Pretty Serious Absence, Presence and Ninja-lish-ious Swatches & Review

Howdy, howdy, howdy! Are you glad it's the weekend? I know I am. I've been organizing a huge fundraiser at my job for the last few months that culminated this morning and I'm so exhausted but everything went really well! I don't think I've ever been that stressed before haha! To take my mind off things, I was able to play with some new polishes from Australian indie company Pretty Serious!

Absence is a one coat black crème. Perfect for using by itself or for nail art. This is one of the best black polishes I've ever use, it's so smooth and effortless. Some one-coat blacks can be very thick and hard to get a nice even application, but not this guy! It is also crazy shiny! I used this as a base for my glitter guest post on the BeautyGeeks blog the other day, go check it out if you haven't yet!

Presence is the white crème counterpart to Absence. It's almost-really-super-close to a one coater, but I needed two to completely cover my nails, there was just a tiny bit of streaking where I could still see darker parts with one. Another amazing formula though. A lot of very opaque whites can be more difficult to use, more so than the black ones, because they can be very chalky. This one was not like that, it was very smooth and flowed easily. Also dried shiny! Another one I used as a base for glitters in my BeautyGeeks post :D

Ninja-lish-ious is a limited edition polish created for the Pretty Serious shipping manager in the US, Alicia. They are based in Australia, but have a shipping center in the US for North American customers, so I always get my polishes from her and she's very fast and accurate! Thanks Alicia! This has a navy jelly base with blue, green and shimmering teal glass flecks. Easy to apply, opaque in two shimmery coats.

These are available now on the Pretty Serious website for $9.95 for an 11 mL bottle. I believe the black and white are permanent colors but Ninja is limited edition. Are you looking for your next favorite black or white? You might find it with these ones! And the blue is just a no-brainer, you need it! Talk to you again soon :)
