The Polished Hippy's 2019 Favorites Part 2

Nail Hoot Indie Lacquers Lion Whisperer is pretty much the perfect gold holo - not only is it super linear and metallic, but it has a tiny bit of duochrome shift. Add a quick-drying formula and I am in love! This appeared in Polish Pickup At the Carnival August 2019.

Nailed It Polish Never Forgotten was part of the Alzheimer's Awareness 2019 Duo with Wildflower Lacquer. Not only is it a charity polish for an important cause, the vibrant purple seems to glow from within via its multichrome shift. Gorgeous!

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Wasteland from the Love Nikki: The Seven Nations Part 1 is one o the brand's classic jelly holos. I am always keen on neutral polishes with a kick, and the little complimentary copper flecks in this one are so special.

Orosa Beauty Midnight is from the Fall 2019 Set. The brand specializes in cremes and generally pretty spectacular ones! Midnight was a standout because I love navy-type deep blues.

Paint It Pretty Polish More Love Less Paperwork was from the Valentine's Day Trio 2019. This magenta has so much fire to it thanks to a gorgeous contrast shimmer and sprinkle of holo.

Peachtree Polish Masked Parade from the Polish Pickup At the Carnival August 2019 was one of my favorite blue polishes of all time. Look at the vibrancy and depth of that base! The holo and red flakes make it look like gemstones on your nails.

Quixotic Polish Extraordinary Jelly Beans was from the Fandom Flakies Box August 2019 The Office. The brand had a really standout year, but this is a particularly amazing polish. Red, ultra-holo, and flake-filled? Be still, my reddish rainbow heart!

Riverwood Apothecary included a Sea Salt Hand & Foot Scrub in the Mother's Day Indulgence Set with Rogue Lacquer. I got to try the scent Botanical Garden and I love its fresh, garden-earthy fragrance. The best part? Its fine pumice abrasive was particularly effective at clearing my hands of flakes and the oils in it left them silky smooth.

Rogue Lacquer does jelly flake polishes like no other, and Mind Flayer from the Stranger Things Creepy Crawlers Duo is a perfect example. Beautiful fast drying formula and tons of flash. I can't wait for more!

I've been wearing Sally Hansen polishes for over 30 years now, but have a particular affection for the vampy sort of reds from the brand I wore in the mid-1990s. Miracle Gel 474 Can't Beet Royalty brings me right back, with the perfect brown tinge and slightly jelly-like, shiny look.

Seventy-Seven Nail Lacquer Nearly Lost You from the 2019 Small Batch Birthday Releases is pretty much the perfect green jelly holo. Tons of linear shine, juicy jelly texture, rich shade, and perfect formula. SO much love!

Starlight Polish Slate Fire from the By Request Collection was a hard choice. I wanted to pick so many different shades from that release, but had to settle down on this one because of the unique and strong gray-blue jelly base. So interesting and unique! But it was a hard pick and you should check them all out!

The Soapy Chef had so many nice products this year, but my heart had to go to the brand's signature product, soap! I always use indie soap in my soap dishes, and this one lasted so long without losing its lather and the citrus scent of Citrus Bomb was delicious. What a hit!

Zoya Nail Polish ZP884 Everly is one of the brand's magical flake holo jellies from the Winter Holos Collection 2018.  I always get beyond excited when they release them and this is a red, so I gotta love it. Here's to hoping for more Zoyas in this finish in 2020?

That concludes The Polished Hippy's 2019 Favorites! These posts don't include all the things I loved, just the stuff I got photographed and on the blog.
