Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand

Yeah, it is very pretty on the nails, but it's absolutely stunning in the bottle. I think that's why I didn't buy it originally, most of the swatches just didn't wow me.

I placed an order with Glam yesterday, bought too many and borderline regretted it, lol. I like the ones I bought, but the shipping is quite a lot. If there was a free shipping threshold on the main site, I would've bought from there instead and would've got the other 5 I wanted. Oh well, it is what it is.

I got these:

If you're going to jump, might as well be with both feet! Some pretties there, yes it's very annoying not getting any cheap/free shipping but it is what it is. It was good when Stackry made shipping a non-issue, with a £20 one-off delivery cost for loads of brands, but those days are long gone and it's an expensive business buying enough polishes to make all the shipping fees worthwhile these days. It will be a nice package to open when it finally arrives!

Well I've had a good look at PPU and narrowed it down to 4 - Cupcake, Polished For Days, Great Lakes Lacquer and Lemming. Not sure about Lemming though. Also fancied the J Reine but the fifth takes it up a level on postage and I've never tried the brand so I decided not to go for it. What are you getting?

I've also been contemplating the Lemming, but I keep thinking I must have something similar. I'm definitely getting the Different Dimension, PfD, EdM and Girly Bits. I'm sending this order to my Stackry box since it's open.

I adore all three of these manis, stunning! Especially the red, but you knew that already!

Illyrian unreliability strikes again! From her website:
Store will be closed until further notice. R and J 96 Collection will be postponed for the end of August. I am unable to login to my FB account, so I cannot update our FB Group events atm. Thank you so much for your support, we will reopen soon with new prototypes!
I'm happy to save the money from tomorrow's launch, but look - she has a brand new excuse!

Yes, that's a briliant new excuse! Why didn't she think of that before? Also, isn't Amy still admin? Sure she could communicate through her.

I quite like the Pahlish from PPU too and still contemplating the Lemming. Also, just had a look of the HHC offerings and I like 4! I've never bought that many from HHC, but there are some really pretty polishes this month. I like the Quixotic, Femme Fatale, Esmaltes de Kelly and the Lilypad. Ah well, I've actualy saved quite a lot of money dureing lockdown, so I'm not feeling too bad about buying a few extra polishes.

She is an admin but I get the feeling that she's very out of the loop - she posted this on the group today but she'd just read it on the site I think.
I've decided to skip the Lemming - she usually has them on her site afterwards as mysteries but you can request what you want, so if I regret it there may be a plan B. Three is enough for one month in my current financial state! I'm not feeling HHC these days, since Illyrian dropped out I haven't bought anything, not for a reason, just nothing appeals enough to pay the price.

I don't normally buy much from HHC, I bought 2 of the 4 EPs and a couple of Femme Fatales in the past 6 months or so. I'm surprised how many I like this month though. I think I will get the Lemming because it's very pretty and I would probably regret it.

Awesome! Those pixie kits are very tempting every month - have you used one before? I was seriously tempted by the JReine polish this month too, and I just love almost all of those choices - should be a lovely delivery!

Thx! No, trying the kit for the first time. I thought it was a good one to perhaps give some darker polishes I don't love a little more spark.
