Yesterday, I received the press release for the Pretty Serious Cosmetics Christmas Without Snow Collection!
It made me think about how I immediately associate snow with Christmas. Being a Canadian, winters often spell snow. (Last year, however, was pretty strange. We hardly got any snow, and the weather was extremely mild!)
I’m the type of person who likes to admire the snow…from inside where it’s cozy and warm. 😉 I dislike shovelling snow (I’m terrible at it), I feel the cold as though I’m an elderly woman, I can never fall asleep when my chicken feet are cold, and I’m really bad at skiing.
Yeah, maybe I need to move to California…or perhaps I need to put my pride aside and purchase a hot-water bottle to warm up my bed. *Thinks about it while knitting in a rocking chair* (Okay, I don’t have a rocking chair, but I’ve loved them ever since I was a little kid. Yes, I was born an old lady, I suppose…)
Going back to the Pretty Serious Cosmetics Christmas Without Snow Collection…It reminded me that not everyone associates snow with Christmas. In some places, it’s balmy. Maybe they make a ‘sandman’ instead of a ‘snowman’.
Of the 6 shades in the Christmas Without Snow Collection, the ones that excite me the most are Blue Gums on Boxing Day, Party by the Pool, Hot Summer Nights, and Seasonal Sunset. Haha, that’s practically the entire collection!
I put together the below group shot so you could see all the colours together. 🙂
There are 6 shades in the Pretty Serious Christmas Without Snow Collection:
- Seasonal Sunset
- Blue Gums on Boxing Day
- Hot Summer Nights
- Party by the Pool
- Santa’s Sunburn
- Twinkling Lights
Here’s the official press release sent to me by Pretty Serious Cosmetics:
Christmas without snow? What a preposterous notion! For the rest of the world, maybe. But down here in Australia, we love to crack out the beer and boardshorts and soak up the sun at this very special time of year. We wanted to capture the spirit of an Aussie Christmas with our very first seasonal collection consisting of six amazing new nail shades to help you celebrate Christmas the Aussie way!

It seems that Santa’s Sunburn is the best type of sunburn! This jolly red foil sparkles with tiny flecks of silver.
Seasonal Sunset’s rusty jelly base is packed to bursting with bright golden and copper microglitter particles and the result is simply breathtaking. It’s a Christmas sunset on your nails!
