First up is Eye of the Fire, a stunning deep red jelly base with red and purple microglitters. I wore 3 coats plus topcoat in these photos. In person, this polish has a lot more sparkle, the purple glitters get a bit lost in the photos, but trust me you can see them.

First up is Grey Lady, a light grey base filled with iridescent shimmer and genuine silver flakes. Photos show 2 coats with top coat. I love interesting greys like this, perfect for when you need to have something more muted but still retains some interested without being overboard.

Next up is Enchanted Ceiling, a deep blurple jelly base with varying purple microshimmer and hex glitters with gold circle glitter. 3 coats for opacity. Super pretty colour! The addition of the gold circles really makes this polish a bit more unique, you generally see royal purples with gold but no many blurples. It works really well.

Shades of Phoenix - Fire and Ice Facebook exclusive!

Hey all!

My nails are starting to get around a bit, the saucy things they are haha. The latest brand to request my swatching services has been the lovely Teneil, the owner of Shades of Phoenix. Bit of cool back story, Teneil was one of the first ladies that I met and started talking to back when I started blogging, and I won her first ever giveaway, so we have known each other for a couple of years now :)

Today I am showing you the 2 new exclusive facebook group polishes. "A FB exclusive?" I hear you say, why yes! A lot of the Aussie Indie ladies have started up their own facebook groups for their brands to allow their fans to keep more up to date with what's going on, release dates, special offers and even group exclusive polishes! To get your hands on these polishes, you must be a member of the FB group. If you're interested in purchasing them, go to the group, apply to be a member and when approved you will be allowed to purchase the polish from the website. If you try to purchase the polish without being a group member, you order will be cancelled. Simple!

Now that the explanation is out of the way, lets get to the polishes!

First up we have the stunning Fire. A slightly sheer, but buildable red base full of micro shimmer, red, purple and orange holo glitter as well as a dash of black glitter. Photos here show 3 coats over a red base. Both these polishes are designed to be 'customisable' in that you have the ability to place the polish over different bases to completely change to look of the polish. I am now dying to try this over a purple base.

And here we have Ice, a clear base with silver microglitter, and a mixture of blue, purple and holo silver glitter. Photos show 2 dabbed coats over a blue creme. The combo options with this polish are endless.

As mentioned above, these polishes are only available to purchase after being accepted into the Shades of Phoenix FB group, once accepted they can be bought via their website.

To keep updated with all things Shades of Phoenix, be sure to like them on facebook, as well as their Instagram and be sure to join the group to get exclusive offers and polishes!

Dramatic Entrance is a super strong teal holo, photos show full coverage in 2 coats with top coat. I love EdM holos, they are some of the strongest flames around! Unf, love.

Annnnnd here we have a holo gradient done with Dramatic Entrance as well as Emily de Molly Chasing Rainbows, an amazing black holo, and my most used polish! It took 3 rounds of sponging to get the gradient effect, and while the flame looks subdued in the photos, in full sun you still got the complete crazy strong holo.

I show for your viewing pleasure, Setting Sun, an almost neon coral with a subtle holo and applies in a perfect 2 coats. This one was really pretty, it felt a little more pink to me but I think that's because I am so pale.

MckFresh Nail Attire Glowing Posies Colour Chart Collection

Lastly we have Glowing Posies, a delicate lilac creme, showing with 2 medium coats. Lilac cremes are always a winner with me, I love them. They are my type of 'girly pink' polish, I feel that my nails look delicate and feminine whenever I wear a colour like this. Instant fave!

A quick note, the first coat of all of these polishes does go on a bit sheer, but they build up to a perfect opacity with the second coat. If you are a fan of doing thinner coats, you will need 3 to get them opaque.

Well that's it! I hope you enjoyed this more delicate side of MckFresh, gotta say, super impressed with these and that's huge since I very rarely bother showing cremes, but these colours are just stunning!

The Colour Chart Collection are all on sale NOW from their website, and are available internationally, win! Be sure to follow MckFresh on Facebook to keep updated, and if you are a bit fanatical about their polish, be sure to join the new MckFreshies facebook group for sneak peeks and exclusive polishes as well as early release dates!
