If you're not familiar with Contrary Polish, one thing you should probably know is that it's THE indie brand when it comes to shimmers!I've already reviewed a couple of their polishes last month and today I have the Holiday Collection to share with you.
Frozen is a soft white scattered with blue but also green and pink shimmers. It's very delicate and flattering on the nails and I loved wearing it. Formula was surprisingly nice and pigmented. This is two coats plus topcoat.
Adorned is a gold topper with different sizes of gold shimmer shreds in a clear base. A very nice alternative to the real gold topcoats released this year if you're looking for a more subtle look. I applied one thin coat over Contrary Polish Candle Light here.
Bauble is a muted red with red and silver shimmer. I love red polish and this one's no exception! Formula was great and it applied like a dream in two easy coats.
Mystery is a dark taupe with a strong purple hue and a warm brown and gold shimmer. It's just so beautiful! Formula was fanastic and required 2 coats for full opacity.
Candle Light is a very dark green based grey with gold, copper and green shimmers. The shimmer is very subtle in real life but it adds a very nice glow. Once again, flawless formula and 2 coats plus topcoat in these swatches.
Spruce is a dark green with green and gold shimmer particles. Equally as beautiful as the other Contrary Polish shimmers I've tried! Application was, as expected, easy as a breeze with and the polish perfect in 2 coats.
If I could own each and every Contrary Polish, I would! I might have a soft spot for shimmers but still, that probably says a lot about how much I love them ^_^
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.
