Next mani is Emily de Molly Silk and Denim. This is a cool thermal, especially in the cold state.

Finally, this is Tonic Polish Manna's Mystical Masterpiece with Pahlish The Big Boo. I really loved these two, they were both so glowy.

Thanks for news on my Lollipop Posse, glad it's as nice as I hoped! I guess she'll hold your other order for a while. Do I need to send you more money?
Your order is pretty, my fave is the Lilypad.

Yes, she will hold it, the question is, how long do I want it held? It's not like I don't have other polishes to wear, but I like to receive what I bought in a timely manner. I'm still waiting for my September - December FF group buy polishes and it's annoying me, hahaha. Don't worry about it, we'll sort out the money once the other one is here.

I now have taken delivery of my PPU and FTLOP parcels. So that's good!

I got my PPU order yesterday too (will post pictures in a bit). Was that the December FTLOP box? That took a while. Mine arrived on Christmas Eve.hope there won't be issues with customs with the January one as she didn't charge any VAT on the website. We shall see, I guess.

Yes, the December one, wonder why mine took so much longer than yours!

My Fedex delivery from Stackry arrived without hassle - no extra charges and on time if not early. Despite the tracking indicating it came to Stansted, went back to the USA then re-arrived in the UK the next day!

My latest mani is Pahlish - Black Cat, Pointed Hat:

Very pretty one! There is pink shimmer and microglitters in there but they're a bit camera shy - very obvious in the flesh though and they make that pretty purple very special.

Here are some recent manis. First up, KBShimmer The Kid topped with Models Own Roman Candle on the accents.

It's a cool tri-thermal, but unfortunately I didn't see much of the pink, it was sitting mostly in the middle state even though my hands were pretty warm. I only saw it when my hands were in very hot water. This is how it looked most of the time:

Next is ILNP Cozy Mittens with Supernatural Lacquer The Fabric of Space and Time on the accents.

My currrent mani is Barielle Holiday Madness topped with Bourjois Sun Scales (2013 untried) on the accents. I was going to stamp on the other fingers, but there was always something I needed to do, so it didn't happen. Oh well.

Have you seen the Illyrian restock? Apparently she'll only announce it on IG going forward. They look nice, but of course I'm not buying.
I had a look and liked a few of them but the one I loved was already gone, so I decided to skip - if it had been still available, I'd probably have got a few since I have an open Stackry. Then stressed about whether it would turn up in time! So looks like she's not FBing ever again, that way she doesn't have to listen to all the complaints about shipping :(
I will keep an eye on her IG going forward for restocks but the whole no overseas shipping makes it expensive via Stackry so I may have bought my last Illyrian for a while, unless I've got other stuff I want or a restock is "unmissable"!.
I have that ongoing box now with just Lollipop Posse and awaiting shipment of 3 GLL polishes I ordered (no clue when they are meant to ship...). I've actively been looking at all the brands I can think of to see if there's anything at all that can help justify the Stackry fees and so far - nothing! I don't really want to spend £80 to ship about 10 polishes :( I hope someone releases something cool soon in a decent quantity to make it worthwhile! Preferably not on preorder! I'm not keen on the new Wildflowers and although I like one of the new Quixotics, it would probably be cheaper to get it from RC. I can't believe this is all caused by UPS missing my deadline by just one day!

Stamping on your fingers sounds painful LOL!
I'm really drawn to that last mani in greens, not normally what I'd choose but I really like this! Stamping not required for a fab look!

That's really annoying. Hope you can find some more polishes to make shipping worthwhile. EdM has just launched some new colours, but not sure if you'd be interested. I guess you could send the next PPU there, but I'm guessing that wouldn't arrive in time with their 3 week TAT and you probably don't want to worry about that being late. I also like the look of some Quixotics and the Fandom Flakies box (Quixotic is the guest this month). I'm trying to be very good as I'm pretty low on funds. Just had to pay £200 for a new garden gate and my car insurance is due next month.

Also, the more I swatch, the more I realise just how many lovely polishes I have that I've yet to use. I've actually finished swatching my Lilypads (nearly 200 untrieds) and have started on my ILNPs. I think I have about 100 untrieds from them. Might be more. After that I'll do CbLs and Darling Divas and maybe Enchanteds.

I know what you mean, I really liked that mani too. I was planning on doing some gold stamping, but never mind.
