2014 Favorites Part 1

It's time to talk about the year in review!  I wore and photographed almost 400 polishes this year and while I loved soooo many of them, I tried to narrow down the highlights to one each of a few of the brands I really like. There will be 20 total and I'm breaking them into four posts, in alphabetical order by brand. So here we go after the break...

Bear Pawlish Bathory. This is a strong candidate for the favorite polish I have worn. As in ever. Haha! It is a glowing candy apple red with fine linear holographic. Three thin coats.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer You Just Want To Mate?! was from the It Got Away From Me, Yeah... Collection, The Women Of Dr. Who Collection. This has old, orange, and red shimmer flecks in a firebrick red jelly base. Three thin coats. *sent by the maker for photography and review*

Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Kinsukuroi is probably my favorite of all time from the brand. It is particularly special to me as it reminds me of the part of my childhood spent in Japan, with all the gold leaf on the temples and decorative arts. This linear holo gold foil works as both a full coverage polish or a top coat. I'm wearing it here with four thin coats. *sent by the maker for photography and review*

Colors By Llarowe All Bidness is a true classic. It has a strong linear holo in a rich black base, with prominent gold flakes. This was originally from the Redneck Woman Collection of 2013 and it is shown here with three thin coats.

Dainty Digits Polish No Way! is one of the brand's Color-Morphosis shades. It works both on its own or as a topper and shifts from sage green to violet. I know there are tons of multichrome holos out there right now, so it is hard to find one that stands out - this does! All of the polishes I have tried from the brand have been excellent but this polish was a special treat.

Click on each of the shop names above has a link to the brand's main shop. I will be back tomorrow with more 2014 highlights!
