NOTD: Betty from MAC ~ Archie’ Girls Collection

Posted on: July 16, 2013

Pep Pep Pep from MAC ( Archie’s Girls Collection (Betty) is a cream finish that looks like an orange cream Popsicle. I bought this from Nordstrom on-line ($17.50 for .34 oz bottle) because it has the name Betty on the bottle. Even though the actual name of the polish is Pep Pep Pep?. The other reason I bought this polish is because on-line this looked to be more pink. The Veronica polish is an eggplant color. And, I bought this also because, I have a bottle of Russian Red from MAC that is a great polish with a great formula. So, I thought I would really love this one.
Then I received it in the mail, and not so much! As soon as I saw the color in person I knew this wasn’t for me. But, it has the name Betty on it, so I could not send it back. This is part of my little family collection I have of polish with names of my family, and Betty is certainly a part of my family!

I broke my thumbnail at work the other night so I cut my nails way back. They are nubbins now, and I thought I would try this polish on my short, short nails. The polish went on streaky on the first coat but I figured the second coat would take care of that. But again, not so much. This polish is a streaky mess and was terrible to work with. These pictures are 2 coats with a quick dry top coat. I painted my nails at night and took these pics in the morning, and I’m sure you can see the different nicks, chips, and streaks. Plus I do not like this color with my skin tone. I wish it had been a bit more pink, or even a bit more cream color would help.
I can only give Pep Pep Pep from MAC 1 star 🌟 ( and that is being generous)

Betty, the smartest dog I know. She is always right here, next to me on the dining room floor rug. She has her “monkey” with her in this picture, which is the case 99% of the time, she has her “monkey” right with her.
She really is the smartest dog I know. So many things I just tell her, and she will do. It’s like she can read my mind and knows exactly what to do. I love this dog and I’m so happy I have her. She is a lot of company.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I like your nails short as well as long.This is not a “Judi” colour but the name is great.What is it with MAC nail polishes,from what I’ve read,they are very hit or miss.Betty the dog is so cute and a great friend.Linda xo


Thanks Linda. Would you believe I’ve had a hard time getting used to them? At work I kept hitting the wrong buttons because I’m so used to my nails being longer. But I adjusted before my shift was over.
Yes, Betty is a doll!
Thank you — Judi

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
