Contrary Polish Fall 2012 Limited Edition Duo

I swatched the inaugural collection from Contrary Polish a couple months back; today I have the two limited edition colors she put out for Fall 2012, Hayride and Bonfire.



Hayride is a light warm brown with copper, gold, and brown microglitter/shimmer. I used three coats plus topcoat for these swatches. I could have probably stopped at two coats of color but wanted more sparklies on my nails.







Hayride has a nice glow in low light, too:



Bonfire is an orange-leaning red with microglitter/shimmer in brown and red (or maybe it's orange or possibly pink or possibly some mix—I thought I saw all those shades at one point). Like Hayride, I used three coats plus topcoat but could have done two coats.







Also like Hayride, Bonfire glows in lower light:



These two were sold out at Llarowe last I looked, but according to the Contrary Polish blog, it seems that a restock could happen later this fall, and mini bottles of these were on the list of ones available direct from the blog as of the last update there.
