Lit from Within: Bettina Blast II

Bettina Blast II

If you were paying attention yesterday, you maybe caught a glimpse of this color in the fan mani.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I totally don't get the name, though.

Grape.  It isn't even purple at all.  At best, maybe a periwinkle, though my swatch reads a little more blue.  But, if I rejected all weirdly named polishes, my collection would be very, very, very small.  This one was my very fave of the bunch.

Trend.  Yep, taupes are trendy now.  And, probably will be for some time, because they are so work-wear friendly.  I own a bunch of them - some more grey, some more purple.  This one definitely leans purple, but very dusty.

I tried replicating a look I saw on Pinterest, done with Julep polishes.  I couldn't find the original post, but here's the pin, if you're interested.

Finally, another look with all  four polishes.  This is another version of the abstract brush stroke mani popularized by Chalkboard Nails.  

This type of mani is like your favorite recipe to pull out for dinner guests:  looks impressive, is actually easy to do, and goes well with almost anything.

You know you want Wags (Walgreens) to start carrying Bettina, so if you have any pull, let them know!  I can't wait to get access to more of their great colors.  What do you think?  Did you like the nail art?

If you'd like more information about Bettina Cosmetics, here's their webpage.


  1. I like these! The nail art on your thumb is my fav.

    1. All it takes is a fan brush and some topcoat! Doing nails and nail art is kinda zen for me - might provide you with a little meditation away from MOM mode for a few mins! HUGS


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
