Of course, I'm here to enable you so more. For today I'm sharing swatches for Contrary Polish contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. Without further ado, let's get to the swatches!

If you're not familiar with the concept, the Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. As I mentioned before, the theme that was voted for October was Monsters & Mythical Creatures! This month Carrie was inspired by the mysterious Gargoyles, down to their stone finish.

Gargoyle Please can be described as a cool grey suede matte polish filled with light gold shimmer/micro-flakes and holo sparkle. I always feel like there isn't enough grey polishes, one of the most snubbed colors (aside from yellow) ever. But I personally love the shade especially when it's so well done and complex like this polish. The shimmer in this finish is everything! It gives it such depth and just enough pop factor without taking away from the base.

The formula has a sheer application, but it builds-up easily for a full coverage finish. Consistency wise it leans on the thin side, but it's manageable and easy to work with. It dries down to a natural smooth matte finish. Shown here in three coats and no topcoat.

Because the shade is naturally a matte finish, I decided to whip out the glossy topcoat and see the difference. And let me just say... Wowza!! The gold shimmer simply comes to life with the difference in topcoat. There is nothing I love more than a matte finish that can change so dramatically, Carrie really has a great talent for doing shades like this.

Overall this is another winning home-run from Carrie at Contrary Polish! I really don't know how she does it month after month, I think she's one of the few makers that has participated every month. This shade is absolutely gorgeous and definitely a must-have in my book. Especially if you've been giving grey colors the side-eye, this is the one to turn you around guys!

To recap, Gargoyle Please by Contrary Polish will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop October 6th at 11AM EST through October 9th. This full-size 15mL shade will retail for $11 each.
