What basecoat do you use?
Um... I don't.  Well, normally, I don't.  And then I get irritated when my nails get stained blue.  When I do wear a basecoat, it is CND Stickey.

What topcoat do you use?
Unlike with a basecoat, I always wear a topcoat, even if the polish itself is even and shiny, and finding the perfect topcoat has been an issue for me.  I'm one of the rare people that can't stand Seche Vite.  I waffled between various topcoats until I discovered 2 that work well for me.  Those two being Sally Hansen Insta-Dri and Nubar Diamont.  I alternate between the two.
What do you use on your cuticles?
Another struggle for me.  I finally discovered Dermalect Rejuvenail Fortifying Nail and Cuticle Treatment and I use it several times a day.  Finally, my cuticles and the skin around my nails is soft and not cracked and ragged.  Rejuvenail is expensive, however, so when I am in-between jars, I simply try to keep my hands moisturized.  I will use a variety of lotions but my favorite is OPI Avo Juice Jasmine.

Also, I have thick cuticles, so I while I do push them back with an orange stick and use cuticle remover, I also have to clip them with a nipper about once a week.

What nail polish remover do you use?
I use Sally Hansen Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover for general use.  However, if I am removing glitter or if I am stamping, I use straight acetone nail polish remover.  

What is your favorite nail polish color?
I love a good red creme, or even a saturated pink or purple, but when I reach for a color to make me happy, I always reach for a blue creme.  I also am a glitter whore and love holos more than my kids.

What is your favorite nail polish of all time?
OPI My Private Jet holo.  It was the first polish that a splurged for on eBay and I don't regret it.  Nothing comes close to it, IMO.  Behind that is another holo, OPI DS Desire.  

Why do you label your pictures?
I try to not let the label on my picture get in the way of the swatch on my nails.  I label simply for easy indentification, both for when you search for a swatch via a search engine and for myself.  Labelling makes them super easy for me to know which polish is which when I am posting a collection review.  Plus, I just think it looks pretty.
