Blimey, what a palaver! I got tired just reading it. You see I was wise, logged in, added everything to my cart (except Amelia that only went up when the sale started), woke up (4.30 am I think), checked out, job done, lol. Same with EdM, only she messed up her own time, so didn't launch at 2 am, but once I got the PfDs, I bought those too, nothing was gone, besides nothing was limited as far as I know.So far just the PfD, not too many of those either - I just made the discount shopping total, skipped all the mystery bundles too as they would probably have stuff I own already. It was a major palaver sorting them out, first I messed up the time of launch, then I crashed my laptop to a point where it would not work. Then the 1am launch I expected never happened, finally went to bed around 2 after spending half an hour trying to find the power supply for my old laptop. Missed launch time at 3, but woke at 4:30 and decided to go for it. Laptop still dead, so used the old one, it was soooo slow, finally got it up and running, filled the basket veeerrrryyyy sloooooowly, nearly had a fit when I saw the shipping costs, took some stuff out, realising I'd never get to the second free gift or higher shipping discount without spending a fortune, spent about 10 minutes trying to find the place to put the code for shipping discount, then got blue screen of death just as I was paying. Rebooted, spent another 10 minutes waiting for it to start Firefox, then the browser decided it needed to update.... 10 minutes later got going again, filled basket very slowly again, realised it had saved my old basket, emptied out all the duplicates, finally made the payment and it was 5:45! Fell asleep, got up at 8, now I'm knackered...
If I don't get the bloody free polish after that, I will NOT be happy!!!!
Anyhow, I'll look at Illyrian and hopfully get some cool stuff though I'm not convinced they'll have much or sufficient stock. Then I'll decide if I can afford Alchemy and Lemming orders I have ready to go. I'll also have a look at Vapid since I like yours so much! There are a couple of Pahlishes I love, but too expensive to ship for just 2. I'll also have a look at Potion later, not expecting anything. And there are a few cheap non-polish things I want to pick up too. I'm skipping Glam this month too, there are a couple I like, but the one I skipped last month is not on the UK site this time, so I'll wait and see if I can get the others next time.
By the way, Jenna finally emailed me and has sent a replacement FTLOP box.
I got 12 EdMs and quite a lot of PfDs, but no mysteries, I bought everything from PPU/FTLOP that I wanted - except for Harbour Beach, but I'll try to buy that in a destash. Someone has offered already, apparently once she wears her polishes, she sells them (very wise!), so I'm on her "waiting list", hahaha.
Enchanted has launched their winter collection, so far only posted swatches for 2 polishes, but I probably won't buy anyway, I need to save money - I have to keep saying this to myself!
