The Wish List
Oh Lord of the Rings, why have I even started writing a wish list? And then I'm silly enough to put it in Excel to count them. With my numbers, that's just w-r-o-n-g! The thing is, I have a habit of writing the name of the polish that looks good on this list that I've started making first time I klicked on Scrangie's blog. I do suspect you're already seeing the numbers. Scrangie has ... well, alot of nail-polish there. ;) And then the list just started to get longer and longer and longer ... and longer and it's still not nearly finished. We get new collections by far too often for WL to be done.
On my WL is a lot of nail-polish that I've already wore. That's why I know I really want them! ;) My nail polish guru (note to myself: write a blog about n-p gurus!) started lending me hers, to see which polishes will "be me" and which won't. It's a wonderful system, since some polish can really be a big no-no on your nails and some you wouldn't even think of buying but when you put it on your nails the WOW! effect is right there! So yeah, she's super cool. :)
The other thing that bugs me is also that I've ordered some n-p and am trying to empty WL, do I put them on or not? Well, I did, since I don't have them yet. :)
But the reason why I don't like making top *number* of 'must have nail polish' is, that I usually have a phase with a brand or colour, and so my top *number* changes quite often. Right now I have a total obsession with green and with brands Color Club and BB Couture. Talking about price difference, eh? Combine that with a constant Illamasqua obsession and you got it. I had Zoya and Nubar obsession months ago and although I know they have some kick-ass colours, they basically didn't make it on the list right now. But let's cut it short - I want them ALL.
I tried to make top 10, but failed miserably. I was thinking about top 42, you know, being Adams fan and all ... but that would be too easy. I think. So I made Top 20, it's the first 20 on my WL that is on the right side of the blog. The big long long list? That's it! Top 20 may change every once in a while.
What's your top *number*? Or at least three, that you're dying to have. Ok, I'm not being fair if I don't write them myself first ... here, top three, if I really must: BB Couture - Caterpillar, Color Club - Revvvolution and Essie - Sew Psyched. Today! *phew*
And an old swatch of one of my favourite O.P.I.'s ever, Catherine The Grape, so it won't be just talk.
