Top 15 polishes 2011 - top 5!

Welcome everyone, and happy new year! Did you enjoy New Year's Eve? I spent it with my mother, father, grandmother and her boyfriend, and my boyfriend at Hotel New York in Rotterdam. It was to celebrate the 25th anniversary of my parents marriage

Yaaay time for the polishes I loved most in 2011! Again, both bought/released polishes count for me, let's see what made it to the top shall we?

#5 - BeYu Brilliant Shiraz
BeYu Brilliant Shiraz really received quite a buzz after being showcased at The Swatchaholic, suddenly I noticed everyone was trying to get their manicured paws on this pretty. Including me obviously! Luckily I found the good version of BeYu 209 (inci 31) in a Douglas here and this is one of the layered results.


























#4 - Catrice Drama Queen
The darker version of China Glaze Midtown Magic. Very very darkbrown base with stunning shimmer. Good application, friendly priced.. perfect drugstore release!
































#3 - a england Perceval
Yes, more a england! Red is one of my favorite polish colors. I might not own as many as other colors, but it always makes me feel sexy and sophisticated wearing a red polish. This stunning metallic version by a england is by far the prettiest red (non glitter) polish I have ever seen. Glowy, superb application.. LOOOOOVE EEEEET!





























#2 - Models Own Aqua Violet
On of the most anticipated collections this year was Beetlejuice by Models Own. I know it was a let down for some you (I wasn't as blown away as expected either) but Aqua Violet really surprised me. Great duochrome, good wear, and just so pretty!





























#1 - Chanel Peridot
Best. Polish. This year. Period.
Seriously, this isn't something bought easy as we all have some trouble shedding out a large amount of money for one polish (I could have bought 12 Essence Colour & Go polishes for this money!) but Péridot was sooooo worth it to me. The color shift, the application, the quality. All perfect. A perfect and to me unique polish which I adore so much. It stamps good too ;).

  11. I agree with you that Peridot should get #1st place... I'm surprise it didn't make it on a lot of top of 2011 lists... maybe because of its expensive price tag ;)
    The first two you featured are sooo drool worthy!
