Contrary Polish August 2017 Polish Pickup

I have the Contrary Polish August 2017 Polish Pickup contribution to share with you!

The Polish Pickup theme for August is Old Hollywood.  Earlier I shared the Night Owl Lacquer polish and now it is time for the Contrary Polish August 2017 Polish Pickup shade.  Contrary Polish chose Lauren Bacall as their inspiration.  This can be yours on Friday, August 4th at 11am until August 7th.  I have more info at the end of the post.

Their polish was inspired by the picture below of Lauren Bacall, the queen of the sexy side eye.

“JUST WHISTLE”

Contrary Polish August 2017 Polish Pickup Just Whistle

The name of this polish comes from her film debut in To Have and Have Not, specifically from the highly memorable scene where she says to Humphrey Bogart, “You don’t have to act with me, Steve.  You don’t have to say anything and you don’t have to do anything.  Not a thing.  Oh, maybe just whistle.  You know how to whistle, don’t you Steve?  You just put yours lips together and blow.”

“Just Whistle” is a slightly greyed taupe base with bronze flakes and micro glitter, strong purple shimmer, and a bit of linear holo shimmer to add some extra sparkle.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.

The flakes technically shift from gold to bronze to silver, but against this base they appear bronze in most light.  I just love how well the inspiration photo and polish match!
