RAMBLES; How many nail polishes is too many?

Sorry about my absence! I have been sick (stupid Winter!!) and am a very lazy blogger.

Recently I bought some nail wheels for fun so that I can reference back to the colours I own... and choose which one I want to use when I am being picky.
I started painting the nails on the wheels, taking me around 2 hours, and realised I had a lot of nail polishes.

OVER 80 POLISHES! That's why I am asking this question, how many is too many?

I know there are people with 100's of bottles and some with a very small collection. I was shocked I have that I have so many, surely I don't need 6 different types of Coral polish in different finishes?

Considering I paint my nails once a week I have enough for 2 years worth and I am sure I have had some for over 2 years (I hear that's when you should chuck them... or is it 1??). Yet this doesn't stop me from buying more! I bought 3 new bottles just yesterday!

Maybe it is just the hoarder in me (and many many other girls out there) but I NEED those 4 multi-coloured glitter polishes...  What do you think?

JUNE; favourites.

My first Favourites post! Winter (yuck!) is here in Melbourne, which means the bare essentials for me.

SoapGO Pocket Pal Sanitising Hand Gel: I don't usually care for hand sanitisers! I don't go out of my way to buy or use them really... However I saw this at Priceline for $2 and it smells like raspberries so of course I had to get it!

the Balm Frat Boy Blush: My HG blush. This will most likely appear every month. The colour, a peachy pink, is perfect for my light skin. Pigmentation is excellent and with a light hand gives me the most perfect natural flush of colour across my cheeks. 

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 103: A lovely pink rose color that looks natural on the lips. I love the formula of these lipsticks, not too drying compared to other matte lipsticks, and for less than $10 it doesn't hurt my bank account.

Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara: I found this doesn't give me the 'cat eye' look so much, but does do a great job at lengthening and seperating the lashes, which is what I look for the most in any mascara.

Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream: This has saved me so far this winter. I apply this on my face each morning to help my dry skin! It isn't greasy either so it applies well before putting on makeup.

Have you tried any of these products before?
