Contrary Polish - Polish Pick Up - January 2018


Hiya guys! It's the big day we have all been waiting for and I have one last polish that you'll need to add to your cart. I'm talking about Polish Pickup of course and here's the part where your wallet cringes. But dying wallets aside, I'm very excited with all the gorgeous shades for this months theme of Crystals & Gemstones. I feel like I say this each and every month, but I am always blown away by the creativity. Now for today I'm sharing swatches for Contrary Polish January contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. Warning... it's a stunner that you are most definitely going to need. So without further ado, let's get to the swatches!


Any Way You Slice It by Contrary Polish will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop Friday, January 5th at 11AM EST through January 8th. This full-size 15mL shade will retail for $12 each.

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 January is Crystals & Gemstones. This month Carrie found her inspiration from the stained glass window from the Grossm√ľnster church in Zurich. The artist Sigmar Polke created this and six other windows using thinly sliced agate

Any Way You Slice It can be described as grey polish with multichrome shimmer/flakes (shifting from pink to orange to green) and scattered holographic sparkle. I feel like Carrie is quickly becoming like the queen of grey polishes. It's always been one of my favorite hues and oh so tragically unrated. Now this one in particular one is gorgeous and the perfect addition to my collection. The flakes and shimmer add such a nice amount of depth and complexity to the finish. Needless to say it's a must-have!

The formula has a sheer application that builds-up well for full coverage. It has a well balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. There are plenty of flakies per brush stroke that don't overwhelm the base. The finish dries down to a minimal gritty finish and smooths out after topcoat. Shown in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
