In Like a Lion, Out Like a Hippie

So, greens wrap up for March.

I've got to say, I've enjoyed this time around. Let me know what you think? I'd love to know.
I know there were no holos, but that's going to be coming up: longer days and more sunshine lend themselves to swatching holos.

Back a couple entries ago, I blogged (<= link) about Pretty Serious doing a Naileontology collection, an homage to very hard to find polishes that are still perennial favorites.

Here is one you might want to take a second look at:

Pretty Serious Khepri's Amulet

This is an apparent dupe of Revlon Street Wear Hippie Trippy. I mean, it could be, but in all my wanderings on the Interwebz, I could not find a photo of this polish. 

Meanwhile, this polish just knocked my ever lovin' wig off!

Three coats, could of been two, no top coat. Shine on princess!

From the emerald depths to the bright sea foam green, this shimmer polish makes zero apologies for being a straight up traditional shimmer. Witness!

I seriously could not take a bad picture of this polish! 

Much love, much, much love. Formula is dense, yet it's easy to manage, it covers and self levels. Excellent coverage, delightful formula. Delightful.

Browsing the Pretty Serious Naileontology collection and aren't sure what to get? This is your winner. Let's be honest, you can dupe the Essie Starry Starry Night with a bottle of Essie Silver Boullions and a good navy. The Creme de Menthe dupe isn't 100% as close as I'd have hoped. This one, though, doesn't seem to have anything to live up to. Well, let's be honest: Revlon Street Wear polish has a pretty slow, sheer formula (in my experience, they don't work me up into a collecting frenzy after wearing them) and this color is so rare I can't even find a photo with which to compare!

I'd love to see a really nice original swatch of yet another one that got away, but whatever it looks like, this one is a stand alone great polish.

I think I need to get more serious about Pretty Serious Nail Polish!

As I said in my previous entry about their version of OPI Creme de Menthe (posted here) they ship from Australia for a super fair price, and a great selection of polishes. I am glad I bought this one, as for some reason I wavered because I couldn't figure out which one it was. 

Thanks for reading my version of March Madness!! Greens are so lovely. I hope you enjoyed!
