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!

Purchase/Lemmings:

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!
