Contrary Polish Gift Wrap Swatches & Review


Contrary Polish Gift Wrap

Hello readers,
It's December! Which means the holidays are right around the corner.  Gift Wrap seems like the perfectly named polish to start things off.


Gift Wrap features a plum purple jelly base filled with a strong turquoise shimmer.  In direct bright light the shimmer dominates and the overall colour leans more blue.  In dim light the base colour dominates and the overall colour leans more red.  The formula was easy to work with though a tad sheer.  It took three coats to become opaque and dried with a waxy finish.  Photos show three coats of Gift Wrap with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Such a pretty shade! I like the contrast between the purple base and turquoise shimmer.  You can find Contrary Polish on


Happy polishing,

Michelle
