A few days ago, I received my very first Contrary Polishes ever and I must admit that the minute I looked at those pretty bottles, I was in love.
Today I have 3 of them to share with you, all from recent collections : Bonfire, Santorini and Anna Maria.
Bonfire is a deep orange-red packed with different sizes of gold and red shimmer. I absolutely love this kind of red, the base is rich and the shimmer complex and not lost on the nails. Formula was also fantastic, even and pigmented, almost a one coater. I used 2 coats plus topcoat for full opacity.
Santorini is a bright royal blue with a blue and silver shimmer running through. The base/shimmer combination isn't the most original but it's amazing nonetheless. Formula was also really good, a bit less opaque than Bonfire but still perfectly opaque in 2 coats.
Anna Maria is the most original of the three : muted grey teal with different sizes of gold, green and copper shimmer, amazing! Formula was similar to Santorini, even and opaque in 2 coats.
For the first experience with Contrary Polish, I am really impressed! The shimmers are gorgeous and the formula perfect. If you've never tried indie brands because you're not into glitters, these are for you!
Contrary Polish can be purchased from llarowe.com and retail for $11 each (full size). A few shades are also available in mini size directly from Contrary Polish.
