2014 Favorites Part 3

It's time for Part 3 of my 2014 favorites! This post has some lovely, sophisticated earthy tones and purples. Check them out after the break...

Marbles For Polish Sentinel was from the brand's fall release, comprised of four lovely holos. Shannon's shimmer holos have blown me away this year, but this one was especially stunning, worn here with three thin coats! Marbles For Polish was one of my most-worn brands in 2014 and I love the quick-drying, easy formulas.

NailNation 3000 It's A Holo State Of Mind... So hard to chose my favorite from Maria, because so many of her polishes are downright magical. I finally had to pick this one because it is really different and versatile. I love golds, browns, and greens, and this is a bit of all of those at ones, plus it is super holo. I would call it a pale olive. It works as both a full mani, here with four thin coats, and as a topper. The brand's base dries super-fast and shiny so it is great for days when you don't have a lot of time for polishing. *I won this as a giveaway prize*

Northern Star Polish Immortal Kiss is a particularly great example of Kristen's subtle and sophisticated finishes. I will always remember putting this on then setting out for a night drive, realizing that my nails looked exactly like the sky! It has scattered holographic and subtle duochrome purple-to-green shimmer in a black-burgundy jelly base, and I wore it with four thin coats. *sent by the maker for photography and review*

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Homeward Sound was in the Nordic Winter Duo with Carpe Noctem Cosmetics. It is a rose-gold linear holo with gold flakes and can be worn on its own in 2-4 thin coats, or as a topper. Just stunning! Dave is not only a hoot, but he is a talented polish maker who is coming up with some unique and gorgeous finishes. His winter duos with multiple brands were a smash hit!

Ooh La Lacquer is another long-time favorite of mine - I've been a customer for over two years now! While it was also hard to pick a favorite from Nastassia's offerings, I settled on Glen Cocoa because it is such a stunning taupe holo - quite the rare beast! This was four thin coats, and it had a perfect formula that dried quickly.

I've got one last favorites post for you tomorrow!  As on the last posts, you can click the shop names for a link to their stores.
