Pretty Serious ‘Type 40′…and some overdue updates

It’s been months since I last blogged, I know. Last year was a pretty big one, with a wedding, a (seemingly never ending) house extension and some pretty major business changes so it’s probably not surprising that blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.

Introducing my Pretty Serious collaboration polish: “Iktsuarpok”

Pretty Serious Stop, Collaborate and Listen collection - MY Polly Polish Collaboration 'Iktsuarpok'

Good things come to those who wait, and this one was worth the wait! It’s been about two years in the making, plus two visits to Kaz and Ben of Pretty Serious Cosmetics in Australia (that’s not an essential part of working on a collaboration shade I’ll grant you, but it was as good an excuse as any to visit friends) but ‘iktsuarpok’ is finally here. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Pretty Serious Museum of Naileontology

Pretty Serious Museum of Naileontology collection

The latest collection from Pretty Serious is one that I hope (and know) will grow, but it starts with these three beauties. The Museum of Naileontology might not be a tourist attraction you’re familiar with, primarily because this collection is the brainchild of Kaz Harris, Owner of Pretty Serious and blogger at Pretty Random, a vintage nail blog. Pretty Serious has always been inspired by the brands that shook the nail world back in the 90’s with edgy never before seen shades and in your face marketing campaigns and our brand new Naileontology line is an extension of her obsession with all things discontinued! Kaz has dug deep into her stash of thousands and selected three of her favourite long gone shades to restyle with Pretty Serious flair.

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree Collection

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree

I know, I know, it’s been a while. Lots going on outside the world of blogging for me lately, but I did swatch these around Christmas (as my nail length shows – they’re now pretty short) but have only just found some time to write a post for them! The polishes in this post are the offerings from Pretty Serious Cosmetics for the festive season of 2014, the Rooftop Soiree collection (fun fact: I mistype ‘roof’ as ‘foof’ every time).

Following up the beautiful Pinup collection of cremes are these bright and beautiful staple shades from Pretty Serious, the Brand New Undies.
