I got Grape on my Jeans

You all know how much I love my Bettina right?  Their names are simple and to the point.  However, I am confused by today's selected polish name.  It just seems wrong and misleading.  Why Bettina?  Why?

First we will be having a history lesson.  Do you know what a daguerreotype is?  No? Why should you care you ask?  Because I care and I want to school you today.  A daguerreotype is the method of photography eons ago where the people had to pose for hours while the image was burned into a plate of metal.  I recently was given several of these of my far distant relatives and they are cool as sh*t!

Here is your daguerreotype silly bottle shot.

The lady on the right is my paternal grandmother's mother.  From the 1800s.  How cool is that?  I just love looking at old photographs and what the people used to wear.  I just love it.

I know, you all are thinking, who gives a crap-can you just get on with the polish please? Yes people-here we go.....

This is Bettina Grape, Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean and Bettina Premium Wash Jeans.  I started with Grape and an accent of Jeans.  Here are those shots.




Wait a minute-I thought this polish was called Grape?  Does this look like purple to you?  Now granted, my camera does not like to show purples but this is color accurate. This is a light blue creme.  Why did they call it Grape?  Oh well.  Jeans is a medium blurple creme and stunning.

Next I stamped with the opposite color, plate SDP-N, added a layer of Cosmic Ocean and topped it off with my funky.  Here are your results.

See that shimmer?  That's the Cosmic Ocean.  Isn't this awesome?  I just love it!

Do you have any old pictures of your ancestors? Can you tell me why this blue is called Grape? Does it even matter?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
