Going Down Under: Shades Of Phoenix

I can't believe it's taken me so long to do a post about this new brand!

The lady behind the brand is Teneil, who is not only gorgeous, but also mega talented; and although
 a relative newbie to blogging and making nail polish, has had incredible success!!!
You can find her on Instagram or check out her amazing blog.
Contrary to most of my posts, this time I will start with my favourite of the bunch - Zeus.
I have worn it at least 5 times now and it is ah-mazing over any pastel!
Natural Light
A combination of white hex glitter with specks of lavender and iridescent micro glitter.
Such a delicate combination))

Next up is Hades - a dark navy jelly base with teal and silver square glitter
as well as specks of grey micro glitter.
Easily could be worn on it's own, I chose to layer over Rimmel Night Flight.

Lastly, I have Aphrodite. I couldn't come up with a better description than the one written by the creator:
"With a base of Blue & Red and a splash of pearl white this polish is passionate and rich with violet, bright pinks, garnet and silver glitter throughout" - how awesome is that?!
Natural Light
For the swatches I layered 2 coats of Aphrodite over Rimmel Icon Style.

Overall, I am super impressed with these polishes!
From the concept behind the collection to the formula - Teneil can do no wrong!
I'm looking forward to seeing more from her in the future - there are some delightful new shades in the works (ssssshhh .... we have to keep it a secret for now)

To get your hands on these beauties (or get them on your hands) go to the etsy store.
For all you ladies residing outside of  Australia, Shades of Phoenix polishes will be included in my giveaway, also you can ask your Aussie swap buddies to send you some!

Thanks for stopping by!
