Pretty Serious - Crystal Lake

Hi there! Today I have a review of another Pretty Serious nail polish! This one is from one of their Halloween collections. I'm a huge horror film fanatic and am into all things spooky and scary, so I always swoon over Halloween polishes.

This is Crystal Lake, from the Killer Fangirls collection which came out for Halloween 2013. This is a pretty unique polish, it has shards of foily blue shimmer, mega metallic blue hex glitters, greenish square glitters, and larger iridescent pale yellowish-greenish iridescent hexes. The glitter in this melds together into a foily sheet of bling, crazy beautiful. This is three coats. You could also layer this glitter for a more subtle look but I chose to make it opaque.

It looks so different in the sun than it does in low light, I had to show you a shade picture so you could see how cool the iridescent hex glitters look in the blue base.

Each polish from the Killer Fangirls collection comes with a signed art card* from the artist who does the Pretty Serious artwork, Leigh Young. The card shows a pinup girl for each horror series the polish is based on, so dope! This one is of course based on the Friday the 13th movie. *While supplies last!

Another thing I just LOVE about this is that the Halloween polishes come in different boxes than regular PS polishes, designed to match the theme. The green box is for the Halloween polishes and the purple is for their regular shades. How freaking cute is that???

I'm excited to see what Pretty Serious comes out with for Halloween this year! You can purchase their lacquers on their website for $9.50 each with international shipping available (they are based in Australia). They are a vegan and cruelty free brand. What do you think of this pretty glitter shade? Do you like Halloween and scary stuff as much as I do?

  9. One of my dreams is to visit America during Halloween - it isn't a holiday here and it would be so much fun to experience it once in my life!

  10. BEAUTIFUL color. I've just had to remind myself that I have far too many blues to justify purchasing this: otherwise would've had to run off and get it immediately!
