Pretty Serious ~ Seasonal Sunset
Rusty jelly base packed with bright golden and copper microglitter
I originally showed this polish in this post. I remained somewhat intrigued by this polish, and was eager to find out if I couldn’t actually present the polish a bit better on my nails, even though this warm, copper orange isn’t really my colour. So here goes.
I decided to use this in a gradient. I used it as the “middle colour”, surrounded by Douglas’ “Ready to go”, which is a beautiful orange shimmer, and Sally Hansen Insta Dri “Wined Up”, which is a deep burgundy shimmer. I thought these two would be great company for my Pretty Serious polish.
And here’s how my gradient turned out. There’s one coat of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine topcoat over it:
See? That’s much better when the polish gets to compliment a couple of sisters! :)
I wanted to stamp a palm tree over this, to make it look like a sunset, but the only two palm trees I have, have got “California” written on them, and that was definitely not the look I was after. Instead I found a sun on Bundlemonster’s plate BM01, and I stamped with a no name black polish:
There’s one coat of Poshé top coat over it to seal it up:
I’m amazed over how nicely this goes with my skin tone!
And here are the polish sisters in crime:
So, what do you think? I must admit that I’m more than pleased with how this turned out, despite that fact that I didn’t get palm trees on it. I need to look for a plate with such a design on it :)
