Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux Collection Swatches and Review
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!
Become Yours is a soft peach jelly with aqua shimmer.
Funny Yellow Shoes is pale yellow jelly with soft pink shimmer/microglitter.
Just a Dream is a grey jelly with silver shimmer and purple microflakes.
Make-Believe Reality is an aqua jelly with fuchsia and blue shimmer.
Strange Changes is a grey-green jelly with copper shimmer/microglitter.
The Gift You Gave is a purple jelly with sapphire blue shimmer/microglitter.
Each swatch you see is three coats of the polish. I've shown it first in direct light and second in indirect light. I found the formula on all of these to be pretty similar. On me, three coats left a tiny bit of visible nail line (particularly on my ring finger, which has more free edge). I'm sure four would have covered it entirely, but I was happy with the opacity that three coats achieved.
The formula of these shades was good, maybe a bit on the thicker side, but they applied smoothly. Funny Yellow Shoes and Become Yours had the best formulas of the two for me. As far as colors go, my favorites are Just a Dream and Strange Changes. They are all really beautiful though. Don't they look lovely as a set?
Contrary Polish is available from these stockists. Carrie also sells minis - get the details on contrarypolish.com. You can also keep up with Contrary on Facebook & Twitter.
