Contrary Polish Spring 2014 Love Lyrics Redux Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Happy April Fools Day, hopefully you aren't getting tricked too much today. I'm sure I will, I'm one of those gullible people that will believe anything! Today I have the Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux Collection to share with you! Last year Carrie did a Love Lyrics Collection (you can see it here) that was based off the names of some of Carrie's favorite love-themed songs. This years Love Lyrics Redux Collection is based off lyrics in some of Carrie's favorite love-themed songs! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Formula wise these were consistent across all 6. They are all jelly based so they start off a little sheer but build to full opacity easily in 3 coats, which is what I used for all my swatches. The formula was a little thick but it was easy to manage and apply.

Become Yours is a pink/peach jelly with a subtle aqua blue shimmer.

Funny Yellow Shoes is a pale dusty yellow jelly with pink shimmer and microglitter.

Just A Dream is a light grey jelly with silver shimmer and purple micro flakes of glitter.

Make-Believe Reality is a pale jade jelly with fuchsia and blue shimmer.

Strange Changes is a dusty grey-green jelly with copper shimmer and microglitter.

The Gift You Gave is a dusty purple jelly with sapphire blue shimmer and microglitter. 

Overall I really love this collection, I think the palette of shades is really pretty together and I like the jelly texture of them. My picks are Strange Changes and Funny Yellow Shoes!
Contrary Polish is available at http://www.contrarypolish.com/ and several etailers like Llarowe, Femme Fatale, Mei Mei's Signatures, Hypnotic Polish, Norway Nails and Rainbow Connection

    I'm loving Strange Changes and Make Believe Reality!

  2. I normally love Contrary Polish, but this collection isn't grabbing me. Some of them are a bit too sheer for me and I just think they are similar to other polishes from this brand. I'd really love if Carrie did something like the Color Context collection from last year. Those were amazing!

    Strange Changes is gorgeous!

  4. Great shades of wearable light colors!

  5. I really like the shimmers in these!

  6. Strange changes is definitely my favorite of these. I'll get my first Contrary polish in the mail any day now, so I'm excited!!

  7. I loved the first collection and I love this one too!
