3. Favorite polish finish (pearl, glitter, duo-chrome, matte, etc.)?
4. Nail care: Honestly, when taking down nail length, do you go through the long process of solely filing, or do you sometimes first sneak those clippers out if you are taking down a lot of length (the nail gods won't strike you down if you admit it, although some bloggers might)?
I try to only file, but I do end up using clippers when I'm taking a lot of length off
5. Nail envy: What nail shape do you wish you could pull off but either don't feel you have the guts to attempt it, or know it would, sadly, would never look good on you in a million years?
Maybe oval nails. I used to round my nails off before, but it's not something that's necessary to have for me.
6. Stash: Just to clarify, is there really such thing as 'too much' or 'plenty of polish'? Didn't think so... So... Double digits or triple?
Triple digits. I've added a few since the last time, but definitely in the 200s :/ eek
7. When discussing it with someone outside of the polish community, do you announce said number pridefully or does it embarrass you to say that you actually own that much polish?
I've actually never discussed my polish collection to anyone out of the polish community, but I would announce it semi-proudly haha

I don't have a desire...not yet anyway :)

Interesting. Haven't tried it, but they look nice when done neatly.
