Year in Review - Top 25 Polishes of 2015

Hello lovely readers!  For my last post of 2015 I will be sharing my top 25 picks for polishes released in 2015.


Before I share my picks, please know:
  • The polishes are listed in alphabetic order
  • The polishes are a reflection of my personal taste and only include those that I was able to get my paws on
  • The list was created just for fun
Absolute Zero by DIFFERENT dimension - This polish is holo nude perfection (originally reviewed here).


Babewatch by Delush Polish - This is my favorite neon polish with a twist (originally reviewed here).


Ce-less-tial is More** by OPI - This is a great textured polish from a mainstream brand (originally reviewed here).


Copper Pot by SinfulColors - A lot of great gold and silver polishes were released this year but no one delivered a copper as nice as this one (originally reviewed here).


Crown of Queen Elizabeth by Octopus Party Lacquer - This polish is understated spectraflair awesomeness.


Doomfire by Baroness X - This is a beautiful purple jelly with a warm pink microshimmer that glows from within.


Dreamer by F.U.N Lacquer - This indie does microglitters like no other and this beautiful polish is a prime example.


Frost by M Polish - This polish not only features beautiful microflakies, but it also stamps like a champ.


Hero's Come by Arcane Lacquer - This polish features opalescent flakies in a tarnished silver base (originally reviewed here).


I Cannoli Wear OPI** by OPI - This is one of several great nudes that OPI released this year (originally reviewed here).


It's a Piazza Cake** by OPI - I love this warm brick orange and the formula is very nice (originally reviewed here).


Long Walks by ILNP - This is probably my favorite nude in my collection.


Masked Affair by L'oreal - There was a lot of buzz surrounding this mainstream holo, but it was all well deserved in my opinion.


Naughty and Iced by Wet N Wild - I love everything about this polish; the color, the texture, and the application (originally reviewed here).


Open Water by Reverie Lacquer - The pop of yellow and orange against the blue jelly earned this polish a spot on my list (originally reviewed here).


Pathos by DIFFERENT dimension - I love the uniqueness of this full coverage glitter.


Pumped Pink by Shine Spark - This is the best pink neon creme in my collection (originally reviewed here).


Retrograde by  DIFFERENT dimension - This polish started my obsession with brown holos (originally reviewed here).


Rubidium Rhod by Indigo Bananas - I did not know that red neon was a thing before this polish (originally reviewed here).


Sleeping Under the Stars by China Glaze - This deep purple with red shimmer is absolutely captivating (originally reviewed here).

Something Strange by Bear Pawlish - This is my favorite Bear Pawlish to date (originally reviewed here).


What in Carnation? by Cupcake Polish - This polish is teal and holo. Of course it had to be on my top 25 list (originally reviewed here).


Where My Ho Ho Hos At? by Wet n Wild - I hate the name but I love the polish (originally reviewed here).

Wood You Wanna? by China Glaze - This polish also has it all; great formula, great color, and great finish (originally reviewed here).


Worth a Pretty Penne by OPI - I love the color and uniqueness of these metallic shimmer (originally reviewed here).



I wanted to end by thanking my readers, fellow bloggers, and makers who I have worked with this past year. I had a blast and I look forward to a wonderful 2016.

Thanks for reading,
