Nail Polish Battle 2020: Winner!

Finally I am reaching the end of the 2020 battle!

The last round we ended up with the top three polishes, Jinx, Magma and Eclipse;


For me the first polish to eliminate was Jinx, it is a stunning polish, strong holographic silver.


Choosing between the top two polishes was very difficult! In the end coming in at number two was Magma, I like all of the different autumnal colours the flakies show. Only came second because it is a topper rather than a polish you can wear as is.

 

Which means that the winner of 2020 nail polish battle is ILNP Eclipse. I think it was the first of a kind with its multichrome deep red pigment. It is incredibly distracting when wearing it as it changes colours in different lights, and different finger positions. 2020 was a year that called for distraction and that is why Eclipse won.

Topic Tuesday: Most Precious Polish


I think that my most precious polish is the one I wore when I got married. Didn't cost much but it means a lot to me, Revlon Facets of Fuchsia. I was wanting Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance one but when we went to buy it they didn't have stock so got the dupe instead.

Nail Polish Battle 2020: Top 3

Having completed all of the seven colour categories the following polishes won each round;

Tonic - Jinx // UberChic - If You've Got it Haunt it // Barry M - French Rose // Fancy Gloss - Magma // Danglefoot - The First Avenger // ILNP - Eclipse // UberChic - Say Boo and Scary On

Harder to chose my top three as they were all already up there in favourite tier. Jinx is a very holographic silver polish and the other two are both darker shifty duochromes.

Tonic - Jinx // Fancy Gloss - Magma // ILNP - Eclipse

Nail Polish Battle 2020: Blue



Danny Boy Blue is a true colbalt blue, quite vivid similar to the original Sally Hansen Pacific Blue or Nails Inc Baker Street. No mistaking this for black or even a white, certainly a blue.


Dragons at Dusk is a beautiful duochrome polish, changing from blue to purple, there is also some teal in there too which is nice.


Which means the winner is The First Avenger which is a beautiful metallic primarily blue but a duochrome changing to purple on different angles.

Nail Polish Battle 2020: Purple

I appear to have a thing for purple polishes having 19 new ones in 2020!


Danglefoot - Across the Universe // OPI - Suzi and the Artic Fox // Tonic - Peacock Parade // Tonic - Pegasus Parade // Tonic - Pixie Parade // OPI - Turn on the Northern Lights // Tonic - The Answer is 42 // A England - Lenore // ILNP - Eclipse

This particular battle was difficult to whittle it down to my top three as there are so many beautiful polishes.


Pegasus Parade which is a purple blue duochrome polish, quite shifty and difficult to photograph! There is also some maroon in there too depending on the light and angle.


The Answer is 42 is a duochrome purple blue polish which I struggle to photo, it also has flakies and scattered holographic pieces.


Which means that Eclipse is the winner, this is such a shifty multichrome it was hard to know what colour category to go in. Looks black straight on, changing to red, orange, yellow, beautiful.
