Back in the spring of last year, I reviewed the Contrary Polish Love Lyrics collection. This spring, Carrie has released another set of six soft shades for all of your springtime polishing needs. While the shades in the last collection were named after the titles of some of her favorite love songs, these polishes are named for lyrics in more favorite love songs!
Contrary Polish's Darling Wildflower is exclusive to May's A Box, Indied. This deep purple jelly is accented with red and orange shimmer and flakes that look like glowing embers floating up from a fire. They are definitely most visible in direct lighting, as they catch the light beautifully. The formula was smooth and not too thick. As it is a jelly, the opacity started out on the sheerer side, but it built up nicely in three coats.
Grey is a favorite color of mine. I especially love pairing it with bright colors... The grey really grounds bright shades and adds a great element of chic-ness. I was really excited to see a gorgeous stormy grey in the Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection, and had to pair it with a sweet peach shade from the same collection.
Springtime is my favorite season. The weather is perfection, the smell of orange blossoms is everywhere, and the nail polish palettes are bright and pretty. China Glaze's new City Flourish collection celebrates the feel of spring in an urban environment, and so far, I've been loving the shades! My starburst nail art uses two of them.
Different Dimension's I Only Have Ice For You is a holographic topcoat with metallic silver flakes. Though it is from the Happy Holly Days collection, it is still available for purchase (yay!). I don't often reach for holographic topcoats, but I found this one to be pretty enticing. The flakes are really pretty.
I layered one coat of this topper over Nicole by OPI This Blue Is So You. Shown first in direct light and second in indirect light (after the jump).
