    Oh yeah, I'm now in far too many groups and it's really difficult to keep up and also to not want to buy everything!

    I'm just happy to own them to be honest! I know I probably won't even wear some of them even once (unless I live to 100!). There are very few polishes I've used more than once, other than topcoat, basecoat, black and white cremes, stamping polishes, there's probably another 10, maybe 15? Sad I know.
    It's not sad if they bring you joy and you're not about to be homeless! I definitely own certain makeup items just to own them. I say I'm collecting them as art pieces!

    I do find nail polish more frustrating to purchase than makeup though. The same polish looks so different in pics and no one ever takes a pic of their hand at a distance. I appreciate the close-ups obviously, but a shot of the whole hand would help me judge things better.

    I'm trying to be smarter with makeup and nail polish purchases these days as well. Getting better. Still have some failures though!

    Mani pictures: First one is UP Colors Cromoterapia (2012 untried) with ILNP Neon Rosebud on the accents. The UP Colors was very sheer and took 4 coats (I didn't apply it over black for a change and regretted it promptly). Definitely not one of my best multichromes.

    Next mani is Fun Lacquer Purfect for Me. It's a pretty thermal and still works fine.

    Next one is Emily de Molly Spell Check with Glam Polish Libra. The EdM was one of my must wear polishes, it's gorgeous.

    My current mani is OPI Rally Pretty Pink (2012 untrieds) with Illyrian My Sun and Stars. I then added stamping and smudged it with my topcoat. Ugh. The OPI took 4 coats and is actually very similar to the Nails Inc polish you're wearing, PQ.

    I have also dropped a lot of brands, but unfortunately I also added a good few to my collection.

    You crack me up! To be fair, I don't think I'll ever wear all of mine even once, seeing that I buy them faster than I use them!

    Doesn't look as good on as it does in the bottle - and it took 4 coats to get close to opacity (if I wasn't bored, I'd have done another, but not worth the effort in all honesty). It's not terrible, but a bit dull.
    Pretty, but yeah. I wore this last year and felt the same about it. Very similar to the OPI I'm wearing and similarly sheer.

    Yeah, I have a good few bits of make up I bought without ever intending to wear. Luckily for my bank account I'm completely over make up, only buy Guerlain and Urban Decay now, Guerlain for the Meteorites and Rouge G lipsticks and Urban Decay for the palettes. I hardly use any though, I'm too lazy to bother.

    I seem to have some sort of an obsession going any given time. It used to be make up and scarves, now it's nail polish! Mostly I think it's shopping!
