Pretty Serious Pinup Perfection Swatches And Review

Pretty Serious Pin up Perfection

Disclosure: contains press samples 

Let’s face it:  crazy nail polish colors aren’t for everyone.  Some people are just traditionalists at heart, and that’s perfectly fine!  If you’re not up for flashy manicures, Pretty Serious has the collection for you: Pinup Perfection!

Pinup Perfection is the nail polish version of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes:  a selection of traditional colors that can take you from work to nightlife.  You can start out the workday with Perfection Projection then close down your favorite bar while wearing Love Bite.


Looks That Kill (one coat) is a dark brick red crème.  Yes, you read that right: it’s a one-coater!  This would be perfect for an unexpected date night.


Love Bite (three coats) is a vampy blood red jelly.  This jelly applies flawlessly in three coats…I truly hope Pretty Serious continues to release more jellies with this formula.


Irresistibly Pink (two coats) is a bright medium pink crème.  This is a perfect girls’ night out pedicure color.


Dangerous Curves Ahead (two coats) is an old rose crème.  It’s perfect for a demure, office look.


Perfection Projection (two coats) is a grayish taupe crème.  This could be an edgy job interview manicure.

All the cremes have an easy, breezy application and are opaque in at least two coats.  I also used the new top coat from Pretty Serious, Aqua Coat, over all the swatches.  Aqua Coat gives polishes a perfectly glazed wet look, but isn’t a quick-dry formula.  If you’re rather impatient like me, I’ve paired it with the Pretty Serious quick-dry top coat, Crystal Coat and have gotten great results.

Pretty Serious Nail Lacquers are vegan and cruelty free. Pick Pinup Perfection for $44.77 for the entire collection, or individual bottles are $9.95.

If you’ve got a close friend or family member that’s a bit of a traditionalist and is hard to shop for, look no further!  Time has flown so fast lately that holiday shopping is only a few months away…might as well get started!
