My Favorite NAIL POLISHES of 2010

This blog started off because I had a ton of nail polishes. So therefore I'm going to give them their own spotlight. Again, these polishes may not be NEW or 2010, but they were NEW TO ME in 2010. I'm going going to say much about them because you can read my reviews for my stories.

Regardless of what you purchased and wore this year, I have to say that 2010 was definitely (and FINALLY) the year of the FOILS! As a foil lover, I was in heaven. However, you'll notice that not all foils made my list - I did have some preferences.

In order of when I discovered them, not in order of favorites...

Polishes - Yes, these get to stand on their own... 

In order of when I played with them.

Zoya Reece - Admit it, you're surprised I'm leading with a pink!

Zoya Charla

Sephora by OPI - Leaf Him At The Altar

CND Jade Sparkle Effects Polish

Zoya Drew

Deborah Lippmann Lady Sings the Blues
It's really too bad this came out in the same year as Across the Universe or I think it would have wowed people a lot more than it did. 

Deborah Lippmann Across The Universe
You knew it was coming, right?

Zoya Blair
I had to put this one in because it replaced Divincia for me as my favorite Zoya Red (Metallic... foils is a whole different story)

Zoya Edyta

Zoya Kim

Zoya Kelly
One of the few polishes I wore more than once this year.

Orly Space Cadet
Even though I had chipping issues...

Essie Sew Psyched

China Glaze Riveter Rouge

China Glaze Midnight Mission

China Glaze Zombie Zest

Rescue Beauty Lounge Anne
I know I said Jane was my favorite of this collection but when I think back on it, this is the color I remember the most. Maybe the hype got to me.

Zoya Gloria
I don't understand why Gloria doesn't get more mentions. She was the "Styrch Slayer" of the Fire & Ice Collection. She even topped my "Sarah" in my review. Very underrated.

But in all seriousness, Zoya Fire & Ice gave me my wish: an entire collection of foils in a large variety of colors. And a Sarah to boot... so really, every one of those polishes would be on this list if I felt I could. BEST COLLECTION of 2010 for me!

MAC Bad Fairy

China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses

China Glaze Sugar Plums

Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal

Like I said, not all polishes were new to 2010, but new to me. You'll notice I left off polishes like Chanel Paradoxal. I feel I wasted my money on that one, especially after I got my hands on Zoya Kelly caught my heart. Anyway, did any of your favorites make my list? What were your favorites? Please let me know!
