I wanted to do a kind of "year in review" post but to do a year's worth of manis would take, well, a year! So I thought I would share some of my favorites I did this past year.
One of my favorite manis of this year had to be the one I did in honor of one of my all time favorite tv shows, Breaking Bad. Rainbow Honey released a limited edition polish - Heisenberg and I jumped at the chance to purchase this bad boy!

Speaking of Rainbow Honey, I had purchased the mini set of The Summer of 199X Collection (which is amazing!) and decided to pair it up with Nails Inc. Beaded Polish:

Next up is Lynderella The Stars In Her Eyes over Pomegranate Nail Lacquer Taps on Apps and Prince Charmer:

Back in September, I did a mani for my husbands birthday, it combined two polishes that were special to me because of him:

I know there is a theme here going of all blues...hmmm... when did I become a blue-aholic? Can't help myself, something switched in my brain. Can't get enough of the blue polishes! I did love this pink mani that I did earlier this year though. Who doesn't love Ozotic holos?
Pink has always been my favorite color and this pink holo is just gorgeous! It's Ozotic 516 which is a medium bright pink with a linear holo finish. I'm 99.999% sure it's discontinued but am so glad I own it, it makes me happy. I actually used this shot on the Instagram account of my sister's jewelry company whose web site I maintain. Yes, I get to photograph and keep the jewelry, a great perk of the job. ;) Shameless plug - if you want to see some great jewelry at some great prices, visit her at orionfashionjewelry.com. I should also mention if you are a blogger and are interested in blogging about her jewelry, get in touch with me, I can set you up.
Contrary Polish is a polish collection that I have had in my stash all year and had been wanting to try and finally got a chance with this mani:
By far my most special and dear to my heart polish of the year had to be the one that was custom made for me by the fabulous Kunimitsu Nail Potions:
This list is just a tiny fraction of the special polishes I wore this year. I left out some of my other favorites like Different Dimensions, Jindie Nails, Polished by KPT, Enchanted Polish.... oh the list goes on! Be sure to follow me on Instagram where at least there I try to keep up to date. LOL
And on that note, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year! And I look forward to all the new and exciting polishes that await us in 2014!
All the best,
