Contrary Polish - Shimmahs June Group Customs

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! The squares are back in town peeps! Pelvic thrusts all around the mani caves, haha. I'm so glad my nails have finally grown out enough to be squares. Not going to lie, it's been a rough few weeks getting used to the round shape. I almost thought I'd never be able to go back to squares. Like seriously, it's been a recurring nightmare for the last month. Thankfully I got some nail mail just in time to celebrate.

Today I'm sharing swatches for the customs created by Contrary Polish for the Shimmahs Group on Facebook. I ended up purchasing these before my pups got sick and they ended up coming in the mail at the perfect time. After everything I have been through the last two weeks I feel like I need a major pick me up and these did the trick. Let's see the shimmer magic and get to the swatches!

Duchess can be described as a aqua with rosy pink shimmer and a touch of scattered holo sparkle. The light pink shimmer shifts into an orange copper tone at certain angles. Out of the two, this is the one that definitely caught my eye. Is that really surprising though? I mean I am a huge blue shade lover through and through, haha. The shimmer is absolutely stunning though and it's so easy to fall in love with it. Photos really don't do any justice to all the shifts.

The formula has a sheer application, but builds-up really well for full even coverage. Consistency leans very minimally on the thick side and doesn't interfere with the smooth layering. It dries to a gorgeous high-shine finish on its own. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Hypnotic Bouquet can be described as a soft lavender with blue-green shimmer. The blue-green shimmer shifts into a slight pink at an angle. Although I am biased towards the gorgeous blue shade, this one is definitely not to be looked past. The shimmer is incredible, it's actually slightly more visible than in the other polish.

The formula has a really good opacity with a easy butter-like application. The consistency feels very balanced, not too thick or too thin. It dries down to a beautiful high-shine and smooth finish. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall I am so happy I caught these on my news-feed on Facebook and didn't miss out. They are absolutely gorgeous and perfect shades for any time of year. You can actually see how these look matted in the Shimmah group and *spoiler alert* they are drool-worthy! Carrie really does an amazing job at creating very versatile shades. Definite must-have guys!
