Favorite Polishes & Manicures of 2011

January 13th, 2012

It may be a little late, but I wanted to go through the posts of last year and list my favorite polishes of the year. It’s quite a mix of new and old polishes, cheap and pricey. The images link to the original posts if you want to take a closer look at something.

So, here they are, in no particular order, my top 10 favorite polishes that I’ve worn in 2011.

China Glaze – Skyscraper:

Gorgeous gorgeous blue glitter.

OPI – The Show Must Go On:

A beautiful duochrome with a great name.

China Glaze – DV8:

Teal and holographic, can it get any better?

Chanel – Péridot:

My most expensive polish so far, but I totally think it was worth it.

Lovie – No 93:

A nice and cheap red/coral polish, it’s perfect for summer.

KleanColor – Metallic Pink & Metallic Purple:

Two in one image here, these are so beautiful, although the pink one did leave a stain.

Orly – It’s Not Rocket Science:

This one had me totally mesmerized, it’s a fantastic duochrome.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps:

I finally got my hands on this red classic!

Isadora – Jaded:

A beautiful creme polish. And oh my, I’ve almost forgot what my nails looked like a year ago!


And then I also wanted to list a few of my favorite manicures as well, so here are 5 of my favorite manicures containing more than one polish.

Space nails:

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise… Oh sorry, I got lost there for a while =) I’m too lazy to write out what polishes that where used, you can find it in the original post.

Nfu Oh #48 on top of KleanColor Metallic Black:

Mmm… Flakies… Seems we’re gonna see a lot of this in 2012, and I welcome it!

KleanColor Mango and some Konad with China Glaze Harmony:

When I first did this manicure I wasn’t sure if it was awful or just really cool. In the end I leaned towards the latter =)

China Glaze White Cap on top of IsaDora  Dazzling Ocean:

It doesn’t look that good in the photos, but it was lovely IRL! I will definitely try out more combinations with White Cap this year.

Nfu Oh #50 on top of Orly Galaxy Girl:

More flakies, I love this combination! Nfu Oh #50 is probably my most used flakie polish.

I was hoping to have time to do a holo Friday post for you, but you will have to do with this old crap for now =) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

      I hope you get the chance to try them out, of course there are probably other flakie polishes to get now, but I just love the bottles!
