PUT YOUR USERNAME IN THE SUBJECT LINE

Hi Everyone! Yay! It's time for Nail Polish Secret Santa!! We like to give a decent amount of time for people to shop and order specialty items, so here we are at last.

All goons are welcome in this thread, whether you're a regular in our thread or not. The only requirement is that you are an active poster with some history. We will come after deadbeats. If the deadline passes and your assigned exchangee has not received a package and you cannot provide proof of shipping, we will request intervention from the mods. If you come to this thread with a new account and no posts to your name and try to register, you won't be matched.

Now, on to the details:

The registration period is from today, October, 20, 2013 to Sunday, November 3, 2013.

If registration slows down or stops before the close date, I may move it up. We can accommodate any stragglers pretty easily and people are usually happy to get their assignments early.

Once the registration period closes, you will receive an email with your santee assignment. All exchangees will be assigned by the end of the day on Wednesday, November 6, 2013.

How to Register:

To register you need to post in this thread and answer the following questions:

quote:


Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?

Any polish brands you dislike?

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)

What are your favourite colours?

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?

You are welcome to add anything else to your post that might assist your santa, such as links to your inventory (if you are worried about dupes), your nail polish interest/skill level, etc.

Once you post in the thread you must send an email to NailPolishSASS@gmail.com. Please include the following items in your email with your username as the subject:

2. A link to your post in this thread
3. Are you willing to ship internationally? Any specific countries you can't ship to?

I have my exchangee, now what do I do???

Well, first of all, have fun!

Gifts should total in the area of $25. With this price range you should be able to get a range of polishes, depending on the brand you are purchasing. There are no guidelines regarding how many polishes to send to your exchangee. The goal here is for us to have fun and receive strange packages from mysterious lands. Sometimes these threads can be intimidating because some people spend a lot more money than others, please keep in mind that there is no judgement here and no one should feel bad regarding how much polish they send. It truly is the thought that counts. If you are sending a well thought out, heartfelt gift, your exchangee will be happy.

The deadline for sending out your Santee's package is Wednesday, December 18, 2013.

When you send your package, make sure to get a receipt! Tracking is not required, but if for some reason the package is lost, we will need to see the proof that it was actually sent.

If you have special circumstances and are unable to send your package, please let me know. These could include any number of disasters, but the main complication that comes up is if you ordered something and it failed to arrive on time. Please remember that you will also have the option of having an item shipped directly to your exchangee.

If there is an issue with your package, please be sure to communicate with me. On that same note, please do not sign up and abandon the thread, or sign up with an email that you use rarely. If I am trying to get in touch with you regarding your santee/santa, I need an email you actually check, please.

Here are some tips on international shipping, it's not as scary as you think! (These tips are from December '12, please be responsible and check out your country's guidelines!)

moerketid posted:


Regarding international shipping for folks in the USA, it's actually way easier than a lot of people think. As far as USPS is concerned the world is split into 5 zones: The US, Canada, Mexico, World "3-5" and World "6-9". So if you're shipping outside of North America, anything you send will cost one of two rates - World 1 (3-5) or World 2 (6-9).

You can then find a price guide based on the weight of your package on this document: http://pe.usps.com/cpim/ftp/manuals...0/Notice123.pdf (Page 42)

From this you can see that a 1 ounce package to anywhere in World 1 is $3, a 2 ounce package is $3.78, etc. The price difference to World 2 is actually just a few cents cheaper, at least until we come into heavy packages, then you're talking a dollar or something: not terribly significant.

A full list of countries and their groups starts on page 45. Remember to check under the First Class Mail International column (unless you want to purchase a much more expensive express service).

You'll generally have to mail packages at your post office, with a green customs form. On the customs form you cannot declare the items as nail polish - technically you're not allowed to send it. Don't worry, people who fret about "it's illegal!!", I've yet to hear of anyone who actually got into any trouble for sending it. Anywhere. Your customs form declaration can be one of two things: cosmetics (accurate, but a very few post offices apparently get pissy about it?) or art supply. I noticed the latter is used by the largest eBay nail polish sellers with tens of thousands of feedback, so it's probably a safe bet.

Lastly, for packaging: save yourself a little cash and remember that you can use a bubble mailer (with a reasonable amount of bubblewrap) quite safely for polishes! A box is great and all, but with proper care taken in packing it's not necessary and will cost you a bit more.

So I hope that helps out if you've been unsure how the whole international shipping thing works!

If you are shipping from the UK to another country, please be fully aware of the concerns and issues surrounding this. It would be better if you used a private service rather than risk loss of your package because of Royal mail.

If your exchangee does not receive their package (and you cannot provide proof) by Saturday, January 18, 2014, you will officially be labeled a dead beat and a mod will be contacted. You will also not be permitted to participate in future exchanges.

If you need to contact your santee/santa to ask additional questions, you may send an email to NailPolishSASS@gmail.com and I will post the question in this thread or email your santee/santa.

Once you receive your package, make sure to take pics and come back here and post in the thread. This way I can check your santa off the list and we can all enjoy the pretties!

HAVE FUN!

Is that what you're posting?


Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
Yep!


What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
KBShimmer, China Glaze, OPI, Zoya, good indies (yes, this is super helpful, isn't it)

Other brands I think are great and am interested in owning more of are Misa, Barry M, Emily de Molly, Models Own

Here is a full list of my collection.


Any polish brands you dislike?
In general: drama indies, lovely quality indies, cheap quality drug store polishes

Specific brands: Lynnderella, Rainbow Honey, Spoiled/Confetti/Sinful Colors (have some of each that I like, but it's kind of a crapshoot with them)


What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
This is my poorly-updated wishlist

Some polishes I'm strongly lusting over:
- The Etude House Minnie Mouse glitters
- Sephora X Thunder
- Sephora X Wham!
- Glam Polish Go Home Sky, You're Drunk
- Glam Polish Nickle Nackle


What are your favourite colours?
Blues, purples, teals, and pinks, but I already own lots of those


Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
I'm pretty choosy about what nudes I wear, so that's probably not a good direction to go. Also, I hate frosty finishes.


Like indies?
Generally, yes


Like glitter?
I like glitters in colored jellies or tinted bases; not a big fan of glitter topcoats in a clear base these days, I just don't wear them much any more


Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Yeah, no prob


Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
I have tried and liked a lot of international brands, such as Barry M, A England, Models Own, Emily de Molly, and would love to try some interesting regional varities -- I have kind of a fascination for Korean polishes right now and totally break my own rule against clear base glitter topcoats for the interesting kinds of glitters they are putting out


Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Not really, I use very little other makeup


Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No allergies, and I like most kinds of candy (except black licorice and those weird milk candies)


Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Not really interested in a gift card, I prefer weird packages to open


Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I'm pretty good on supplies, polish would be preferred


Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
International would be awesome (I live in the US), with the sad exception of the UK right now since the Royal Mail are doing evil things to polish packages


Are you ok with dongs?
Totally ok with dongs that are inside the box! Dongify me!


I know that this description and the size of my collection makes it seem difficult to think of what to buy me. It doesn't have to be expensive brands (I own a bunch of Sally Hansen that I use all the time) and used polish is fine by me too. It can be all cremes and I will totally use them, or weird colors and I will totally use them! (I mean, everything will get used eventually -- I'm steadily whittling down my untried list.) Anything that is sent will be totally loved.

The library is the worst bunch of people assembled in history. They're mean, conniving, rude and extremely well read which makes them very dangerous.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
Okay sure

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Emily De Molly, OPI, A England, China Glaze, KBShimmer

Any polish brands you dislike?
Cheap quality drugstore polish, Sinful colors, Kleancolors, LynB Designs.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
I keep going in to edit this when new stuff comes out so I'm just going to say take a look at my wishlist stuff on pinterest, I keep it constantly updated! Keep in mind this is stuff I'd usually buy myself, don't feel like you have to get me a ton of expensive polish, you can just take it as suggestions of the kind of things I like! I'm happy with less expensive brands if you see something you think I'd like!

(I also have a pinterest board for stuff I already own & a google doc spreadsheet of what I already own)

What are your favourite colours?
Purple, Pink, Blue, Turquoise, jewel tones, dark colors, gothy princess stuff.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Oranges, Yellows, Lime green.

Like indies?
Yes, if they're good quality.

Like glitter?
Absolutely! I'm particularly fond of circle glitter. Not too fond of matte glitters. Bar glitters should be called barf glitters. Would love more stuff that's well-done glitter in a clear base.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Absolutely! No issue with that at all.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
I guess A England & EDM are international polish brands (but available shipped to us) but other than that, nothing in particular.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
I'd prefer mostly polish but I'm not opposed to samples or small beauty stuff.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No food allergies and I love japanese candies, especially HI CHEW. Strawberry & grape Hi Chews are my favoooorite. I like the milk candies also.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
I'd prefer not.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I'm pretty good on supplies but I wouldn't mind stamping plates, mainly want polish though.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
USA I guess? I don't really have a strong preference as long as it's easy for them to access stuff.

Are you ok with dongs?
I'll be disappointed if there aren't any

I won't wear Lynns because of ~morals~ and Enchanted is starting to piss me off too. No drama polishes (gosh, it's like "no blood diamonds please!") and nobody who makes polishes that are thick from the get-go. I will not "dab" on my glitter t

Dusty colours are not my thang.

Feed me anything that is not minty

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I would be cool with an emery board or whatever tossed in there but please no glass files *shudder*

Not really, I don't think I can afford overseas shipping.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Zoya, Sonnetarium, China Glaze, OPI, goon indies!

Any polish brands you dislike?
I've had bad luck with Kleancolor, and I want to avoid dramabomb indies.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
- Nail Pattern Boldness Vincent Price Is Right
- Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum
- Dance Legend TermoTRIO No. 1
- Sonnetarium Banana Pudding
- Scofflaw Love Letter To Kurt Vonnegut
- Indigo Bananas Maui Wowee
- KBShimmer Excuse Me, I Blurpled (such a bad name but soooo pretty)
- Manglaze Santorum
- OPI Barre My Soul
- Zoya Dove
(My extended wishlist is here.)

What are your favourite colours?
It's really hard to choose! I've recently gotten a fondness for browns, golds, and reds. I'm absolutely nuts about any sort of thermal polish, if you get me some of that I will love you forever. Maybe some eye-fuckingly neon polish would be good.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Pastel pink, any sort of yellowish green. Blech. I like blue, but I already have tons. I also don't much like sheer formulas or overly gloopy formulas. Bar glitters kinda suck too, outside of Connect The Dots dupes.

Like indies?
Yes please!

Like glitter?
Heck yes.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Absolutely!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Dance Legend's thermal stuff, A England, and EdM.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Nope.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
I'm allergic to pineapple, but everything else is good. I love love love coconut and chocolate.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
What's the joy in a gift card? If you really can't send me polish, a gift card to any website that sells good indies (like Color4Nails or Etsy) is fine.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Maybe some goon-made cuticle cream.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
USA if possible.

Are you ok with dongs?
Eh, they're alright. If you must, keep them inside the box.

My polish list is here. I'm steadily converting it all into a pinterest board.

Yeah buddy let's do this!

I will be editing regularly until the deadline. Even if it's a small clarification on a sentence.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
Not this year because money issues. My streak of international SASS is broken and I'm not pleased

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Zoya, China Glaze, OPI, Illamasqua, Goon polishes (Hot Mess, Sinister Benediction, Scofflaw, Yume Lacquer etc.), ORLY

Any polish brands you dislike?
The crazy ladies (Lynderella, Lime Crime), Essence, Deborah Lippman, Rainbow Honey, Julep (unless you can prove otherwise)

Also putting drugstore brands (Sinful Colors, Sally Hansen, Revlon, etc.) on a list. They're not awful, but they're readily available and I want new polish adventures.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
Scofflaw Love Letter to Jacques Cousteau

My Google spreadsheet is very comprehensive and likely scary. To be objective, I need more yellows and oranges. Cremes are nice, but I'll take anything you suggest. And greens. I need more greens.

What are your favourite colours?
Teal and blue. During summer I like corals, and winter I like vampy colors (e.g. oxblood, purple, gunmetal grey). I'm not afraid of glitter bombs and texture (e.g. OPI Sand, Zoya Pixiedust) polishes. Oh and holograms. Gimme all dem lasers.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Not a fan of bar glitter/feather texture polishes. Crackles, fuzzy, caviar/beads, and magnetic polishes are too much of a hassle for me.

Like indies?
Yes! I want to branch out my preferred list of indie polish brands.

Like glitter?
Usually! If it looks coordinated and applies smoothly I'm all over it. I dislike glitter bombs that look like bad arts and crafts projects *ahem*Lynderella*ahem*

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
I am happy to adopt your unwanted polishes. Give me your tired, your weak, your unloved colors If nothing else I find the ones I don't like forever homes.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Barry M, A England, GOSH Cosmetics, and Korean/Japanese polish brands that I can't find around my part of California

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Of course! I have a weakness for eye shadow and eyeliner. So much so I started a blog so I can use all the colors. I like lipsticks but I'm picky. My color is MAC NC20 if you need to be specific.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
Deathly allergic to peanuts, pecans and seafood
After that I'm fair game. I love me some dark chocolate and local candies.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
If you're in doubt, get me a gift card for Amazon, Sephora, and/or Ulta.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Striping tape and a stamping kit would be cool. Why must Moyou be so expensive but those Suki plates are so awesome and my wallet hates me

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
Santa is magic and can be from anywhere.

Are you ok with dongs?
Just keep the dong content inside the box. Otherwise, dong me baby

I live near a few beauty places that sell OPI, China Glaze, and Essie on the regular. I stalk these places regularly. But if you find anything from those brands that you think would tickle my fancy feel free to send it over.

I have a Google spreadsheet that I obsessively keep up to date. The real wishlist here is more like a general idea that the polish listed shows a best example of. Don't be afraid to get creative (dupes, frankens, and whatever).

ALL ABOARD THE BUTT TRAIN

Holy gently caress YES

HERE IS MY UPDATED SPREADSHEET! FINALLY.

Also, I am very likely to be buying myself IB Fiery the Angels Fell, Medusa Transducer, and Moonlight in the next, like, week. I will update here if I go ahead with that.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I'm scared to (I'm in the US, for reference)

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Gooooons (Particularly IB and HM, though I already have like everything of theirs sooo), drama-free and well-reputed indies, A England, Essence (but I already own, like, every Essence colour), ORLY (getting less boring, and I love the formula!), Butter LONDON.

Any polish brands you dislike?
Never thought I'd be saying this, but I'm deep enough into this obsession that I'm pretty well over drugstore brands (Sinful, WnW, Sally Hansen, Revlon, etc). Really though, I don't HATE them. I am just picky now, but if you find something OMGMUSTHAVE of theirs, I will happily use it! No Lynnderella, Rainbow Honey, Lime Crime, or other super controversial brands. Julep, Essie (good formula, but boring colours), OPI, SOPI, NOPI (etc). Oh, also, I work at Sally's and probably already own the entire store by now.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
Roughly in order of jonesin':
+ A England Saint George
+ Nail Pattern Boldness: Slow Invasion
+ Emily De Molly Oceanic Forces, or if that's unattainable, Different Dimension: Drops of Jupiter
+ Painted Sabotage Valthrudnir
+ A England Tristam
+ Nail Pattern Boldess: Hello Sweetie
+ Scofflaw Sturm Und Drang
+ Painted Sabotage: The Impossible Girl
+ Lime Crime Pastelchio and Milky Ways (Regretfully. Do not buy me this. If you already own it and don't want it, then I'd be happy to take it off your hands )
+ Hot Mess Coldcocked (I have a mini, and regret not buying the fullsize when I had the chance)

I'm also interested in trying Duri Rejuvacote, if you have an unloved bottle kicking around!


What are your favourite colours?
Black, teal, navy, grey, wedgwood blue, orange, coral, plum (which I rarely wear), army green, lime green, turquoise, mint green. I'm ALL ABOUT classic art deco colours (but I prefer silver to gold).
I have plennnnnty of all of these in cremes (particularly plum, why do I have so many plums).

As far as finishes go, I like cremes, foils, glitterbombs, jelly glitterbombs, glassfleck, flakie, properly matte glitters (the ones without even a hint of shine/metallic).

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Red, pink, bright blue, bright purple, bright kelly green, yellow, pink, brown, did I mention pink?

As far as finishes: frosts, shimmers, metallics, chromes, anything that leaves brushstrokes (oh my god), glitters that are all one size (especially small glitters) in clear.

Like indies?
Hell to the yes.

Like glitter?
Mothafuckin' hell to the YES. Except hairy glitter. I own one and that is one too many. I particularly like circle, square, and star glitter, other novelty shapes are also rad and I will love them.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
poo poo yeah I am.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Japanese stuff is super cute and I wouldn't mind having more :3 I'm more interested in awesome bottles than necessarily what's in them.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Not terribly. I like chapstick but I am picky and literally have like forty of them kicking about the house.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No grains/gluten (the one exception is rice), no peanuts, I hate coconut (with the exception of Mounds :???: ). Fake sugars (Aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame, erythritol, etc) give me migraines, and I don't like stevia and agave. I'm one picky motherfucker.
I love dark chocolate (none of this Hershey's poo poo. I mean like 70-100% dark - I am a weirdo and will happily eat straight cocoa powder when desperate), mint, hazelnut, and any combination thereof (I will murder a herd of schoolchildren for those Lindt chocolate balls in the hazelnut flavour). I also like coffee.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
I'd much prefer something with a pile of effort involved (most of the fun is seeing what your santa came up with!), but if a GC is on the menu, I'd love one to Sally's, or maybe like Sephora or something? I've never been into one.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I would love some stamping plates. Particularly stars, fishscales, anything art deco or art nouveau inspired, or anything cutesy/halloweeny. I prefer bold and graphic things.
For inspiration, click here. The cute little faces and ghosts and spiderwebs on plates C and D are killing me. Stuff along those lines would be awesome, although I have SUPER TEENSY nailbeds usually, so I don't really need anything gigantic like that. Even XL plates are overkill for me.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
Don't care!

Are you ok with dongs?
I can't fukken get enough dongs. Dong it to me. Give me all the dongs. Or else. (But keep them inside the box, please. We might be moving around that time and I really don't need the landlords happening upon a dongbox before I get to it.)

I don't wanna know.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I was going to say no but international people need nail lovin' too so sure but I would prefer to stay US based.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Indigo Bananas
Zoya
China Glaze
Opi



Any polish brands you dislike?
the stupid NYC stuff that takes a billion layers to show color

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)

More than 10 here but this should give you an idea of my tastes
IB Maui Wowee, The Secret to Life, Shadow, Electric Unicorns
Scofflaw Koi Pondering
Hot Mess Fuego
Hot Mess 99.1%
corset or dress topped bottles like the Nfu Oh bottle and Anna Sui
Nail Junkie Animal Fish (or something that looks like it)
Sinister Benediction JPG
any of those ILNP or Dance Legend multichromes (ILNP birefringence is especially lovely)
Literary Lacquer Bionic Mmmm-Detector from the Good Parts Collection
Ninja Polish 100% Columbian,
Wingdust Collections Steel Town Girl, Fairy Blind
Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure
Essie Shine of the Times

What are your favourite colours?
Teal, blue, green, metallics, burgundy, holo, duochrome, multichrome, flakies. Ok, anything that's not neon, orange, or yellow. Ok?

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
It's not a color but I seriously loathe sand textures. I won't wear neons, yellows, and most oranges.

Like indies?
Love them as long as it's not a glitter vomit with no thought to color. (No Lime Crime, Lynnderella)

Like glitter?
Sure!

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Sure!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Nfu Oh flakies. I have no idea what other brands are international. >.<

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
I'm a sucker for beeswax lip balms and shea/mango/cocoa butter type hand/cuticle creams. I have too much lotion (Bath and Bodyworks sales sometimes suck me in.) If you want to do scented creams, I really don't like floral scents. I'm a reformed BPAL junkie, my go-to scents there are dark vanilla, dark musk, sandalwood, amber, leather. (Just trying to cover many bases here)

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
-no food allergies. Dark chocolate (70%) makes the world go 'round. Licorice is gross. Gummy bears and jelly beans are great.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Sure. Sally's Beauty, Sephora, Etsy.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
maybe stamping plates. I pretty much have any supplies I want or need.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
I don't have a preference

Are you ok with dongs?
I love dongs. I have an envelope of dong confetti hanging on my cork board from an Etsy order I made ages ago because drat, that's funny. They might shock my mail person if they are outside the package, though.

Link to my polish collection. Holy crap do I hate making spreadsheets. Sorry it's so messy. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...Tmc&usp=sharing


Oh. Dear Santa, if your house is a cat haven please try to make a note of that on the outside of the box. That way, I know to open it away from my highly allergic sister who can't wait to see what Santa sends. I don't mind cat hair but it makes her miserable for days.

Disasterrific.

So, I was all panicky that my spreadsheet hadn't been updated since January, but I apparently updated it in June, so that's only half as horrible. I think. You can find it here. I am going to try to update it more. I did update it more! I quite possibly missed a couple, but this is better.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!):
No. Even if I wasn't afraid of something terrible happening to the package, given how much shipping cost me last year, I don't think I could afford international shipping.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Zoya, Butter London, Orly, China Glaze, and Sally Hansen

Any polish brands you dislike?
Lynnderella, Lime Crime, basically any drama-mongering indie...

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
So some of these are like stupid to come by, but it will maybe give an idea of the sort of things I adore?
- Rescue Beauty Lounge - Scrangie (the first one)
- Cult Nails - Unicorn Puke / Clairvoyant
- Illamasqua - Raindrops
- The 2nd line of Color Club holos
- the holiday Color Club that was scented like Gingerbread / Revlon Autumn Spice
- Vintage Urban Decay / Hard Candy
- Essie - For the Twill of It
- Complex Shimmers, is a good way to describe my overall polish color preferences
- Since I haven't bought any Sephora X stuff yet, some of that.
- Looking at my Zoya Aurora again, I don't think it's salvagable, because something is crooked and the bottle won't seal right, so another bottle of Aurora, pretty please?

What are your favourite colours?
Purple, Blue, Teal, shimmer, duochrome, holo

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Red and Orange. Also, I can't wear mattes, they chip within hours, and creme is my least favorite finish.

Like indies?
Sure! Everything but glitters that were made by sweeping off the work counter and putting them into a bottle.

Like glitter?
So much, I'm surprised I haven't become glitter.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Yes, and if it's Vintage UD, I'm okay with receiving rather used polish, as long as there's some left in there for me!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Uhh...Models Own, HITS, A-England, and really adorable asian brands.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Sure. I've got varied tastes, so most of that's way beyond the scope of this swap. BUT. If you find gingerbread lip balm/gloss/anything, I will love you forever. Actually, ginger anything.

I'm sensitive to some scents, so please no floral/fake fresh scented anything, including scented polish, or I might get a migraine. Foody/fruity/spicy aren't a problem, and I enjoy products in those scent families.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No allergies, but I hate anise/licorice and I'm really not fond of lime. My favorite candies are gummy everythings, caramel creams and almond m&ms, but I love trying international or local regional stuff. So if you've got access to a specialty ethnic store, I'd probably love to try the candy. The only thing I've got nearby is a Mexican supermercado.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
I'd prefer polish, but I could easily find a use for a Sephora or Ulta card.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I use Zoya Anchor, Zoya Armor, and Poshe Fast-Dry Top Coat, if any of that needs to be rehomed. Aside from that, some cuticle balm in a chapstick tube would be useful, and if anyone's managed to find a good small jar that I can decant some acetone into and it won't evaporate overnight, I'd love one. And if you luck out into an ELF Disney Villains Ursula kit... Oh, and I suppose I wouldn't mind some Hello Kitty Nail Stickers as long as you don't pay Sephora retail for them.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
Anywhere where the post to me in the US wouldn't be thwarted, but since I'm doing domestic, US is probably the most fair.

Are you ok with dongs?
Yes, but keep them inside the package!

Edit! Dumped barebones of my database to Google, got document:
My obscene (but not PigBoots level) stash and wish lists

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I fear Royal Mail... I was going to say 'I fear they would steal my dongs' but then I realised the sentence was fine as it was. I just fear them. So regretfully not

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
I have well over 100 brands in my collection. Total brand tart... Anyway, my spectacularly-unhelpful-for-UK-folks list:
Indigo Bananas, Scofflaw, China Glaze, Dance Legend, Barry M (but I buy all the Barrys I want cos I pass a Superdrug every day and I'm helpless)

Any polish brands you dislike?
I love Zoya but Zoya does not like me, ditto Essie (which is a shame). Dramarella, other drama-filled indies (tho Lime Crime keeps tempting me...). Really cheapo UK drugstore stuff like Collection2000 or MUA doesn't seem to agree with me (tho 2True and Beauty UK seem to work better)

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
Good question! I keep both my inventory and my lemming list (lemlist? I like lemlist) in a database, so I'll try to dump it to a GoogleDoc and edit this to put a list here.
For the moment, a few I can think of off the top of my head:
- China Glaze 'bat my eyes'
- Marilyn or Minuit from the Dior Golden Winter collection (ha, I wish)
- OPI 'my vampire is buff'
- anything thermal in my colour groups. Dammit I love thermals. But in particular Dance Legend 170 or similar (red-black), I've tried to buy it three times and lost them all

What are your favourite colours?
Blue, green, blue-green (heh), purple. But I do own millions. Also grey and brown. I've been getting more into red and orange recently. Hell, anything except pink!

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Pink pink pink pink urgh. Also coral hates me and wants me to be miserable forever.

Like indies?
Oh heck yes!

Like glitter?
Glitter in a milky or jelly base = win. Clear base glitter, less so - but I can muster enough jellies for sammiches so anything interesting is fine.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Aye

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Good god, millions. Those crazy Russians and their evil chemicals, the Korean piles of weird...

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Very sensitive skin and super-allergies mean I'm unbelievably picky about makeup so I'm afraid not.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
Any nuts (including peanuts and coconut, annoyingly) are liable to kill me. Not a big candy fan, though I might possibly go crazy for fizzy cola bottles... Dark (like, 70%) dark chocolate is my jam really

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Gift cards are cool, especially to places that sell fun indie gubbins (Llarowe, Ninja, Rainbow Connection, Sally Magpies)

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Polish pls, am drowning in supplies (I keep trying to not buy polish and tell myself another stamping plate will be my methodone - never works)

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
UK only, sorry!

Are you ok with dongs?

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)

Yes, I suppose-- rather, I'm willing to order local to you.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?

Color Club (note that I have their entire! holographic line at this time, do not send me more), Nfu-Oh, Cirque, Layla, etc

Any polish brands you dislike?

Rainbow Honey, Crowstoes are the big ones. Basically if they're an indie and you've heard about thick formula issues with them, that is a no.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)

I haven't been paying so much attention in the past few months-- I don't think I've bought from any of the big goon polishteers this year at all even, so those are great places too look.

What are your favourite colours?

Deep, vivacious purple. Not so blue as to be a 'blurple', but definitely not red-purple. I've finally tracked down a blue purple cream though so I'm not looking so much for purples in polish. I like everything.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?

Corals are the big one. Old lady colours like that.

Like indies?

Yes, absolutely.

Like glitter?

Hell yes.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?

Go crazy.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?

Right now Dance Legend springs to mind, especially those multichromes I've seen pictures of, but I love seeing anything you can't readily get your hands on here.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?

Sure.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?

No black licorice, but that's about it.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?

Sure, my favourite shops are Nail Polish Canada or Harlow and Co.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?

I'm set for striping tape but otherwise whatever works.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)

Nah, no preference. If it's cost-effective to directly ship, I will be hand-crafting some amateur polish attempts for you. In addition to commercial stuff.

Are you ok with dongs?

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
Yes! Depending on where they live, I might just get things sent straight to them (seems pointless to spend extra $$ to send to NZ and then back to the US)

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Zoya, OPI, China Glaze, Deborah Lippmann and all the goon indies.

Any polish brands you dislike?
I loathe Chanel; bought 1 bottle, was given the rest. All of them are thick, streaky, go on poorly. Maybe my chemistry doesn't match but, ugh. For like $50 NZD I expect something that's not poo poo. I also have one MAC colour, the formula's pretty bad, but not sure if that's on par for their whole line.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
- Ninja Polish Nebula
- Spellbound Nails Bewitching Old Broads
- KB Shimmer Witch Way?
- Sonnetarium Blueberry Yogurt
- Cirque XX
- Cirque Ophelia
- Sephora X Law of Attraction
Will edit in more as they come to me.

What are your favourite colours?
I tend to lean towards blues, purples, darker reds. Oh, and dark colours.

Any colours you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Not a fan of frosted/ones that leave brush strokes. Pale pink and I do not match at ALL (I guess I could let a creme slide, but definitely nothing else). Probably wouldn't wear something that was bright green (mint is fine though!).

Like indies?
I do!

Like glitter?
Hahaha, yes. Not a big fan of bar glitter, though.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Sure am!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Pretty much all brands are international brands to me, heh. I am interested in trying out KB Shimmer or Cirque though.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Yes, I am beauty obsessed.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No allergies, and I'm really open minded with food and love trying candy that's different to what I'd get here. I do love sour ones though.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Sure! Sephora, Sally's Beauty, Ulta etc. So long as it's redeemable online. I don't live in the US, but I have a lovely friend who does (and is my post mule).

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I wouldn't say no! I only really have CND Stickey and Out the Door by way of supplies. I'd be interested in a dotting tool, also, Indigo Banana's cuticle balm sounds amazing.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
No preference!

Are you ok with dongs?
I don't mind either way, but please keep them limited to the inside.

Here is my pinterest of the colours I own. I will try and spreadsheet it at some point.

Blame user 99 Goddamn Dicks. She was in a previous NPSASS and got dongs in her box along with polish. Suddenly everyone decided that dongs were a great thing to put in future NPSASS. Some people do request to keep the box itself work safe.

Just Canada and the US since shipping is expensive and I am not very rich…

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
China Glaze, Essie, OPI, Goon polishes, I am bad at lists.

Any polish brands you dislike?
Not really, but I will jump on the 'avoid indie drama bombs' train.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
I don’t have a wish list, but I am really interested in right now (which I guess is a whishlist, but it's not formal or anything):
NCLA – Cookies and Gold
A England – Dragon
ILNP – Birefringence or Cygnus Loop
Glitter Guilty – Arsenic and Old Lace (SKULL GILTTERS)
Amys Nail Boutique – Over the Rainbow

What are your favourite colours?
I love blue and purple. But I feel like I should branch out. I do not own a single brown nail polish.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
I will wear any colour.

Like indies?
Yes

Like glitter?
YES

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Definitely.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Nothing especially, I mean I am obviously interested in A England per wish list above, but it's gettable from within Canada so I don't really think of it as international...

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Makeup makes me break out so nail polish is my only way of being pretty

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
A very recently acquired dairy allergy (booooooo!) so nothing with milk or butter. And, I won’t eat anything remotely banana flavour.

Polish, please, unless there is something AMAZING you think I should own.

"(...) it came off as intimidating instead of awkwardly sexy."

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I'd generally prefer not to but if more people need to be matched up internationally I'll do it

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
-A-England
-Indigo Bananas (and all goon polish, really)
-KB Shimmer
-China Glaze

Any polish brands you dislike?
Nothing really comes to mind, honestly

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
In general, I freaking love Halloween and I get realllllly excited by Halloween themed polish, haha.
-Different Dimension Good Evening Clarice & It Rubs the Lotion On Its Skin Oops...
-Cirque Lullaby & Iris
-Indigo Bananas Immortal Game
-Chaos & Crocodiles Fireside Nights
-KB Shimmer Turbulence, Will Yule Marry Me, Snow Much Fun
-Super Black Sweet Tooth
-Crows Toes Christmas Crow & Shoot the Butterfly
-Contrary Polish Creeping Moss
-Dollish Polish Spectral Pup
-A black shred topcoat like Cirque Neko
Side note, I know indies are pricey so know that this list is meant as more of a guideline of what types/looks I'm into right now, not like.. a mandatory shopping list or anything. And I'm totally down with fewer more expensive polishes or mini bottles, I know that's been a source of stress in past threads! Basically don't worry about anything ever, I've never been disappointed about a SASS box and I'm positive this year will be no different.

What are your favourite colours?
Blue, Green, Black, Gold, Purple

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
I veeeeeery rarely wear pinks and reds. Like hardly ever.

Like indies?
Yes! I think I've bought like 1 non-indie polish in the last few months, hehe.

Like glitter?
Love.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
By all means!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
I'll admit those Sailor Moon polish bottles gave me fits, they are so cute. In general I guess I'm not sure, Korean/Japanese polish seems super fun in general but nothing I've specifically had my eye on.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
I'd love to try the Indigo Bananas lemon cuticle balm. I don't wear very much makeup though.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No allergies! I'm moderately obsessed with Cadbury eggs (especially the Halloween ones, they're GREEN). I get along with most kind of candy, really.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Less fun than a package for sure but if my santa has to for whatever reason, sure.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I've got a ton of striping tape but I wouldn't be opposed to more stamping plates, I really want a mermaid scale one or maybe an Asian patterns one.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
No real preference!

Are you ok with dongs?
The real question is would I be ok with NO dongs?

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I'm not afraid of fudging customs forms. (Hello art supplies!) I'll go international.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Indigo Bananas, butter London.

Any polish brands you dislike?
It isn't that I don't LIKE them so much as I have a ton of them already - Sinful Colors. However I don't have anything newer than probably Spring 2013 of theirs.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
Indigo Bananas - Hallucinate
Indigo Bananas - Endless Nights
Scofflaw - Koi Pondering
Scofflaw - Thunder Kitty!
butter London - Indigo Punk
butter London - Petrol Overcoat
butter London - Posh Bird
A-England - Briarwood
A-England - Fated Prince
Sister Benediction - PNG
(check out a full list of wishlistiness on my spreadsheet - look for the Wishlist tab at the bottom. I just went to Sephora's site and found a ton of Formula X that I fell in love with the swatches, all added to the wishlist.)

What are your favourite colours?
Burgundy/Maroons, Blues, Greens, Purples. Pretty much deep gemstone type colors.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Baby pastels, nudes (sans the colors I have on my wishlist) - typically these make my hands look all weird.

Like indies?
I do! Preferably the drama-free kind.

Like glitter?
Do camels like making jokes about Wednesdays? Hell yes, as long as it typically is not bar glitter. (Few exceptions to the rule - see wishlist)

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Absolutely.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
I don't have much experience with internationals. But I'm always open to new experiences!

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Not really. I don't wear much makeup. Lotions/moisturizers are good though!

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
Jalapenos are the big food allergy. Otherwise, I love candy!

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Although I'd prefer polish, I don't mind. I live in BFE, so preferably cards that can be used online are best - I do have a Sally Beauty here, but also would be down with Etsy, Sephora, Ulta, Beauty Brands, etc.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Always am in need of cuticle balm. Also have some stamping plates on my wishlist. Swatching spoons would be welcome as well!

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
Doesn't matter to me!

Are you ok with dongs?
After having seen a male revue this weekend and having the biggest guy decide to shake his bits in my face, I'm more of a fan of dongs in the box (PTSD - the P doesn't stand for Post anymore. :p)

With that, again, here is my stash/wish list - I'm updating plates that I'd like (drat it, Moyou.)... and am on a no-buy until after Christmas, or unless something so amazing I have to have it happens.

I am!

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
China Glaze

ORLY does not agree with me. I want to like Zoya but I haven't been thrilled with the formula so far.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
KBShimmer Witch Way?, A-England Fated Prince, Sleeping Palace, Tess D'Ubervilles, Dorian Gray, Elaine. OPI DS Extravagance, DS Mystery. MAX FACTOR FANTASY FIRE (or a dupe). Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow, but really any large-glitter gold!

Neons, pastels, spring/summer colours. I'm cautious about dusty or desaturated colours with my skin tone -- like I love ChG Fade Into Hue but it is not my colour! Also any kind of textured polish is not for me.

Like indies?
I'd like to! I don't own any.

Like glitter?
I'm dipping my toe into that well.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Honestly I'd prefer it! I'm not married to my 'wishlist' polishes, and would rather something in my palette from a random brand that you're not interested in.

A-England, or if you've a Korean market nearby, MODI.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Not particularly.

All cool colors basically. Also black, brown, grey.

Are you willing to ship internationally? (UK participants, please be fully aware of what this entails!!)
I'd prefer not to but I think I could swing Mexico/Canada.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
OPI, China Glaze, A England, Color Club, Orly

Any polish brands you dislike?
I'd rather not get Wet n Wild/Sinful Colors/Pure Ice type things just because they're so readily available, but if it's a cool color/good formula I wouldn't mind. Oh, and I really didn't like the recent line of Sally Hansen duochromes (the rest of the brand is fine though). EDIT: I feel like a bitch for excluding WnW/SC so I'll amend this to say that I just don't want any cremes from them, but cool shimmer/glitter things are fair game

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)
I'll link my wishlist/stash spreadsheet, but like some other people said, it's in no way set in stone. Mainly they're just things I like that I find while browsing blogs/shops. Use it as a jumping-off point.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...MWc&usp=sharing

What are your favourite colours?
I'll wear just about anything on my nails. Green, blue, red, purple, interesting shimmers (think Orly Rock the World, Zoya Charla, etc), duo/multichromes, pink! I'm looking for a nice, vibrant (not neon) pink - see my wishlist except...

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Poopy greens, pastels, and peachy/light coral (think Essie Haute as Hello) don't look that good on me so I try to stay away, but if my Santa knows THE BEST PASTEL/BABY POOP GREEN IN THE WORLD EVER I SWEAR TO GOD I totally won't complain! Especially peach/coral, I really like the color in general so I'm determined to find a good nail polish.
Oh, but please no crackle/magnetic.

Like indies?
Yes! I own exactly ONE so I'm always interested in trying more.

Like glitter?
Yes please! Especially any unusually shaped glitter - squares, circles (not big on shreds/hearts/stars/etc), I'd maybe even be willing to try a cool bar glitter.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Abso-fuckin-lutely.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
Barry M, Ozotic, Picture Polish (??? maybe?), Dance Legend, Nfu-Oh, weird Asian things. Bring on the death chemicals!

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Sure, I love lip stains/glosses/tinted balms. And fancy hand lotion. I have no sensitivities EXCEPT one time four years ago, my friend and I picked up samples of some C.O. Bigelow lemon body cream and both broke out in awful hives on our legs for 3 weeks. Neither of us had had any allergic reactions until that point, and it might have just been a bad batch, but I've been avoiding anything from that store and most lemon things since. Burt's Bees lemon cuticle stuff is fine though... who knows.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
No allergies, but I hate black licorice and I don't like "old people candy." Favorite candy is everything else - gummies, chocolate, Jelly Belly jelly beans, crazy foreign things - yum.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
I'd prefer polish but if you have to, Ulta/Sephora/Etsy are good.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Cuticle balm/oil (in a chapstick-type package) and striping tape are cool, also rhinestones, and water decals? I don't really know how those work/how much they cost but if it's not too expensive I'd be interested. I was going to say "swatch sticks" but mine just came today!

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
Anywhere!

Are you ok with dongs?

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
I'm open to trying new things!

Like indies?

Sometimes - it doesn't always call to me. Not a fan of the huge chunky glitter (Because I have tiny nails even when they're long!)

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Yep!

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
A England & Pretty Serious.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
I'm trying to find a good perfume. Right now I'm wearing Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. Also, I have a weakness for lip balm as long as it isn't kiwi or mango.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
I'm diabetic so... candy is probably bad.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
Sure! Ulta, Etsy. I live in Phoenix so have a ton of stores nearby.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
Moisturizer is ok. I don't use nail art or striping tape. I finally ran out of my cuticle stuff that I got from Rufus that was so awesome.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
N/A - US preferred

Are you willing to ship internationally? Yes, BUT if there's literally any restriction to my goon/goonette's country, they are getting a gift card and they need to be cool with that.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands? China Glaze, Orly, Essie, Zoya, and, uh, China Glaze? It's worth mentioning twice, I love China Glaze.

Any polish brands you dislike? Just as long as it's not super super chintsy. I'll even take Sinful Colors.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes? (or if you don't have a list, try to give some suggestions please)

-Cult Nails Dissolution
-Sonnetarium Cucumber Salad (or mint to be, I'm not actually sure what the difference even is)
-Essie Toggle To The Top
-OPI Polka.com
-ManGlaze Mink Mitten
-Essie Jamaica Me Crazy
-Manglaze ILF
-China Glaze Snow Globe
-OPI Pirouette My Whistle
-OPI (or China Glaze) matte top coat

If you need more ideas, I have an amazon wish list: http://amzn.com/w/2KLM4FU38F00G

What are your favourite colours? Purple, green, berry. I need a good berry shimmer. Also red and black glitter, if that's a color? I am nuts over red and black glitter. One of my favorite polishes ever is that red and black Spoiled polish. I own a bunch, though, so if you get me one it might need to me semi unique

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear? Orange, yellow, some reds. It is hard to find a pink that doesn't look like rear end on me, the only one I know is that OPI ballet one. I have a lot of pink and brown in my skin (for a white lady anyway), it all clashes!

Like indies? Sure! Just no drama llama ones.

Like glitter? Glitter's cool. I like shimmer too.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish? ... enh? You have to 100% promise there's no finger cooties.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in? A England. I have Saint George and love it. I like the ever coveted Briar Rose, but I don't know if I like it enough to put it on my wish list. After that, I can't even name any, but I probably would be interested in them, yes.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products? I like eyeshadow (brown or purple), eyeliner (green/purple) and bright and bold lip colors. I like ones that touch purple without being purple. I would love a good bold dark wine red to wear, but my lips are chapped 100% of the time so it would have to be something that wouldn't make me miserable.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies? I love anything that isn't peanut butter and chocolate in one.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where? Sure! Anywhere we have in town is fine. Ulta, Amazon or Sephora if you want me to buy polish, JoAnns if you need to feed my cloth addiction.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)? I've never had any sort of stamping stuff, if you want to send me stamping stuff. I suspect I'd like abstract designs and leaves and junk? I'm a musician, I'd probably like little music notes too. I'd also be game to try striping tape.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?) Mars. (I don't really care.)

Are you ok with dongs? As long as you're not sending me a homegrown photo? Dong away. Ship the package in a dong, I'm good.

The finest of all dances.


Are you willing to ship internationally?
I'd rather ship in the US because I am a very poor, jobless student.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?
Orly, OPI, Zoya, Rimmel London, China Glaze

Any polish brands you dislike?
Icing, Finger Paints

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes?
My wishlist can be found here
And here
Of those, the ones I want most are Jinx and Be-witching Old Broads. And everything that might possibly be a dupe of For the Twill of It, including the aforementioned polish. I want all of them because it's a pretty color and I want to do swatch comparisons.

What are your favourite colours?
Salmon. There's a salmon polish that I've gotten at nail salons a few times that I always forget to write down the brand/color name. This was back before nail polish was a hobby, so all of my oldest polishes are attempts at finding this color. I have not yet done so. I wear pinks and blues most often. I like greens, but don't wear them. I love grey.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?
Unless it's a really nice, primary creme, I won't ever wear yellow. And really I only want the primary creme for gradients. My yellow selection is currently SC Unicorn, and I have no problems with that.

Like indies?
Sure! I'm not even particularly bothered by Dramarella, though I do not like Lime Crime even a little bit.

Like glitter?
My favorite color is glitter.
But not bar glitter. It always ends up looking like Muppet-in-a-blender barf.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?
Sure! If it hasn't found a loving home with my SS, it might find one with me. And if it's not something I love, it can always continue down the line of swaps and sales until it finds a forever home.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?
I'm not far enough down the rabbit hole for this. Yet.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?
Absolutely. If anyone has extra snail goo they want to throw at me, I'm all over it. In case of unloved BB cream, I am super pale. Eyeshadows are good, I really like the mineral powder in a jar kind.

Do you have any food allergies/favorite candies?
I'm not allergic to any foods, but I am allergic to nickel. My skin corrodes through cheap metal alloys. I am literally a toxic bitch. In all seriousness, my favorite candy are Sherbet Lemons. Unfortunately, I live on the wrong side of the ocean to buy them.

Would you be open to receiving a gift card, and if so to where?
I'm gonna say no, just because I'd rather open a box of awesome, wonderful happiness than have to worry about making it up to my parents' place where all the good shopping is just to be able to find a store besides our terrible Sally's. That said, if you're stuck and/or totally strapped for shipping, I won't be angry about an Ulta/Sephora/Sally's/Target gift card.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like (moisturizer, striping tape, etc)?
I've got striping tape on the way, but one of those stampers everyone keeps talking up and a stamping plate or two would be pretty cool. Or cuticle cream. I love cuticle cream and will need some soon. I don't have a dotting tool yet, or a good cleanup brush.

Where would your ideal santa live? (Do you have a country preference if you are participating internationally?)
The Mushroom Kingdom? I'm doing US-only, so my selfish desires for Sherbet Lemons cannot color my answer here.

Are you ok with dongs?
Yep. I'm the youngest person in my apartment, and the boyfriend can deal with giant, sparkly dongs if they should find their way into my SS gift.

Are you willing to ship internationally?

Gotta play the budget card this time, so no.

What are your top 5 favourite polish brands?

Zoya, OPI, China Glaze, whatever's on my stash list.

Any polish brands you dislike?

If the formula's terrible I won't like it.

What are your top 10 wishlist polishes?

There's more than ten on it, but here's a wishlist. Don't feel like you have to stick to it though.

What are your favourite colours?

BLUE! Orange, violet, teal.

Any colors you strongly dislike and will never wear?

Dainty pinks, nude creams, those weird muddy green colors.

Like indies?

I support drama-free indies.

Like glitter?

Not the rainbow barf style, but sure.

Are you ok with receiving slightly used polish?

No problem.

Are there any international polish brands you're really interested in?

A England, any Aussies, Nfu Oh.

Are you interested in other makeup or beauty products?

Not really.

I'd rather have items that Santa has picked.

Do you only want polish, or do you have other favorite supplies you would like?

Even with my XL stamper I still haven't gotten the hang of stamping but more plates are cool. Striping tape and other templates would be welcome too.

No preference.

Are you ok with dongs?

Dongs are go.

Not really, although I would be interested in a blush that looks good on pale skin. I've had no luck finding anything that looks natural so I just don't wear much makeup.

e; Too much freedom? I also find that mall stores like H&M, Charlotte Russe, Urban Outfitters, etc. have awesome house brand nail polish with unique colors. If you're having troubling picking out stuff, try popping inside the various clothing shops to check out the selections! Some even have 2for6-2for8-2for10 deals as well.
