So I gathered all of the winning nail polishes from the previous rounds;
OPI - My Silk Tie // China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy // Leighton Denny - Heat Wave // Barry M - Sparkling Ruby // Barry M - Forest // Dark Metal Lacquer - Turn Loose The Mermaid // Kiko - 255 // OPI - Give Me Space
Looking a the polishes I was able to eliminate half of them bases on which I had worn more over 2015. During the summer I had a orange moment where I ended up getting a couple of oranges. The other three were more predictable for me.
However I had to eliminate two;
In the top two were Barry M Sparkling Ruby which came out just in time for the festive season, and a first for the gelly collection in that it wasn't a straight up cream finish.
But the winner for this year was Kiko 255, a beautiful dark purple polish packed with multi coloured holographic micro glitter. Very almost galaxy nails in a bottle. A beautiful polish which was a bargain at less than £4 a bottle.

The first two were easy to eliminate, the Glamour polish isn't very pigmented and needs 3-4 coats to build up opacity. Sink in to Mink is a great nail art base but on its own isn't that special.
Hot Under The Collar is quite a vibrant orange with a glass fleck finish. More a delicate orange compared to the straight up neon Flip Flop Fantasy.
In the top two are Nails Inc and China Glaze.
Star Street is a pale peach colour, a soft delicate kind of shade which would get a lot of wear in spring. The brush on these polishes are great as well, flat and wide with a curved end so it easily fits against the cuticle.
All that said the winner for me is Flip Flop Fantasy, a bright neon orange. Very hard to get a colour accurate photo of! There are a couple of incarnations of this polish, not sure which this one I have is, however it isn't the first one. One I think would be great for the summer.

In the top three of this category are;
OPI Desperately Seeking Sequins, a very sparkly glitter with holographic hex glitter and bar glitter
Tara's Talons - My Tangle. How could I not have this one, it is a custom polish the lovely Tara created for me based on a polish I had been wanting for years but could no longer find it to buy it.
However the winner is this beautiful duochrome glitter polish which looks green in the bottle but on the nails it is green, blue and purple. Turn Loose The Mermaid, gorgeous!
