Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand

I've had such a busy and tiring week, TGIF. What are you buying from Glam today? I think I'm getting 6: Would You Do It For a Scooby Snack, Scare Me, Terrifying Tales, Monster Mash, Penny Dreadful and In Our Town of Halloween. Apparently they won't ship until December though, mind you, it's not like I'm short of polishes for Halloween and in general. (Not really doing Halloween anyway, especially not this year.)

I was a bit underwhelmed with PPU at first, but there are still a few polishes I'd like, will probably get 4. Pretty sure I'll get the Femme Fatale, Fair Maiden and Supernatural, and then pick another one out of the Lilypad, Alchemy (the pink one, not the blue/green flakie topper) and Nailed It. Might go with the Lilypad.

I received one polish this week, it's the Lacquester from the Polish Con UK group. It was held virtually as obviously it couldn't go ahead. I think it's really pretty.

My Tonics from Girly Bits are finally on their way and Kay says the Glams were posted yesterday, so hurray! I still haven't finished swatching them all, I've hardly done any in the past 3 weeks. I'm barely managing to stay awake long enough to do my nails.

What do you think of the new PfD collection? I quite like them, but the polishes are beginning to look a bit samey. I found the same with the PPU colour, it's just the smae flakies in a different colour base nowadays. So I'm not getting that, but I'll probably get some of the new collection during the Black Friday sale.

I'll try to post some mani pictures soon, but I'm really tired now. I'm not a morning person, and having to get up at 6.30 am every day has really taken its toll. Yawn.

I have a few more manis to show. First is Lilypad Lacquer Queen with Polished for Days Hawthorne. I really liked this mani.

Next is Illyrian Polish Dew. Not my favourite Illyrian, but it's nice.

Finally this is Different Dimension Comet with Topshop Brazil (2013 untried). I love the DD, it's so sparkly and shiny.

Very nice! Hawthorne is lovely and I agree with you on the DD - a nice pretty colour. Not so keen on the Illyrian, it really wouldn't suit me but it looks good on you.

Yay! PayPal awarded me $45! The stupid seller can suck it! I will list the perfume on eBay, I should be able to recoup the other $45 with any luck.
I'm pleased for you! Hope you get the rest back from selling it. My lockdown project has been to clear out clothes that no longer fit and I'm finding I'm selling a fair amount of them on eBay! My old tat is turning into money on a daily basis. It's very satisfying, and is clearing me some much needed space too. I still have two full bin bags of stuff to iron and photograph as well, could turn out to be a nice little earner!

I've had a bit of a week too, students came back on Monday and though I'm not back to campus till next year it's been full on preparing for them and answering all their questions. I now also have a skype phone line from them coming into my laptop, which feels just wrong! So glad it's the weekend, but the F1 is early this week, so no long lies sadly.
My Glam list only overlaps with yours by one! Terrifying Tales. I'm also planning to get Lucifer (of course!), Mr Slappy, Doctor Sleep, Amityville, Interview with the Vampire. I'm additionally very drawn to the green one (I know, unusual!) Creepy Creeps with Eerie Eyes, but I'm not sure. Probably skip that. Amityville is the other I'm less sure about, we'll see how the impulse hits me when I get my shopping boots on!
I haven't seen much from new PPU yet, so no clue what I'll buy. I like about half of the PfDs, tempted to buy them soon from Harlow as I have loads of points and they do free shipping - I also fancy the red Wildflower that they released recently. We'll see how it goes.

I like your Lacquester, and yay for getting your deliveries soon! I too have my Glam shipping notice.

Did you get everything you wanted? I got all 6.

:( No. I was right in the middle of doing my nails (didn't realise it was so late!) and missed the launch. Doctor Sleep, Mr Slappy and Amityville Horror were all gone. Bit gutted as Mr Slappy was the one I fancied most, the other two not so fussed. So I added the Creepy green one and just got four. I just checked the Oz site to see if they still had Mr Slappy, I thought maybe I could ask for one to be added but it was sold out there too - they had very few left at all. Oh well, not exactly short of polish! I will just have to do without that one.
