Bettina Jeans Over Dyed - Acid Wash Denim Nail Art Tutorial

Hi loves!!

  Today I have a neat little look featuring some Bettina Blues and a stamp I've never used before. This look also features some sponging but for this look I did something a little more random and different, sponging all over the nail instead of just the tip to create a distressed denim look of sorts.
So, for this look I started with a base of Bettina's Over Dyed. I then sponged with a mix of Bettina's Vintage Jean and  Sand Blast, all colors from their Jeans Collection. For the stamp I used Konad Plate M9 and Konad Special White Polish.


Here is a swatch of Over Dyed. This is much darker in person and really pretty. This is what I like to call Cadet Blue, I guess. It's a hard shade to describe because it's Blue but not just Blue. Two coats.

Sooo flippin' shiny!

And of course [HERE] is a tutorial to go along with this look. It's is fairly simple but I thought I'd share :).

See you guys tomorrow!

  17. Wow, this is amazing !
    I must admit i'm not a big fan of the base color (pretty and sooo shiny but not my kind of blue), but with the lighter touchs and the design, it's really gorgeous!

  18. Love this, this looks great!! I wish I could order this brand, but after a few emails, I've given up. It looks like they aren't interested in shipping out to Australia.

  24. That stamp is too cute. I don't have that but I have some stickers that are zippers that I think would work nicely on the acid washed denim. Thanks for posting!
