    Thanks, but I'm all EP'd out now.

    Thanks. I was very happy with myself selling 2 dupes. I also sold 3 Pretty Serious polishes as they were all glitters and I didn't particularly like them, so that's one less brand now as well. Of course I have already spent the money on more polish, hahaha!

    Speaking of which, my Stackry stuff came today. I was expecting the package yesterday, but they didn't deliver for some reason, don't know why. So many gorgeous polishes in there.

    The EPs are quite nice, there's a lot of shimmer in January (not sure if they'll show up on the nails though) and February is certainly very pretty. Got my free Opalescent Rainbow too.

    Let me know if you want close ups on anything. Can't be bothered to resize every photo, such a pain, but if you're interested in anything in detail, I don't mind.

    A few manis too. First is Dreamland Coral of the Story II with Revlon Zealous (2012 untried) and decals made with the Dreamland and a Hit the Bottle stamping polish.

    The next one was one of my must wears, Cupcake Berry Good Looking. On the accents it's Emily de Molly Best Dressed Guest, stamped with BGL. Amazing polish, it's everything I'd hoped it would be.

    My current mani is Lilypad Lacquer Amphitrite. It was just a quick mani as I was really tired last night to even think about what to pair it with and didn't have any time this morning to add any stamping, etc. It's a nice enough colour though.

    Really tired today, my eldest is on a school trip to Krakow/Auschwitz and they left at 4.40 this morning, so I was up in the middle of the night with him. Also had to run around half the morning with the dog and picking up my middle one early from school, because my ex took her to a concert and signing by one of her favourite bands in London. Need to sleep.

    Yay, go you, well done for a VERY mini destash!!!
    I'm glad to hear the EPs are nicer than expected and the freebie arrived too.
    That is a stunning haul - are you pleased with your CrowsToes? A couple of them really look amazing!
    Some real pretties in there, Illyrians look special too! Enjoy.

    Nails Inc Hampstead Heath topped with Hits Air Glow:
    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-hampstead-heath-air-glow-3-jpg
    I love this combo! It was my third attempt at topping it - I started with Silver Tulle, and thought it looked awful. Then I went to my OPI Gold Shatter, which had dried up completely (I think I must not have shut it properly, there was loads in it and I have much older ones that are OK). So yay, threw something away!!!!!
    I wasn't convinced Air Glow would look good at all, but I adore it! The green shift doesn't show at all, but the glitters do move from orange to gold, with sparks of pink and red, this topper really improved a fairly boring colour.

    Uh, totally love the pink mani with the flower @Anitacska ! Also, I think PQ should only wear red polishes - they really suit you!

    I came back from my Icelandic holiday to find my EPs. I'm rather underwhelmed tbh - I like the black holo wih the tiny flakies, but they disappear on the nail. Also, that has to be the worst formula of an EP yet - it's very thick and drags the already applied polish off the nail if you're not super careful.
    I'd like the LITSWD dupe much better if there wasn't that green shimmer in it - it's the same as in Liquid Love, I don't like it and it looks horrid on me (every light green does). So, I'm totally not sure if I should go for the next round - for all you experienced hands at the mysteries, does she seasonal colours so that we can kinda predict the colours of the next ones?

    Thank you. Yes, I am very pleased with the CrowsToes, they're all gorgeous. 1 Murder Please... is a bit duller than the others, but it's still very nice. I'm glad I went for the original and linear holo versions, but I think if I could've only got one, I probably would've gone for sparked. Same shift as the original with a bit of holo sparkle. Here are a few pictures for you to drool over.

    The Illyrians are very nice too. Did you get my message about the swap? Let me know, so I can order some empty decant bottles.

    Yes, it was ridiculous, but this way they got to spend a bit more time there. He did enjoy it, and said Auschwitz was very interesting, but also horrible. They had a survivor who was 3 at the time of being taken to A tell them a lot of things and from what he told me, it was horrific. They ended the day in a fun pool to help them switch off which I thought was a great idea.

    Lovely manis. I have the Hits one as well, I think it's dupe for one of the EP City Lights polishes, Ola Rio maybe?

    One of my OPI shatters dried up too, must have been a bad formula, it was such a pretty bright blue as well. But yay for throwing it out!

    Thank you! The decals didn't come out too well irl, but glad it didn't show in the pictures. The biggest problem was that I used a different topcoat to make the decals and they cracked while I was peeling them off the mat and applying them. Will need to try something else, but my bottle of OPI base coat is now all gone and I didn't have a clear polish to use. Might get one of the Essence or Barry M ones to try.

    Oh no, sorry to hear about EP January having a crappy formula. I haven't tried mine. I actually really like February, but it might not look good on me either. March has always been green, so I'd expect that again this year, maybe a Green Goblin or Gummy Worm dupe. April is often a pastel, then May, June, July, August are usually bright (pink, red, orange, blue, purple), but not always. October is usually grey or black. I will continue to buy this year because I know I will miss out on the best colours if I don't buy them all. Oh the joys of mysteries.

    I also have a couple of manis to share. First one is Lilypad Lacquer Pretty Pearl with Alchemy Lacquers Hyperion. I love both of these polishes so much, but especially the Alchemy! Those flakies and that shimmer!

    My current mani is CbL The Fallen. This is a typical PearlyQueen polish and I love it so much!

    So happy with how my nails are looking at the moment (at least on my left hand anyway!) and terrified that I might break them. I've been putting off cleaning my oven for weeks now because I know it will end in casualties.

    Hi Anneri, thanks for that - you know I love a good red! I might get bored if it was all I wore mind!
    so sorry to hear you're underwhelmed with your EPs, I haven't got mine yet but I know what you mean. It's not like them to do a bad formula, but that just compounds things really.
    I'm not a big fan of the pale green shimmer either.
    I suspect March will be green, April will be pastel - no guarantees though, I'm tempted to skip both and rejoin in May, but don't quote me!

    Oo, lovely, thanks for extra pics!
    Sorry, I totally missed you'd PM'd me, I'll look in a minute!
    Glad your son's trip went well, it does sound like a good idea to unwind the kids afterwards.
    This may be blasphemy, but I loved the Hits, I wore Ola Rio once and hated it... Probably very similar, and I'm sure it was the colour I wore underneath that made the difference!
    Interesting about your OPI, maybe I didn't leave it open! No loss, I'm not a fan of shatters, I still have a Nails Inc purple one, and no doubt will try it again, but I've hated them every time I've used them.

    Pretty!!! Yes, I love both, and have worn and adored The Fallen, you're right it's sooo me! The Lilypad is really cute too, I think I have it unworn.
    Your nails do look great (my right hand has had two breakages waaaayyyy down, can't bring myself to chop all the others though).

    No problem. PM'd you back.

    Hahaha, I don't actually think EP is the best brand by far, one of the reasons why I hate it that I'm so sucked into buying everything. There are several brands that I love more and so many gorgeous polishes around, yet I still cough up $16 for mysteries and (almost) all the other polishes she comes out with.

    I have a really nice shatter polish, it's by 17/Seventeen and one of the very few polishes I've used more than once!

    On my right hand I have a low side break that I've been patching up for weeks, it's only just reaching the edge of the nail bed. I really hate those breaks, no idea why I keep getting them. They're either on my thumb or little finger. Odd.

    This is pretty. Lacquester is another brand I'm trying hard not to get sucked into. I only have 2 of their polishes from boxes/duos, but I have seen so many gorgeous polishes, however I really can't keep buying from more and more brands.

    I just checked my credit card bill and with my car insurance and MOT both paid for this past month and a massive overspend on nail polish, I now really need to be good this coming month. I'll have a couple of big expenses this spring/summer, so need to be more careful.

    I have a few haul and mani pictures to share.

    First is RC order with the exclusive Femme Fatales. She'll have two more exclusives launching this week.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170315_134244-jpg

    I also got the Nailland exclusives. I organised a group buy, so the shipping was free, but the courier has got to be the slowest ever - 6 days from Hungary! They did include a free polish, Illyrian Blue Moon, which I already have. I feel a bit bad about keeping the polish to myself, but not sure what else to do as there were 6 of us in the group buy. Can't really split it up, can I?

    I also won a free polish from Tonic, it's a prototype and it's so pretty! Really chuffed with it! Very shifty and sparkly, much nicer than my picture shows.

    Hahaha, I don't actually think EP is the best brand by far, one of the reasons why I hate it that I'm so sucked into buying everything. There are several brands that I love more and so many gorgeous polishes around, yet I still cough up $16 for mysteries and (almost) all the other polishes she comes out with.

    I have a really nice shatter polish, it's by 17/Seventeen and one of the very few polishes I've used more than once!



    Thank you!

    On my right hand I have a low side break that I've been patching up for weeks, it's only just reaching the edge of the nail bed. I really hate those breaks, no idea why I keep getting them. They're either on my thumb or little finger. Odd.



    This is pretty. Lacquester is another brand I'm trying hard not to get sucked into. I only have 2 of their polishes from boxes/duos, but I have seen so many gorgeous polishes, however I really can't keep buying from more and more brands.

    I just checked my credit card bill and with my car insurance and MOT both paid for this past month and a massive overspend on nail polish, I now really need to be good this coming month. I'll have a couple of big expenses this spring/summer, so need to be more careful.
    I only have two Lacquesters too, I added them to a recent C4N order, but I love this one!
    I stayed in budget this month for the first time ever!!! Depressingly, I've got loads of expenses coming up next month, so I need to keep resisting for a while longer. I won't manage nothing, but I really should!
    Gutted this morning though to find the Pahlish anniversary colours I wanted had already sold out - hoping I catch them next week!

    Yay for free polishes, congratulations! I'm trying to resist following single FFs from shop to shop... Still haven't got those Beautometry ones I wanted!

    Wow, well done for staying in budget! I don't think I've ever done it. I don't really have a strict budget, but I definitely spent far too much last month. Been pretty good so far, but I've seen the new FFs, Glams and Illyrians coming out (or rather in the case of the Illyrians, coming to RC) and also there are some gorgeous EdMs I really want to get, so will see how restraint I manage to remain. I'm also guessing there will be some new EPs this month.

    Sorry you missed out on the Pahlishes. I don't really follow the brand that closely myself, but they do have some very pretty polishes. There are a few I'd like, but right now, it's a no-go.

    Beautometry said they won't be restocking Crapemyrtle, so if you wanted that, order it asap! That's the pink to purple thermal.

    It is absolutely gorgeous! I have this too, not worn of course, but there are so many beautiful Tonics, I'm not sure when I'll get around to wearing them all.

    Finally got around to posting some mani pictures. First one is Bear Pawlish Scar with Nails Inc Piccadilly Arcade (2012 untried).

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170316_135608-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170316_135650-jpg

    Next one is Enchanted Polish Unipeg with Enchanted Polish Winter plus decals on top of Winter. For the decals I used EP Unipeg, Pegacorn, Alicorn, Britney SpearMint and Color Club Star Light, Star Bright.

    I have to say, I was rather pleased with this one. So much so that I couldn't bear to take the unicorns off, so I just replaced Unipeg with Glam Polish Crash!

    They are going tonight though, not looking their best now after cleaning the bathroom. Oh and I cleaned my oven the other day and there were no casualties! I did hurt my right thumb a bit, but it's okay now.

    You've probably all had the email, but just in case: EP pre-order and restock on Sunday from 6 pm UK time. Anneri hope you're not flying then!

    I'm ordering the monthlies, I can't miss out on those this year. Hope they're really pretty.

    It is absolutely gorgeous! I have this too, not worn of course, but there are so many beautiful Tonics, I'm not sure when I'll get around to wearing them all.

    Ha, my budget of zero didn't last long this month, I did the EP preorder, even though I wasn't going to, I just knew if I didn't the ones I lust after most would be included! And though I couldn't afford all the Pahlishes, they did restock at 1am so I splurged on a couple of the limited ones I've been fancying for a while! So no buy month is a bust, and I still have a massive list of things I really wish I could buy now. I'm rubbish at this!
    Fortunately Crapemyrtle isn't one I want, I'm not a huge lover of thermals.
    I've loved wearing this Tonic, it's dying now but I've spent the whole week wiggling my fingers and staring at the pretty colours! Tonic's one of the brands I've now got a massive wishlist for of course, plus waiting for the newest Takkos to come to a stockist, loving the new Powder Perfects, behind with Polished for Days and waiting for Illyrians at RC and lusting after some Glams. And Darling Divas. Argh, it never stops!!!

    Wowzer, some gorgeous manis there - and I love your unicorns, no wonder they lasted for two manis! My pick of your other colours is Crash! - I do have it in my enormous pile of untrieds, and hopefully I'll wear it one day!
    Ouchie on your thumb, hope it's recovered!

    I'm still new to the indie game. Can't keep up with all the different brands and random restocks.
    And the groups that have special polishes made....it's too much!
    Are you all just happy if you use a polish once?

    No, it really never stops! My 3 Alexes are completely full now, I also have about 5 drawers in the rainbow tower full of polish and had to move a bunch of polishes back into the Helmer. I was going to keep it for paperwork and bits and bobs downstairs, but now it has one drawer full of nail art stuff (vinyls, brushes, stampers, etc.), one and a half drawers of China Glaze polishes, half a drawer of stamping polishes and one drawer of Nails Inc and other drugstore polishes. Oh dear. My wishlist is always huge, but this month I'm really trying to only buy the LE/urgent ones. I have so far ordered the 2 EPs, one of the Femme Fatale HHC polishes, 4 Tonics (one was a LE charity polish), 2 RC exclusive Femme Fatales, 4 Illyrians (from RC) and the Holo Hookup box, but only the Diff Dim is mine, the other 3 are for someone else. I have a $10 off $40 code from Diff Dim that I need to use before 1st April and I really want the new Femme Fatales (Neon Demon collection and some old shades coming back), but after that I have to stop until the middle of next month.

    I also love the new PfDs and the Cupcakes, but the new Glam collection, although it seemed so pretty at first, has lost my interest again. I received my previous order and I really only liked 3 of the 5 I ordered. I now only want the Princess Leia polish this month, but not for $6 shipping, so I think I'll pass. Glad you managed to grab the Pahlishes you wanted. My friend just sold me 4 polishes, one being Pahl8ish Asteroid B-612 that I'd been eyeing up for a while. I love The Little Prince, one of my favourite books ever, so it's doubly nice to have this polish. (That's what the Little Prince's home planet is called, in case you didn't know.)

    Oh yeah, I'm now in far too many groups and it's really difficult to keep up and also to not want to buy everything!

    I'm just happy to own them to be honest! I know I probably won't even wear some of them even once (unless I live to 100!). There are very few polishes I've used more than once, other than topcoat, basecoat, black and white cremes, stamping polishes, there's probably another 10, maybe 15? Sad I know.

    Quick haul post, I'll do another one with my manis, but it takes a while to crop everything.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170324_143355-jpg

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170324_143506-jpg

    The dark blue FF is from Beauty So Fly, the other two from RC. And that is the cutest stamping plate I've ever seen!

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170328_131234-jpg

    These are from my friend. The FF is a Polish Molish exclusive, I nearly ordered it, but it would've worked out nearly £15. She didn't want it and sold it for £8!

    It is too much, I'm trying to cut back on the number of brands I "must" have - I've dropped a few! And I've tried to avoid joining any groups etc, though I do belong to the Glam one, because shipping is cheaper.
    One of my plans for this year is to wear polishes I love more than once - I've used Shade Shifter three times! I'm going to have to work on immortality if I want to wear all of them this often though!

    My new mani is Nails Inc Wardour Mews:
    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-wardour-mews-jpg
    Doesn't look as good on as it does in the bottle - and it took 4 coats to get close to opacity (if I wasn't bored, I'd have done another, but not worth the effort in all honesty). It's not terrible, but a bit dull.
