I had picked out about 4-6 myself, saw second image of them, and picked 4-6 from that too, will not finalise decisions until I've seen more swatches. I'm a bit disappointed, too much glitter in recent Glams and this is the same. Don't like the trio either.Did you see the Glam sneak preview? I don't think I'll be buying many polishes from the Halloween collection. Based on the bottle shot macros, I may be interested in 4 or 5.
Also, have you seen the PfD sneak? I like them on the whole, but the polishes are beginning to look a bit samey now. I'll still probably get 4 or 5 (not keen on the very bright orange one).
After seeing the swatches, I don't think I want any of the Glams. Like you said, too many glitters and the rest is just meh or samey.I had picked out about 4-6 myself, saw second image of them, and picked 4-6 from that too, will not finalise decisions until I've seen more swatches.

I like about 3 of the new PfDs, probably get them on Black Friday.
Yeah, this is very pretty. And I agree about the CbL, when I used it, I was really disappointed how little holo there was in it. I don't remember it being that runny, but it could've been. I don't seem to have it anymore, I must have sold it.Finally got round to updating my mani and sorting out the pics - this week it's Illyrian topper Dynamite with a Laser Beam over black:

It's such a pretty topper, much nicer and more glowy than in these pics.
As an aside, I don't own a plain black polish, so I decided to do it over the closest thing I have, which is the holo CbL Black Gold, Texas Tea. If I remember, when I wore this the holo was really subtle, so I thought it might work. This time around, the holo was invisible, though I didn't move around light sources to check! And it was soooo thin! It covered really well in two coats but it was flooding everywhere, I hope the others haven't gone like that. I'm now demoting it to be just undies for these nice toppers. I can't see me wanting to wear it again.
I remembered to order - I don't think they've been anywhere near as popular this time, very few sold out even this late on. You were not alone!I had to look up which ones these are. I'm just so not into this collection. These are quite nice, but I just can't be bothered to order.
These are nice, I particularly like the first one.Some recent manis. First up is Tonic Polish Furple topped with Illyrian Spark on the accents. Spark is very thin, couldn't be bothered to use it alone.

Will post some more in a bit.
I like all of these - especially the Tonic, but even the Layla!Next mani is Tonic Polish Blanche. One of the good old Tonics. I like her new stuff too, but the old ones were the best imo.

This is Layla Misty Blush (2013 untried) topped with Glam Polish Much More to You Than Meets the Eye on the accents. I hated the Layla, it was awful to apply, wasn't that holo, chipped very quickly. The Glam was just meh.

Finally this is Femme Fatale An Abandoned World. One of the older FFs and it's really nice and unique.

Well done! Did you only get those 3 in the end? Yeah, I had a look and I think one polish was gone, but I didn't order.I remembered to order - I don't think they've been anywhere near as popular this time, very few sold out even this late on. You were not alone!
I ordered a few extra Lemmings so had to consolidate without them as they were on pre-order, so my delivery will be very small (but it still cost $99 - I was a bit shocked for just 16 polishes).
I was looking at PPU last night, probably going for Lacquered U.P (depending on swatches!), Nailed It! and Lemming. A few others are quite nice but I've very much overspent recently, I also have a basket on RC I'm trying to resist. Haven't sold much on eBay for a while to fund all these RC pre-orders! And I will probably be wanting the next Nailed It! collection, so need to keep funds for that one.
10's a lot!Ouch, that's a lot for 16 polishes! I did think it was more expensive than usual for me last time too.
I like quite a few PPU polishes this month, possibly up to 10, although I'm not sure I'll order them all. I've also been quite spendy (isn't that always the case?), but I haven't bought many polishes. I did buy 2 older FTLOP polishes from a lady in one of the UK nail groups, one PfD and one Pahlish, I think they were both in the same box, the PfD is Glinda. I think it was the Wizard of Oz box from last year. She posted them today, hopefully they'll be here soon.
Speaking of the FTLOP box, she is very late this month, only posted a sneak yesterday. The guest is Baroness X. Not sure if I want the box yet, probably not, but will wait for swatches to decide.
I have quite a long list of EdMs now that I'd like, hope she has a good Black Friday sale. Same with PfD, although I don't want as many. Luckily I don't like the FF release for October, but then I did buy the entire birthday collection at the beginning of this month, so...
LE279 is beautiful! I think I'm 3 releases behind with EdM, plus she has a Halloween trio coming out and I definitely want those. I might place a small order for those and the LE ones I like and leave the rest for BF. I have an open Stackry box with 5 polishes in it currently.10's a lot!
Glinda was very pretty, well done!
I haven't seen FTLOP yet, will see what I think.
One of the polishes in my RC cart is EdM LE279, I had a couple of others in there too, so far I'm holding off though.
I have about 14 PfDs I want at the moment, so a big Black Friday order for those is definitely on the cards! Can't think of too much else I'll be going for though (at the moment!).
