    I will for certain refer back to this instruction the next time a wear a glitter NP.

    I know right? Regular nail polish would never last that long--not even with a maid, a butler and a driver--just wouldn't happen.

    So much for a no buy! lol but i had to get some of those A englands! My name is Adriana(so i love the A with a crown on the bottle) and my middle name is Elaine so i have to get that one too!! Lady of the Lake is my aunts screen name so i had to get that one too =)

    Illamasqua is getting some new spring colors as well. i am going to wait to get anymore np to swatch in person! and compare and decide which ones i want cuz BL, Illamasqua, Essie and the Estee Lauder colors are all very similiar so im going to try and not have to buy them all.

    Luckily i can skip some of the newest collections, but i am waiting for the Advent Garden and Euro opi collections!
    ughhh too many choices!!
    i dont know how peopl ewear the same color for weeks on end i change mine at least twice a week. tonight is the night i pick a new color thats going to take awhile lol
    Very pretty name, and very cool circumstance! Love the way you selected those A Englands!

That's why I have a bone to pick with HE polishes.

    That said, I sometimes let my reverse snobbery get the better of me. Must.Try.Harder!

    Ah, Fingerpaints! I searched high and low for Winter Sky last year. There isn't enough of the stuff on evilbay!


    I'd go bloody mental if I had the same NP for 2 weeks, even if it didn't chip. Boredom + regrowth = EEEEK!


    Nice! Flakies are a PITA to capture on camera. They're still visible though


    What do you mean straight? They look good enough to me.


    I love her swatches, but I find her writing contrived and annoying. It wasn't so bad when I first started checking out her blog, but now I just skip the text alltogether.


    I try to wear them on their own when I can (Girly, Hannukah and Candy Cane are new additions so I just swatched them). This means 3 coats, plus an extra to cover bald spots if necessary. They'd probably work just as well, if not better, with a base colour though. The bottles would last longer too!


    YOLO POWER!

ATM I'm trying to use up polishes from brands like Essence, Eyeko, LA Colors, H&M (small ones), etc. I want to get rid of them so I'd have more space for new China's. I have THREE large desk drawers full of nail polish and I'm running out of space.
    I'm running out of space too and it's not my fault. You ladies have twisted my arm really hard from DAY-1. Both of my 96-bottle wall racks are now full. One rack has 100 bottles and the other has 97 bottles. The size & shape of the NP bottles factor into how many the racks actually hold. I can probably squeeze a few more bottles on each rack. I've now resorted to storing the overflow in a decorative box--the very reason for getting the racks in the first place. I do like changing my polish and coordinating it with my clothing and/or makeup. It's just fun. I think Essie is one of my favorites. The bottles are cute and easy to store, and the polish wears as well as any other NP. Because they are sold in many stores, I can get immediate gratification, i.e., need a RX filled to treat an illness--cheer up with new nail polish at the same time & the same place.

    Here's my previous mani, which was my first for the New Year. Lippmann Mermaid's Dream and NARS Koliary to accent. I don't think you guys understand how much I love Mermaid's Dream. It's definitely in my top 5 list of polishes. Maybe even #1.

    You know, pastels are comforting. They make you want to whisper...soft, quiet, yet inviting! Okay so it's time to put the NP remover down and ventilate the room!!!

I ordered: - Lorelei's Tiara - Some Like It Haute - It's A Trap-eze - Ray-diant And below are the China Glazes I received: (Orly In A Snap top coat), Exotic Encounters, Love Marilyn, Twinkle Lights. Yay. :love:

    I think it'll be too expensive with the shipping costs if I order on Amazon. They'll have to ship to Europe so. :lol: It's around €5 per bottle if I order on eBay, so not too bad.

    Thank you Kaidan. I'm waiting for the release of Dior's Tutu, which is a very soft pale pink...right up my alley

    Nope, there should have been at least 20. And where's the green Estee Lauder? Tsk tsk.

    I just noticed Illamasqua's added a whole bunch of new items to the sale line. One of them is Poke n/p. I hope they're not DCing it. It's one of my favourites.

    I don't think so. I always use Paypal and I haven't noticed any weird commissions or additional fees (I have a Euro bank account). I have no reason to think there would be any for those of you who had USD accounts, but I think it would be best if fellow NP freaks confirmed this.

    Ah, you mean the rubber finish ones? They look lovely but there's no point in me buying them because I always use a top coat. My mani feels incomplete if I don't. Bloody OCD!!!

    Depends on how you have your paypal acount set up. I have it set so it bills my CC in the currency on the invoice (in this case GBP). My CC doesn't charge international currency conversion fees, but most do. You'd need to check with your bank. You can also set your paypal account to bill your CC in USD, in which case Paypal will charge your card in USD using their own rotten conversion rate - less than the official rate - so you end up paying a "hidden" conversion fee eg if the official currency conversion from GBP to USD is 1 GBP = 0.66 USD, the rate Paypal uses may be 1 GBP = 0.63 USD, so your 20 GBP order will cost you $31.75 USD instead of $30.30 USD using the official rate (which your CC would presumable use, but then they may charge a currency conversion fee on top of that).

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the compliments!

    @ kimibos - Lillibet is LE, so you may want to get it now if you can. Beauty.com still has it. It's disappeared from Ulta, Nordstrom and even Butter London's own website.

    @ honey on boost - I was able to still find Koliary at Saks.

    @ Medgal Lol!

    This is my first time ordering from A England as well, so I don't have an answer. I figure I'll know soon enough when my items ship. I'm thinking it may depend on your credit card company, though.
