Since 2011 I have gone through my collection and picked out my favourite polish of each year, this post is looking back at the past winners and working out my polish of the decade. I still have all but one of the polishes, Models Own Gun Grey which I used up so excuse the dodgy photo editing!
First of the three to be eliminated is Facets of Fuchsia, only because it is a glitter and I don't like removing those.
In second place is Goth, while I do really like this polish it is very dark and in standard lighting it tends to look black. Whereas in direct light you can tell it is both holographic and deep, deep purple.
Which means the winner of this is In Robe and Crown! This polish is similar to Goth but in all lighting you can tell it is supposed to be a dark purple, when in direct sunlight it has a beautiful holographic flair to it.
This advent calendar has 12 full size polishes of which six are exclusive to the box as well as a surprise behind door 12. Before purchasing I checked what polishes were actually in the set and only two of them were already in my collection.
Colour | Red to Pink base, Red White Glitters Finish | Thermal, Glitter Opacity | Two Coats Brush Type | Flat, Wide, Rounded Cuticle How Much | 15ml Vegan | Yes Cruelty Free | Yes Purchased From | Rainbow Connection
As yesterday was Yule, the Winter Solstice signalling the start of the official winter season in the Northern Hemisphere I thought now would be a good time to share my top five winter polishes. I have done similar blog posts in previous years 2020 (here), 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).
Gold Rush is a straight up metallic gold polish, very vivid but seasonal.
White Moonstone is new to my collection, a white textured polish with a slight sparkle to it. A white is always good for nail art around this time of year, having texture to it is something a bit different.
Candy Cane is another new to my collection polish, it is a thermal going between light pink and red with red and white glitter pieces. Almost like nail art in a bottle.
Icicle is a silver holographic bar glitter with micro glitter particles in it. For me this might be more New Year appropriate but anytime in December holographic polish would work.
Finally Proserpine, which is a darker green holographic polish. Green is a shade I lean towards in December, as this is holographic is adds something extra to a cream green.
