Pet Names Collection by Pretty Serious

Amazing creme polishes by Pretty Serious. Over all these polishes are fantastic. They did vary a bit in formula and consistency, but for the most part each polish is an easy two coater.

"Stud Muffin" - A flawless red polish. This one was almost a one coater, but two coats resulted in a fully opaque finish. It was even glossy with out a top coat. Pictured is two coat with no top coat.

"Honey Puff" - I am really impressed with the creamy yellow. Pictured is two coats with no top coat.

"Snugglebutt" - I love this amazing purple! Pictured is two coats with no top coat.

"Sugar Cakes" - This is such a bright, candy pink polish. This polish had the thickest formula out of the collection and was the only one to dry matte due to its neon qualities. Pictured is two coats with a glossy top coat on my middle and little finger. My pointer and ring finger were left to dry naturally. It is hard to tell with the lighting from the light box.

"Pookie" - Loving this aqua blue! One of my favourites in colour and formula. I found this one to be slightly more on the crelly side, but still very creamy. Pictured is two coats, with no top coat.

"Cuddle Bunny" - A soft lavender creme. This is the only polish from the collection that had a soft shimmer to it. Amazing formula on this polish. Pictured is two coats with no top coat.

Water Marble using "Snugglebutt" "Sugar Cakes" and "Pookie."  I had a feeling that these polishes would marble really well.  "Sugar Cakes" didn't work too well. It didn't spread like I would have wanted it to.

Tile nail art using "Pookie" and "Cuddle Bunny."  These beautiful opaque polishes worked brilliantly for nail art.

Gradient using "Stud Muffin" and "Honey Puff." I haven't done a gradient is a long time, but these polishes worked beautifully!

Well meaning but ultimately quite awkward pet names... Now available from Pretty Serious.

Along with the Pet Names Collection, I was also sent Absence and Presence. The perfect partners for all different types of nail art. The black polish water marbled quite well, but the white didn't spread as well. They should also be good for stamping, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. 

"Presence" - A flawless white polish. I found the first coat to be completely opaque, but because I like to use thin coats the first coat was just a little bit patchy. I found the second coat gave a nice smooth glossy finish. Pictured is two coats with no top coat.

"Absence" - A flawless black polish. Perfect one coater!

These great polishes are now available from Pretty Serious.
