With Christmas just an ole Saint Nick wink away, I thought that I’d share with you swatches of the festive Pretty Serious Ghosts of Christmas Past Collection that recently arrived in my mailbox! (You can find the collection available to purchase on the Pretty Serious website.)
While it’s a holiday collection, these colours can be worn any time of year, so don’t keep them in the dark corners of your Helmer. They want to be taken out for a night on the town. Who wouldn’t?
My favourite, while difficult to choose among so many beauties, is Enchanted Evergreen (the dark green) because my affinity for green nail polish knows no bounds. Gimme, gimme, gimme! 😉 If you’re a green lover, I’m sure you’ll love it, too, because it’s richly pigmented, and it has darkness and depth without looking like a black polish.
Hmm…but Peace on Earth is tied for first place. It’s an ethereal seafoam green that has delicate flashes of pink. These flashes remind me a lot of the inside of some pearlescent seashells. Magical and fairy-esque don’t even begin to describe its appearance.
You can never go wrong with a classic holiday red like Velvet Bow (a rock-and-roll metallic) or Verry Merry Berry (a super shiny creme).
Make nails sing a Christmas melody with silver (Fairy Lights) and gold (Tarnished Tinsel).
Then, there are the two top coats that can completely transform your existing manicure, taking it from strolling down the sidewalk to modelling on Mars (in a good way)! Hehe, oh the places that my mind sometimes goes. 😉
Jack Frost doesn’t nip at my nose. Instead, this iridescent glitter top coat makes my heart race like Usain Bolt! I tried it over Enchanting Evergreen, and it created a blue galactic wonder on my nails! (If you like my swatch of it, you will love it even more in person.)
Mojito is the other top coat. It has fine green shimmer, so adding it to any manicure will bring out its inner ribbit. 🙂
If some of you aren’t already familiar with Pretty Serious nail polishes, they’re cruelty-free and vegan. They also don’t contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or DBP.
P.S. There’s still time to enter my Zoya Enchanted Collection worldwide giveaway, but hurry – it ends December 31! (Remember, there will be three winners!)

Note: In person, the delicate pink flash also appears on the nail, not just in the bottle. Photos don’t do this baby any justice!

Such gorgeous, fun colors for the holidays! I love Pretty Serious polishes! They look great on you as always. Thanks for sharing with us!
I love how Pretty Serious doesn’t necessarily follow the nail trends. The brand carves out their own path in the industry, which makes them interesting to watch!
Hi Mary, as usual, your swatches and photography are gorgeous! I’ve never tried this brand of polish before, but a couple of these shades may nudge me along to buy: “Peace On Earth” and “Fairy Lights”. I’m ready for those soft winter moods and colors!
Thank you so much for the high compliment! 🙂
Pretty Serious is an amazing indie brand that you’ll enjoy. They have such a diverse array of colours and finishes, plus the owner of the company is a total nail junkie…hehe! It’s always a good sign when the person behind the brand is as obsessed with nail polish as the consumers who buy their products. Two big thumbs up…and two big toes up, too! 😉
These are stunning! Every single shade looks great and your nail shape is killer! Love Love Love this collection!!

Hey LemonBerry Blog!
Thank you! 😀 That’s so sweet of you to say! I still feel like I have a lot to learn about nail shaping, but over the years, I’m gradually improving my technique.
Lovely swatches, as usual!
My favorite is Enchanted Evergreen, with Peace on Earth being a close second. It reminded me of ILNP Valentina.
The collection, as a whole, is very pretty! I’ve never tried this brand, but I’m tempted to buy some of their polishes.
I highly recommend this brand. Not only do they have consistent formulations, but they put out a lot of interesting colours that you won’t find in collections by major brands. Lots of hidden treasures here!
