Grape to the max

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.

I was so much looking forward to this collection! I know I am a bit late with it. But there is still plenty of time because it still is spring and this is a spring collection. This time OPI takes us to Holland with some funny names, beautiful cremes and some unusual shimmers.

Red Queen Astatine is the most duochrome polish in this collection. The color you see in the bottle is generally how the other polishes look, with their respective color undertone (in the other pics, the bottle is tilted so you can see the shimmer). Red Queen Astatine is a white shimmer polish with a reddish-purple undertone. On the nail, Red Queen Astatine changes from orange to red to purple. This polish is named for the 85th element, astatine. The photos above show this polish layered over black.

Simple and pretty

This is one of my favorite colors.

According to the website, Lotus is a “very soft, dusty blue-toned amethyst purple with colorful shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold.” I LOVE the shimmer- it really does change depending on the light!

I love this blog – she mixes up new, creative polishes – so fun! I’ve got a few spotlights on her coming up, so hold on to your hat :)

I used NYC Clear, Pure Ice Electric, and fine purple glitter from INM. I poured about half each of clear and Electric into an empty bottle, and added about one tablespoon of INM glitter.

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!

Grape jelly

This polish is a beautiful sheer shimmery purple jelly base with green hex, blue micro, and lavender bar glitter. The color combination reminds me of one of my favorite gemstones, lepidolite.

Electric Cinder

This color is so amazing and so is the photograph!

I choose Orly Rock Candy to pair with OM’s “Cinder” pigment. Cinder is a dark smoky black with teeny tiny purple glitter flecks. This was actually the second franken I made with Cinder…the first being a FAIL. Not a huge fail, but still not what I wanted, and these pigments are so darn pretty they deserve nothing less than a 100% effort on my part! Rock Candy was a wise choice, and I only needed about a teaspoon of Cinder pigment.
