I did a swap a while with Diane over at Diane Cristi. We agreed that I needed some Bettina's in my life and that she needed some Color Clubs and OPI.

She is so sweet! I think I came across her blog and commented about a NOTD she posted and she later emailed me about a possible swap. I said "YEAH!" and I am so glad I did! Because now, I totally loving my Bettinas!

I looked up swatches before posting this. And I must say, that my Orchidea is much much lighter than those that I have seen. It could possibly be the lighting and what not. But it's really almost like that color in the photo. If not, maybe just a touch more minty looking.

Bettina Orchidea covered in 2 coats and had perfect application. Orchidea is a pastel mint color. Perfect for spring but I'm not that kind of person to put it away during the cooler months.

I don't know where you can find Bettina's but I wish I had access to Bettinas here where I live but in the mean time, I guess Diane will be my Bettina swap buddy! Hopefully she's with that.

Thanks Diane for the swap!

Do you have access to Bettinas?
