Good news on the sale, glad you found a home for it.
49 is not being good!!!
Well, no. Although it's really only 48 as one is a freebie. That's much better, right? :LOL:

I am trying to be better this month. It helps that I don't want any Glams or Femme Fatales, plus I think I'll only get 4 from PPU. Still not sure if I'll get the Illyrian, but probably not. Also passing on the FTLOP box. Got really excited as the theme is Stranger Things, but I don't love any of the 3 polishes. They're all nice, but not that unique or must-have.

I will definitely order from Tonic though, but only getting 10 of the older releases (PC Purples and Matte Brights) and probably the new charity polish (Bella). There'll be a proto mystery bag sale in 2 weeks as well and I want to get free shipping on that order too, so saving up the 4 new ones I like for then.

Also, I've sold some polishes. Not that many and not for much, but it did pay for my Stackry delivery charge at least.

Oh that is very annoying! What value did they mark it down to? That's my problem with ordering directly, I always think I'll stop using my Stackry box (the latest delivery cost me £85 thanks to the rubbish exchange rate), but then I'm worried that I'd be charged all that shipping and customs on top.

I won 3 Different Dimension polishes and asked to have them sent here and for the package to be marked down to $10, really hope she's done that, don't fancy paying customs on my winnings.

Vanessa said that the new releases (early August ones) will be available again at the end of the month, so that's good. Who knows how long her involvement will last though? It's a shame to lose the customer service person, although I can really do without her attitude in the group. Also wasn't that the e-mail they never responded to?
They marked it down to $20 for 5 polishes (one of which was bought for free with my code). I've never had customs with Illyrian before, and most of my orders have come to the UK, so I was a bit shocked.
Congrats on winning freebies, hope they do wind up being free!
Not sure what email you're talking about, must have brain fog!

I liked all the other ones, but that bright pink was so different from the swatches and not in a good way. No, I'm not buying any this time. I only like one anyway, The Lost Princess, so can't be bothered with forking out on shipping. If you do get that, please let me know.
I didn't get that one, sorry - I went with Clock Strikes Midnight and All Magic Comes With A Price. I was also tempted by the periwinkle one (Fairy Godmother maybe?) and the purple Toy Story, but still trying to cut down so I left them. I saw a really nice swatch of FG today though, kind of wishing I'd got it.

Much better, sorry I doubted you...
I do want the PPU Illyrian, but nothing else from them. And I was massively tempted by FTLOP, loved the PfD, liked the GLL, not fussed on the Pahlish, but I think I'm going to skip it.

Oh yes, $20 is way too high nowadays. :(

I meant the customer service e-mail address, didn't you say they never responded to your e-mails?

Meh, it doesn't matter. I might get it later. Or might not. All Magic Comes With a Price is nice, but I'm pretty sure they've come out with several similar shades lately.

If you do get the PPU Illyrian, please let me know. And the FTLOP box. I like the PfD most, but really can't be bothered to buy the whole box or try to find someone that doesn't want the PfD.

Well, Vanessa is at it again. She posted an update saying that some packages that were supposedly dropped off on Friday, weren't actually dropped off until yesterday because apparently she had been waiting for some replacement brushes, even though she (or Amy) said that they're received the brushes already and everything was dropped off on Friday. People were wondering why their tracking hadn't been updating. She said "some details got crossed and a bit of confusion happened". No Vanessa, you lied! Luckily mine arrived at Stackry on Tuesday, because if it hadn't and I had kept thinking it was already on the way, I would've been very annoyed. I'm pretty sure she also said international orders were going out on Monday, but now she's saying they're only being dropped off tonight. What a massive shambles. It's really putting me off ordering from her, it's a shame that her polishes are nice and her prices are pretty reasonable.

I just bought the Illyrian on its own to Stackry. I was going to get it from UK, but shipping wasn't as low as I thought, and I have stuff going to Stackry already, so wth! Which ones are you after?

Oops, how irritating, just be honest! We like what we buy, though we'd rather things were a bit... smoother and faster and cheaper of course! I see that she's now shipping mine "tonight" and it contains Tortuga, so I'm guessing I should get a replacement brush (and gift?) at a later date.
I wish I had this love for a brand that was easier to deal with! I'm really not buying much other than Illyrian these days. I did get a couple of Great Lakes glass polishes as I had the Stackry box open, not sure when they'll ship. And there are a couple of Pahlishes I fancy, but I've held off (I was going to order Monday but one of the samples I wanted was sold out and I dumped the rest). I'll see what's available next week. But it's all mainly because I don't want to ship four polishes from Stackry!

I bought the EdM, Femme Fatale, Glisten & Glow and Hit the Bottle from PPU.

It's hard to know whether it's just the international orders with Tortuga that were delayed or all international orders. I guess you will know if you got the dud brush once you receive it. Ooh, hope you get the gift. You got Dark Kiss last time she messed up and that's gorgeous!

I like her polishes and will probably keep buying unless she completely messes things up. Although I may have to go on a complete no-buy for a while as we're hoping to do a loft conversion and that will eat all my money up for the foreseeable future. But my youngest has a very tiny bedroom and has been very unhappy with it, and my eldest isn't moving out yet (he's 18 and going to Uni, but fairly locally, so he's opted to stay at home instead of living there), so I need to try and sort out something.

That said, I did buy some Tonics last night, and might still get some from the next release, the FOMO is strong, hahaha!

Well my international order does have Tortuga in it, so either way! It would be nice to get a free gift, helps make up for the hassles and delays. And yet again, with all the orders allegedly going out last night, somehow I have no shipping notice...
Good luck with the no-buy vs FOMO, I feel your pain!

I got my shipping notice, just a day later than expected!
Yeah, I saw your comment in the group. Has your tracking actually updated yet?

I just got my Stackry stuff with 9 Illyrians and damn it, they are so pretty! Very hard to pass up on her polishes.

Will post some pictures later, but my daughter has come back from her holiday with her dad and naturally I don't have any time for anything anymore. :(

Nah, it's still in pre-shipment status of course!
Yes, they are too cute to miss sadly.
Can't wait to see your pics!

What a surprise! She also said that the mid-July pre-orders will ship today and yesterday, but I very much doubt that too. I certainly haven't had a shipping notice yet. That said, I'm not too fussed as it's going to Stackry and my box is current;y empty anyway.
