Contrary Polish - Sweet Poison | July Polish Pickup

Hi, y'all! It's time for another new-to-me brand thanks to Polish Pickup. The concept of PPU is such a good one and yet, such a bad one (for my wallet and my backlog). Contrary Polish specializes in contrasting shimmer, which means I just want to buy all the polishes! 

Now, to Sweet Poison



Sweet Poison is a medium blue leaning green creme based linear holographic with aqua shimmer and sapphire blue microflakes.

Glossy nail macro.


Yes, another blue. I have a problem and I don't want any help! This one is so unique and such a good first polish for me from Contrary. The shimmer slays me.


The only thing that makes me sad about this polish is the visible nail line. A third coat could have probably alleviated it, and it's really only noticeable in direct lighting, but it still makes me a little sad (or it did when I had long nails, #shortylife).


Matte nail macro.


I really love this polish with the matte top coat. The microflakes really show through and the base color is gorgeous matte.


Formula: Amazing.
Coats for Opacity: Two coats, VNL.
Ease of Dry: Normal dry.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
