Alli’s Top 10 Polishes of 2014

Alli's Top 10 of 2014It’s that time again for my absolute favorite post of the year. I love looking back at all the fantastic polishes released during the year.

This year’s list is interesting. Last year not a single OPI polish made my top 10 list; this year OPI has 2 polishes on the list. Goes to show a year can make a big difference!

I have 2 rules for my top 10 list; 1. only polishes released during the last year can be included and 2. I don’t include any that have easy to find dupes but I do include them under the honorable mentions section. You can find my top 10 and a few other things under the jump.

If you want to take a walk down nail polish memory lane check out my top 10 lists from 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010.

Make sure to leave a comment with some of your favorite polishes from 2014!

Winter 2015 Must Have Polishes

Winter 2015 Must Have Polishes Oh my goodness y’all, it’s the first day of winter. This is bad news because that means it’s going to start getting cold.

Iron Bowl 2014 Manicure

Beat Bama nails It’s hard for me to believe the 2013 Iron Bowl was a year ago. I was in Jordan-Hare Stadium when Chris Davis ran it back 109 yards and the ground literally moved.

1960’s Nails

1960's Nails I find nail polish trends to be fascinating. I did a post on 1920’s nails when The Great Gatsby film came out and enjoyed reading about what was considered in at the time and why. My foray into 1960’s nails didn’t come due to a film but because of Halloween. This year I went as […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Madame X, butter LONDON Royal Navy & butter LONDON Lucy in the Sky bottles Every summer my obsession with all things nautical comes roaring back. This summer has been no different.
