Bettina 45 & Orion + 185 & Nova

Hello lovelies!

  Today I some a core Bettinas to show you. This is the pretty #45 with a coat of Orion layered over it. I am lalalaloving these Two together. I also have a hard time believing that in Puerto Rico this brand sells for only $1.99!!! I thought it was a lot more than that lol! Please come to Florida and then take over the US Bettina!! We are all waiting lol!!

 And I just had to try it Matte and I loved it even more!
  In the pictures above I am holding Stars Orion. This polish is something along the lines of O.P.I Princesses Rule! but this is a slightly darker shade of Silvery Pink shimmer. For the photos I just used one coat of Orion over #45.

#45 is a basic light Nude-ish Pink creme that applies like a dream. This is a very basic color from their core collection. I really love the dustiness this color has and that it is very easy to wear but it does not give me mannequin hands. Once I had it on I saw how close it matched the base for Orion and I just had to experiment with layering!

I really love the layered polishes together. It gives an ethereal, soft look without being boring. Two perfect colors for my lazy days! haha

  And then I decided that I wanted to try the second color from the Stars group which is Nova. These two colors are very sheer shimmers. They are lovely and ethereal on their own but I really wanted them to pop which is why I layered them over creamy colors that matched the Stars color base close. Here is Nova layered over #185.
Matte Of course!
And this is #185. Delicious chocolatey goodness is the best way to describe this. I should wear these types of colors more often, they look pretty against my skin. Anyways this was like applying hot chocolate on my nails. The formula was AMAAAZING on this one. This is a solid two-coater.

  I am beyond loving these two combos. I really like the leayering matted because it gives my nails a beautifuls Suede- like appearance. These are cute versitile shades and awesome "defaults" :).

What's a color you should wear more but don't?

  7. The first combo is unreal. It's impossibly gorgeous!

    And the second one is so pretty, I think that combo somewhat resembles Ulta's Chic Peek nail polish.

  13. I really love this polish, it literally looks like you dipped your nails in rich molten dark chocolate and this is how they came out. This mani really makes me want dark chocolate now.
