Sorry for being MIA. The past week has been very busy and stressful. If anyone ever finds a cure for migraines... please, tell me!
Onto some more awesome news. Kaz over at Pretty Random is gearing up for the launch of her line, Pretty Serious Cosmetics. Today I have the polishes from her inaugural collection, Hello World to show you which I won from Kaz's haiku competition last year :D
Check out the lovely packaging!
Now onto the swatches!
Morning Java. Two coats. A shimmery caramel brown with flecks of golden microglitter. My favourite of the collection and also one of my new favourite browns. It's gorgeous. Brown and gold are so good together! This has both shimmer and glitter yet it is not bumpy looking at all. Love.
Forbidden Fruit. Two coats. White creme with iridescent silver shimmer. Actually, it's not a pure white. It has a strong blue-grey cast. Most pretty! The formula on this was a little fluffy - what I mean by that is it felt like the polish had been whipped (haha) and was light and airy. Still creamy and opaque though, only needed two coats. Not too shabby for a white!
Tux. Two coats. Black with a subtle teal shimmer. This is really dark and rich. There was a slight purple duochrome in the bottle but I didn't catch it on the nail. Tux reminds me of a smooth shimmer version of OPI Unripened.
BSOD. Three coats. Fine blue glitter in a cobalt jelly. It's insanely sparkly. One word... depth. If you like blue glitters, you'll definitely love this. Beautiful!
CGA. Two coats. A medium pink creme with blue-green shimmer. My pictures show this lighter and cooler than it appears IRL. Also, the shimmer looks silver here. I swear it's not! Very lovely but I'm still undecided about how I like it with my skin tone. I'll have to wear it as a full mani to see.
VT100. Two coats. A pine green with heavy gold shimmer. I love yellow based greens! A close second favourite for me. The shimmer makes this polish. It's so dense and almost resembles a glass-fleck or microglitter. Completely droolworthy.
And don't forget, all these shades come in a matching loose eyeshadow and lipgloss! They'll be available for sale on Monday at www.pretty-serious.com. Also be sure to check Kaz's blog (one of my favourites!) to keep updated.
Woohoo for Aussie-based companies! And woohoo for Kaz!
