Nail Survey

This reminds me of the good ole days of Myspace, when your bulletins pages would be littered with "surveys". Basically, one person slam books on various subjects. I miss those.
Well, here is one based on nails, created by Anne of Nailtastic. I grabbed the translated version from Alizarine Claws (who by the way has a FANTASTIC blog you need to be following):

For how long have you been a nail nerd?
"Officially" about 6 months. Crazy, right?

How many polishes do you have in your collection? 
It runs a little over 600 right now.

If you, starting now, had to use polishes from one brand only, which one would it be? 
Ugh - so hard! I love the formula of Illamasqua but their line is just not big enough to offer me all of the color choices I'd want for an entire stash. I'd guess...I'm gonna go with Color Club. They've got a little of everything and a nice formula. They also have a really good Quick Dry top coat.

How much do you spend on polish and nail care in one given month?
Totally depends...I am fortunate enough to have a fairly disposable income so I probably spend 75% of my money on polish related purchases...but Im currently not working so...

The most expensive polish in your collection is..?
One lone Chanel. Though I do also have one Lynnderella which probably outprices the Chanel on resale-ability.

What are your lemmings right now?
I am pretty happy with what I have, but I do really want some OPI Suedes, Borghese Almondine, Essie Starry Starry Night and Illamasqua Raindrops.

Favourite finish?
I love glitters and I love matte shimmers/suedes.

Finish you just can't stand?

What nail care products can't you do without?
Cuticle oils and creams. I must have 15 at least.

What polish is on your nails right now?
It's a red, white and blue mani I did for a contest. Can't tell you or I'd have to make you drink the polish!
