Pretty Serious: Stop! Collaborate & Listen, and Crystal Coat

Pretty Serious is back with a brand new invention! Oh man, do I have some gorgeous and exciting stuff to share with you all today?! (Hint: Yes, yes I do!) Here is the new blogger collaboration collection from Pretty Serious, "Stop! Collaborate & Listen!", a set of three fantastic collaborative colors that are sure to grab a hold of you tightly!

Pretty Serious Stuck in the Middle

Stuck in the Middle is a beautiful, rich berry jelly filled with blue and fuchsia shifting sparkle. This polish is amazing, it's so sparkly and jewel-like! It reminds me of dazzling, juicy pomegranate seeds. The formula was just perfect, and was super smooth, even, and opaque. Pictured here with three coats and one coat of Crystal Coat Quick Dry Top Coat.

Pretty Serious Swatch and Learn

Swatch and Learn is a beautiful moss green jam-packed with amazing shifting shimmer that gives it a strong copper/pink flash along with a subtle blue sparkle. This is such an incredible, multi-dimensional color that looks amazing in every light and angle! The formula was also excellent, perfectly smooth and even, and opaque in 3-4 coats. Shown here with four coats, and one coat of Crystal Coat.

Pretty Serious Undercover Mermaid

Undercover Mermaid is a lovely soft grey-leaning-lavender/taupe crelly filled with green-to-blue shifting flakies and gold/green shimmer. I'm so in love with this color! It's super wearable and work-friendly, with just the right amount of flash and fun (and flakies!) The formula was wonderful, with perfectly smooth application. Undercover Mermaid was opaque and even in three coats, and is pictured here with four coats plus a coat of Crystal Coat.

Pretty Serious "Crystal Coat" Quick Dry Top Coat

The Crystal Coat Quick Dry Top Coat is seriously my new favorite top coat, pun intended! It has a wonderful consistency, self-levels perfectly, and dries amazingly fast-- I am truly impressed! I'm typically a Seche Vite girl, but sometimes it's just way too thick and can be difficult to apply and even out when it really starts to thicken up. I would absolutely recommend Crystal Coat for polishes with a holo or shimmer finish, and ones that don't need a heavy top coat to smooth them out. Crystal Coat would also work great as a nice, thin top coat to apply every other day to extend the life of your mani.

The variety of beautiful finishes and colors in this collection, along with their perfect formulas, make this another truly fantastic collection from Pretty Serious that you definitely don't want to miss out on. And from what I can tell, we might be able to expect a few more blogger collaboration colors in the future-- I can't wait! What are your favorite colors from the "Stop! Collaborate and Listen!" collection?
