Swatches & Review: Shades of Phoenix Vintage Horror Halloween Duo

Hi lovelies!

More Halloween fun today with a classic horror inspired duo from Shades of Phoenix! Last year Shades of Phoenix released the most stunning Halloween duo so my hopes were high this year - and my expectations have been well exceeded!

Wanna see?


1313



1313 is quite a deceptive little polish. It looks like a blackened purple in the bottle, but on the nail it lightens up and shows a gorgeous blue shimmer. At certain angles it leans magenta, and it is flecked with a reddish pink glow. 

The jelly base means a gorgeously smooth application, which builds to full opacity in three coats.  I wore three coats and top coat for my swatches. This one is a total stunner, and I'd say it's a must have for a purple lover!



UNDERWATER STALKER



Underwater Stalker is my total dream polish! Squishy green jelly with a beautiful subtle mix of holo glitters - the silver squares and coppery/orange micro glitter really make this one for me. In the bottle this looks like a slightly cloudy green that leans teal, but on the nail it is a stunning crisp emerald shade that makes me weak at the knees.

I've long been a fan of these types of jellies from Shades of Phoenix so this one really excited me. It builds to a nice opacity in 3 coats - you may experience a hint of VNL but I only noticed it in the photos, not in real life. The glitters spread well and are distributed nice and evenly. Because it's a juicy jelly a single coat of top coat is enough for a nice smooth finish.



The Vintage Horror Duo is available now for a limited time at Shades of Phoenix for just $18.50 - don't miss out!
