Pretty Serious is an Australian indie brand, and is rapidly becoming one of my favorite indie brands. I love everything about them, the bottle, the brush, the colors and finishes... cute names and wonderful customer service... I just want to own them all!
Nightmaren is red with beautiful gold shimmer. The shimmer is fine and seems to glow without showing brushstrokes or looking frosty. It's the perfect sort of shimmer.
I just love the color of Nightmaren, it's such a pretty soft red. Usually when a red is soft it's because it has a strong pink hue, but somehow Nighmaren manages to be soft without looking pink. It's a very true red, more orange hued than either pink or red. It's perfect.
The formula on Nightmaren was a dream (hehe). It was very smooth, didn't pool at my cuticles, and was perfectly opaque in two coats. It's almost opaque in one coat, and great for nail art. The dry time was great, and I didn't notice any staining (but my poor nails are so stained already that I shouldn't even comment on staining).
Isn't it just gorgeous?!? I've already worn Nightmaren a few times and I know I'll wear it again and again. It looks so flattering and beautiful that I just can't get enough. Have you tried Pretty Serious polishes? If you haven't, you should!
*Nightmaren is available from Pretty Serious Cosmetics for $9.95 AUS and recently from Llarowe for $12 USD.
