Contrary Polish Darling Wildflower from May's A Box, Indied

Hi everyone! Today I have a gorgeous polish from Contrary Polish to share with you. Contrary Polish Darling Wildflower is an exclusive to May's A Box, Indied which goes on sale today at Llarowe at 12 PM MDT and again at 7 PM MDT. This month's theme is "The Deadly and the Beautiful" and all of the polishes/products celebrate nature's flora. Other makers included in this month's box include CrowsToes, Hare Polish, Black Cat Lacquer, and Glisten & Glow (cuticle oil).

Darling Wildflower is a purple jelly with orange and red shimmery flakes. The shimmer is very apparent on the nail and just stunning! The jelly finish is sheer, but buildable. In real life, 3 thin coats was perfect for me, but I thought that 4 coats looked better in pictures and gave a more accurate representation of what the polish looks like in real life (one of the hazards of photographing jellies, I have found.) One of the things that I love about Contrary's jellies is that they dry quickly between coats, and you should definitely let the coats dry a bit to avoid dragging. I'm a purple shimmer lover, and this one is just gorgeous!! I adore this combination of colors.


A Box, Indied is available from Llarowe for $50 each. The polishes and products that are included in each month's box are exclusive to that box and will not be available individually. You can sign up to receive a box each month or you can purchase the boxes individually when they are released. Follow Llarowe's Facebook page for announcements of exact dates and times of releases (the box for the next month is usually released around the end of the previous month.) She will also give previews of the products and makers that will be in the box (there is a rotation of makers that are included, it isn't always the same). Thanks for looking everyone!

  1. This makes me excited that I bought this month's box. Between this and the HARE polish offered, i'm excited and feel like it was worth the money!
