Betsey Johnson - Cartwheels on the Catwalk

It occurred to me yesterday while posting my ruffle nails that I hadn't yet posted a swatch of the base color I used for them!
And it is just a gorgeous polish, so I figured, today is the day you see it!

Sephora by OPI - Cartwheels On The Catwalk
This is a gorgeous dusty light blue polish from the Betsey Johnson collection. (You may remember seeing the mini collection here and It's My Pink here.)
If you haven't heard already, Betsey Johnson is going out of business. This makes a Betsey fan like me really sad. I guess I'll have to weep over the few Betsey things I've been able to find, and keep stalking eBay for more!

I'm glad $OPI put out Betsey polishes, more Betsey for me to hoard.
At first I didn't think I needed this color - don't we all have 10 dupes?
But in person I realized it is actually quite different from For Audrey and all the other similar colors. I didn't do a comparison but you can trust me. This is prettier and more... Vintage? I don't know. Prettier. Less stark. 2 coats is all you need for good coverage.

Whoops, that's out of focus. But you can still read it!

I'll miss you, Betsey!
Even if you won't be doing your cartwheels on the catwalk anymore, I'll still be wearing my Cartwheels on the Catwalk.


  1. oohh! I like I Like!!! lol Very pretty, is it just me or does there seems to be a bit of light blue fever going around? Oh well I'm not complaining :)

  2. Lovely polish! Makes me wish we had Sephora in Australia!

  3. I had just convinced myself I didn't need this. It is entirely your fault if I stop by Sephora on my way home from work.

  4. Pretty polish! I really like the blue-tone!

    I guess I need to get my hands on It's My Pink! soon. I'm surprised Betsey Johnson is going out of business! :(

  5. I'm sad about Betsey Johnson going out of business. I love her jewelry.
    On a happier note, I love that color! I love dusty pale colors like that.

  6. WHAT? Aww I follow Betsey on Instagram and she's always showing off new stuff so I didn't know about it.

    Boo. I might need this then. I got my first Betsey item for my bday this year and I'm kinda in love.

  7. Pretty!!! I was shocked when I heard the news....I had just gotten "into" BJ's beauty items. Love Too Too....I also made a mistake when I ordered the SOPI scented polish and bought 3 I'm glad LOL It is awesome! You can smell the scent thru topcoat and it's not too strong.

  8. You must know that the second I saw these swatches I ordered this polish. It is too perfect not to.

  9. OMG. You nail bloggers are bad bad bad!! ENABLERS!! I want this color.
