Contrary Polish - Colour Context Collection

I've never hidden the fact that I love Contrary Polish. I've been nothing but impressed with every polish from the Contrary range and I love their smooth intense shimmers.  Today I have the three polishes from the recent Colour Context Collection.

All my photos are taken in full sun, because I love how that intensifies the shimmer.  In the shade and indoors, these colours do appear darker.

Blood Orange - An orange leaning red base with gold shimmer.  Perfect two coat coverage, topped with Seche Vite.

Greenhouse - A blue jelly base with gold shimmer. The jelly/shimmer combination makes the polish look green.  Completely mesmerizing. I did three coats for an intense colour, topped with Seche Vite.

Indigo Rose - A blue base with a pinky red shimmer. The combo of the blue base and red shimmer gives an overall purple finish to the polish.  Another stunner. I again did three coats to ensure a nice deep colour, topped with Seche Vite.

While I love wearing Contrary Polishes on their own, I find that I wear them most as undies for glitters. On so many occasions I reach for a Contrary as the perfect base colour.

Contrary Polish recently celebrated it's one year anniversary (and released a celebratory polish for the occasion). I can't believe it's only been a year! Happy Anniversary to Carrie and her lovely brand, which is I'm sure will continue to be one of the favourite indie brands.
Contrary Polishes are available from Llarowe in the USA and from Shoppe-Eclecticco in Singapore. Minis are also available directly from Carrie on the Contrary Polish blog.  

Polishes provided for review.
