Yesterday, I shared the big news about designing my collaboration shade, Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn! (If you haven’t seen it already, click the link to see tons of swatches.)
(If you follow me on Instagram and other social media, you probably saw some posts showing you how the polish has many different personalities, depending on the lighting and angle.)
Today, I’m excited to tell you about the collection it’s part of!
The Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! Collection will launch soon on the Pretty Serious Cosmetics website and other retailers where Pretty Serious nail polish is sold! (I’ve listed the other retailers at the bottom of this post, after the press release.)
- Today (Tuesday July 15) at 7 pm EDT
- If you’re in Australia where the company is, it’ll be Wednesday July 16 at 9 am AEST
This collection features the first trio of blogger shades:
- Swatch And Learn (my shade)
- Undercover Mermaid (by Lab Muffin)
- Stuck in the Middle (by The Polish Haven)
Everyone went above and beyond, coming up with colours that are so beautiful and special!
A huge thank you again to Karen (aka Kaz) for making this nailphile’s dream come true – it’s a huge honour! (Haha, and now I can cross one thing off the Bucket List!)
Check out the rest of this post to see the promo pictures of all 3 shades in the Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! Collection, as well as a little write-up of each blogger and colour.
Edit: Until Friday August 15, 2014 at 11:59 pm EDT, enter my worldwide giveaway to win 1 of 4 autographed bottles of Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn!
Below is the official press release sent to me by Pretty Serious Cosmetics:
SWATCH AND LEARN by MARY from SWATCH AND LEARN
Since beginning SwatchAndLearn.com in 2010, my goal to communicate the importance of striving for happiness instead of perfection still remains strong. When I designed the nail-polish shade, Swatch And Learn, I was inspired by my loyal blog readers who are so diverse, supportive, and talented! Over the years, you’ve graced me with encouragement and love, which helped me persevere through many low points in my offline life. When I began blogging, I never knew how rewarding it would be! It has been the most beautiful and humbling surprise, and I thank every single one of you! My nail polish is green to represent my favourite colour, and when you look at your nails at different angles and in various lighting, you’ll see other hues sparkle and dance like a dream. These surprising flashes represent my readers, who light up my life and amaze me every day.
UNDERCOVER MERMAID by MICHELLE from LAB MUFFIN
Michelle is the blogger behind Lab Muffin, and blogs occasionally at Polish or Perish as well. She’s been blogging about the science behind beauty and trying all the products for 2.5 years. Undercover Mermaid is a work safe polish with a secret – from a distance it’s all sophisticated purplely taupe, but up close you can’t miss the irrepressible blue-green sparkle.
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by KRISTY from THE POLISH HAVEN
Kristy is the blogger formerly known as The Polish Haven, who now posts her beautiful swatches on her Instagram of the same name. Student, mother and nurse, this superwoman is responsible for the insanely gorgeous and popular Pretty Serious shade Naughty Night Shift Nurse. When we asked her to come up with a follow up, she wanted to come up with a stunner and she sure delivered! Stuck In The Middle is a bright fuchsia jelly with iridescent glass fleck sparkle.
The first trio from the Stop! Collaborate and Listen! collection will be available 9am AEST Wednesday the 16th July from Pretty Serious and selected retailers. $9.95 for 11ml/0.37fl.oz.
The Pretty Serious website ships worldwide.
Below are some of the selected retailers who also carry Pretty Serious. I’m not sure if they’ll be stocking the collection right at the launch, but they’re worth mentioning, in case you want some alternative sources.
- Harlow & Co. (Canada)
- Overall Beauty & Color4Nails (USA)
- Beserk & Makeup Express (Australia)
- The Nailista Shop (Belgium)
- Mei Mei’s Signatures (Singapore)
- Hypnotic Polish (Netherlands)
- Norway Nails (Norway)
- Sally Magpies (UK)
Undercover Mermaid looks like such a cool polish – I love how the classy shade has a fun twist! And Stuck in the Middle is a real showstopper that’ll surely turn heads for all the right reasons!
I’m so honoured to be part of this amazing collaboration alongside talented women who also share a passion for nail polish! 🙂
Thank you to all my amazing readers for supporting me – I dedicate Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn to you! 🙂
