Best of 2011...part one.

Argh I had such a hard time narrowing down my favourite polishes of 2011 to just 20. I started off with a pile of 60 odd...there have been some awesome polishes released this year.

I somehow managed to get it down to 20, so lets take a look t my favourite shimmers, glass flecks and holo's of the year.

Zoya Neeka
 Neeka is a stunning purple with awesome flecky shimmers. Very flattering and just plain awesome to be honest.

Essie Brazilliant
 Brazilliant was my favourite orange of the year. Bright and vibrant with a smidge of pink shimmer. I wore this one to the beach boxing day and it was perfect.

OPI I Eat Maine-ly Lobster
 I love a good coral, specially one with some hidden shimmers. I Eat Maine-ly Lobster may be an unusual colour for a Fall Collection but I'm glad OPI put it out.

Orly Oui
 Oui is one sexy shimmery purple/gold. Oui was my favourite polish that followed the heavy gold shimmer trend. Oui is slightly more purple than OPI It's My Year and in my books prettier.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso
 Piu Mosso is one sexy polish. Dark Navy with cooper shimmer...enough said to be honest.

Revlon Royal Cloak
 I wasn't sure I needed Royal Cloak but when I saw it at Farmers I just had to have it. Glad I bought it. Royal Cloak is an incredibly flattering purple and it has flecks.

China Glaze Blue Years Eve
 Blue Years Eve is amazing. Yes it's fairly close to Blue Iguana and Drink' My Blues Away...but it's deeper and more vibrant somehow... Nick even commented on how awesome the colour was. He never comments on my nails unless the colour is highly awesome. I plan on painting Blue Years Eve on my nails soon as I get up to celebrate the New Year...

China Glaze Glitter Garland
 Glittering Garland is another winner from China Glaze. I'm not normally into green, but Glittering Garland had me wanting to wear green every day leading up to Christmas. It's such a flattering and pretty polish.

Glitter Gal 3D Holo Silver
 Ok so Silver may not have been released this year, but it was made accessible this year for a lot of people and I was luck enough to review it. OMG it's the best silver holo I have. Look at the freaking rainbows.

a-England Tristam
Tristam is amazing. Deep blue with holo Oh did I mention the formulae is amazing. I'm in love.

There you have it the first 10 polishes in my top 20 for 2011. Please remember this is just my opinion. Love my opinion or hate it? Let me know! 

Look out for the cremes and glitters will be coming tomorrow.
