Contrary Polish Cotton Candy Mattes Collection & Sueded Summer Collection

Press Sample Initially I was going to split this post up into two posts, but since release is tomorrow, I am putting all 10 polishes in one glorious post. Tonight I have the Contrary Polish Cotton Candy Mattes Collection & Sueded Summer Collection! All 10  of these shades have a shimmery matte finish (or suede like) and I will show them both matte as well as glossy. I personally love them matte but I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The top coat down make the shimmer pop though! Let’s jump right in, I’ll split them by collections. Contrary Polish Cotton Candy Mattes The Contrary Polish Cotton Candy Mattes are for Spring and they have a nice Spring vibe to them! Lighter, vibrant colors!

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. Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. 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…

Contrary Polish Femmes Au Puits

Press Sample I have another shade for the April Polish Pickup to share with you! This time we’ll be looking at Contrary Polish Femmes Au Puits. In case you missed any of my previous posts about the Polish Pickup, here is a recap explaining the group. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception of it. Now, I love polish boxes, however, some purchasers shared their frustration in only wanting 1 or 2 polishes from a box and needing to unload the polishes in the box they didn’t want. So essentially they were paying $40 and up for 1 or 2 polishes and hoping they could sell the polishes they weren’t interested in.…

Luckily things are working themselves out, so I had some time to squeeze this in before the preorder ended!

Contrary Polish These Streets Will Make You Feel Brand New

Press Sample Continuing on with week 9 of the Road To Polish Con series, next up I have Contrary Polish These Streets Will Make You Feel Brand New! This is an absolutely stunning shade and I kinda want Contrary Polish to make a wider range of base colors with these effects in them Take a look and you’ll see what I mean Contrary Polish These Streets Will Make You Feel Brand New Contrary Polish These Streets Will Make You Feel Brand New is a very dark grey with holo flakes and a strong flash of copper. The base looks almost black, but it’s a super deep grey. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos, but you could easily use 2 medium coats for the same opacity. And Carrie, I would love to see this in other deep shades like purple, burgundy, blue and maybe a…
