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!

"Truffin" Tuesday!! Barielle Green Apple and O.P.I My Paprika is Hotter than Yours!

Hello and happy Tuesday! 

  SO sorry this post is running late. I got distracted yesterday while working on my hair. I got into one of my cray cray funks and decided I wanted to re-do my hair colors. I've been taking Folic Acid supplements (per my doctor) and my hair, and nails have been growing SO fast!! But, anywho... My roots were KILLING me, so I got wrapped up in that project and completely forgot to post this awesome mani I did with Truffle's pick(s).  
 Muffin is still refusing to pick lol. She will just sit there looking pretty like "What, what do you want human?". This week though, Truffle decided to join in the fun and picked me some shades to play with.
 I don't know what it is about this look but I LOVE how it turned out. The color combination is weird and yet it works so well. Truffle picked for me Barielle's Green Apple and O.P.I My Paprika is Hotter than Yours. These are both phenomenal, vibrant shades!! They both have amazing formulas, incredibly saturated and creamy! I used Two coats of each shade. For the triangle Purple accents I used Zoya Pinta. I finished the look off by adding some contrasting "glequins" and topping the whole look off with Twee & Honey's This is Matteness- matte top coat.

 And here are the kitties doing their thing.

 And because I loved these shades together before I even added accents. Here are my base colors. I am smitten with O.P.I MPIHTY!! That said, my camera was not a fan lol. It is an AMAZING Summer/ Spring shade and if you even remotely like Oranges, you will want this baby. Green Apple by Barielle is a really fun and unique shade and you can't beat that Barielle formula!
 I'm loving all these fun and quirky shades for Spring and Summer. I think those are my favorite seasons for nail polish. I had so much fun working with these colors and I can see why Truffle has trouble deciding ;).

  Time to go finish working on my hair!! I will have pics for you guys as soon as it is done ♥.

Truffle Thursday Time!

It's been some time right?

  Truffle decided she wanted to pick me a color this week so I let her do just that.
  So this is the lovely Bettina #28. This is an amazing Plum base with a lovely Fuchsia shimmery flash throughout. The formula on this is amazingly smooth and a solid two coater. I love the shimmer in this. In dim light it just looks like a shimmery Plum but in the Sun all these lovely flashes of Pinky color come out to play. Also a quick note on the stamp. This brand doesn't really have a name. It can be found on eBay or Born Pretty Store. Truffle picked me a good one this week :)!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Surprise Truffle Cameo!! Zoya Bela

Hello lovelies!! Surpriseee!!!! Well a little one anyways :)

  So, the second I mentioned we had added a new kitty to the family many of you suggested on here, FB and Twitter that I give Truffle a day. Well ask and you shall receive! Truffle will be making random cameos here on LTHP starting today! For her this week she chose the delicate Zoya Bela.
I had issues with the Bow stamp lol. Still getting the hang of those.
Kinda wish I had done all my nails like my ring finger haha!
  Zoya's Bela is the most beautiful shade of Ballerina slipper Pink. I am madly in love with the texture of this polish as it borders on being a jelly. The formula is absolute perfection as I've come to expect from Zoya. This is a bit sheer so it does need to be built up. For the pictures I used Three coats of color. I must say at Two coats it was a lovely flush of color and VNL was minor. This has a very intense shine but adding a coat of SV made the color look squishy and delicious! I'm really happy this soft Pink is a part of my collection as I believe these types of colors are absolute staples!

What is a color that should be a part of every one's collection?
