Feels Like Home. This is a taupe color with a pink shimmer. Contrary Polish's claim to fame is their shimmer. I was considering not getting any of these because the shimmer from Creeping Moss, the first polish I bought from her, was .... meh. This collection turned it around!
I love (and have) quite a selection of taupe polishes, and this one has a unique shimmer and is really quite demure and lovely.
Ain't no Sunshine.
If you can ignore the part about how he cheats on his girl because she's not around, it's a beautiful, melancholy song by Bill Withers. And I feel the same way about this polish. Grey/blue, but with a white flakie shimmer.
The color is reminiscent of Illamasqua Raindrops, but it's not a dupe, IMO. I saw some nail art by Raggio di Luna that I thought would look nice with this color, so I did my version here.
Are you loving the Love Lyrics collection? Ain't No Sunshine is a clear winner for me, and the reason I stalked this collection, but there are some beautiful polishes here. If you'd like to find out more about Contrary Polish, you can find them on Facebook. She sells minis via e-mail through her blog, but you can buy full-size polishes through Llarowe, and some other e-tailers (she has a list on her blog.)
I'll have a couple more Contrary Polishes for you tomorrow, with some more nail art. Stay tuned!
