I first tried this technique during the laid back 31day challenge and I loved the simplicity and the effect that can be created just by using a straw.
The base is Models Own, Red Alert and the black and white are stamping polishes. I tried using a normal white but it wasn't pigmented enough and just looked watery and milky. That said I like how it looks altogether, an unintentional bonus :)

I was asked the day, how many nail polishes do you own? I paused, thought about it and then realised it's been a very long time since I last counted so I didn't know and guessed at 40. The person who asked the question looked a little shocked and taken back when I said 40. Is 40 a big number? Not at all but for a non-polish addict, 40 seamed obsessive. oops.
Once home I went straight to the corner where I keep my polish and started to count. The final count was 102 bottles... 50 of this is from one brand, Models Own.
My initial guess of 40 was seriously out. I can't seam to walk past Boots, Superdrug or even a Poundland without popping in and just having a quick look (it's surprising how many little gems have been found in Poundland) I don't buy a new polish with each visit, I just wish I did!
Missing from the collection, Splash box set, Ice neon box set and the fruit pastel box set, theses I can confidently say will be added to the collection very shortly!
