I can't believe it's 2013 already. To think I finished high school in 2003...
I feel so old, yet I know I'm not old at all.
Anyway... I'll reminisce latter. This post is all about my favourites of 2012.
Over the next few days I have four posts lined up.
My favourite 'mainstream' polishes.
My favourite 'mainstream' collection.
My favourite 'indie' polishes.
My favourite 'indie' collection.
Today I have my favourite 'mainstream' polishes to share.
2012 was a fabulous year for polish and I found it incredibly hard to narrow down my list... so I chose 20 of my favourites. The criteria was polishes I've worn more than once and couldn't live with out!
These are in no particular order, I love them all.

Blue holo... no explanation needed!
Ho-ho-holly filled the green gap in my jewel tone foil collection.
I had to include a magnetic! Is That Silva? is my fave. Diagonal magnet, strong contrast and holo sparkles.
I'm not normally a red person, but wow as soon as I received Cranberry Splash it went straight on my nails and stayed there a good few days... then was reapplied.
I don't have much to say about Blue Bells Ring other than, I am in love.
Exotic Encounter is the perfect murky blued green.
I'm Not Lion is my favourite of the bunch of fine glitters with holo that China Glaze has released this year.
Tease and I fell in love at first sight. All the sparkle of glitter but smooth.
As soon as I applied Running in Circles I never, ever wanted to take it off.
Ruby Blou is a very pretty mix of patriotic toned glitter. I love it over light blue and can't wait to try it over a pale pink.
Play Date is a gorgeous fun purple. Another I just keep going back to.
I love blues and I love the shimmer in I Don't a Rotterdam.
Petal Faster Suzi is the perfect delicate pink.
Zeus is stunning. The pink flash is gorgeous. Another that I just kept wearing this year!
Grecian Sun is hands down my favourite blue of all time. I really need a back up bottle.
I've been loving neutrals this year and Fast Track was my favourite.
I love wearing orange polish and Riveting is stunning. I've seen it on so many best of lists this year.
Olympia is not a colour I would have normally reached for, but as soon as I applied it I fell in love.
She's Picture Perfect is another pink flash polish. I couldn't get enough of them this year.
