tagged! nail polish survey

i'm stealing this from Nouveau Cheap :D yay!

How many polishes do you have in your stash?
approx. 400 and counting!!

Which brand do you own the most of?
hmm probably china glaze or opi. i have sooo many brands though, so i'd totally have to count to make sure!

What colors do you own the most of?
pinks and greens

Do you have a color/texture you do not own?
i don't have any water polishes, but i want them! (here is a link to a post by Lacquerized that explains the finishes of polish, it's also in my sidebar)

What's the one polish you always pick up to lift your spirits?
probably claire's magic :D it's probably my favorite (for now) and i'll be posting a swatch of it soon!

What polish do you keep looking at and wondering why you haven't gotten rid of it yet?
haha there's a lot. but i usually find them a good home! i did trade in some old formula nastys in the Zoya exchange just recently though haha.

Franken any? or I'm nervous to try it?
not yet. i have tried but they've been messy utter failures!

Do you franken for new/original polish ideas or franken for polish you won't be able to own?
if i did, I would do it for both reasons. my favorite (idea anyway) is to look at frankens other people have done and think what it would be like to recreate their original :)

Go-to Base Coat?
seche retain with a coat of orly bonder over top!

Go-to Top Coat?
seche vite or nail life speed demon

What's your sexiest polish?
lippmann ruby red slippers for SURE! sexi rexi!

Nail Design:

Stamping vs Free Hand?
neither. i'm ridiculously bad at nail art. even though i have konad plates (thanks Diana!) I still haven't gotten the hang of them! occasionally I'll do polka dots, but that's rare too.

Bling me, baby? or No bling for me, please!
i wish, again, bad at nail art.

I consider my nails basically nekkid if they don' t have some kind of design?
no way, color is my staple!

My favorite plate/tool/technique?
i love the full design konads with holo polishes. and Steph from Steph's Closet is totally the polka dot queen. i envy her.

What I haven't tried and want to within the month?
i'm going to try to conquer my konad!


The one elusive polish you want and can't seem to get?
nars zulu and Clarins 230

What was the last nail related thing you bought?
i got two china glazes last week to get the free seche treatment from sally beauty, i got Sacred Heart and VIII.

How many nail related hauls have you bought in the last 7 days (on-line/in-person)?
like two, but I got some nail mail this week so a lot more than that haha :D

If you've ever been on a no-buy, how long did it last? Is that what you planned?
*sigh* they never last

(and one question to grow on) Hobby? Addiction? Compulsion? Passing Fancy? Love?
it's definitely an addiction/compulsion. i can't get enough! but i'm ok to the point of being able to say no if i know something is a dupe. and i haven't gotten into paying extreme prices for anything yet so i'm still good, right?!

Everyone is tagged my dears!
