A Small Announcement…

Okay, who am I kidding. This is a HUGE announcement! Those of you that follow me on twitter may have noticed me alluding to some sort of secret project. Now that the t’s are crossed and the i’s dotted, I can finally FINALLY spill the beans. I gotta tell you… this has been SO HARD to keep secret!

Remember a few months back I wrote a post about realising how awesome you all are and reaching your potential? One of the things that I wanted to do was start my own nail polish line. AND GUESS WHAT?

My brainchild, my baby, the fruit of my figurative loins… Pretty Serious Cosmetics will be available within a couple of months! Can you tell how excited I am? It’s off the charts. I’m grinning as I type this.

My first collection, called Hello World, will consist of six nail polishes along with matching loose eyeshadows and lip glosses. We’re still in early stages right now and there is still so much to do but I just couldn’t hold this news in any longer.

As you can probably gather, each of my collections will be themed. The first collection urges you to embrace your inner old school geek! With shades like CGA, Forbidden Fruit, Morning Java and Tux, you’ll be adjusting those spectacles and fastening that pocket protector in no time.

Disclaimer: Pretty Serious Cosmetics accepts no liability for damages caused by hijinks ensuing from crazy college pranks. LAMBDA LAMBDA LAMDA!

While a few of my shades are still being reworked by my manufacturer, I do have a couple of them finalised. And I’m happy to give you a sneak peek, right now! Click the images for larger versions.

I’m delirously happy to unveil to you: BSOD (aka Blue Screen of Death)

Pretty Serious BSOD Pretty Serious BSOD

A big thank you to Emma for being my hand model. (My nails are in seriously bad shape right now dudes!)

I’ll be selling Pretty Serious through an online store and am also in the process of sorting out a US distributor so that we can get around that pesky problem of the cost of US shipping from Australia. But more on that later, when we’re ready to launch.

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook! I’ll continue to keep you guys updated. (Hint Hint: I might just have a few more things to show you on our facebook page later tonight!)

Lastly, I want to thank the following people for being super supportive as I turned this idea from a pipe dream into a reality. I couldn’t have done this without your help, support and encouragement. Emma, My sister Melissa, Scrangie, Jacie, Dave, Alicia & most importantly my boyfriend Ben – THANK YOU! I also need to give an extra special thank you to my artist Leigh Young, who did an absolutely amazing job on my pinup girl artwork.

I hope you girls are ready to get your pretty on, because shit is about to get SERIOUS. 😀

    Are they going to be vegan(no guanine, carmine, pearl, or silk)? Because that teaser swatch looks awesome, and I want to be able to buy these.

    • Kaz

      I will have to confirm on the nail polishes with my manufacturer, and I’ll do my best on the eyeshadows and glosses. I understand that this is a concern for some of my potential customers. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    • Kaz

      Haha you haven’t even seen them yet! But thanks! 😀

      • http://twitter.com/jade_everything Jade Carver

        If they all have awesome names like BSOD and Morning Java I think my boyfriend will be more understanding of my unrestrained purchasing 😛

        • Kaz

          Haha then my plan is a SUCCESS! 😀

  • emmablossom

    Damn. I’m gonna have to work on my cleanup skillz 

    • Kaz

      Hush yo mouf woman, your nails and painting skills are PERFECT.

  • Lucy

    I’m absolutely thrilled for you! I knew you’d do something important soon.  You’ve really done it! I can’t wait to see everything you’ve come up with.  I pray you get a distributor soon.  I know I want your polishes.  I hope you have plenty of duochromes! Way to go!!!

    • Kaz

      Aww thank you Lucy!! I’m working on that distribution! And I can assure you there will definitely be duochromes down the track!

  • Kaz

  • Kaz

    I know what you mean, I’m jealous of the stuff I can’t get here too! Hopefully Pretty Serious will be a worldwide affair. Thanks!

  • Kaz

    You did! I just hadn’t approved it yet. This thing is screwy – some comments go up right away yet others need approval. Weird. But thank you for the double dose of love!

  • Kaz

    Thanks Lynn! <3

  • Kaz

    Thank you! All this support is amazing!

  • Marli

    Congrats Kaz!!! The sneaky peek of the green polish is divine. I know this is a pain of a question but will there be full ingredients lists on the website? I have an allergy which is super annoying and some companies make it really difficult to find out ingredients.

    • Kaz

      Marli, all ingredients will be listed on both the site and the outer box. I understand working with allergies and I’ll do my best to make sure they are on the safe side for everyone.

  • http://blog.honestbabes.com/ Dia

    I am so thrilled- this is good news for the polish world AND for you! BSOD is amazeballs and I can’t wait to see what else your amazing brain has come up with! Mmm, brains… 😀 Please keep us posted every step of the way, whether it’s here, on Twitter or on the Pretty Serious Facebook page! <3

  • Emz O

    This is freakin’ AWESOME, Kaz!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!! I can’t wait to buy them all!!!! Do you have any idea what kind of price range they will be?

    • Kaz

      We’re still working out costing, but I can assure you that even though they might be as gorgeous as Illamasqua, they’ll only be a fraction of the price 😉

  • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

    CONGRATS! I’m so excited 😀

    • Kaz

      Thank you! 😀
