Top 10 Polishes of 2011
So in my little end of year round up, I thought it would be fun to pick out my favourite polishes that have been released this year.
It was actually a really hard task as I only got back into polish this year, so everything I have has technically been bought this year. Also, whilst it’s really easy to track the collections of the big brands – Zoya, OPI – I have found it harder to work out when some of the US drugstore polishes like Wet n Wild and Sally Hansen were released, so for that reason alone, the list is brand heavy.
I *think* these have all been released this year, but may be wrong on 1 or 2. Either way, these are all classics, and are in no particular order. Where I have also done a blog post, you can follow the hyperlink.
Enjoy ! xx J
A-England – Lady of the Lake
Unbelievable polish. Superb brand, application and quality. A smokey purple holo dream of a polish.
A-England – Guinevere
Another A-England masterpiece, this one a serene swirl of lilac bliss.
Glitter Gal – Red
Glitter Gal’s red holo is my favourite red holo of them all – so far! Superbly fine in it’s particle size, this is a red-holo lover’s dream.
Wet n Wild – Tangled In My Web
This is the year I discovered glitter, and yet my favourite glitter of all isn’t even glittery. I totally fell in love with the simplicity and gothicness of this amazing drama queen.
OPI – Planks A Lot
Superb application, looks like a pearl, fabulous lilac.
Orly – Fowl Play
Aka when Orly duped OPI’s Merry Midnight …. But better J
Zoya – Neeka
a lovely dusty gold-flecked purple ....
Fashionista Magnetics – All Fired Up Red
Magnetics were THE discovery of the year – so far, this is the only brand I know of brave enough to do a red … and pull it off.
LA Girl – Glitter Addict – Celebrate
THE perfect purple glitter. Amazing, just … wow.
OPI – Animal-istic
My unexpected favourite of the Muppets Collection – a multi-textured triumph.
