Contrary Polish Fall 2014 Book Nerd Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a new Contrary Polish collection to share with you! This collection is inspired by books and is called the Book Nerd Collection! This collection features 5 gorgeous shimmers and the first holo from Contrary Polish! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

A Bit Of Mystery is a smoky grey/purple/taupe with orangey pink shimmer. The formula was good, it was sheer at first but easily buildable and opaque in 3 coats.

Humor Me is a blurple base with bright blue shimmer. This is a touch more vibrant and purple leaning in person, its one of those impossible to photograph colors! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply. It starts out sheer but builds to full opacity in 3 coats.

Memoir Lane is a dark maroon base with golden shimmer. I really like this one, the shimmer is gorgeous with the dark base! The formula was good, it was easy to apply and opaque in 3 coats.

Oh My Goth-ic is a blackened base with purple/blue duochrome shimmer. The shimmer does shift in lower light but I couldn't seem to capture it with my camera. The formula was good, it was sheer but buildable and opaque in 3 coats.

Oh! The Horror! is an army green base with red shimmer. This is my personal favorite (no one is surprised right? lol) the shimmer and the base is just fabulous! The formula was good, sheer but buildable and opaque in 3 coats.

Urban Fantastical is a medium blue holo. This is the first holo from Contrary Polish and it's a really pretty one! The holo is much more noticeable in real life! the formula was good, it was easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.

The Contrary Polish Book Nerd Collection is available now from the Contrary Polish website, it will also be available at Llarowe starting today!
