I don't have an extensive collection, but I'm not kidding myself... at 320+, it's pretty dang big.  I have a bad problem with "oooh, that looks pretty... I NEED it", and then I either haul or order it on eBay.  I guess I have issues with restraint.  LOL. 

You'd think I'd have no problem picking a color, but having this many polishes kind of makes my brain short circuit and I sometimes end up not wearing anything.  :/  So, I'm opening it up to suggestions.  I have a spreadsheet of my stash (like on the right), and if there is something you'd like to see, just reply to this post, to a current post, or shoot me an email

My next mani is to create a konad design using Up and Away polishes as the stamp colors, but beyond that, I'm pretty open.

I've been lemming Vampire State Building by OPI. I have Revlon's Vixen, which is supposed to be a dupe. I also have Misa Love Bite and Misa Stiletto, Avon Tweed, Clinique Black Honey Velvet, and Diamond Cosmetics Naughty Intern. I love them all, but wonder if I still need Vampire State Building. :) Would it be possible to post a comparison of VSB with one of the polishes I listed, or another readily available vamp red creme so I can see if I still need to track down VSB? Thanks!!

Teresa, the only one I have of the ones you listed VSB. I've heard that it's dupish to OPI Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ, which is from OPI's 2005 Chicago Collection, and from what I understand, it's still readily available. Honestly, and I know this is no help when you have a major lemming, I wasn't that impressed with VSB. It didn't have a nice sheen to it, IMO. I've been meaning to pick up Misa Love Bite and Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ, so I can do that at my next haul (probably when the Orly Sweet collection comes out), though looking at swatches online, I think Love Bite is a little lighter than VSB. The only one vampy creme I have in my collection is OPI All A-bordeaux the Sled, and it's too dark.

I will reswatch VSB for you, though. Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance when I tried it before.

As for finding VSB... don't give up. I found mine on eBay for $10. I really wished I loved it, so I probably need to give it another chance. :)

Thanks, Megan! :) I'm excited to see your new swatch, and especially to see the comparison to Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ. :)
