After the gorgeous first Naileontology collection from Pretty Serious, I was totally revved up for collection number 2, which I have here today! Again, there’s the fun game of trying to work out which vintage polishes inspired these shades. Unfortunately this time I was pretty rubbish at guessing…
Blood of Knossos is my favourite. It’s a rich, metallic olive green that reminds me of L’Oreal Majestic Green, one of my fave L’Oreal shades ever, but darker. There are a lot of colours that are in this colour family, so it’s hard to guess what the exact inspiration is, so I’m just going to say Revlon Streetwear Toad and leave it at that.
The Crimson Pearl is a blood red creme with blue-purple shimmer. I love creme-shimmer polishes where the shades don’t quite match! I don’t know enough about how these vintage polishes look in real life, but I’d say this is in the vein of Chanel Mythe or Hard Candy Scam or Naturistics Aura Pearl.
Ichi Hanami is a bright pink polish with silver shimmer – I’m not sure if it’s glass fleck or microglitter? It’s hella shiny, whatever it is! It lies super smoothly on the nail. My guess would be that it’s inspired by Urban Decay Big Bang.
You can buy the Naileontology polishes on the Pretty Serious Website now!
