Oh, wow, now that I have seen all three, SO GLAD I got these. All three are totally up my alley. I might have to set them aside for a while and reassess my financial situation since I ordered them before certain financial things came up, so I might have to sell them after all, but if I don't need to scramble for cash, these are perfect for me.

I'm still debating if I want to use mine... I mean, EP basically made its name because they started doing this type of polish when other indies were making Lynnderella type polishes (not my style, hate glitter). But now these are pretty common, and you can find similar beautiful holo and multichrome polishes from anywhere between 20-60% less

 

A full size AtC polish is only $6.50 right now and they have some gorgeous holos. https://www.etsy.com/shop/AboveTheCurve And their minis are really really deluxe... definitely thinking about buying more (but suddenly, I've acquired like 15 new polishes over the last two weeks so maybe I should stop...)

And its the name that's keeping the aftermarket insanely priced even with other alternatives available. I'll probably keep the three I ordered as I don't have the CbLs that are near dupes and purple polish. After all, I must have All the Purples!

I forgot to post this earlier:  I placed a Rainbow Honey order over Black Friday weekend (it might have been on the last day to use that code), and when I first opened my package, I was SO CONFUSED because there was a packet of minis and a cuticle balm that I definitely did not order.  For one thing, there was no way to order the minis!  Then I saw the sticker:  "Thank you for an amazing year..."  Surprise freebies!  The best kind!  Super fun!

  • Royal Fruits cuticle balm
  • Sweet Talk mini
  • Best Friend mini
  • Mint Flavor mini

ETA:  I just noticed Above the Curve has a shade called Pretend It's a Plan.  That is one of my favorite lines as well as a life motto.

I got all three EP polishes for a one time treat, and November and December are stunning. I'm not sure how I feel about the holiday polish, though. I looked at EP polishes on ebay, and the prices are insane. Do people really sell them for that? My mind is blown.

Mine should be here today! So excite! It just occurred to me that these might be close to some a-englands I have. Hmm. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Yep, some of the second hand prices are insane, especially if it's a one-time release in a popular color, or if it's an older release.

They're here!  I need to look at them in direct sunlight, though.  I'm super undecided about them in my living-room-in-the-evening lighting.

Le sigh.  I *want* to take advantage of the RH additional-20%-off code and get a bunch of scented top coats, but of the scents they have available, I either have them or have no interest in them.  I had a bunch of them I had been planning on picking up after Secret Santa was over, and every single one has been pulled from the site!  Super bummed.

Thanks to @@Christa W, I'm wearing a-england's Fotheringhay Castle, and holy glowing antique olive, Batman!  This stuff is *gorgeous*.  When I think about it without having it in front of me, I keep thinking it's more gold than green, but that is fortunately not the case, at least on me.  And it looks like it's merely metallic when light hits it directly -- until the light shifts and hits it just right, and then OMG IT IS A HOLO.  Ugh.  It's going to be really hard to pay attention to my work tomorrow instead of my nails!

Cult Nails is liquidating:

very sad day. ): more from me when I'm back (eating dinner now)

 

That's too bad. I feel like this is a period where there's a bit of rebranding and closures happening in the indie world.

Such a shame about Cult. I placed an order as soon as I heard. I think the indie market is becoming overly saturated at this point. I think we can probably expect to see a more closures over the next year.

I will suggest this type of nail colors should wear properly and carefully it doesn't due to the brands they are just look beautiful how we present on the nail.

Hey guys KBShimmer just featured on E! news and having a tv flash sale 6 polishes 20 bucks and 5.95 shipping. It's a set of specific polishes you can check out the KBShimmer FB for the link. I wish I had my taxes back already.

At first I thought Urban Camo was another peridot dupe until I looked up swatches  :wub:   I caved but I'll probably give away the coral tbh.

I have Pretty in Punk which is the holo version and it's amazing. I also have Falling for Hue and it's awesome. I'm glad someone could take advantage!!!

Due to what happened yesterday here with the mods all stepping down and then being forbidden to say why, I'm leaving the forums.  I'm going through the threads I was active in (at least at one point) to say goodbye and good luck to those of you choosing to stay here and not join us elsewhere.  You are all very kind and amazing women and I appreciate your feeding my indie addiction.

 

If anyone would like more info about where some of us are going, feel free to PM me.

 

I do hope to somewhere somehow see most of you again :)
