Nail Polish Survey!

today i'm going to take this survey that the lovely Kellie of Also Known As... had as one of her posts a couple years ago! see her answers here :)

How many polishes do you have in your stash?
hmmmm... somewhere between 300-400 probably! but i would think it's much closer to 300.

Which brand do you own the most of?
OPI wins by a landslide... i just started collecting other brands this year... so probably about 200 of my collection is OPI alone!

What colors do you own the most of?
i have all sorts of shades and finishes in pink.

Do you have a color/texture you do not own?
i don't have any glitters that contain different shapes... i did have one of the Nicole by OPI heart polishes, but the hearts didn't want to come out, so i got frustrated and gave it away.

What's the one polish you always pick up to lift your spirits?
the color isn't important, a full glitter mani always makes me smile!

What polish do you keep looking at and wondering why you haven't gotten rid of it yet?
i have a drawer with a few polishes with bad formulas that i've found dupes for... i keep my backups and supplies in the same drawer, so whenever i open it i have a slight UGH moment :)

Franken any? or I'm nervous to try it?
no, i've never tried... but i might one of these days!

Do you franken for new/original polish ideas or franken for polish you won't be able to own?
i think both reasons are great!

Go-to Base Coat?
Seche Base.

Go-to Top Coat?
Seche Vite.

What's your sexiest polish?
good question! you can't go wrong with OPI Midnight In Moscow... love a touch of vamp!

Nail Design:

Stamping vs Free Hand?
i've never even posted any of my freehand attempts... i'm not good at it! i've never tried stamping because i hate to fuss with things, and there are way too many steps involved in stamping... lame, i know.

Bling me, baby? or No bling for me, please!
i LOVE when other ladies use rhinestones... i generally don't on myself because, sadly, i'm a picker and they will be gone within an hour :(

I consider my nails basically nekkid if they don' t have some kind of design?
no... but i can't bear to see them without polish!

My favorite plate/tool/technique?
i love looking at all types of nail art, it's so beautiful and creative... i wish i could do it! when i do try things, i use dotting tools.

What I haven't tried and want to within the month?
i'm going to try just buffing my nails smooth and using no base or topcoat with a holo polish!

Purchase/Lemmings:

The one elusive polish you want and can't seem to get?
like most people, i'd love the original OPI My Private Jet... i have two different later incarnations, but the real deal is awe inspiring! i also desperately want Nail-Venturous Floam... it's so cool! hopefully, i'll get my grubby paws on it one day :)

What was the last nail related thing you bought?
last week i bought a few polishes from Kmart... planning to hit Ulta this week! can't wait to take advantage of the buy two get one free promo.

How many nail related hauls have you bought in the last 7 days (on-line/in-person)?
hmmm, i was good last week! just the one!

If you've ever been on a no-buy, how long did it last? Is that what you planned?
nope, i'm an instant gratification kind of girl :)

(and one question to grow on) Hobby? Addiction? Compulsion? Passing Fancy? Love?
i would say that's it's a love that turned into a buying compulsion and addiction... that i've redirected into a hobby (but, let's face it, it's still an addiction!). that covers most of the bases!

i would love to read other people's answers, if you've taken or want to take this survey, please post your link to it in the comments! Ria :)
