Guest Post: McPolish with Pretty Serious Party by the Pool

Hello there!

My name is Amy McG…but most people know me as McPolish. I am new to the nail blogging scene but have been microblogging on Instagram for over a year now. My favorite type of polish is a jelly. And I especially love jelly polish with bits of glitter and flakies to float around and mesmerize you!

Today, I am sharing with you all a few swatches of a beautiful polish from Pretty Serious Cosmetics ( called “Party by the Pool”. This is a teal/blue jelly polish with some amazing blue and green microflecks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.

Check out this macro! Just look at how glowy those microflecks look. I want to swim in it.

Anytime you want to change the look of your manicure or just give more depth…just add a matte top coat. I especially like to mattify jelly polishes. The matte top coat really lets the glitter and flakies pop. If haven’t tried this yet, you should! Here is the same manicure of “Party by the Pool” with a matte top coat.

And we can’t forget about the macro shot!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed these swatches. You can order Pretty Serious polishes from their main site and also right here at Harlow and Co. If you would like to see more swatches and nail art from me, please head over to my blog or Instagram account for more polish hijinks!
