Contrary Polish: 18th & Vine and Gift Wrap

Purchased by Me
Happy Saturday Polished Babes! I want to start off by saying Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law. She would've been 63 today, but unfortunately she is in heaven. This is the first birthday without her and I am praying my hubby is okay in Philly for this occasion. Unlike some people, I was fortunate enough to have a MIL that I truly loved and enjoyed. She was funny, outgoing, and had a really humble spirit. She could throw it down in the kitchen too! I truly appreciated her for welcoming me into the family with open arms. I mean...she is solely responsible for MY MAN! (hehe) I am so happy that I was able to thank her for the sacrifices she made to raise my husband into the man he is for me and our children. I shared these feelings with her a few months before she passed away and I am happy that she knew how I felt about her.

Today I have some super pretty beauties from Contrary Polish to show you. These polishes perfectly capture my most recently polish fetish...Shimmer. I know that sounds weird but, I have seriously fallen in love with simmer polishes. From subtle to very apparent, I am in LOVE with this finish. Contrary Polish has an excellent range of polishes and her shimmers are to die for.

This first polish is called 18th & Vine. This one is a beautiful blue polish with purple undertones and pink shimmer. The formula was great and it went on very smoothly. This is such a beautiful polish and it is surely a staple in my collection.

Don't you love this?! The AHHH....

Gift Wrap is a purple with a teal colored iridescent shimmer. Hold on while I pick my jaw up off the floor. This makes no sense at all. Gorgeous is an understatement!! This is one of those polishes that will definitely get a lot of play from me. Again, the formula was fantastic and I am in L.O.V.E.

Shimmer, shimmer, shimmer...


I just wanted to show you a couple of my most recent manis. I also used these as undies for The Octopus Party Lacquers I reviewed HERE. I have a full house, minus hubby for the weekend. My mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law, and nephew are visiting for the weekend. Hubby comes back from Philly tomorrow and I miss him. He's been gone since Tuesday, so it will be great for him to be back home.

Happy Saturday!
