So as if it wasn't obvious enough already, I've come to the conclusion that I'm a true hoarder. Or maybe collector would be a more flattering word? I cannot resist anything limited edition or HTF (hard to find). If there's the slightest bit of buzz around a polish, I have to have it, whether I actually like it or not. I always have the urge to own complete collections even if I know I will only actually wear half the polishes in it.
A perfect example is the OPI Alice in Wonderland Collection. I've posted about one of the polishes in it, Absolutely Alice, before. There are four polishes in total in this collection, two glitters and two reds. The reds are the usual run of the mill OPI colours but the glitters really got the polish world talking. OPI promptly discontinued this collection and the two glitters, Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter, became HTF. I was lucky enough to get my hands on Mad as a Hatter in a blog sale recently. I paid an obscene amount of money for it even though it didn't really catch my eye in swatches. But because of my whole "own all the HTFs" obsession, I had to have it.
So here is my Alice in Wonderland mani - 3 coats of Mad as a Hatter with top coat, and 3 coats of Absolutely Alice with top coat as an accent nail.
To be completely honest, MaaH still isn't really doing it for me but at least I can look at that bottle in my collection and feel a sense of contentment. Do you ever feel the same way about nail polish, or any other obsessions?
