    I wouldn't have bought any of the EPs this year if I'd seen them in advance, I'm really underwhelmed. So many I have been lusting after from the past, and not one has been in the mix. I'm tempted to stop - but that's when she'll bring out the Penny Lane, Awesomeness, Dragon Spit, Sour Patch Kids, Razzmanian Devil, Cranberry Cosmo etc etc etc! This lot have all been INSIPID!

    Did anyone pick up anything from the July 4th sales/coupons? I feel like there are some great discounts, but I don't want to shop just to shop. I'll definitely be picking up the FTLOP box.
    I haven't spotted anyone doing sales except Llarowe and LynB (and she always has a sale on!). I can't afford anything anyway - but I'm going to make an exception for the FTLOP this month too, I love it!

    No, I was hoping Glam Polish would have a sale, or Illyrian, because I love the new collections, but no luck there.

    I am definitely buying the FTLOP box too, and probably a few PfDs to go with them too. You know, to save on shipping.

    Yeah, it wasn't very cost effective, but had to send them as I didn't want to pay for storage. But as i'm trying to buy less, I will probably end up only having this amount in there each time.

    Thank you!

    Batchelor's Button was on my wishlist for ages, but I dumped it eventually, I've been a bit underwhelmed by my recent F.U.N polish buys. Looks nice on you mind!
    Thank you!

    I haven't bought many FUNs lately either, find them rather meh.

    Nah, you probably would've bought them anyway. I quite liked February, March and April, and May is nice (well, Bruised Nutcracker is, and it's the same), but they're just not amazing. I'd like the ones you listed above too, except Awesomeness that I already own, but it is really amazing, so if I were to get a back up of anything, it would be that.

    This month's FTLOP box is amazing!

    I was really hoping Glam Polish and/or Illyrian would have 4th July sales, but alas no. I wanted to get The Forced Unleashed from the Glam UK shop, but she said there weren't any left, yet it's still available from the main shop? So I ended up passing on everything this month. I thought I might order directly if she has a good sale, but she didn't. Oh well, I'll think about it until next month.

    You're probably right, I'd have bought at least some of them, I'm kidding myself!
    I already have Bruised Nutcracker, hoping it's not identical but it's still in the US at the moment so I can't tell.

    I'm too broke for sales, so I'm glad I don't have to break the bank for all the bargains - I think it's all about Black Friday these days, I was looking for goodies on Memorial Day too but there was nothing.
    I may get a couple of extra PfDs with the box, I really could buy loads but I can't afford to! But I hope I get the box, it's sooo pretty, first time I've loved a whole box worth of these ltd editions.

    My latest mani is Powder Perfect In My Dreams:
    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-dreams-jpg

    It's really a lot more magenta in the flesh, but camera is just hooked on the purple shimmer! Took several pics but none of them look accurate.
    It's a really pretty polish, but it was very runny and took four coats to hide its bald bits - totally worth it though, and it's a quick drying one, so not too long a job!

    I have seen comparisons and they're pretty much the same, sadly.

    The box is pre-order, so don't worry about missing it. I think I want 3 extra PfDs, but I might add a couple more. I've only bought 3 Femme Fatales and 2 EdMs so far this month, so I'm allowed.

    I ordered a few Girly Bits and here they are:

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170704_105924-jpg

    That purple is amazing!

    A few recent manis:

    Emily de Molly Savvy Trinket (favourites list) with Topshop Razzmatazz (2012 untried):

    Glam Polish Witching Hour with Glam Polish Dreamcatcher:

    Max Factor Graffiti (2012 untried) with Glam Polish Homicidal Tendencies:

    My current mani is Polished for Days Eskimo Kisses with Glam Polish The Dark Crystal. Yes, it's been a Glam week, lol. I try to wear untrieds from brands I have most polishes from and also from brands I have the most untrieds from. Glam fits both categories. I am moving onto other brands after this though.

    Yellow nail polish follow-up: I ordered and just got Zoya Pippa. It's definitely much more like what I was looking for in a yellow!

    This is very pretty!
    That's a pity, never mind, I should really stop buying these mysteries anyway but you know what would happen if I did!
    I got the FTLOP box and limited myself to 2 extras.

    Glad you found something that works for you! It looks nice and summery, and you have a good skintone to carry it off.

    Saw it, but didn't want anything. I have most of them anyway, and still don't want the cremes. Considered Once Upon a Cloud, but decided against it in the end.

    Yeah, I will buy this year's mysteries and then no more. Don't care what theme she announces next year. Fed up with mysteries.

    My latest few manis. Haven't done anything special, I've had the week from hell and I'm exhausted.

    First one is Femme Fatale Crystal Droplets:

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170707_103718-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170707_103746-jpg

    Next is Femme Fatale Twinkling Eve with Lilypad Lacquer Insatiable:

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170709_160418-jpg

    Dance Legend Milky Way with Polished for Days 2016. Loved this one so much!

    Thank you!
    I'm thinking the same thing myself, mysteries suck!
    If they're awesome they're usually available not too expensive somewhere. I can't afford to be buying stuff I hate, but I'm sticking with this year because there are some fab things I hope she does. Everything so far has been drab, colourless, bland... I didn't know she'd done so many rubbish colours in the past!

    All lovely! Milky Way is a particular favourite - but I'm drawn to that green, which isn't my usual colour at all, and I don't think I have it (though I have one of her Oops colours which looks incredibly similar!).
    Sorry you've had a bad week, hope the next one is better.

    My last two manis are quite similar. I started with my first ever duochrome, one of the Special FX chameleons:
    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-sfx-pink-chameleion-2-jpgNail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-sfx-pink-chameleon-1-jpg

    I do love it though! I had to thin it, which worked well, and I thought this would be the end of the bottle, but I think there's another mani left in it!
    (Pardon the pink around every single nail, my new hair dye was a bit... challenging!)
    Then I broke a nail (booooooo)...

    So I went to Enchanted Polish Congratulations:

    I adore this one too! It just feels really classy when you put it on, and it's a pretty holo with obvious shift, and more colours than the SFX. I don't know what Chelsea does with her formula, but I always feel like I'm wearing something well made and elegant when I put on EPs.

    If they're awesome they're usually available not too expensive somewhere.

I didn't know she'd done so many rubbish colours in the past!
    Hahaha, you're funny! Hopefully the next 6 will be amazing. I do like some of them, they're just not what I was hoping for.

    Sorry you've had a bad week, hope the next one is better.
    Thanks. Yes, I think the Oops is pretty much the same.

    Thank you. Here's hoping.

    I do love it though! I had to thin it, which worked well, and I thought this would be the end of the bottle, but I think there's another mani left in it!
    (Pardon the pink around every single nail, my new hair dye was a bit... challenging!)
    Then I broke a nail (booooooo)...

    I like them both. I haven't worn Congratulations yet (4 years on), that whole collection is so pretty though, I have Kids on my must wear soon list.

    Ooh, what colour is your hair?

    It's much brighter in sunlight... it's called Red Rose, I've nicknamed it Electric Beetroot!

    Cool! And nice to finally put a face to the name (or half a face, lol). Hey, you might be the person who can help me with this, do you know where one can find blue hair dye that isn't very temporary? My eldest wants blue hair now that GCSEs are over, but the only ones we've found are the ones you wash out in a few washes. There must be some more permanent ones! I don't want to re-colour his hair every week!

    Thanks! Was trying to showcase the hair, not the face!
    I'm really not an expert, bright hair is new to me. And I've only gone pink, never tried blue.
    However, this is the third pink I've tried, the first two only lasted one wash each and were Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL (it stayed on the top of my head for three washes, but the length vanished in one) and Paintglow Rebellious Colours (I only did the long part, Schwarzkopf was still showing on the top) - they were very nice, but I wanted to try to find something that would last longer too.
    This one has been washed once and it doesn't look like it's going anywhere - the brand is La Riche Directions. Can't promise the blues will be the same though, and I think a lot depends on your hair chemistry but I've been researching and I've read a few other people saying it lasts a while.
    I got mine on Amazon.

    Yes, we've tried the Schwarzkopf one and it's crap. It didn't even really show straight after colouring! We also used the purple one on my daughter last Christmas, her hair is actually pretty light originally and it was still very meh and washed out almost straight away. Except for a few pink streaks at the bottom for which she got into trouble at school. She now has black hair and that's okay because it's a natural hair colour. Honestly....

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've also asked in one of the Facebook groups I'm in and that was one of the suggestions, the others were SFX and Pravana. But I think we also need to get his hair bleached first, although he doesn't want very bright blue, I think it would help with the tone as the yellow in his hair makes it look more green.

    I keep thinking you look so familiar, but it's very doubtful we've ever met in real life. I guess you look like someone I know, but no idea who, lol!

    Looking good Anneri!

    Thanks for the suggestion. A lady in one of my Facebook groups has sent us her spare bottle of Special Effects Blue Velvet colour, so we're trying that one out for now. He's having his hair bleached tomorrow (by the hairdresser, I don't want to mess it up), then I'll colour it for him.

    Hair twins! Looks good on you, and I agree, it's nice to put a face to the posts!
