We're getting closer to the end of the year and I thought it would be fun to do 2 top 10 posts, one with polishes and one with nail art, and here's the first! 2012 did make me think "haven't we seen this before?" fairly often, but there are plenty of gorgeous and unique polishes as well, and picking just 10 wasn't easy at all! Some of my favorites didn't come out this year though, and loads of them aren't in my stash even, so that made the sorting a bit easier already :)
Sorting them made me look back at the nice changes to standard assortments (especially from Essence and Catrice), some great collections (like the A England The Legend collection, it felt like everyone was excited about it and loving it) and sparkly Indie glitters (this year had so many new Indie brands!). And now I'm clueless what to put on my nails, I saw so much that I want to wear again =D
So here we have it, in random order, my top 10:
I recently got it and it might look a bit bland in this list, but I'm loving it. It makes an excellent base for purple/pink/brown/silver colors (and perhaps some more even). It's one of those colors that seems to adjust to whatever you use with it, for example using a purple makes the purple show more in MVFK, as you can see here as well.
On a sidenote, both purples that I used as base here are from the China Glaze ElectroPop collection, which is one of my favorite collections from 2012 because they all make such great bases for nail art ♥
Now you saw my favorites, and if you feel like sharing, I'd love to hear what yours are as well!
Thanks for looking and take care :)
