    Erm, yes, clearly my cutting back didn't go very well, hahaha! Hoping to do better this month, PPU is a rewind month, so there shouldn't be (m)any polishes that I'll want as I usually buy the ones I really like. Also Tonic is launching another collection, but keeping everything in stock for at least another month, so I can wait until July to purchase. I do want a lot of them, so will try to save up.

    That is poor. Especially as they refunded me another $3.50, so all in all I got $33 off for 2 polishes!

    I haven't seen the EPs, to be honest I haven't seen any of this year's mysteries except the first couple which failed to impress me.
    The PfDs are all stunning. She is really on top of her game at the moment. I buy almost every PPU shade as well as the FTLOP ones too (although I did pass on the last one). I also got the Quixotic part of her TIS duo and it's amazing too.

    I have actually seen the mystery bag polishes, someone in the Illyrian group sent them to me. Will be interested to hear what you think.

    I can upload pictures of the EP mysteries, one is green and one is light pink. I think March and April were orange and purple? I'll see if I can find pictures.

    I have loads of manis to share, but I'm so behind with cropping my pictures. Anyway, I will share a few for now.

    First up is actually my pedi, Marks & Spencer Purple Rain (2012 untried). It's more purple than the picture shows and really sparkly. Mind you, in this weather we've been having, my toes haven't see the daylight since I took the pictures!

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190602_140210040-jpg

    My first mani is OPI Clubbing Til Sunrise (2012 untried) with Emily de Molly Copper Field.

    Next is Color Club Wing Fling (2012 untried) with Emily de Molly The Unloved.

    This one is Nails Inc Regent's Park Road (2012 untried) with Emily de Molly Oceanic Forces. I sat down and looked through my older EdMs as I needed glitter toppers for these and EdM used to make loads. I still haven't used Cosmic Forces and Dark Forces, and they are all from 2013.

    Next is A-England Tristam (2012 untried) with Girly Bits Lost in the PATH. It was very hard to capture the amazing shimmer in the Girly Bits, so I took one with a different setting that makes my hand look orange, but shows off shimmer.

    I'll be back with more once I've managed to crop my pictures. I just never seem to have the time nowadays.

    Oh, and before I forget, here are the EPs from March to June.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-ep-march-april-19-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-ep-march-april-19-1-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-ep-june-19-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-ep-june-19-1-jpg

    They're nice (well, June is meh), but not $18 nice. I'd rather buy 1.5 EdMs or PfDs or Tonics for that money. And they'll be more interesting. And better customer service. I have so many reasons why not to buy EP, hahaha!

    Love your pedi - and that pink mani is utterly gorgeous!
    I wore Oceanic Forces ages ago, and i think it got more positive comments from complete strangers than any other polish I have worn! I did take quite a lot of time working on the sequins in it to get good coverage and make sure they showed up nicely, rather than being all bumpy underneath loads of polish. I have the pink one unworn, but I skipped the black one.

    I really like March and April, but I doubt they'd be unique in my stash, and I agree re pricing - I'm happier buying Illyrians and paying UK postage for that money, let alone PfDs from Harlow with free shipping. I'd definitely wear them though! (But who knows when lol)

    Thank you!

    I think the trick with Oceanic Forces is to use it over a similar colour. I only did 2 coats over the Nails Inc and it worked well. It wasn't bumpy at all.

    I really like March and April too, but can't be bothered to hunt them down. There were a few from last year I liked too, but just couldn't be bothered with buying off people. Not that I've seen many for sale, I think the amount of people buying them must be very small, most comments I see in the groups is that people don't want to pay all this money for mysteries. I haven't even bought non mysteries from her in ages!

    Ooh, I quite like the new Glam collection, the first one in ages to really catch my eye! I'm thinking I'll probably place an order this time, planning on getting the purples, one (or both?) pinks, the teal and *maybe* the blue one.

    Anne, could you please give me your list of recent Glam purchases? I'm having trouble remembering now what polishes you bought that I was interested in. My last order was from November 2018 and I got these 6, so pretty much anything after these would be great. I want to see if there's anything left that I wanted, but you didn't get, so I can add them to my order. Thanks.

    I got these last time:
    Imperdimental
    Your Worst Dream Come True
    Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go
    Azkaban
    Wizarding War
    The Elder Wand

    Few more mani pictures. First up is Ozotic 531 (2012 untried) with Blush Lacquers Frosted Foliage (over black).

    Next is Zoya Meg (2012 untried) with Glam Polish Patty O'Green.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190613_095320596-jpg Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-img_20190613_095351093-jpg

    This one is Urban Decay Fishnet (2012 untried) with Enchanted Polish Flamingo Freckles. The UD was supposed to be purple, it has obviously faded, but weirdly it's also really different from the colour in the bottle. It looks like a bright magenta, but then applies much more reddish. Very odd.

    Last one is Primark Blue with Zoya Feifei, both 2012 untrieds.

    I'm not sold on the latest Glams, which is a financial good thing! A few are cute, but I won't be ordering.
    These are the items from my most recent deliveries (some are old polishes though!) - the order before this was the Halloween Horror Shop stuff, so I'm guessing you're covered for those:

    Heart Shaped Box
    The Elder Wand
    Heartbreak Hotel
    W,I.C.C.A.
    Half Witch, Half Mortal
    Mother of Demons
    Let Water Wash The Hex Away
    Me Party!

    These are due in July:
    I'd Rather Be A Mermaid
    Make Waves
    You Rock My Boat!
    GOD OF THUNDER
    KNOWHERE

    Some nice colours there! Oddly, I think my fave is the UD with the unexpected colour!

    Thank you. I will have a look through my list and see if there's anything left that I want to order. If you're interested in any of the new ones, let me know. I haven't decided how many I want, but will probably get 5 or so. The two purples and the teal one are the definites right now.

    Just looking through the lists, which one is Me Party!? Can't find swatches online.

    I was second time lucky with EP Icelandic Sky (the first one I bought went missing thanks to the Royal Fail), bought it in a destash and it came the other day. I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed and quite happy I didn't fork out $16 plus shipping for it.

    Here are a few recent manis, first is Glam Polish Hat Trick with Hits Phenomena Air Glow (2012 untried). The Glam was amazing for a multichrome, almost a one coater (did 2 for good measures).

    Next up is China Glaze Tempest (2012 untried) with Pahlish Glowing Medusa.

    This is Topshop Mermaid (2012 untried) with Tonic Polish Mr. Bingle. I really like the Tonic, it's such a cool and unique polish.

    Last one is Sally Hansen Pink Pearl with Illyrian Moonbow (over black). I made a mistake and didn't tick the Sally Hansen off as used, so it turns out I already wore it about 2 years ago as part of my 2011 untried challenge. Quite annoying as it's not even that nice. Not 100% sure about the Illyrian either, it was okay, but a bit underwhelming.

    Sorry to hear you're not thrilled with the EP, I didn't expect it to be so...green!
    Nice manis, I love Glowing Medusa, very nice indeed. I do like the Sally Hansen at the end, even if it is a second go at it! Moonbow's not looking that special though, I totally agree. I didn't buy that one apparently, so yay me! I did however buy most of last night's prototypes. Unbelievably, there are more new colours coming next Friday again, these $18 shipping charges are mounting up, why she can't do them all at once I've no idea. Did you go for Glams?

    Thank you!

    I was wondering if you bought any Illyrians! I did too, got Circus and 3 of the prototypes: Sunkiss, Exoplanet and Mist. I agree, all these new releases are ridiculous. Even US shipping is $5 if you don't hit the free shipping threshold which is difficult with all these smaller frequent releases. I thought about not ordering, but you never know what will come back and I did like the ones I bought. The flakie ones were looking a bit samey to me.

    I was going to ask if you had War Stars and Narrow Sea? They're both coming back to PPU/Illyrian shop and I quite like them, but I passed on them before and I'm still not 100% sure if I should get them.
    I did buy some Glams, I ordered Shell We Dance?, Under My Spell, One Jem Too Many, Rio, Midsummer Night's Madness. Shipping is really putting me off though, I don't like having to pay $11.60 for 5 polishes. I did get a $5 refund as she had a discount going for orders over $50, so that's good at least.

    There is a new Hypnotic exclusive EP coming out that I actually like. Not sure if I'll buy it, maybe if I'm ordering from Hypnotic anyway, but i'm not planning to anytime soon.

    I didn't purchase a few polishes in the hopes of buying them during the following releases to save on shipping, but of course they sold out a day before the next release. These brands are losing money by doing it this way b/c then I'm annoyed and don't purchase anything in the end.

    The last two were Pahlish and Don Deeva. That's why I really appreciate the way Tonic and PFD run their shops. Easier to reach free shipping and easier to get their polishes overall.

    I have War Stars but not Narrow Sea - WS is a very pretty sparkly red/pink glitter. I don't get the hype about Narrow Sea, I always think it looks a bit murky - can't really get a good idea of what it actually is!
    Well done on the Glams, a discount does always help.
    I'm not bothered about the EP, it's OK but I wouldn't buy it.

    Completely agree, and when it's international shipping it's just stupid costs. They're losing a few bucks from me for sure.

    Funnily enough Pahlish is one I've done the same with - the releases have just a couple I want, and it's just too expensive to ship them alone. Then they're gone when the next release comes along. I do have hopes she might bring loads back for Black Friday this year, it's probably the first year I've skipped this many.

    Illyrian Polish Charybdis - I adore this!
