Swatches/Sale: Wintry Weather

Good morning!

I’ve been getting questions about when the new trio will be available, and since the answer (“soon but no official launch date yet”) did not seem to satisfy everyone who asked 😉 I decided to have an informal launch today via the blog.

These polishes will be made available to the webstores that stock Contrary, and there will be proper swatches done by bloggers, so if you’d like to wait for that, there is no rush. This soft launch is just for those who want them and want them now! 😀

The details:

  • Please email ContraryPolish@gmail.com with orders.
  • Full-size bottles are $10 and mini bottles are $5 (plus shipping).
  • Invoices will be sent through Paypal.
  • Orders received today will ship by this Friday.

 

Now onto the Wintry Weather trio!

Wintry Weather Trio

 

First up is Snowy Night, a dark navy blue with white shimmer/flakes. Only white micas and flakes went into this one, but due to the contrast with the navy background, you get a bit of an aqua sparkle as well. I apologize, but I don’t have swatches of this one just yet.

Next is Winter Sun, an ivory with gold shimmer/flakes. I do have swatches of this one, but keep in mind these pictures were taken in artificial light, so they lean a bit yellow; the base is whiter than it looks in the swatch pictures.

And finally, we have Frozen Sky, a blue-leaning grey with silver shimmer/flakes. Specifically, in addition to the metallic silver shimmer, the base is loaded with actual sterling silver flakes and microflakes. I’ve been loving wearing all three of these polishes, but this one might be my favorite. Protip: it looks amazing matte too. 😉

Moving the Blog

Hi guys! This has been a long time coming, but I’m officially moving the Contrary Polish blog here, (www.contrarypolish.com/blog/), rather than trying to maintain both this site and my original Blogger site (contrarypolish.blogspot.com).

There may be some functionality issues with the older posts I’ve imported (example: references to a sidebar will no longer apply), but hopefully there are no major issues. If you see any you think are a concern, please let me know!

Mini bottle orders will still work the same as they did in the past; the only difference is instead of viewing the blog sidebar for details on how to order, there is now a separate page for mini bottle orders.

Thanks for reading, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Cyber Monday Sale

It’s time! From now until 4 pm CST, I will be accepting full-size and mini orders via email. The prices for the new winter collection are $10 for full-size and $5 for minis, and the prices for all older colors are $8 for full-size and $4 for minis (a discount of 20%).

I have bottle pictures of the new collection to share with you! However, if you would rather wait for swatches (or if you just miss this sale), don’t worry because there will definitely be future opportunities to get this collection. :)


Contrary Polish On the Rocks – Winter 2013


Tiger’s Eye (bronzy brown with metallic gold shimmer)




Graphite (muddled grey jelly with varied shimmer/micro-flakes – gold, silver, pink, grey)



Obsidian (purple near-black jelly with varied color-shifting shimmer – green and blue shifting to pink and blurple)




Almandine (oxblood red with gold to green color-shifting shimmer)




Fluorite (blurple with green to pink color-shifting shimmer)


Note: This polish is quite a bit more purple/less blue than it appears in these photos. The base color is similar to OPI Sapphire in the Snow, if that helps you to picture it. :)

Please see the sidebar for details on how to place an order, and thank you for visiting my blog!
