It's been a minute since I posted some Contrary Polish shades. Today I've got swatches of the On the Rocks Collection from Winter 2013. These moody shades are inspired by rocks and minerals. Though the palette was designed for winter, gorgeous shimmers are always en vogue, don't you think? Almandine is a brown-garnet shade with heavy gold shimmer. Three coats.
Dioptase is a green leaning teal with a gold shimmer. Three coats.
Fluorite is a deep blue purple with green and pink shimmer. I had trouble capturing the shimmer accurately in this shade. Three coats.
Graphite is a deep muddy grey with gold, silver, and pink shimmer plus dark grey micro flakes. The micro flakes are amazing, as is this shade of grey. Three coats.
Obsidian is a black jelly with green to blue shifting shimmer. A lovely twist on a plain black manicure. Three coats.
Tigerseye is a warm brown with heavy gold shimmer. I am totally obsessed with this one. I literally gasped out loud when I put it on my nails. Three coats.
As usual, the formula is without fault. They all glide on smoothly and evenly. Tigerseye, Graphite, and Fluorite are my picks, but you won't go wrong choosing any of these.
