piCture pOlish; Bette Swatches

Well, it's been a long time... again. I've been so bad at keeping up with my blog since I got my first job. Recently I've been so busy, whilst fighting off a horrible cold, that blogging has been the last thing on my mind. Put that on top of the fact that I've slowly broken all of my nails down to little nubs from one thing and another and you'll see that blogging just hasn't been easy to get to.
Today, however, I have returned. Hopefully with some kind of regularity. Maybe. Anyway, today's my birthday and somehow (believe me, I'm not really sure how) I have turned 20. Of course on my birthday list were a couple of nail polish's that I've been eyeing up recently. I was ecstatic to open up a gift from my parents this morning to discover Bette from piCture pOlish. I am a huge lover of Bette Davis Eyes so this polish is already a winner with me for that, but I also have quite the fondness for blues so naturally this is a winner. Follow the jump to see the beautiful swatches...

Gradient Nails; Sparkling Sea

Recently I've had a thing for gradients and sparkles. While out shopping, I finally picked up China Glaze's Fairy Dust, a beautiful holo glitter, perfect for topping of a gradient. I then got this idea in my head to create a sparkly gradient. I ended up with three different shades of blue and a mint green and, lo, the sparkly sea gradient was born.
