Feenix Polish: Falling For You & Feenix Rising

Today I've got two stunning polishes from Suzette, the genius behind Feenix Polish.  I'll just get right to it!

Falling For You is described as "a clear base to which we have lightly added two shimmering pigments in tawny colors.  To that, we have stirred in a mixture of ten different glitters, some of them matte.  The result is a riot of fall colors reminiscent of an October walk in the woods."


My bottle doesn't appear to have any shimmer in the base like the pictures in the listing do, but instead has a scattering of brown micro-glitters throughout; I think I like it better this way though.  The most prominent colours of glitter are red and gold (Gryffindor, anyone?)  I layered one coat of Falling For You over Sheswai Badass, and I must admit that I was very tempted to give each of these two polishes a separate post and call this one "Falling For You, Badass". 


This glitter is very dense, and you can get full coverage in 3 coats.  The base is pretty thick and required dabbing to get even coverage, but the glitter was very well-suspended.  Topped with one coat of Seche Vite for the pictures, though I'd recommend another if you want a perfectly smooth finish.   This polish attracted a lot of attention because it was SO glittery, but the fall colours were very pretty and not obnoxiously glittery at all!  


Feenix Rising is described as "an incredibly beautiful topcoat...which has proven incredibly difficult to photograph.  It is a clear base with four neutral holographic small glitters."  I found the glitters to not be quite holographic, but more iridescent, however the comment on being impossible to photograph was spot-on! 

This polish is SO stunning; my mom said that they looked like these, and she's right!  I tried to take photos of this under my normal lighting conditions, but I was ending up with photos like the first one below, which IN NO WAY looks like the polish does in real life.  Application was the same as for Falling For You, and I used one coat of Seche Vite for the pictures. 


This one is just so reflective, so I went to a shaded area of the house to capture the true depth and beauty of this polish.  Ta-da! 


Now just imagine all of the colours constantly changing (similar to a blue-green-gold colour-shifting flakie polish) and reflecting light, and it looks like mermaid scales on your nails!  I said that I got a lot of compliments on the last one, but this definitely one-upped the fall glitter! 

I tried it over so many different greens, blues, and purples, and they all looked amazing.  I finally decided to layer it over Orly Decoded, to let all of the different colours of the glitter stand out.  Looking at the finished look, you'd never guess I put it over a dark grey even thought the base of the polish was clear! 


So there you have it, two stunning polishes from Feenix Polish!  You can purchase Feenix Polish on Etsy here, and keep in the loop on Facebook here.  I'm absolutely in love with all of the polishes in the shop, I just might have to pick up a couple more... or a lot more.  

Which of these polishes is your favourite?  Are you planning on picking up any of these or her other stunning creations? :)

  1. These are so beautiful, Emma! I think I agree, Falling For You looks so lovely with the microglitter (such great colours!), and the black opal flash of Feenix Rising is incredible. They're both just stunning!
