Bettina Indigo

Hi everyone!! So today I tried my very first gradient/sponge manicure:)










Ok, seriously, I am so in love with Indigo. The color is gorgeous. Indigo is a royal/navy-ish blue with some indigo undertones. The formula on this was dreamy and super opaque. I could have gotten away with one coat but out of habit, I did two. Dry time was lightning fast and it dried shiny! I seriously have no complaints... Unless it stains which I am hoping it won't.

Afterwards, I cut a little piece off of a cosmetic sponge and I sponged a little bit of Bettina #28 to the tips. I think it turned out great!! It looks so cool IRL. I love love LOVE it:) Definitely going to do sponge mani's more often! Just for fun I painted 1 coat of Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat over my left hand thumb... I think it looks cool... kind of "outer space" looking :D

Have you tried sponging yet?? :)



  • Base Color: Bettina Indigo

The sponging you did looks great!!Are Bettina polishes that good? Because appart from your blog and Cristina's from LTHP I haven't seen them elsewhere.

Une Ruxi à Paris: I honestly LOVE Bettina. Their formulas are amazing and I love every single color I have. They are a Puerto Rican brand and they JUST got in the US so that's why they are not everywhere... yet ;)

Ok. Is there any way we can order Bettina on a site?
Because I have not seen them in France.

I know that for US orders you can contact Janet Rosado. I would say email her and ask if there is any way she can ship them to France(:

Indigo is awesome! I love the darkness of it! Girl, your sponging looks great! I tried it once and it did NOT turn out well. I like your idea of cutting a piece of the cosmetic sponge off. I usually use the whole thing. Maybe that is the problem. Too large! I am going to try again. Love the color you picked and the glitter looks good, but I think it looks better without because you can really see the awesomeness of the gradient!
