Serum No. 5 - Debut Collection

Today I have a picture-heavy post for you.  Serum No. 5 is a new brand that will be available tomorrow July 24th at 5pm PDT.  What I like about this brand is that every month, the owner will make donation to the Make A Wish Foundation in an amount equal to 20% of the proceeds of all lacquers sold.  My favorites from the collection are Pretty in Pastel and Girl's Gotta Eat (shown last), both gorgeous and unique.  The glitter in Pretty in Pastel is something that I had never seen before (and I have seen my share of glitters!), the gold shimmer in Girl's Gotta Eat is just amazing, very subtle and classy.  The formula in Peachy Keen and Mint To Be were a little bit hard to work with, but the colors are beautiful.  Day Glow (only sold in mini bottles) is a glow in the dark nail polish that looks great during the day too.  I liked the look of White Paradox (filled with white square, hex, bar, and diamond glitter with microshimmer in a clear base) and Black Paradox (filled with black square, hex, bar, and diamond glitter with microshimmer in a clear base), they are both one-coater layering glitters; and Thanks for the Memories is a mix of the two.  The later was a sample and is currently not for sale, but it can be achieved by combining Black Paradox and White Paradox together. I especially like the small glitter in these three, it is iridescent blue in some lights, and orange or yellow in others.  Finally, Shrinking Violet was very easy to apply, and I loved the purple glitter in it, this one is shown first.  Click here to like Serum No. 5 on Facebook.
