    Speaking of other brands, my Girly Bits order arrived in no time. They're all so pretty as well.

    I totally agree about the new way she's releasing - I'd rather have 20 once every 2 months, than 3 every week.

    I was wondering about Gaia, it's my least favourite of the 3. I also like the HHC exclusive one, but not sure if I'll buy it. I hardly buy from HHC nowadays, always talk myself out for some reason.

    Did you buy anything in the end?

    I ended up getting just the single one I planned to. They were all there but I was restrained for once.

    It's taken me all week to get round to sorting this week's mani pics out! Polished for Days Light up the Darkness:

    Thanks for this one Anita, I love it! It's got shimmer and multichrome and holo and flakies and all kinds of goodness...
    But it's very harmonious for all that. Not sure why the last two pics decided to rotate all by themselves...

    love that cool toned lilac/pink (on my monitor). I don't have many girly bits. Maybe I even have none but you recommend the formula?

    ARGH never mind! I spent 2 days--TWO WHOLE DAYS--looking for a particular polish for my manicure and am feeling as I have way too too many. I am thinking of doing a huge purge or something. And I keep saying that and not doing it because polish is pretty
    Low Buy 2018!

    Well done! I'm resisting Hecate. Wish it had sold out already. But I'm going to remain strong, it would cost me about $18 with shipping and fees. I'm talking myself out of the HHC one too, PfD is releasing one that looks quite similar. Need to save up for EdM and Tonic and PPU as by the looks of it, I'm going to want a good few in June.

    Oh yes, absolutely! Girly Bits is one of my favourite brands, I've been buying them since 2013. And Pam, the maker is really lovely. The one you were referring to is Reveal, it's a thermal UP polish.

    I think we all have way too much polish, it doesn't stop me from buying though!

    Here are a few recent manis. First is Lilypad Lacquer You Got My Attention with Illyrian Polish Morpheus. Absolutely love the Illyrian and the colour of the Lilypad is gorgeous, but I didn't realise it had flakies in it and it just looks weird and bumpy.

    Next is Chanel Tentation with KIKO 261, both 2012 untrieds. Love the Chanel very much.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190508_093653492-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190508_093738592-jpg

    This is Lilypad Lacquer Violet Moon with Polished for Days Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo.

    My current mani is Lilypad Lacquer Tanzanite Twinkle with Tonic Polish Oops! MFA-PI9. I got myself a large magnet that I can rest my finger on instead of hovering over the wet nail and it works really well. Still a bit of a faff, but I'm actually looking forward to using more magnetic polishes now. Also love the flakies in this one.

    I've decided that I'm going to use all the remaining 2012 untrieds in the next few weeks, I think I have about 40 left and I really need the drawer I moved them into, so going forward I will only be using those (and maybe a different polish for the accents if I can't match them up with each other). There are a few nice colours left in there and a few less interesting ones, but I will tackle every single one of them.

    On another note, I went shopping today while my daughter and friend were watching a film (I was taxi), and picked up these polishes in Hema. The pink one says top coat, but it looks pretty opaque to me. They only cost about £1.50 anyway.

    Love these! The first Lilypad purple is beautiful, and Morpheus is lovely. The pinks look great. The blues are pretty, and yay for a working Tonic magnetic!
    Nice mini haul too, I've given those up!

    This is really nice, and has a bit of a purple/pink shimmer going on that's hard to capture.

    Thanks. It wasn't so much that the Tonic magnetics weren't working well, it was partly that I struggled to get them to work and also found that those topcoats were just not that exciting.

    I like picking up cheap polish once in a while, I feel less guilty than when I order $12 bottle ones from the US, hahaha.

    Speaking of which, I ended up ordering the HHC Illyrian and got the DRK magnetic to go with it. Still resisting Hecate though....

    As I said, I'm now using my remaining 2012 untrieds, so here are 3 manis. First up is OPI Sit Under the Apple Tree with Milani Hi-Tech. The OPI was really sheer. It's also a bit more green than my pictures show.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190514_090027832-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190514_090103927-jpg

    Next is Hits Mari Moon Unconventional, over black. My daughter accidentally cut my ring finger nail off, I was holding a branch for her to cut flowers off and she somehow (and I still don't know how) cut into my nail, right at the start of the free edge. Luckily she didn't cut into the live part or my finger, but still...

    My current mani (about to be changed) is Topshop Hidden Treasure (2012 untried) with Lollipop Posse Lacquer Our Lady of the Trees (not 2012 untried). Not very happy with it, they looked closer when I tested them on a nail wheel, also the Lollipop is a bit meh. I do like the Topshop one and it was only 2 coats and no black undie needed.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190519_135635112-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190519_135729593-jpg

    And here's a tiny little haul from a destash:

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190515_143840283-jpg

    On that note, I went a bit crazy and ordered loads from PfD, including the TIS exclusive duo and several from the last 2 collections. I also want a lot from EdM, but I'll need to see if she's offering any discounts, she said it's the anniversary sale, so hoping for a good amount off. I like a lot of the newest collection and several from the past two. Plus apparently there'll be 10 LE's, but she hasn't shown them yet. Oh dear.

    I see Illyrian is doing yet another mystery bag launch this Friday. I don't get it why she can't do one launch every month or so. Also, the mystery bags cost pretty much the same as normal, I'm not forking out $35 or so for 3 unseen polishes. Ugh.

    And Glam Polish is coming out with another big collection. Luckily, I only really like one of the polishes and will probably not bother again.

    Also the colour scheme of the new Femme Fatale collection is greens and browns, so I think I'm safe there too.

    Oh and forgot to ask, did you see the new EP duo? Fire & Ice. It's another hard pass for me.

    I like most of these (not the first OPI green one though!). I'm not a fan of OPI polishes, though I do have a few.
    Pretty FF, hope it lives up to the bottle!
    I've been wanting some PfDs for a while, but I'm still on my alleged no buy kick, I seldom resist everything, but so far I have held off on PfD. EdM have had some stunners recently, very tempted too but again can't afford for now.

    And Glam Polish is coming out with another big collection. Luckily, I only really like one of the polishes and will probably not bother again.

    Also the colour scheme of the new Femme Fatale collection is greens and browns, so I think I'm safe there too.

    Oh and forgot to ask, did you see the new EP duo? Fire & Ice. It's another hard pass for me.
    Oh FFS, I can't do all these mystery polishes either, and it's not cheap to ship either. Grrr, I'm out I guess (unless I fail to resist again, they are at least my current favourite brand!). Depressingly, I like a load of Glams, I've skipped loads too, but it's scary expensive to get the lot, so not sure what I'll do, probably wait again. Unless I don't.
    The EPs were an easy skip, not my colours at all. I think I'm finally over them!

    This week I'm wearing MUA 14 (a nice metallic red) completely swamped by Indigo Bananas SF25+ holo topcoat. It's more murky pink now!

    I used the MUA loads in my pre-indie days, and I thought one more mani would finish it. It didn't...
    And I reckon the topper is quite good, but not on such a saturated colour. Must try to remember to go paler next time!

    I do like some of the new Glams, but I feel they're all a bit samey now, and I would rather spend my money elsewhere seeing that I can't buy everything. EdM and PfD are definitely in my top 5 right now, so my money is going there instead. They also offer free shipping which Glam doesn't and their shipping really adds up, whether to my US postbox or through the UK store.

    Yeah, I definitely think I'm over EP.

    This looks cool, but I see what you mean, it doesn't really look red. I also have that topcoat and another one from IB, plus probably another 5 holo topcoats, hahaha. Don't use them at all often though.

    Since I have 2 minutes to myself, here's my current mani: China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes topped with Inglot 302 and Femme Fatale Crown of Ribbons. The China Glaze and Inglot were my 2012 untrieds. The Inglot is a very sheer pink topper with green to blue shimmer. The FF is actually quite opaque and doesn't look very different despite being on top of a very bright neon pink.

    My Illyrian package arrived at Stackry yesterday, minus Open the Gate, but I see that the pigment should be with Vanessa soon, so hopefully they'll be able to send it out before my box needs emptying. Not too thrilled about the extra $2 consolidation charge, but I figured it's best to ensure I get the rest rather than have to wait ages for them and OTG.

    I have all four IB SF topcoats, but I didn't feel the need to buy any more than that! This is the first time I've used one.

    Can't say I'm sold on this one I'm afraid, though the shimmer looks quite cool in the shade shot.

    Mine arrived at home yesterday, she's going to have to shell out for international shipping to get OTG to me. If she did order combining, she could put it in with my other proto coming to Stackry soon, but since she can't be bothered and doesn't answer emails, she'll just have to send it to the UK! There are a couple of the re-releases for tonight I fancy, so I'll give it a go to get them, and if I do I'll add the mystery bag. I'm so bored with not shopping, I had to re-think. I'm expecting a temporary pay rise next month, got an email confirming it today, so I also celebrated with a small Harlow order for PfDs, she offered me a 10% discount, and I still got free shipping, so what the hell!
    I'm pretty sure I'll be going for a few of the Glams I want as well. I'm rubbish at resistance. It feels like forever since the dental stuff curtailed me.
