We have discovered the joy of minis! We were going broke buying polish, but then we found out that a lot of the Indy brands carry mini bottles, which is so perfect for us! The very first order of minis we placed was with a great brand called Contrary Polish. Carrie is such a sweetie, and our shipment quickly arrived. If you want to order full size, she sells her polishes through several different sites listed on her blog, but for minis you email her directly. We had ordered minis of Firebrand, Blood Orange, Almandine, and Tiger’s Eye. Keep an eye out on future posts for swatches of those colors.
From Shannon ~ for your consideration: Contrary Polish Firebrand. This is a deep raspberry jelly with red and pink shimmer. This is an interesting shade to me because indoors it looks like a reddish brown with a red shimmer, but outside it is definitely has a purple lean to it, and the sun really brings out the pink shimmer! Either way you look at it, this is a gorgeous color! Application was smooth but it did take 3 coats for full opacity.
By the way – not easy posing your nails around a mini bottle hahaha!
You can really see both the red and pink shimmer in this pic:
This color is definitely one I would buy a full-size bottle of. What are your thoughts?
