I didn't realise that the Alchemy sale started last night, but in the end I decided not to buy anyway. I'm not that interested in the polishes after all.I got 11 "normal" polishes, Howlite, Mystery bag (1 x 3 polishes) and a backup of Snow, since I was ordering anyway and I've used it a few times already. (and the freebie, thanks for the update on that, I was long gone by then, so yay!) In the past I've struggled to narrow down my basket to 20 polishes, not this year. I don't know if it's that she's brought out a fair few I'm not interested in or if she's just released fewer polishes overall, or even that older collections get discontinued more quickly these days. A couple of years ago I ditched a few that I wanted to keep it down to 20 (because of international shipping costs) and they never came back afterwards.
I don't see me buying vast numbers from any of the BF sales though, the GPLs - it'll be 5, the GLLs, I'm looking at 9 (and both only if I get lucky), Nailed It won't have that many either. I've been toying with picking up some ILNP multichromes as well though. I haven't bought any for years, so I'm missing a few. I don't think I'll get Alchemy after all.
We'll see how it goes. I'm definitely focused on fewer brands these days.
And I forgot about Glam! I'm not sure if I'll buy from them yet. There are a lot of mysteries, no limit this year, but she's been very focused on glitters in recent collections so I worry I won't like them, since none of the recent releases have tempted me. I'll see how I feel (tonight? I think)
You had me thinking about ILNP, I haven't bought in 2 years and her polishes are still so cheap compared to others, I think I'll put in an order tonight.
Did you manage to buy from the other brands you were planning?
