I'm calling this last installment of my Top 20 the Special Effects Division. It's anything that didn't fit into the first four, and there are some special things here.
Jessica Disco Diva had to be on this list somewhere, and here it is. It bumped GOSH Holographic off the list because it's just a bit more holo-y.
Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure had to be here too. I have other flakies, but this was my first, and I still love it. (Maybe next year it'll move to the Nostalgia Division, or even the Hall of Fame, if I decide I need one of those so I can put more new things on the list. Like Cult Nails Clairvoyant, which almost made it.)
Here is it over Borghese Poema Orchid:
And over Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Café au Lait:
And Sally Hansen Salon Pat on the Black:
My final choice for my Top 20 might be considered a bit of cheat, but it's my list so I'm allowing it: Sally Hansen Salon Effects. I wore these strips nine times this year as of this writing, which I'm pretty sure is way more than I wore any other polish. Not all the designs are created equal, but I've been plenty happy with almost all of them. Here are just a few examples—
Girl Flower was the first design I wore, and they were still going strong on Day 6 of ski trip:
Misbehaved gave me a much neater fishnet than I'd ever be able to achieve with stamping (at least at my current state of skill):
Spun for You went to Disneyland:
Yeah, they're pricey, but they deliver on the promises on the box, and there's always sales and CVS Extra Bucks to get them a bit cheaper.
So there you have it, my Top 20 for 2011. I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store. More holos, I hope! What are your nail polish wishes for the new year?
