The world of indies is a paradise for glitter lovers but if you're into shimmers and always on the look out for original unexpected combinations, Contrary Polish is the brand to look into.
Today I have the Spring collection to share with you : 6 beautiful and soft shades with lovely sparkles!
Somebody Loved is a delicate nude pink-lavender with a gold and multicolored shimmer. The shimmer is subtle but still adds a really nice glow to the beautiful base color. 2 coats plus topcoat here.
Play Me is a dusty purple with a strong green sparkling shimmer. It's a little warmer than my pictures show but this is the closest I could get, it's really gorgeous though! 2 coats plus topcoat here.
Feels Like Home is a pinkish taupe with pink shimmer / microglitter. I really love this shade, it's soft and delicate but still dark and edgy : perfection! This is 2 coats plus topcoat.
Ain’t no Sunshine is a greyed out blue with a subtle shimmer and small silver flecks. It reminds me a little bit of Illamasqua Raindrops minus the opacity problems. I received this bottle before Carrie had a chance to reformulate it so the shimmer ratio in the bottle you will receive should be higher. This is 2 coats plus topcoat.
Better Together is the darkest polish of the collection and amazing grey with a strong blue hue and a turquoise sparkling shimmer. I used 2 coats plus topcoat here.
The Way I Am is a muted green, almost military with a mix fuschia shimmer / microglitter. Totally unexpected but really beautiful, it's a nice twist on the usual military greens. 2 coats plus topcoat here also.
Formula on this collection was really nice and consistent : rather sheer but even on the first coat, they all looked perfectly opaque and applied effortlessly on the second.
I really have a soft spot for Contrary Polish and I can only recommend them!
Contrary Polish can be purchased from llarowe.com and retails for $11 each (full size). A few shades are also available in mini size directly from Contrary Polish.
