Pretty Serious Santa's Sunburn Swatch

Today I have another gorgeous red to share with you, this is the red hot Pretty Serious Santa's Sunburn. Santa's Sunburn was released as part of the Christmas Without Snow (Holiday 2012) collection, but it's definitely a fiery summer red! Since Pretty Serious is an Australian brand, Christmas coincides with the sizzling Australian summer!

Santa's Sunburn is a stunning saturated red so bright that it practically glows. I can't say that the red leans in any particular direction because it is so overwhelmingly red that it doesn't seem either blue or orange toned. The finish is a fine shimmer, very smooth and blackened around the edges. For some reason the photos make it look like there were visible brushstrokes, but there aren't any in person. The formula was smooth and easy to apply, this is two coats plus topcoat.

Another thing I love about Pretty Serious polishes is the adorable box they come in! This one is the Christmas edition, where Daphne (the Pretty Serious mascot/poster girl) is wearing an adorable hat and holiday outfit.

This is a red not for the faint of heart! This is the hottest, brightest red I own, and completely unique in my collection.
Pretty Serious Santa's Sunburn retails for $9.95 AUD and is available directly from Pretty Serious (AUS) and also from Llarowe (USA).
