Contrary Polish Ain't That a Beach Trio

Contrary Polish is releasing a new trio called "Ain't That a Beach" and it is made up of three polishes: Sand, Sky, and Surf! These polishes are sure to conjure up memories of relaxing afternoons at the beach.

Each polish is shown first in indirect light and second in direct light.

Sand is a dirty tan with gold shimmer and brown microglitter. I think this gorgeous neutral is my favorite in the trio! It truly does look like wet sand. I need to do some beach nail art on top of this one... maybe some shells, a footprint or two... The formula was excellent and needed two coats for the swatch below.

Sky is a lovely deep sky blue with gold shimmer. This is a great great summer shade! Two coats.

Surf is a dark green-leaning blue with green-teal shimmer. It's kind of deep and moody without being overbearing. The green shimmer is the perfect accent to the base color. Two coats.

I know I say this every time I review Contrary Polish products, but the formula is fantastic as usual. Creamy and buttery, it applies smoothly to the nail without issues.

Are these polishes transporting you to a beach vacation? My favorite is Sand -- Carrie nailed the inspiration!

The Ain't That a Beach trio is scheduled to be released this afternoon at 1:00pm MST on Llarowe (ships internationally!). The polishes will retail for $11 each. Carrie also sells minis of her polishes on the Contrary Polish blog, though I'm not sure if or when this particular trio will be available for purchase.

  10. Blown away! Contrary polish is better than most main stream polishes (in my opinion) in that she really creates unusual, but beautiful and wearable polishes! Gorgeous swatches as always! I too must have sand, that is right up my polish alley :)
