Hello friends! Have you ever slept in a weird position and your body feels out of whack? When I woke up this morning, I was hanging off the bed…how do you even stay asleep when half your body is hanging off the edge of your bed? Now today my arms are crazy sore for whatever reason. I’m such a weirdo. I’ve always had a lot of sleeping issues and strange habits. I am not sure if I have talked about this on my blog yet, but I used to have a lot of sleep paralysis episodes. Basically, you feel like you are awake but you’re unable to move or speak. My episodes usually involved me seeing and feeling something move in the dark. Then I would feel the pressure of something getting on my bed, crawling up me and trying to smother or choke me. There were even times when it felt like I was being dragged off my bed. If this has ever happened to you, I’m sure you know how scary that feels. I am not necessarily religious, but I would pray like crazy whenever that happened until the feeling went away and I was able to get up. For like the longest time I thought my apartment was haunted or that I was going nuts–and then I read up on Sleep Paralysis which I am fairly certain is what I experienced. The worst part was that it was happening often…maybe a couple of times per month so I was freaking out all the time. I haven’t had one of those episodes in a while now so I’m super relieved. Watch me have one tonight…
Anyway, now that I’ve terrified you about possibly experiencing Sleep Paralysis, let me make it all better by showing you some new pretty polish. I picked up the Contrary Polish Color Context Trio as soon as the minis were available on Carrie’s blog. I know I mentioned it when I reviewed the Ain’t That A Beach Trio, but I am completely smitten and in love with Contrary Polish. If you haven’t tried these, do yourself a favor and at least pick up a mini or two and get ready for a polishgasm.
Contrary Polish Blood Orange
Contrary Polish Greenhouse
Contrary Polish Indigo Rose
I didn’t talk about each polish individually because the formula was pretty consistent on all three polishes: I felt it was a tad thicker than what I like and it was a little sheer as well. I applied two thick coats and that gave me full coverage. I wish my pictures could capture just how glowy these polishes are. I absolutely adore these three polishes, but I have to say that I’ve got a big old polish boner for Greenhouse. I can’t stand how gorgeous this polish is and I must have the full size stat!
I also want to mention that I had some issues with the brushes on a couple of polishes from the Ain’t That A Beach Trio. Carrie included a few extra caps in my package since she read about it here. I know it was just something small but it wowed me because she not only read my review, but actually did something about it! Once again, I’m telling you that the customer service I’ve gotten from the indie brands I buy from is spectacular. If you’re interested in purchasing some minis, Carrie sells them on her blog on Fridays. You can check them out here. If you want to purchase a full size bottle, you can check at the following stockists: Llarowe, Femme Fatale Cosmetics and Shoppe Eclecticco.
Thanks so much for checking in with me today and talk to you soon!
