Bettina Boogie over Wet n Wild Black Creme

Another Bettina!


Thanks to my girl Nory, I was able to get my hands (literally) on the fabulousness that is Boogie, from the LE Disco Collection.  While I personally think this is more of a summer polish, I was asked by the sweet Ashesela from Art Evolve to swatch this first so how could I resist?  I tried to winterize it up by layering it over Wet n Wild Black Creme.


I had hoped that layering would also bring out the pink, gold, and blue duochrome-esque shimmer that floats in this lovely purple jelly base (the gold pops more in the bottle than on the nail in my pictures, sadly).  It really did look interesting and shiny, but unfortunately I couldn't completely capture in photos how gorgeous this was in real life.


This is 2 coats of Black Creme with 2 coats of Boogie over it.  Everything applied fantastically.


The macro shot illustrates best how strongly duochrome the glitter is.
I had planned to do a whole post of Boogie over a white, a purple, and itself but when I attempted to swatch those, for some reason the formula of the white I used just didn't jive with the Bettina and I scratched the whole idea in frustration.  I will say, though, that I was actually surprised how saturated this was when I swatched it on its own.  I hope to be able to do a full mani of Boogie "naked" and post shortly.

Thank you again to Nory for this truly funky polish!
Thank you to Ashesela for inspiring this post!
And thank you to Cris from Let Them Have Polish for giving me the idea to layer this over black!

So what do you ladies think??
