Contrary Polish Slavegirl Bikini

I have another polish that was initially in the May 2015 A Box, Indied. Today I have Contrary Polish Slavegirl Bikini, based, as you can probably guess, on the infamous slave bikini that Leia wears in Return of the Jedi! Slavegirl Bikini is gorgeous deep cherry red with red shimmer and scattered holographic shimmer (or maybe very small holo glitters). I'll be honest, when I first saw this I was a bit disappointed. This wasn't the color I associated with the infamous bikini-- I always associate a deeper, more burgundy color with it-- but this is color I have! Despite my initial reservations, once I put this on I immediately apologized for judging it before I wore it, because this polish is perfect!

The formula was good and very easy to apply. Slavegirl Bikini does have a more crelly formula and so it isn't totally opaque. I am pretty sure I used three coats and there is a slight visible nail line but nothing that bothers me, as it seems typical for these types of reds! I actually wore this to the Star Wars costume exhibit at the EMP and it was just perfect!




I'm not really happy with these photos, because I don't feel like I've captured Slavegirl Bikini very well. Argh! But in the end, this polish is freaking gorgeous and such a strong, beautiful color. I really liked more than I anticipated, which is always good. It's feminine but also kickass, just like Leia-- especially as she now has the nickname "Huttslayer." Definitely a winner in my books!
