For those who don't know what I am talking about (Follow me through Facebook to know a lot more!) I am making an Indie Guide A-Z! This will be a huge project and a enormous pleasure to do! So .. what am I going to do? Everyday, I'm going to show you a different brand of Indie Nail Polishes (and some of their major stockists too!! )
* * *



Your Name:  Teneil
Brand Name:  Shades Of Phoenix
Where are you from?  Australia
When have you started? January 19th 2013 (Launch)

Is there a story behind the name of your brand? I have always loved the idea and concept of the mythical creature, the Phoenix and have applied alot of the motto’s regarding the great mythical bird in my life. Mainly the idea of rising from the ashes and rebirth. The obsession was so much that I even named my most prized procession, my cat, Phoenix.

How many polishes/collections have you created? I have one collection called ‘The Olympus Collection’ that I have 6 core polishes (with 8 new one’s in different phases of testing and trials) plus I launched with 4 limited edition polishes that 2 have sold out


Is there a special polish/collection? Why? My favourite polish of the whole range would have to be ‘Hades’ – its a black jelly with blue and silver glitter and looks different every time I wear it. I also love that I have tried to make polishes that can be worn with nail art as well and ‘Hades’ works well with so many things!

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? YES! My collection is sitting at around 400 strong, which is rather small compared to others but living in a country town I can’t get my hands on much of the good stuff so I think its not a bad effort


Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? Yes, my blog started in August last year as I’ve always seen myself as a nail artist, until I caught the glitter bug! I usually post 5 times a week but have been slack lately due to full time work, but things will soon be going back to normal and my blog will get the proper attention is deserves
Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I love being free to create. Creativity is everything to me. I also love making other happy and sharing the things I create with others.

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? I try my best but it isn’t uncommon for a random cat hair to make its way in to an order, especially with 2 curious cats who want to help!
