Pretty Serious Absence / Presence Swatches & Review

Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans for the weekend? I'm supposed to go visit my Grandma but not so sure that's gonna have because I'm a little under the weather :( Today I have another 2 cremes from Pretty Serious to share with you. These are their own little duo called Absence/Presence and they are a really nicely formulated black and white creme.

Absence is a pure black creme. The formula was fantastic, it was a great consistency and had perfect opacity. I used 1 coat for the photos below.

Presence is a bright white creme. The formula was really nice, it was a good consistency and applied easier than a lot of other whites I've tried. I've heard from a ton of people that this is a 1 coat white but I had some slight streakiness in the first coat so I ended up needing a second coat to even it out.  I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Absence and Presence are both available at, they retail for $9.95 AUD each.


  1. Only black 'n white... But I love it :D

  2. Both look like great staple black and white polishes.

    I have both and really like them! I also found the white needed just a touch more than 1 coat but still a great white!

  4. Which black do you like the best regarding easy of application, looks, and lasting ability, and anything I haven't thought of? Pretty Serious Abscence or Cirque Memento Mori? They both have good reviews and I can't make up my mind.

  5. Honestly, both are good. I'd probably go with whichever is cheaper :)

  6. Thank you so much! My sister always says that when you can't make up your mind, go with price. I think I'll get the Memento Mori. Can't remember if it's cheaper but I love the name.
