Nail Polish Survey

Nail Polish Survey

I saw this survey on The Giveaway Lifestyle and thought I'd do it too.  :)

How many polishes do you have in your stash?
About 240

Which brand do you own the most of?
China Glaze

What colors do you own the most of?
I almost have a whole drawer of nothing but reds and pinks.

Do you have a color/texture you do not own?
I don't have any browns or tans, I have that on my list to fix soon though lol. 

What's the one polish you always pick up to lift your spirits?
Orly Sweet Peacock.  It's my very favorite that I own. 

What polish do you keep looking at and wondering why you haven't gotten rid of it yet?
I have an old Sally Hansen pink polish that is just a bottle of goo because before I knew any better I put acetone in it to thin it out.  I don't know why I don't just throw it away because it's not fixable lol.

Franken any? or I'm nervous to try it?
I have a few frankens that I made on a whim because I didn't have the color in my stash that I needed.  You can see one of them in THIS POST. I call it "roll tide red".  Nothing that special.  I made it out of NYC Big apple red creme and a black polish with a little bit of purple. 

Do you franken for new/original polish ideas or franken for polish you won't be able to own?
I don't really franken that often, but like I said above the ones I have made were just on a whim because I needed a different shade. 

Go-to Base Coat?
Salon Sciences Instant Artificials

Go-to Top Coat?
Seche Vite.

What's your sexiest polish?
according to my husband it's anything neon pink.  He likes China Glaze Pool Party. 

Stamping vs Free Hand?
I love to do free hand nail art but I do stamp some.  I am not very good at stamping really. 

Bling me, baby? or No bling for me, please!
I have only done rhinestones a few times but I do love me some glitter. 

I consider my nails basically nekkid if they don' t have some kind of design?
I have started to feel that way lately, I don't know why though.  I need to have some kind of nail art on at least one accent finger to feel complete lol

My favorite plate/tool/technique.  
My favorite plate is M64, my favorite tools are my paint brushes, and my favorite technique (right now) is gradient. 

What I haven't tried and want to within the month?
I want to try a rainbow gradient with the black and clear water marble on top.  I think that is so neat looking.  

The one elusive polish you want and can't seem to get?
NVL Floam!!!!!

What was the last nail related thing you bought?
Pure Ice French Kiss

How many nail related hauls have you bought in the last 7 days (on-line/in-person)?
none in the last 7 days

If you've ever been on a no-buy, how long did it last? Is that what you planned?
It wasn't intentional but I didn't buy anything for about a month or so in February and into March. 

(and one question to grow on) Hobby? Addiction? Compulsion? Passing Fancy? Love?
I'd say it's a hobby that I love.  :)
