Gorgeous! I really like the Tonic/ILNP/EP combo you've used there.

This one is Bear Pawlish Haloki (over black) with Illyrian Polish Prototype 203 (or is it 201? I think this was one of the mislabelled ones.)

@Anitacska, how many Tonic mystery bags do you plan to purchase? I see there are still some left and they are lifting the limit in about 3 hrs.
It was 3 am here, so I didn't get any more. Got 2 originally. Thought about getting more when the original time was 8 am (2 am CDT), but it's for the best really as I also got the 4 fairies, so have spent plenty enough already. Did you get any?

Just the 2 like you. I love Tonic, but I don't love mysteries, so I was happy to stick with 2 sets. I think the release was handled really well.

I am very shocked, this month there aren't any PPU polishes that I feel are must haves. Not sure what's with me, lol. Haven't seen a few from favourite makers ( Femme Fatale, Girly Bits, Fair Maiden, Different Dimension), but the rest I'm finding really samey now. Oh well, money saved.

Yeah, import fees worry me.

I ended up ordering Estrella and Blush, decided against Morning Star, I didn't love it enough. Did you get anything?
I did! I got Estrella, Blush, Yggdrasil, Dragon's Breath, Morning Star & Flowerbomb, made it to free US shipping so it's going to Stackry. I honestly don't know which is cheaper, import fees or Stackry fees, but I have about 20 days till I need to empty Stackry, hope it gets there on time. I think if it wasn't started already I'd have UK'd them. Or if I hadn't made it to free shipping.

I haven't seen any PPU for next month yet, if you don't want them I probably won't! I do fancy several of the new Glams though, and I really want the next COTM from Illyrian. Always another thing to buy!

This week's mani is No 7 Taffeta, accent nail with Indigo Bananas Spectraflare 20 top coat.

I topped them all at first, but I missed the duochrome effect so I went back and left it as an accent. I think this might be my oldest duochrome polish.

She's promised a 10 day TAT, so she'd better deliver! My postbox will be due for emptying mid-September, so that's why I didn't want to wait until the next release to get Estrella, I don't think it would be there by then.

I now want the Different Dimension! I do like quite a few, but they are either similar to other colours or from makers I don't know. I only want to buy from a handful of makers now, unless the polish is very unique and gorgeous. There seem to be a lot of reds too (Edm, PfD), and while I like them, I'm not in love. I do think you'll like those.

I like a few of the new Glams, the purples in particular and the duochrome bronze one, but again I'm not sure how unique they are. I'm about to commit to the loft conversion, so funds will be very limited going forward.

A few recent manis, first up is Tonic Polish Heart on Fire with Femme Fatale An Immortal Soul. Ignore the chip/tipwear, I took the pictures after a whole day at Thorpe Park.

Next is Different Dimension Dueling Unicorns with Emily de Molly Divine Conversations. The DD was one of my first ones from the brand. I liked the EdM, but it didn't look as amazing as it does in the bottle. I think it's a bit too dark for the flakies/glitter to show up properly.

And this is Fair Maiden Welcome Christmas with FUN Lacquer Daydreamer. Not great pictures as we were out all day on Hayling Island, but the FM has a nice shift to it.
