Hello Lacquer Luvers! I am so sorry to have been neglecting my blog the past week. I have had a severely sore throat, nausea, and a nonstop headache for a few days. I'm finally feeling better today, though I'm still not 100%. I wanted to do a mani for you guys featuring one of the Bettina polishes from their new Flori Collection. This polish was gifted to me amongst 6 others as a Mother's Day gift from my husband and son =)
My manicure today began with a base of Essie Grow Faster. Next I applied two coats of Bettina Ortensia (my bottle label spells it with an "s", however the website has it spelled with a "c"). This shade of green has strong yellow undertones and actually reminds me of my Mom's pea soup. The formula of this polish was fantastic and application was very easy, reaching full opacity in just two coats.
Because this is a floral collection, I wanted to stamp on some pretty yet simple flowers. This design was achieved using Konad Special Stamping Polishes in black and white along with my Cheeky image plate CH7.
I added a little "bling" with these opalescent flat stones placed in the center of the flowers.
|Excuse the awkward positioning on this photo, I wanted to capture the opalescent shine of the flat stones for you.|
I've had these stones for a few years now and I like them because they are flat and small. These were found in my local beauty supply store for $1. This manicure is simple but I think it's really pretty. I like the way the black and white contrast with the green. Let me know what you all think of this mani and the other colors of Bettina's new collection. I also got Glacinto, which I hope to try this week. As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
