Truffle Thursday! Bettina Watermelon- Swatch & Nail Art

(**Bettina press samples**)
Happy Thursday! 

  And today it is a Truffle kind of Thursday. I'm severely "out of it" as I am trying to type up this post, so I will keep it short and sweet today.Truffle refused to pick a color, so I went with the shade that the husband kept wanting her to pick. He kept telling het to pick the Pink one lol. This look features Bettina Watermelon.

 This look started with a base of Two coats of Watermelon. Then I did some tri-colored clouds a'la Nailside. For the clouds I used all Bettina shades as well. The Blue is Pond, the Purple is Butterfly and the Teal is Sparkle. I finished the look with a coat of Seche Vite to smooth the surface and bring out shine. 
 Cat-stacking level: nail polish.

 This shade is a hawt shade of hot Coraly- Pink creme with strong Pink and coral micro shimmer. The formula on this shade is really saturated and creamy. I used Two easy coats for my base.

Oh and here is a quick vid to show how I paint my nails :D.

Thanks for stopping by today my loves! I'm off to work on swatching a ton of Fall collections!

    All the polishes are really pretty!! The look is cute too :)

  2. I like the colors you choose! Really a job well done :-)

  3. Love this. At this point, my life dream is to have you give me a manicure at some point in my life. Flawless, as per usual!

  4. Cute nail art and cute cat pictures! I watched you video and I've seen people using that brush clean up and I must start using it too! :D

  5. Oh wow this is so pretty!! I love the color combination the cool colors counteract watermelon so well! Your nails are always so perfect lady! :)

  6. So pretty! Love the nail polish on your cat! xx

  7. It really is an amazing brush and mine has held up so well through all the abuse I've put it through all three+ years I've had it. Go for it!! The entire 666 series by Kolinsky is really good. I also have #14 for really detailed cleanups.

  8. Thank you so much! These put a smile on my face. They kind of remind me of hot air balloons :D

  9. the Watermelon on it's own as well as 'in the clouds!'

  10. Just started following you today, great look!

  11. Is it ok not to use a base coat ? Your nails without polish are sligthly coloured.

    Anyway, I love Bettina's Watermelon polish ^^
