A Box, Indied - Bal Masqué

The march "A Box, Indied" has arrived (I wasn't sure if I'd really get it, I had to renew my subscription due to the new Llarowe site and didn't get an order confirmation or a shipping notice, and my request by email was never answered), and here's the first polish: Contrary Polish Bal Masqué.

Bal Masqué (that's french for fancy dress party / masked ball) is a periwinkle-leaning purple jelly with a strong greenish-golden flakie shimmer. The polish is a little on the stringy side, but still quite easy to apply. The first coat was very sheer, but it built up nicely and was wearable with three coats.

Then I used Pueen plate 54 (of the "stamping buffet") and China Glaze Cherish to add this circle pattern. The result somehow reminds me of these little dotted chocolate easter eggs from Migros (that's a swiss supermarket chain).

Contrary Polish are available at Llarowe, Femme Fatale, Mei Mei's SignaturesNorway Nails and Rainbow Connection (UK only). Bal Masqué was exclusive to the march "A Box, Indied". The box with five polishes is available at Llarowe as a one month only box or as subscription (50$ per box).


  1. Beautiful combination!!! This one I haven't tried yet - I see, it seems to be a typical Contrary formula wise maybe the consistency is due to the lot more shimmer than in your usual Contrary - heb en schöne Tag xxx

  3. But for me it would have beran blue/green eggs 😄
