    I agree. Also ILNP. Literally nothing is ever out of stock. Hayley from EdM has offered to hold orders if people don't want to miss out. Yet Illyrian won't even combine within one release.

    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.
    Cool. I might add War Stars to my swap list then. Thinking of buying Narrow Sea when it comes to the shop if there's other stuff to add to it.

    I don't know if I'll buy the EP, I'm certainly not rushing to order asap.

    The Illyrian is very nice! I don't have this one. In fact I don't have any of the 3 you're wearing.

    EdM is quickly moving up my brands list. Illyrian is ridiculous. And Vapid just re-released their Cosmo multichrome collection or whatever it is for a week. Shut it down Friday night and then offered new things on Saturday, no combined orders.

    I think the point of that was that the TAT was 4-6 weeks for the preorder and she didn't have space to store loads of orders for that amount of time to combine with. I can understand that. But when they don't even combine during the same launch, that is ridiculous. Even Tonic do that, but they're often more flexible, and if you place two orders because something didn't appear on the site at the same time with the others, they will always combine.

    I love EdM. It was one of my first indies and I'm still buying loads from her. Love her interaction too, not too cheesy, not too sugary, just right. And some of the group members crack me up. The Tonic group on the other hand has become so full of fangirls, it's sickening.

    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.
    So I finally got my mystery bag polishes! I love one of them (Papillon), like one of them (Caterpillar) and would never have chosen the third (Lepidoptera). Typical "box" really, but normally I'd skip eg FTLOP if those were my reactions to the three polishes, then be sad I'd missed out on the one I love. I hate mystery bags! And boxes. That's what makes PPU so cool, get the ones you want, skip the ones you don't. Oh well, now I'm undecided what to do about the next MB they're releasing. If I was in the US I'd sell Lepidoptera, but I doubt I'd get any takers in the UK.

    Can you take pictures please? The ones I was sent aren't the best. Thanks.

    But yeah, I can totally relate to this. I hate paying almost full price for mystery polishes, chances are, I won't like them all. At least with the FTLOP / Holo Hookup box you know what you're getting. And yes, PPU is great! My only problem with it is that now they have almost 100 makers and I always want loads. Although I'm glad that this month I only want 4. I need to save up for my upcoming huge Tonic order.

    Oops, looks like we've upset Illyrian! Somebody posted a comment asking if it was possible for them not to do weekly/fortnightly restocks and Amy posted a rather snotty reply to it. I also weighed in with pointing out that the free shipping threshold is next to impossible to reach unless you are buying every single new polish every time. So now Amy posted that tomorrow's release is cancelled, but there's no explanation and she even turned off the comments. Oops, lol. I have to say, I really don't like Amy, I think when non-makers are given serious admin roles, it never works. Like Chris Burnes for Tonic. Well anyhow, money saved tomorrow.

    Ugh, well they've rescheduled it for next Friday. Only 3 new colours plus Narrow Sea.

    Polish makers = delicate little flowers! You know I agree about the many releases, but I guess it's up to her how she operates - but how did that work out for EP??? I only really like one of the new trio, so unless there's more available, I'll probably skip this one. And I'm not feeling the next Glam release either, I only like one I've seen so far, and I saw comparisons with a couple I already have, and they're very similar, but I like the older ones a bit more. My polish buying is on hiatus apparently! Though I'm still waiting for 1 Glam and 2 Illyrian deliveries.

    Oh yes, I see what you mean, Papillon is really pretty, but the other two are a bit meh. I think if Lepidoptera had more flakies in it, I'd be more interested.

    Well done on skipping PPU! I bought 4 in the end.

    Apparently there are two new protos coming out on Friday as well as the Indies for Undies duo. They're not forthcoming with information and certainly not properly in advance, are they? But it looks like the fortnightly releases are going to continue. I don't know if I want to order yet, I guess it depends on swatches of the trio and also the prototypes.

    I'm not feeling the Glam release either. The bottle shots had me excited for 3 of them, but the swatches show them to be very busy. Except maybe the pink one, but I'm not going to order just one.

    I'm liking a few new Different Dimensions (and there are 2 I'd been planning on buying for months), so I'll see if I order those instead of the Illyrians. She is having an anniversary sale as well, so that might tempt me.

    Thanks. Some of these old untrieds are a bit boring, but I've decided to wear them all, so I will. I only have 9 left now (plus haven't shown you my last 3 manis), so not long to go. For some reason there were a good few greens and browns in the last lot, just the luck of the draw I think, but it's going to be a bit dull using the last few up.

    There's new PfD duo coming out on Friday, but I need to resist until later. Still trying to figure out what I'm going to order on Friday, Illyrian or Different Dimension, or both. Would be good if they actually provided some details about what's coming out (illyrian) and what discounts there will be available (DD). Ugh.

    Eh, well, I really like the new Illyrians, the protos are really nice and I actually quite like the trio (especially the purple one). So I guess I'll be ordering. Still not sure about what deals Different Dimension will have. You'd think she could post the details of the sale seeing that it's tomorrow...

    Love the PfD duo, hopefully it will be available for a while though. Like some of the Illyrians, but not sure. I'll need to watch the swatching video tomorrow and see what I think. But I'm utterly in love with the Illyrian HHC polish. Do you know if you need to be a member to buy from them? I went on their shop site and I couldn't see anything saying so. If not, I'll be getting it for sure, and probably a few of the new ones too as it will mean starting a new Stackry parcel. So any knowledge on that front would be great! I saw some DDs on the RC email that just came out, loved the blue one if those are the ones you're interested in! I also really liked the Ethereal blue one they're about to release. Doubt I'll get either though.

    You don't have to be a member to order, I've asked. I think I will also get the red Illyrian. I like the Ethereal and maybe the Rouge as well, but I'm not sure if I'll get them.

    I am contemplating a couple of the new DD Deadly Sins polishes, but not really into the blue one. Thinking of the purple and maybe the black one. I also want the pink COTM and 2 or 3 of her older polishes. She still hasn't posted the details and the sale starts at 2 pm (UK time). I would like to be in the first 100 orders as there's a freebie polish I'd like (but probably wouldn't buy otherwise).

    I also need to watch the swatch video, but I really don't like her, ugh. I think I'll get the trio, the turquoise proto, Narrow Sea and the Undies for Indies magnetic topper. I think that might even get me free shipping for a change.

    Forgot to say, PfD is doing a sale, but nothing new is included and I've bought everything I've wanted already, so I think I'll probably wait until Black Friday to order now. (Only 4 months!)

    Brilliant news on HHC, I love Blood Red Opal and I'll definitely try for it (I notice it's capped, and I haven't checked out the release time yet, if it's late night Sunday I may miss it). Thanks for letting me know, I'll have a look at what else they have again, maybe buy a couple of others.
    I do like the purple DD too, but I don't really buy the brand any more as I've found them disappointing in the past. Hope the sale is all you wish for!
    I just watched the Illyrian swatch video, and I don't want many at all - in fact I think maybe just Kaleidoscope. The purple summer rains is very pink in the video, and the blue one is very green! Nice but I'm actually not fussed on it. The same with the paler prototype, and I'm not convinced the magnetic topper will add anything to my collection! But since I'm going to Stackry anyway, I expect I'll get the single one I want.
    PfD sale? Tempting to get the duo and a couple of others, but maybe not, I guess I'll have to think about that one. I did a biggish order for Black Friday, and a Harlow order fairly recently, so I doubt there's much I want that will be discounted. I can't believe it's just 4 months to BF! I should probably wait for that too!

    The HHC sale starts at 5 am, but to be honest, I don't remember anything selling out very quickly. I don't think HHC is that popular, unlike PPU! So if you order first thing on Sunday, you should be fine.

    The DD sale is actually pretty good, 30% off everything, although there's no shipping discount, so that halved my total discount, but it was still pretty good. Plus I managed to order in the first 100 and got the free polish.

    It's funny, Kaleidoscope is the only one I don't want (plus the blue jelly undie). I won't order until Monday though as my credit card billing period restarts after the 14th. Since it's a preorder, it doesn't matter.

    Yeah, nothing new is discounted in the PfD sale. I'll copy what she's posted in the group:

    40% off Discontinuing Polishes.
    30% off 2018 Holiday Collection and Enchanted Forest.
    20% off PFD x Okie, Bows and Rose, Mythological Monsters, 2018 New Years Duo and Autumn Equinox.
    10% off 2019 launches. (Excluding Pixie Hollow, PFD x Okie Sunset Duo, Little Sea Spies and Cuticula.)
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    No Codes needed for % off. Will automatically apply to the individual listings.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Free Domestic Shipping with a $75 order: PFDFREESHIPPING
    $7 off International Shipping with a $75 order: 7OFFSHIPPING
    $15 off International Shipping with a $150 order: 15OFFSHIPPING

    Here are some more manis, first is Glitter Gal Lizard Belly 3D/Holo (2012 untried) with Femme Fatale Crystal Skull. The Glitter Gal wasn't very holo at all. Meh.

    Next is Darling Diva Angel Annie (2012 untried) with Emily de Molly LE49. I really liked both these polishes.

    8 more manis to go. This has felt quite good though, getting through my oldest polishes feels like an achievement. I've also pulled out some oldies from Glam Polish, Femme Fatale, Emily de Molly, Girly Bits, etc.

    What a shame about Lizard Belly, I have it unworn and was actually quite taken with it in the bottle when I bought it.
    Your manis are nice in general, though I don't see any standout individual polishes. I remember how excited I was about Ozotics back when I first started buying indies, but I was never impressed by them IRL. I have most of mine in my untried polishes (not exactly a short list though!). It's great getting through the oldies, I have soooo many that I'm trying to work through, but I'm not even getting close to indies with that, it's all high street, cheapo internet and Nails Inc for me. It's a slow business, but I've made a decision to concentrate more on my favourite brands and that also feels good getting through them! I did spend a good 6 months a few years ago just working through from the oldest ones forward, and I barely made a dent in them - that idea got dumped as I feared I'd never wear any of my expensive indies (unless I lived to be 200!). So well done to you making a good inroad into them!

    Ugh, this is so annoying. I checked the Illyrian shop yesterday and turns out I still don't qualify for free shipping. I'd need to buy another polish! But I don't want the blue undie or Kaleidoscope, and there's nothing else.

    Anne, have you ordered yet? If you didn't want to pay shipping for just one polish, I can add Kaleidoscope to my order and you'd only pay £3 for UK shipping? If you're interested.

    Yeah, I'm only doing this oldies untried challenge for the 2012 polishes. I have about 350 of the 2013 ones and still barely any indies, so it would be very boring.

    Your method sounds good, why save the prettiest polishes and not get to use them in the end? I'm also trying to use polishes from my most favourite brands, based on untried ratios and total number of polishes. I have to admit, I enjoy messing about with my spreadsheet almost as much as I enjoy wearing nail polish.

    Since July 5th, I've purchased more than 85 polishes. How is that possible? What am I doing with my life?!?

    Since you all have so many polishes, what do you do with them once you have tried them?

    Wow, that is good going! Even I have only bought 19 this month!

    If I really don't like a polish, I try to sell it, but I haven't had time to do a destash and it's not easy to sell polishes in the UK, not for a reasonable price anyway. If I like it, I just keep it. Probably won't wear it again for a while (at all? lol), but I wouldn't want to sell something I love.
