Shades of Phoenix Pretty Poisons Collection.



Hi there everyone! Today I have a new collection to share with you from the lovely Shades of Phoenix. This new collection is a little different from others that have been released. In the past Shades of Phoenix has been known for their pretty glitter bombs and jelly/glitter mixes, but this collection is a lovely combo of micro glitters with cremes and jellies.


The collection is called The Pretty Poisons Collection. There are six polishes in the collection, All the polishes are named after plants/potions that are deemed poisonous to people. 
Lets have a look shall we...........


Foxglove- Is a pink creme with several different darker pink micro glitters through out. The formula was great and I only used 2 coats for full opacity. The colour has a slight purple hue to the colour which makes this colour lovely.

Belladonna- Is a beautiful purple almost metallic polish with tiny holographic micro glitters and a sprinkling of square holographic glitters. The polish only took 2 coats for full opacity. I think this one was my second favourite in the collection. I'm a sucker for purple at the best of times but I really liked the opacity of this polish and the finished effect on the nail. Plus was super sparkly and i'm such a magpie!

Hemlock- Is a green crelly polish with gold holographic micro glitters throughout. I used 3 coats to get full opacity. I did find this polish pulled a little when I popped on the second coat, but if you leave the polish to dry a little before painting the second coat there will not be any issue. I'm just impatient and it was cold when I swatched. The colour is really lovely and in the sun the micro glitters really catch the sun.

Mandrake- Is a brown crelly with a slight red hue to it. The polish also has a multitude of different coloured micro glitters I used 2 coats to get full opacity. I did find this polish was a little rough so I used a top coat of seche vite to smooth it out.

Monkshood- Is a cornflour blue creme with blue and yellow micro glitters and some slightly dark blue little squares. The polish took 2 coats for opacity. I used a top coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the finish. This is such a beautiful colour and is stunning IRL.

Wormwood- Is a beautiful orang/red polish with a golden shimmer and red micro glitter. Out of all the polishes, this was my favourite from the collection which I surprised myself as i'm not usually a red person but I loved this one. In the sun is sparkled so very much! I used 2 coats and a seche vite top coat.
