Twinsie Tuesday ~ Beach Inspired ~ Pretty Serious Party by the Pool

Purchased by Me

Hey dolls! The theme for this week was to be inspired by the beach. My initial thought was to do a cool gradient, but I didn’t have time for it over the weekend. I ended up going with a color that reminds me of the ocean. Pretty Serious Party by the Pool is a gorgeous teal jelly that is filled with blue and green sparkles. Unfortunately, the formula did not live up to the gorgeousness of the polish. This may be one of the worst formulas I’ve ever tried. As I polished more nails, the formula got thicker. It became goopy on the nail and there was also some slight dragging. Two coats of Party by the Pool were used in the photos below (because I couldn’t bare a third).

Party by the Pool reminds me of when the sun makes it look like the ocean water is sparkling. Such a pretty polish, but the formula was a pain. What’s the worst polish you’ve ever used formula-wise? Be sure to check out how the other TT ladies interpreted this theme.

*Update* I contacted Pretty Serious after they saw my photo on Instagram. They have heard about the formula issues and the polish is now being reformulated. I was given a refund as well as promised a new bottle of Party by the Pool when it is ready. The customer service was excellent, so I would recommend contacting them if you have a bad bottle.
