Introducing the latest ongoing collection from Pretty Serious – Naileontology! We’ll be unearthing vintage classics and creating new works of art inspired by these long lost treasures! Each selected vintage shade will be tirelessly reworked to give each polish our flawless Pretty Serious formula as well as touch of our own unmistakable style.
This collection is the brainchild of Kaz Harris, Owner of Pretty Serious and blogger at Pretty Random, a vintage nail blog. Pretty Serious has always been inspired by the brands that shook the nail world back in the 90’s with edgy never before seen shades and in your face marketing campaigns and our brand new Naileontology line is an extension of her obsession with all things discontinued! Kaz has dug deep into her stash of thousands and selected three of her favourite long gone shades to restyle with Pretty Serious flair, and we know you’ll find the results absolutely breathtaking!
So join our team of Naileontologists on our first excavation as we dig up the following new additions to the Pretty Serious family!
The following exhibits are now on display in the Pretty Serious Museum of Naileontology.
Eye of Copernicus
[ahy ov koh-pur-ni-kuh s]
It is said that Nicolaus Copernicus spent so much time staring into the night sky, unlocking the truths of our own solar system, that the light of the stars were absorbed through his telescope and were forever captured in its lens. The inky blue Eye with silver microglitter flecks can be viewed in our Naileontology museum, and you can purchase your very own replica in the Pretty Serious souvenir store before you leave.
[kh-E-pri s am-yuh-lit]
Khepri, the ancient Egyptian Scarab God, was once believed to have pushed the sun across the sky and down into the underworld, emerging with it the next day, moving the sun into the morning sky. He was associated with rebirth, renewal and resurrection, and scarab beetle amulets were placed on the hearts of the dead during mummification. The most powerful of these amulets was said to be created by Khepri himself and shines with the glimmering golden green shimmer of the Scarab God himself. The amulet is now on display in our Naileontology museum, with high quality replica’s made with modern day technology available in the Pretty Serious souvenir store.
The Dragon’s Curse
[th-uh drag-uh n s kurs]
Many thousands of years ago, a powerful mecha-dragon and his many minions are said to have come close to enslaving the world. The legend tells of their defeat at the hands of a teenage boy who hunted down the mecha-dragon to his lair and slayed him with his sword. However, the dragon’s last breath was cursed, transforming the boy into a man sized lizard. We have captured the last remnants of The Dragon’s Curse from the recently discovered mecha-dragons lair and bottled it up for display in the museum of Naileontology. You can buy your own replica bottle from the Pretty Serious souvenir store, which is completely unavoidable if you plan to exit the building.
Kaz is a woman after my own heart with shades inspired by polishes long gone. The formula is spot on—they all only require two coats and apply like butter. Khepri’s Amulet is far more saturated: you need to see this one in real life.
Due to the current exchange rate between the US dollar and the Australian dollar, it’s a great time to pick up any of these gorgeous polishes. One polish at $9.95 AUD is equal to $7.77 USD (as of 2/28/2015), so take advantage of this great deal!
