Carrie sent me the loveliest e-mail some months after Mark passed away, expressing her empathy and condolences that touched me tremendously. Carrie offered me to send three of her new polishes for Fall just as a gift and a little cheer-up - how sweet is THIS? I could even list my preferred colors. You cannot imagine how spoilt I felt!! Now the package took its own sweet time to arrive at my door - more than two months!!!! What can I say, Carrie picked EXACTLY my favorite colors and I am super exited to show them this week. First up my favorite, Contrary Polish River Market. A deep dark purple jelly filled with red glimmer-shimmer!!!
the above pictures are taken indoors in daylight, the below photos outdoors in the sun
and the last photo is taken outdoors in the shade
On another Blog - I believe it was The Polishaholic - I read that if we like Crows Toes Tiki Torch, we probably like River Market too - well this is certainly true for myself and since I have that one too, I thought I show them side by side:
Ring: one coat of Crows Toes Tiki Torch over my River Market mani
Middle: four coats of Crows Toes Tiki Torch
Index: three coats of Contrary Polish River Market
I couldn't resist adding this blurry shot:
..and here in the sun
Now what do you think? Both of them awesomely gorgeous, right?
Final thoughts: Contrary Polish River Market is knocking me out of my socks!!! Seriously, those red glowing sparks are breathtaking IRL and unfortunately I could not bring them as much to play in my photos as I wished but it was slightly overcast and the sun most of the time hid behind a veil of thin clouds.
Contrary Polish are available with Llarowe and MeiMei Signatures.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
