Pretty Serious Nail Mail

Excitement alert excitement alert!

When I posted my photos of Pretty Serious Daphne's Birthday back in May I received a 20% off coupon code to use on future Pretty Serious purchases. Pretty Serious Cosmetics is a fabulous indie polish and artisanal cosmetics maker from Australia with a worldwide following now thanks to the internet. Well they've released two new collections since then and that 20% off code has just been burning a hole in my metaphysical pocket (I'm renaming that no-buy of mine, "low-buy" m'kay?) the whole time so I finally ordered four more polishes.

They're heeeeere!

happy box 'o polish from Pretty Serious Cosmetics with holographic (hard to see that in this pic) Daphne bumper sticker whoop!

*happy sigh* time to get swatching!

What I got, with descriptions from the Pretty Serious website:

88mph -You're about to see some serious shit! 88mph is our tribute to the Delorean from Back to the Future. It is a metallic foil mixed with gold, copper and silver with a touch of holographic, time ripping sparks. Great Scott! From the new Hit the Road collection.

BSOD - All your friends will stop and stare at this beautiful blue jelly packed to bursting with blue glitter. Don't make the critical error of passing this one up! Disclaimer: Any instance of Blue Screen of Death while purchasing this product is a complete coincidence. Quite possibly the coolest coincidence ever, but still a coincidence. From the Hello World! collection.

Morning Java - Rich coffee brown with golden bronze flecks, this polish is bound to speak your language! From the Hello World! collection.

My Darlin' Clementine - Now y'all know what Huckleberry Hound's been singin' about all this time! A new addition to the Seriously Random collection.

Nail mail is all kinds of wonderful but never more so when it's a box of handmade custom-blended polish from a favorite indie polish maker.

They've got mine!
