2014 favorites (less #1)

I did a top 10 but I don't have fancy pictures or anything, because I think everybody who knows me knows by now that that's not how I roll. (I would have taken some sort of pictures if there had been sun today, but no dice on that. I will see what I can dig up out of the Delicious Color archives, though!)

I have never done a top 10 before, and given that, I decided that it didn't make any sense to limit it to polishes released this year only. Because of that, my criteria for inclusion is not when it was made or purchased, but rather that I wore it for the first time in 2014. (I did pull several older releases out of the list and put them into an Honorable Mention category, though - see below for that.)

This is 2-10 - #1 is coming tomorrow. In alpha order by brand:

  • China Glaze Travel In Colour
  • Cover Girl Outlast Violet Flicker
  • Dollish Polish The Angels Have The Phone Box
  • OPI Alcatraz... Rocks
  • Pahlish Pyrite
  • Serum No 5 Yule Light Up my Life
  • Sinful Colors Gilded
  • Zoya Carter (Pixie Dust)
  • Zoya Teigen
