My other post today had a tiny bit of complaining about running out of ideas to do, and how I too often resort to indie polishes. While what I'm about to show you is resoundingly this, it's so different that I have no problems posting it on the same day. Let's take a look at Pretty & Polished Phoenix.
The hardest part about this polish is what to pair it with. The polish itself is a matte yellow glitter with a orange tinted base and shiny red glitter. I wasn't entirely sure of what this would come out like so I chose the twin to base of my last post - Revlon Gold Coin. Sitting the bottles together, they looked like they went so off I went. Gold Coin is a nice, subdued gold, nothing too sparkly or outlandish. Then, two coats of Phoenix. I haven't paired a foil base with a matte glitter between and let me tell you, the outcome is very different. We're used to a flat base and sparkly glitter so the reverse is quite interesting.
The Verdict: More matte glitter please! You know, in general. Things that are different are good!
