Yay for a new helmer, I still have one waiting to be built - I need to clear some space to put it, so far unsuccessfully. Shame about Tonics.I didn't order from Tonic, it just wasn't worth it for me. I did however order a Helmer, so I can rearrange my polishes and make space for the new ones coming from Stackry next month. There's a 3.5 week wait time, so it will only get here on the 9th July. Depending on Tonic restock, I should have my Stackry stuff mid-July.
Eh, it's fine, the Tonics were very limited and I only really wanted 2 of the possible LE polishes available. The odds were way against me. Hopefully there'll be a new collection soon, so I can send it to Stackry.Yay for a new helmer, I still have one waiting to be built - I need to clear some space to put it, so far unsuccessfully.

This is a nice red! I only have a handful of Rimmel polishes, can't remember what the brush is like. I'm not a huge fan of wide brushes, but if they're tapered, that's okay. My favourite ones are the EdM and Glam ones. I'm a messy painter, so appreciate thinner brushes.This time around I'm wearing Rimmel Movie Star:

I tried a couple of different toppers with it but gave up because they were making it less attractive rather than more. Every time I wear a Rimmel polish I'm reminded how much I love their brushes - short, wide, curved, makes polishing soooo easy!
Slow drying polishes are so annoying! However, it's a beautiful mani, maybe leave it 5 hours next time! The others are very pretty too.Here are a few of my recent manis, first up is Sally Hansen Amber Ruby (2013 untried) with Starrily Sleepy Hollow, both over black. They were okay, but as usual, the Sally Hansen didn't dry properly, so it ended up with pillow marks. I usually don't even go to bed for 3-4 hours after painting my nails!

This is Glam Polish A Little Less Conversation with Powder Perfect Fallen Star. The Glam was more green than teal, so the picture where my fingers are more yellow is the more colour accurate one.

Oo, that was fast! I was looking at their garden furniture a while back and it showed a long lead time for delivery too, obviously not looking now of course. A spare room with lots of storage space sounds like a good thing for your collection! I could do with one of those!My new Helmer is here. It wasn't supposed to come for another 2 weeks. But I've decided to leave the rearranging for now. I'd been meaning to sort out my son's old room and turn it into a spare room / storage space, so I need to do that first. I can now get into the garage and move things between us and the ex's, and I'm pretty sure the charity shops have reopened too, so I can take the unwanted stuff there. Plus my Stackry box won't be emptied out for another 3 weeks anyway.
At that rate I'll never go to bed, lol! I ususally do my nails around midnight - 1 am, then fall asleep on the sofa in front of the telly and go to bed sometime around 4-5 am. With 3 teenagers in the house we're on a late cycle, I usually only get up around 9 am. Thank god the ex has the dog, I don't think I could handle being up early to walk him every day. Last night one of the cats was out until 1.30 am, so I had to wait up for him to come in.Slow drying polishes are so annoying! However, it's a beautiful mani, maybe leave it 5 hours next time!

Yeah, the delivery day was 9th July when I placed the order! Then suddenly I got an e-mail to say it was coming.Oo, that was fast!

Hi Anita, I do have Bats Full of Shame, don't think I'll be ordering from PPU either - don't see any of the ones I regret skipping.So it looks like the new Tonic collection isn't going to be out for another 2 weeks, by which time I have to empty my Stackry box. So I guess I'll either have it sent here or wait until there's enough stuff to go to my box again. I nearly bought the 6 I want from the latest collection, but then I saw that Cupcake Polish has a 30% sale and I bought 6 from there instead.
Not sure if I should order anything from PPU. I passed on Bats Full of Shame, but if I remember correctly, Anne, you have that one. I also quite like the Ethereal and Alchemy, maybe the Blush too, but not sure if I should spend on polishes I "quite like".
Luckily I don't want anything from Femme Fatale this month, not keen on the FTLOP box and only like one or two of the new Glams, but not enough to bother with ordering.
I should probably save my money as I finally made it to the dentist (I have a loose tooth) and it looks like it might have to come out and then I'll need a double crown or an implant. So far it's cost me £90 to see the dentist and the hygienist, and then I'll have to go back in 2 weeks to see if the gum has tightened up around the tooth enough. Ugh.
