Hello Toxid Lotus readers!

I’ve been lucky enough to have the chance to take over the blog for the day. Today I have a polish from Contrary Polish to show you. Bright Lights, Small City was part of the July 2014 A Box Indied from Llarowe. I managed to snag one for myself a couple weeks ago from a stash sale.

Bright Lights, Small City features a navy jelly base with a coppery-red shimmer throughout. Don’t freak out when the first coat is super streaky. It does layer up very nicely. It took me three coats to reach opacity but I feel like if I were a bit more careful I could have done it in two. Photos show three coats of Bright Lights, Small City with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

The only thing that left me wanting with this polish was the shimmer. It was a lot more apparent in the bottle than on the nail. I feel like if I did two coats instead of three it would show through more though. A balancing point is the wear time. I’m on my fourth day of wearing this polish and there’s not a chip to be seen. It seems to play very nicely with my base of Duri Rejuvocate and CND Super Sticky base coat. You can’t buy this polish directly anymore but you can still find it floating around in sale and swap groups. You can find Contrary Polish at:

I hope you enjoyed my post today and I’d love for you to come visit me in my natural habitat over at www.thelazylaquerista.com.

Happy polishing,

– Michelle

Seriously though I stumbled across her music the other day while drooling over Sugarpill makeup. I think I’m in love. <3 So I though I’d share for those who have never heard of her, or heard her. She’s magical.

That is all.

Loving that song right now. We talked to Sascha today. Gosh I miss him. It’s hard to believe he’s really 9 now. He read to us for awhile. He’s doing really well. He had to ask Tom for help on a few words but he did really well reading. I’m super proud of him. So is Kai. He got to see Sushi. He of course thinks she’s adorable. :) She is pretty cute. Thanksgiving is coming up quick. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. Pretty soon it will be Christmas and then Fumiko will be 3 and then I’ll be 29. Holy cow. So I’ve lost a total of 21 pounds and gone down 2 belt holes. That’s… huge. It excites me and gives me some hope. Met with Kharizma the other day, love her. Hopefully she and Spencer are eating Thanksgiving with us. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in the area where we were. But it made me wish they’d put exit signs a little further away from my exit so I don’t miss them. -.- Ah well.

Better late than never! :) Our guild finally downed Professor Putricide on 25m tonight. Wee. Onto Blood-Queen Lana’thel! We got her to 50ish% before we called it. Hopefully next week she shall go down. Our 10m will be going back in for Lich King attempts on Sunday. We should have him. Cross your fingers! Also I assume you have but did you see the cute little wind rider cub? Gosh it’s SO CUTE. I want and I’m not even a hordie. The in game pet is even cuter. The baby gryphon I think is ugly. >.> Okay the plushie is not ugly but the in game pet is. >.> Also Lurky is ugly too. @_@ Eep…

Anyways. Saturday morning I am taking the kids over to Dawn’s for breakfast. Yum. Last time we went over she made scrambled egg with cheese and bacon and croissant rolls. Mmmm. Was yummy. I have no idea what she’s making Saturday but I’m sure it shall be yummy. My mom made white beans with ham tonight. It was delish. Like really really yummy. But beans don’t like me. And it made me sick minutes after eating it. It was good though. >.> I think I shall do tacos for lunch tomorrow. Sascha has been bugging me all day for more tacos. It’s about the only time I don’t have to bug him about eating his vegetables. :d

I think I shall be off to level my shaman for a bit and then shower and then bed. I am tired, okay exhausted and I hurt. :( Stupid period. Also I am done trying with Emo Vote. :( No one can figure out why it isn’t working.

Also I love this song. Enjoy and take it to heart. :)
