Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand

First swatches of the Glams are not impressing me! And I'm not fussed on FTLOP either. So my plans are just the 3 PPUs to go to Stackry. I don't like the new FFs either! First lot of Illyrians have arrived, Fancy Gloss has shipped. Still waiting for Illyrians 2 and Lollipops but plenty of time for those to get there!

I've just bought the 7 polishes I mentioned the other day from PPU. I got one from FF and an EdM LE that's sold out on the EdM website, so I thought I might as well. Plus I had loads of points to spend from my mega order in February. I will pass on the Glams though, nothing excites me.

New mani is Lacquered U.P. Essence of Gelfling:

I really like this! I've looked at the brand a lot but their website is always sold out, this was a PPU buy. It came with a discount code, though what you're meant to spend it on I've no idea as she hasn't restocked in months!

This looks really pretty. I don't buy from her, I vaguely remember some issues with the maker (before she was a maker), but this is pretty. I also like her current PPU polish, but again, passed. (I may ask for a decant of this though.)

I think I'm going to add the Lemming to my PPU order later...
Did you order it?

I just bought the FTLOP box. I think I'm done buying polish for a few weeks. I checked HHC and I don't want anything, so unless there's an unexpected Tonic launch, I don't think there's anything else until the next PPU/FTLOP/FF/Glam launch. Not sure I want to start another Stackry box soon either, it's very pricey.

Yes, I ordered the Lemming and they're going to Stackry. I don't currently have any more shopping to do either, unless Illyrian do something new soon. I had the shipping notice for the second lot today. And I have about 39 days till I need to ship what's there so we'll see what gets added. I haven't seen HHC yet though...

I have a few manis to show, first is Tonic Polish Moonstruck with Fair Maiden Clara. I really liked them both.

Next is Glam Polish Go Eat Worms! It was okay, not my favourite, but nice colour.

Finally, this is ILNP Pick Me Up topped with Miss Beauty Cosmic Glitter on the accents. No idea where that topper is from. I love the ILNP, lovely colour, very holo and really nice formula.

Also, Max says hi! He's become very good at shuffling, he managed to get to the other end of the living room (about 5.5 meters), climb onto the cushions and turn around all by himself. I left him alone for a few minutes and was very confused when I couldn't find him for a few seconds!

Yay, go Max! He looks quite happy there xxx
Nice manis, the Glam is cuter than I remember it being. Love your mysterious topper in the last one!

He was very pleased with himself!

Lol, I think the topper is from Poundland or Poundworld or something like that. I only have one from that brand, so must have picked it up on a shopping trip years ago.

I received some of my Glams today. They were posted in 3 packages and 2 came today, so I'm short of 4 polishes. I hope they come tomorrow. I asked for the tracking number in the UK Glam group, but my comment has been ignored so far. I do like these a lot (although the gold flakie topper came a little underfilled - wouldn't mind, but it cost $15!).

My March PPU UK order is on its way too, I was beginning to wonder when she would post them. Hope they arrive okay.

These are nice - I'm actually quite taken with Lords & Ladies. Bit cheeky underflling your topper though. Hope the others have turned up safely. I only got my PPU shipping notice yesterday.

L&L is really pretty. My favourite is Gone Girl, I didn't think I would like it this much. Yes, the rest turned up yesterday. Hoping for my PPU order to arrive today.

My PPU order has arrived! I really like them all, but my two absolute favourites are the Dreamland and the Different Dimension. I also got 2 cuticle pens from DD that I forgot to take pictures of. Got another discount code from DD if anyone wants is.

I have a few manis to share. First is Femme Fatale Apothecary with Femme Fatale Maze of Mirrors on the accents. This was my Easter mani. I was going to do an Easter stamping, but then realised that I don't like my one and only Easter stamping plate and didn't want to use the same image as I used last years, so I didn't. I did add some tulips, but I should've used black or white stamping polish as it didn't come our well with the green. I included a picture anyway.

This is Tonic Black Friday with Different Dimension Foo Fighters (over black) on the accents plus stamping with Kaleidoscope 54 Storm Cloud. This was my birthday mani.

Some more birthday mani pictures. I didn't manage to take pictures in the sun because I only managed to do the stamping in the afternoon, so included a picture I took under my kitchen lights to try to show up the sparkles in the Different Dimension.

IMG_20210408_163351224.jpg

Finally this is Emily de Molly LE 156. It's a magnetic, but the effect was quite subtle, although it could be my fault as I was doing my nails really late and couldn't be bothered to keep my fingers on the magnet for ages. It doesn't show very well in the pictures, but there were some gold sparkles in the magnetic lines.

I was going to include my current mani too, but I haven't cropped the pictures yet and it's late. Next time.

I feel like I'm talking to myself, where is everyone? I have a teeny tiny destash purchase to show, Tonic Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe. I'd been wanting it for ages, so very happy.

IMG_20210414_133910281.jpg

Otherwise I haven't bought any polishes, and luckily I didn't like anything from HHC or the upcoming Project Artistry either. Just requested consolidation of my stuff at Stackry, don't really want to start another box anytime soon, but we'll see what happens with Tonic (she's gone AWOL, so not expecting anything), the next FTLOP box, HHC, etc.

Hey Anita, sorry I haven't been around, working silly hours thanks to a new big project I've been handed - thought it would be quicker while WFH but it doesn't seem to be!
Your Tonic is very cute!
I have only bought a couple of Shleees since I was last on (they had a sale and Stackry's open!). My second Illyrian order finally turned up at Stackry (13 days from notice to actual shipping...), so did my Lollipops so happy about that. I also won another Glam $10 giveaway on FB, so yay, go me! I hope I find something I like in the next release as it expires end May!
I only have one mani in the camera, but I've been too busy to upload/edit/post, will do it soon as I've got a bit of breathing space!
Hope all is well - and Max continues to improve?

Sorry to hear you've been so busy. I've been pretty busy too, and quite stressed out, but that's just how my life is usually.

Congrats on the Glam win! I won a $10 voucher from Femme Fatale and then they sent me a $5 one for my birthday, so I'm looking forward to spending it.

My Stackry stuff has been consolidated, so hopefully I'll have them by Friday. I have so many polishes in there, including the 28 Femme Fatales, and a couple of other things too.

Max is doing really well. He's actually started walking on his hind legs, only a few steps at a time and they're a bit all over the place and very wobbly, but it's a big improvement. Now I'm more hopeful he will eventually walk on all 4. He also shuffles around a lot, keeps moving from one end of the room to the other. Still keeping him in the cot overnight and he seems quite happy with it. He had a haircut last week and looks so much better.
