Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand

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).
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.
I like about 3 of the new PfDs, probably get them on Black Friday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
