2 comments

Hiya guys! Today I'm sharing swatches for another shade part of the Polish Pickup collaboration, say hello to Femmes au Puits from Contrary Polish. If you're not familiar with the Polish Pickup, let me give you a quick rundown. It's a huge build your own box collaboration with the makers creating shades around a theme. The theme is voted on by you (well if you're part of the Facebook group, hint hint) and the polishes are released for one week only.

The theme for the month of April is 'Famous Works of Art'. There are at least a dozen makers involved for the month of April, so be sure to head on over to the Facebook group Polish Pickup Pack for more details. Let's get right into the swatches!

Contrary Polish - Polish Pick Up

Femmes au Puits from Contrary Polish will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop April 7th through April 10th. This full-size shade will retail for $10 each.


The gorgeous shade takes inspiration from the  a equally beautiful painting Femmesits by Paul Signac (1892). Here's a quote from Carrie explaining the thought process behind her inspiration: 

"I’ve always been interested in pointillism, so I thought it would be fun to create a similar look in a polish, using micro-glitter as the 'points'. In particular, I focused on the colors that make up the purple skirt."

Femmes au Puits can be described as a deep lilac crelly filled with matte micro-glitter in shades of orange, gold, blue, red, pink and green.

The formula has a smooth application that leans on the sheer side. The consistency has a nice balance between thick and thin making it easy to work with for layering. This shade is simply jam-packed with glitters! It dries down very textured due to the glitters, but can smoothed down with a layer or two of topcoat. Shown here in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
