Pretty Serious Cosmetics collaborate and Listen Part 2



*Press Sample.

Hi there everyone!!!
Today I have the second release of Collaborate and listen from Pretty Serious Cosmetics .
This series of polishes are collaborations with bloggers and Pretty Serious cosmetics. The first release can be seen Here. 
This time Pretty Serious Cosmetics collaborates with Scrangie, Serenity Nails and Polly Polish.

Lets have a look at them shall we???

Herald of the Skeleton War- This was a collab with Scrangie. I honestly do not know why the polish is named as it is? but it really does not matter and I love green polish. Im not 100% in love with this combo of purple and blue glitters in it....but I do love my greens. When I first swatched it I did 3 coats of the polish by itself. I found that it was "too much"with the glitter so instead I decided to swatch over OPI Christmas gone plaid. now saying that I realise I should have grabbed Pretty Serious Unmentionables as that is a perfect green to go with it! Anyways one coat of Herald of the Skeleton War over the green base with a crystal top coat (BEFORE my stupid cat Loki managed to knock it off my desk and smash it.....)I found was a perfect match and did not look to overwhelming on the nail.
I also tried it with a matte top coat as well.

Itksuarpok- This was a collab with Polly Polish  I looked on her blog to find out the inspiration behind the name of the polish this is what she said.....
 "Iktsuarpok is an Icelandic word that describes the feeling of anticipation of a visitor arriving imminently, thus leading you to keep looking outside to see if they’re there yet"
Is a mid grey creme with fine glass flakies throughout. When I saw the polish the first thing I thought was it reminded me of a darker version of Illamasqua raindrops. Which I love because the Illamasqua polish is way too pale for my skin but this colour is great!
I only needed 2 coat for full opacity and I used my poor broken bottle of crystal TC.

Kashmir- Is a collab with Serenity Nails. Kashmir was inspired by a led zeppelin song from what Serenity nails has written. a dark rich colour.
The polish is what would call a deep purple burgundy comprised of metallic pigment and flecks.You can see red and even a slight blue hue to the polish. I also could see fine orangy flakies through out, but these were hard to capture in photos.
This one reminded me a lot of Chanel Taboo with its colour hue. 
I used 2 coats for opacity and then crystal TC.
