    Very nice! Sorry to hear about the tipwear.

    I'm just waiting for the Tonic restock, I want to get the new releases especially the Black Hearted Beauties custom. Hoping the package will make it to Stackry before I have to empty it (in just under 4 weeks).
    Hope that works out for you!

    If I'd seen these in advance I'd probably have bought them, but no regrets on skipping now. She should reconsider the whole mystery thing, I reckon she'd sell more. Mind you, doesn't sound like she wants to from her last email.

    Really happy with this one - it's been lurking around calling my name for a while, finally got round to it!

    I honestly don't think I would've bought them even if I'd seen them in advance. They're a dark purple and dark green. I'm sure that Glam Polish / Cupcake / CbL, etc. have come out with similar colours. Meh.

    There was a secret restock for Shrimp Cocktail and few others overnight. She kept restocking them, so if you're interested, keep an eye on the shop, she might do it again.

    I personally can't be bothered. I don't have Shrimp, but it's not worth the hassle and nearly $20

    Well it looks like she didn't bother with restocking again for the European fans. I hope this won't become a regular occurrence, because if I miss out on Ocean Potion or a December 2012 dupe, I will be very very cross.

    Anyway.... I have some nail mail! Femme Fatale bi-monthly UK group buy:

    I've been a bit naughty this month, bought 5 Tonics (plus 2 toppers for free shipping), 9 polishes from the Polish Pickup and Hypnotic Polish had a sale, so ended up buying 10 polishes from them. And someone was selling 2016 mystery EPs for £5 each, so I bought February, May and June. Oops.

    Every time I peek in here you ladies are asking about the EPs {okay I get notifications}. I don't own a single one because they used to be impossible to get so I stopped checking the website years ago. I have been very bad with the polish buying lately. Polish Pickup is a killer for me... Also I have gotten really dedicated to certain brands and regret skipping them when I do. Not as frequently mentioned anywhere so I consider Contrary Polish one of the most under rated polishes out there. Great Lakes Lacquer is another I regret when I skip. I only do one mystery polish and that is Baroness X. My favorite Glam polish is the Butterflies one. Some pictures and what they are as best as I can remember: Contrary The Lady is a Vamp with OPI Piroutte my Whistle on accent, EdM Over the Edge, Baroness X Silence Boy with Glam Butterflies on accent, Contrary Bauble, and CBL As Rome Burned

    I think most of us now have a love/hate relationship with EP, although for me it's turned into more of a can't be bothered one.

    Polish Pickup is an amazing concept with so many great makers and nice polishes. I usually manage to only buy 3-4, but this month I bought 9.

    I have 2 Contrary Polishes (and sold one) and to be honest I find them dull. But each to their own. GLL is nice, but I only own a few. I try to stick with certain brands, but sometimes a unique polish just has to be bought, regardless of the brand!

    Nice manis!

    Manis! First one is Femme Fatale Snow White (thermal) with Femme Fatale Golden Age. It had to be, we had snow!

    Next is Models Own Indian Ocean (2012 untried). It's very sheer, so I thought I'd use it over black for a cool multichrome, but it's just meh.

    Colors by Llarowe Her Red Hair (holo) with Glitter Daze The Red Witch. I liked this one, but it did chip rather quickly. So a bit meh.

    My current mani is Tonic Polish Toxic with Alchemy Lacquers Cupid. Definitely my favourite of the bunch. Toxic was the first Tonic I saw and loved and AL Cupid is so pretty too.

    thanks for the compliment on my manis--I am a bit insecure about my hands because I suffer from eczema. I appreciate the kind words.

    I love the Glitter Daze in yours tho I see why the purple manicure is a favorite--so eye catching!

    I own 2 Femme Fatales and hope to explore the brand a bit more.

    I am afraid I wear a LOT of red because it is my husbands favorite. If he had his way I would wear nothing else so maybe that is why I like the Contraries--to me they are like Chanels with the secret shimmers. They pass as "normal" but have a bit of interest if you look closely {or the sun hits them just right}. To be totally honest I like to swatch other colors but I don't really wear them for full on manicures. And I also tend to get tired after a day or two and layer another color over or just redo my manicures. Which is okay since I am an Admin so type quite a bit. I get tip wear within a day!!!

    Whoever came up with the idea of Polish Pickup is a genius. And the only other group thing I am looking forward to is The Color Box. I am afraid it has died without ever putting out a red box. Now that is one I could have bought with the husband's approval

    Love the look of your haul, a good variety of colours there. I've been fancying a few EdMs myself recently.
    Glad you got your Tonics! I wasn't feeling PPU this month, managed not to buy any. I saw the HP sale too, but again nothing I couldn't live without.
    Hope you like the 2016 EPs, I've never once regretted skipping that year though.

    Hiya! You must think we have an unhealthy EP obsession, I think it breeds that, and you should think yourself lucky you never got sucked into the whole thing.
    How funny that you mention Contrary and Great Lakes, they were the two PPU polishes I bought from the previous restock! I only have one or two of each, but I loved the colours. I've been looking at Baroness X for a couple of years, but I still haven't bought any (though I think I have one from a For The Love of Polish box).
    Your manis are lovely, you've made me want to wear my EdM reds soon!

    That FF thermal is impressive (but I really don't like the colour when it goes buttercreamy - sorry!).
    Sad to hear that Indian Ocean is disappointing, I do have it too as yet unworn.
    You know I love that red mani, two polishes I don't own, and I'm especially taken with the Glitter Daze one.
    Glad you love BW, it looks fab in your pics!
    And Toxic.... I'm so glad I bought this recently, it's a stunning shade of purple.

    Your hands look fine in your pics! My nails grow wonky because of a medical issue too, I pretend they're perfect and cover them in sparkles!
    I love a good red polish, though I do like some interest to it! Someone once told me I should only ever wear red polish - not possible, there are hundreds (under-exaggerating here) of other polishes in my drawers that I'd be devastated never to wear!!!

    The Nails Inc is an interesting colour. And yes, microglitter is just great. That's a really pretty colour too!

    I wasn't that crazy about the 2016 polishes, but since they were only £5 each and they were the nicest ones from the year, I thought why not. (I will post a picture later.)

    Haha, that's okay! It was actually more yellow than buttercream and it has blue shimmer, but it's hard to photograph.

    Thank you. And yes, Toxic is amazing.

And I also tend to get tired after a day or two and layer another color over or just redo my manicures. Which is okay since I am an Admin so type quite a bit. I get tip wear within a day!!!

    Whoever came up with the idea of Polish Pickup is a genius. And the only other group thing I am looking forward to is The Color Box. I am afraid it has died without ever putting out a red box. Now that is one I could have bought with the husband's approval
    Thank you!

    I'm not a huge red fan, but I do like the more pinky/burgundy reds.

    Luckily I don't have anyone telling me what colours to wear, I ditched the husband 2 years ago, hahaha!

    I'm quite happy I'm not that keen on the April Polish Pickup reveals so far, I may even be able to stick with only 3-4 polishes next month! I thought I'd be more tempted because of the space theme, but no.

    Ha! I still have a husband and he gets no say in my makeup/nail polish affairs. I'm always shocked when I see on the polish threads women posting that their husbands said they could order this polish or that.

    I may be guilty of that one tho I am not sure I have used could order as in I needed permissions. BUT I personally do not see a point in wearing a color my partner finds ugly on the regular. Like if your husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/triage or whatever was repulsed by green lipstick would you wear it all the time? Sure maybe once in a while but not the most often purchased and worn color....

    I did have a friend who was baby mad. I mean she had a child and when I was pregnant with my third kept sighing and saying she wished she could have another but her husband would not allow it. Relatively speaking a partner saying I really don't like brown nail polish or black lipstick is nothing and I always take it into account. Tho of course I still buy a color if I find it beautiful. Not sure if this makes sense. The sparkle and shine of a color dims a bit when you know your partner finds it unattractive so although I still purchase said colors they are purchased far less often and worn very rarely

    Smitten Polish Glacial Springs (this is ultra sparkly in real life, it's been ages since I wore a microglitter - still love them!)

    sparkly! I like micro glitters and glitters as well although if they are super glittery they are too difficult for me to remove. Not literally difficult but I am always imagining scratching my nails and damaging them when I get to scraping off the last few strays. Smitten Polish, if it is the same one that was rebranded as dreamland, is a local gal. I used to follow her blog during the Nerd Lacquer craze. Probably the only reason I own nerds! Her polishes are really nice. I don't own a ton of them but a half dozen or so with eyes on more. Either way a really pretty color. It looks calming despite all the flash going on :-)

    Yes, that makes perfect sense. And everyone's relationship works differently.

    Not me. I've already spent more than I should've this month. I bought 8 Oops polishes from Femme Fatale that were not budgeted for, plus 5 Emily de Mollys from C4N because they have some exclusives. I still want some Different Dimensions that are only around in March and contemplating getting the Girly Bits cotm polishes. I'm selling some make up on eBay and the listings are finishing tonight, so we'll see how much money I'll have to spend.

    I've just seen that Tonic is the guest maker in next month's FTLOP box (again), so I'll probably want that, and I'll pick up a few of the new Polished for Days releases at the same time.

    Here are my hauls. First up the 2016 EPs. I think these were the best ones that year and at £5 a pop I'm pretty happy with them.

    Also got my package from Hypnotic Polish. I really love the Illyrians, but all in all, I'm very happy with everything. The Bows are magnetic multichrome polishes, obviously the rage at the moment (together with the return of the mysteriously elusive, but not really UP).

    And here are my recent manis, first up is Polished by KPT Audrey with Sally Hansen Lady Luck (2012 untried).

    Next is Chaos & Crocodiles Narwhal Does the Hula with Glam Polish Would You Believe? I love the C&C and Would You Believe? was my first ever Glam! It's still in the older style bottle with the sideways writing and purple letters.

    Another Femme Fatale thermal while it's still cold (we have snow again today!), Eliza - I love this one!

    My current mani is Glam Polish Fruit of the Poisonous Tree with Lilypad Lacquer Fire Queen. I added the decal for a Tonic group contest, but it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped (supposed to be daffodils).

    I just finished cataloging all my polishes in an excel mainly because of brands like Tonic where I freak out with a do I have it on the back from the vaults. This way I can just peek at my spreadsheet and figure it out. This is in part because I talk myself out of releases and have parted with some colors that I don't particularly love on me.

    Well that is not the only brand.

    I have decided I have too many polishes but am still eying the newer colors, and the upcoming release. I am really wanting to limit myself with PPU but other than entirely skipping the month the best I have done is 4 polishes. I regularly insta buy reds because my husband likes red and I do look great in them but, as we all know, reds are not exactly exciting. Variety saves my sanity in the red department. And speaking of reds I have some on my to find list ==I swear I am a mess when it comes to polishes. Way more than I ever was with make-up in general

    I love my spreadsheet, I don't know what I'd do without it. While I'm not too bad at remembering whether I own a polish or not, I would never remember which ones I've used and wouldn't know how to choose.

    Thanks. I used to buy loads of ILNPs, but I haven't really bought many lately. I think the fact that they're not LE works against her because they're always pushed to the back of my wishlist. However, I needed more polishes for the reduced shipping (and it was 10% off), so I added these.

    Thank you! It was more green in real life, but my camera insisted otherwise...
    Smitten did rebrand to Dreamland, and I do like a lot of their polishes! Nice to have them down the road.

    I really wanted almost all the P4Ds, was planning to pick them up at Harlow and co, which was much the cheapest option, but I had to wait a couple of days to pay for them and most of them sold out. If I want the FTLOP box this time, I'll get them then, otherwise I'm holding off. The Illyrians are pretty, but again will have to wait.
