). So, I pulled out the customized polish that I ordered from Shimmer Polish. Cindy helped create a beautiful peach, gold, and black polish that I customized for my friend Anouk. Ironically, Anouk and I met through Jonas Brothers and she actually introduced me to One Direction .. so what better polish to use, right? :D
