Lookit: Pretty Serious Christmas Without Snow 2012 Collection


I don't know how my readers feel about press releases (please let me know if you want more!), and I don't post many of them--I only post looks at upcoming collections that I'm pretty excited about myself. This one I think is pretty darned cool.

Pretty Serious is an Australian Indie line, and I only have three of their polishes (so far!)--two from their Halloween collection, and one specialty release that went to benefit a charity. I've found them to be very pretty and of good quality so wanted to share with you this information I received about their Christmas collection:

Here is what they have to say about the collection:

"Christmas without snow? What a preposterous notion! For the rest of the world, maybe. But down here in Australia, we love to crack out the beer and boardshorts and soak up the sun at this very special time of year. We wanted to capture the spirit of an Aussie Christmas with our very first seasonal collection consisting of six amazing new nail shades to help you celebrate Christmas the Aussie way!

BLUE GUMS ON BOXING DAY - This rich green shines with a mesmerizing blue shimmer! Perfect for those post Christmas celebrations!
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS - Shining stars sparkle in the velvet sky. This inky blue jelly with silver micro glitter is a nightscape on your nails!
PARTY BY THE POOL - Splash about in this gorgeous peacock jelly, swimming with flecks of green and blue!
SANTA'S SUNBURN - It seems that Santa's Sunburn is the best type of sunburn! This jolly red foil sparkles with tiny flecks of silver.
SEASONAL SUNSET - Seasonal Sunset's rusty jelly base is packed to bursting with bright golden and copper microglitter particles and the result is simply breathtaking. It's a Christmas sunset on your nails!
TWINKLING LIGHTS - Like stars that sparkle in the sky, or Christmas lights twinkling in the night, Twinkling Lights will add something special to every manicure!

And to make things even cooler, our Christmas polishes will come in cute Christmas themed red holographic boxes with new artwork by our one and only Leigh Young! The perfect stocking stuffer! You won't even need to wrap them!

The CHRISTMAS WITHOUT SNOW collection is available for preorder NOW, with orders starting to ship this week! We are also running our amazing Golden Ticket promotion where ten lucky Christmas orders will receive our super secret limited edition GOLDEN TICKET polish! Only ten made and these will NEVER be sold on our site! Competition details can be found on here.

RRP is $9.95, with a 10% discount for buying all six shades! Pretty Serious Cosmetics also ships worldwide. Check out our site for more details.

Bottle volume is 11ml/0.37 fl.oz. Pretty Serious Cosmetics is 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free."

And here are the pictures of the polishes:

Blue Gums On Boxing Day
 This one is my favorite of the bunch...So ethereal...

Hot Summer Nights
 This one looks like it will be really pretty on, and I don't think I have anything like this...hmmm...

Party By The Pool
 Very pretty with the light sprinkling of glitter...

Santa's Sunburn
 ROFL, this name cracks me up, and I love the silver glitter in it. :)

Seasonal Sunset
 This is pretty, but I'm wondering how close it is to those pretty Jessica polishes that came out in their Fall collection?

Twinkling Lights

This is pretty for many things, but I wish I'd had it when I was doing my 'Festival Of Lights' manicure for my upcoming Christmas challenge...sigh...

And finally, here is how they come packaged:

I think this is a very pretty, non-traditional, but still a teeny bit traditional (the red, lol) collection. Also, I can tell you that when I ordered from them before, I got their polishes in a very reasonable amount of time, so don't be worried about ordering from Australia!

Thanks for looking!
