Topic Tuesday: Best Toppers

Best polish that can also be worn as a topper, for this prompt I think Lumen Crystal Cave it can be worn as is but also as a topper which is how I prefer it.

Nail Polish Battle 2021: Glitter, Flakie, Shimmers

Now that it's December, it's time for my annual nail polish battle. I find it interesting to look back over the year at the new polishes I have acquired and seeing which ones are my favourites.

Since last years nail polish battle I have 78 new nail polishes which is ten more than last year. Today I am looking at the new 11 glitters, flakies and shimmers.

Bow - Blinder - Flash // Nail Artisan - Nobody Move! // Polish Me Silly - Glow Girl // Polish Me Silly - Glow For It // Polish Me Silly - Candy Glow // Models Own - Dove // Models Own - Duck // Models Own - Swan // Lumen - Crystal Cave // Cure Nails - Disco // Emily de Molly - Deadly Secret

Choosing my top three wasn't too difficult;

Polish Me Silly Glow Girl - I spent a good few months at the beginning of the year looking for a dupe for a purple, blue clear flakie polish I had seen and liked. Finally saw this one was in stock and it met my flakie need.

Emily de Molly - Deadly Secret is a black shard glitter in a clear base, something unique, I got more recently for Halloween based nail art. I've seen a lot of spooky polishes that have shard glitter in them, rather than buying a lot of different polishes buying a topper means can use with polishes I already own.

Which means that Bow Blinder Flash is the winner of this nail polish battle. The finish of the polish looks like a standard glitter but when a light is shining on it the polish glows. Flash reactive, similar to cat eyes on the road which is a very unique finish polish to my collection.
