Moonstone Nail Polish/Shades of Phoenix 'Weird & Wonderful Flavours Collection' Swatches & Giveaway!!

Hi ladies!
For the past few months, Moonstone Nail Polish (my own indie brand) and Shades of Phoenix (glitterbaby of Teneil) have been working on a very special project. Teneil approached me with the idea of a Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans inspired collection and, being the massive Harry Potter and Shades of Phoenix fan that I am, of course I said yes!

So, after many brainstorming sessions, we came up with the idea that each shade will have two names. It's based around the concept of Bertie Bott's and how you never know what flavour you're gonna get! We have created 3 shades each which all have a 'good' and a 'bad/weird' flavour/name. Half of the bottles of each shade will be given the 'wonderful' flavour/name and the other half, the 'weird'! You won't know which one you're gonna get until you get your open your parcel!

The collection  will be released Monday the 9th of June at 7pm! To celebrate the release, we're having an INTERNATIONAL giveaway!! The prize is the complete 'Weird & Wonderful Flavours Collection' as well as 20% off vouchers from each store. Entries close Monday the 9th of June at 6pm.

and now for my swatches!! All photos are taken outside in indirect sunlight unless stated otherwise in the caption.

A deep, rich red jelly with tiny gold and gold holo hex with gold flakies and a subtle gold/red shimmer. You can reach opacity with this one in two coats but a third coat will add more depth.
