Press Sample I know I keep saying it, but this time I mean it. Posts are going to start coming in fairly rapid succession.

Contrary Polish New York Polish Con Limited Editions

Press Sample Moving on with more gorgeous Polish Con shades, we have the Contrary Polish New York Polish Con Limited Editions to take a look at tonight! For Polish Con, Contrary Polish’s three shades were inspired by and named after phrases from The New Colossus, the poem written for and mounted on the base of the Statue of Liberty.

From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the…
