Dionysus from Shades of Phoenix

Hello.. Shades of Phoenix are releasing new pretty polish in their etsy store.

I was privileged to get a bottle of Dionysus back in January at the AN Melb meet-up.

The pics following are with one coat of ulta3- orchid as undies; however the new release has a slightly richer and darker base colour of purple AND is still with an array of matte glitters.
Yes this polish has bar glitter, I'm not afraid of it..

Without topcoat:

Super duper shine- added 2 coats Seche Vite:

(sun and glare)

The 'Olympus' collection of nail polish from Shades of Phoenix is based on Greek mythology. Wikipedia tells me that Dionysus is the god of wine, merrymaking, theatre and ecstasy.
Well, wine and merrymaking, just what I need during an extra long hot summer.. I like it.. and will show it using nail stamping..
1st and 3rd nails with matte, 2nd and 4th Seche Vite:

I applied a thin coat of fantasy fire over most nails,
then sponged the tips with the matte glitter in Dionysus:
Base polish: ulta3- orchid, Shades of Phoenix- Dionysus
Stamping polish: Barry M- gold foil
Image plate: CH36
seche vite
essie- matte about you
max factor- fantasy fire

Are you buying the new release? Have you already purchased other polish from Shades of Phoenix?
