    My current mani is Illyrian Polish Unicorn Spell with Fair Maiden Hemera. I really love this one. The Illyrian had been on my list to wear for a while, it's so pretty, and so is the Fair Maiden.

    I've been really good, haven't bought anything lately. I have a good few polishes at Stackry and 12 Femme Fatales as part of the UK group buy, but those won't be here until next week. My credit card balance is humongous this month with my daughter's birthday, start of school and other necessary purchases (and my washing machine needed fixing).
    Some pretty colours there, I love Unicorn Spell!

    Well done on restraining the polish shopping - are you going for the Glam Halloweens again? I've been drooling over the swatches, I think I might need some... my Glam addiction is out of control!

    That's the norm for me unfortunately. Some polishes last better, but most start chipping on day 2. Must be my nails / body chemistry. Oh well, at least that encourages me to use my polishes, I have about 3,500 untrieds to get through!

    Are you in the Illyrian fan group? She's just released 3 group exclusives and one is an almost dupe for Unicorn Spell if you're interested. Looks very pretty. And yes, I have ordered it.

    I like the look of some of the Glams, but to be honest I haven't even used ANY of the last year's Horror Shop release polishes. But there are a few I'd like and also 3 of the Polish Con ones (if they'll be available from the shop after PC) and 5 of the Beetlejuice ones. So I'll try to be good.

    Once again been spending a lot of money elsewhere, my eldest son and my daughter both wanted to go to some concerts coming up in the next few months, so I've spent a lot on tickets and also a couple of meet and greet packages. I've lost count now how much I've spent, but it's near £500 I reckon. So not much (any?) left for polish again.

    Although I haven't bought anything for 3 weeks, I have received two lots of polishes this week, one from the bi-monthly FF group buy and the other from Stackry.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170922_130612-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170922_101058-jpg

    Actually, I did buy something. I got these holo polishes from Kiko the other day.

    There were 3 other ones, silver, gold and dark grey.

    It's pretty. I don't have this one.
    Sadly I'm not in the Illyrian group, but I don't have spare cash to buy anyway if I'm getting Glams. I did succumb to the C4N 30% discount last night and bought a few Illyrians, couple of Tonics and an EdM, so I've been naughty!
    Argh, don't you hate it when you can't buy everything???

    These are all really sweet too - the Girly Bits stands out to me. I think the only one I own is Entrance, which I loved when I wore it, looks great on you too.

    Yeah, I ended up buying from C4N too. But 30% was too good to leave. I ended up getting 10 polishes. Oops.

    Thank you! Which Illyrians did you order? I've not been disappointed in Illyrian lately. Some of the older ones I have are a bit hit and miss, but these new ones are amazing.

    I know, 30% was too good to miss! I wanted Tonic's Toxic too, but it was sold out while I was thinking about it. The Illyrians are:
    Illyrian Polish Butterflies
    Illyrian Polish Enigma (August COTM)
    Illyrian Polish Hex
    Illyrian Polish Prototype #35
    I could have got so many more, but I trimmed loads because... Glams next week!

    I'm going to skip the Glams altogether this month. I've spend far too much on polishes again, as well as the 10 from C4N I also got 9 Tonics last night, plus 3 from Glitter Daze and 3 from Illyrian earlier this week. So I simply don't have any money left for Glams. Also the Halloween Horror Shop ones just look a bit too samey to me. I would've liked 3 from the Polish Con leftovers and 5 Bettlejuices, but I might be able to order the latter next month anyway. I still want the Indie Galactic box (gorgeous Tonic in it), the new FTLOP box and a couple of new FFs from the October release. And I have a feeling EP will release the mysteries soon. So no Glams.

    In case you haven't got the e-mail, Enchanted restock on Sunday!


    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-screenshot_2017-09-29-16-55-29-png

    Looks like the new monthlies aren't launching (thankfully, for my wallet), but there may be (will be) new surprise colours. I hope I manage to not panic buy and only order if I really like them.

    I'm sitting out the Glam restock as we speak....

    Anne, texted you earlier, not sure if it's gone through. Someone in one of my Facebook groups is selling EP Moon Water for £10 plus pp. If you like, I can buy it for you! (She also has Gummy Worm for £10 if you're interested.) Let me know!

    Well that was an easy pass. The new colours are all dull. Just as well, I didn't have any money to spend on EPs anyway.

    Nice choices, I'd have gone for loads of them too, but I got my Glams instead - got all I wanted this year.
    I love the PfD box, but I've spent too much this month already.

    I wasn't impressed either, one was OK but not good enough to buy on its own. Good news really, money saved!

    No, I got those directly from Illyrian and I'm pretty sure that one sold out quickly.

    Thanks. The C4N order finally came today.

    Well done for getting all the Glams you wanted. I've stayed away from the site and the UK Facebook group, didn't want to be tempted at all. In the end there was one of the horror shop ones that I really liked and I can live without it. I have nearly 400 Glams now and most of them untried. I just can't keep up with her releases anymore when I also want loads from Illyrian, Tonic and Polished for Days.

    Apparently the new colours won't be restocked with the exception of possibly 2, but I really don't care at all. I'll buy the remaining monthlies and then stop buying those as well. Still hoping for Ocean Potion and something very close to December 2012 to make a comeback.

    My C4N order. I'm loving the KBShimmers especially, they're so amazing!

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20171005_114148-jpg

    I've finally got Tonic Poison Rose. I kept passing on it because I wasn't sure it would work with my skintone (still not sure, but it's pretty). Taking on Toronto is really really gorgeous, much nicer than the photos show.

    I'll see if I can post a few of my recent manis in a bit. I've been so busy and/or tired, I've not done many interesting manis, but I did do a really nice autumny one (and a failed one, hahaha).

    My failed autumnal nail art. I envisaged the leaves to look different, they were filled in with Bear Pawlish Is It Puce? which is a gorgeous brown to green duochrome, but it doesn't show. And the flakies didn't really go with it either. Meh. The base was Urban Decay Showboat (2011 untried) and the flakies were Indigo Bananas Quantum Gravity. I also mattified it, I think I liked it better matte.

    My good autumnal nail art. A-England Princess Sabra (2012 untried) as base with Lilypad Lacquer Fortune on the accents. The decals were also filled with the Lilypad.

    Next was Lilypad Lacquer Angel's Kiss with Glam Polish Batch #18 . Not really amazing.

    Pahlish Lurline with Illyrian Polish Dream a Little Dream of Me. The Pahlish is pretty, but I've found it very hard to work with. I don't really like their brushes either.

    My current mani (and I love this one!) is Emily de Molly Plan B with Rimmel Sparkle Every Day. The EdM is from my favourites list and it is beautiful!

    Thanks. The C4N order finally came today.

    Well done for getting all the Glams you wanted. I've stayed away from the site and the UK Facebook group, didn't want to be tempted at all. In the end there was one of the horror shop ones that I really liked and I can live without it. I have nearly 400 Glams now and most of them untried. I just can't keep up with her releases anymore when I also want loads from Illyrian, Tonic and Polished for Days.



    Apparently the new colours won't be restocked with the exception of possibly 2, but I really don't care at all. I'll buy the remaining monthlies and then stop buying those as well. Still hoping for Ocean Potion and something very close to December 2012 to make a comeback.
    Thanks, I suspected that was the case with the Illyrian. Well done on avoiding Glams - I agree, there are FAR too many releases, but they're my current weakness, I just can't help falling in love with so many of them. It's gutting that I miss out on so many other things though, but money is tight and I'm trying not to go too far over my limits.
    I hope the last few EP throwbacks are better than what's been offered so far, I keep thinking I should stop buying them, but that will be when the amazing ones come out of course. Hopefully a bit of a break before the next ones though, I can definitely wait!

    I've finally got Tonic Poison Rose. I kept passing on it because I wasn't sure it would work with my skintone (still not sure, but it's pretty). Taking on Toronto is really really gorgeous, much nicer than the photos show.

    I'll see if I can post a few of my recent manis in a bit. I've been so busy and/or tired, I've not done many interesting manis, but I did do a really nice autumny one (and a failed one, hahaha).
    Oo, nice use of your discount! I agree, the KBShimmers really stand out in this pic - I haven't bought anything from them for ages, but these are cute!

I also mattified it, I think I liked it better matte.

    My good autumnal nail art. A-England Princess Sabra (2012 untried) as base with Lilypad Lacquer Fortune on the accents. The decals were also filled with the Lilypad.

    Next was Lilypad Lacquer Angel's Kiss with Glam Polish Batch #18 . Not really amazing.

    These are sweet - I don't think it was too bad a failure, though the other one is much nicer (love the A England!).

    These are very classy! I couldn't get away with anything as pale as the EdM, but it looks lovely. I'm very taken with both polishes in your purple mani though!

    My last two manis:

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-regents-park-road-3-jpg
    Nails Inc Regents Park Road - I'm so let down by this one. It's a nice colour, and I was so happy when I got it (admittedly a long time ago!!!) but it's way too sheer - this took 5 coats! I have similar which work with 3 so not impressed.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-test-batch-boy-lived-pahlish-3-jpg
    Pahlish Test Batch The Boy Who Lived. This on the other hand was gorgeous! I have the non-test version as well, which is slightly different, looking forward to seeing how it looks too!

    I'm actually a bit over Glam nowadays. I find Rachel's attitude a bit condescending, but mostly the polishes don't look that interesting to me anymore. I still want 5 of the Beetlejuices and I did look last night and some of the Polish Con leftovers are still in stock, so I might order from the Aus website next month, but we'll see.

    No, I'm not in a rush for EP to launch the new monthlies either. Or anything else for that matter.

    Thanks. I really liked the KBShimmer summer collection. There was a blackened blue duochrome that I also liked, but it wasn't in stock. She's got a whole new big fall collection coming out and there are some more with this finish, a really nice bright blue one in particular.

    Thanks. It was a failure to me because I envisaged it completely differently. It was okay for 2 days though.

    Thanks. I thought you would! They looked very nice, the Pahlish was very shiny. I just adore that EdM and is was suprisingly easy to apply and looked great for such a pastel colour.

    These are pretty. I think I have the Nails Inc too. Aah, that Pahlish is lovely! That's another brand I feel very overwhelmed with. I always see the announcements about restocks, but there are too many, samples, test batches, bespoke batches, etc., I can't keep up. And then don't order anything.

    I've managed to sell some polishes and make up, so had a bit of cash to indulge. Ordered 3 Different Dimensions, 3 polishes from the Polish Pickup shop and the FTLOP box. Been looking at the new Chaos & Crocodiles, there's a couple of polishes I really like. I probably shouldn't though, sigh.

    Here are a few of my recent manis:

    Glam Polish The Mountain and the Viper with Alchemy Lacquers Calypso

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20171006_101312-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20171006_101344-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20171006_101359-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20171006_101655-jpg

    Enchanted Polish Awesomeness with El Corazon Amethyst: Well this was weird. I did my mani at night, applied topcoat, and in the morning the EP looked completely different! In my pictures it looks a bit too blue, but it was definitely not like it was before the topcoat. I added another coat the next night and didn't put topcoat on it, so that's what you can see in the last 2 pictures. I don't think it was my topcoat, because I use it all the time and it doesn't change other polishes (except one Lilypad it's happened to too, that was purple as well). Anyhow, I loved this mani and Awesomeness is gorgeous, but I actually preferred the El Corazon. (Ps. someone is selling a BNIB Awesomeness in the EP group on Facebook for around $130! Definitely not worth that much.)
