Topic Tuesday: Only 10 Polishes from Collection?

With owning over 700 polishes it is difficult to only choose 10 polishes to keep. I think the easiest way to choose would be to look at the winners of my previous nail polish battles where I chose the best new polish to my collection every year for over a decade now. I still can't choose a 10th polish though!

Topic Tuesday: Which Only 10 Polishes Would You Keep?

Choosing only ten polishes from my collection was hard but below are the ones I chose today;

Revlon Facets of Fuchsia - Purple hex glitter.
Fancy Gloss Magma - Autumn in a topper bottle.
Barry M Cotton - Good basic white for nail art.
Orly Synthetic Symphony - Very vivid purple, unique to my collection.
Essie Angora Cardi - Dusty, cozy, warm pink.
OPI Less is Norse - Dusty, mid toned blue.
Barry M Dark Side of the Shroom - Clearly a deep aubergine.
ILNP Eclipse - Very shifty red to black multichrome.
A England In Robe and Crown - Dark purple which is also holographic.
Orly Liquid Vinyl - Good basic black for nails.

Nail Polish Battle: Polish of the Decade (2011 - 2021)

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!

I looked over my polishes and chose these as the top three;

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.

Nail Polish Battle 2017: Winner!

So we left off on the top three polishes of 2017 and today I find out which is the winner.

Holographic Lights // Spirit of the Moors // In Robe and Crown

Firstly is Holographic Lights, which was the first nail polish in sometime from the high street which made me excited for polish again. Not since the days of GOSH and the original Holographic has there been a polish this spectacular so easily available. That said it is too bright to win this particular challenge.

In second place is Spirit of the Moors, a bright blue holographic finish polish. Really vivid and something I always get comments on whenever I wear it. While I have darker blue holographic polishes and lighter ones also this is definitely a stand out. Bright and vivid and stunning, but for me this is too bright to win, I am drawn to darker things.

And so the winner has to be In Robe and Crown, which is the darkest of the three polishes in the top three. It is described as a "dark lavish red garnet resplendent in its prismatic hologram light". It is a deep purple with aubergine and garnet in there, along with the stunning formula and holographic finish you get with A England polishes. This is a polish I would wear as is without adding extra too which is rare for me to do. I love this polish!
