Candidates for 2016 favorites

I do something a little different with my "favorites of the year" posts - I allow myself a slightly wider field to choose from than most people. Any polish is eligible that I wore for the first time in 2016. It doesn't have to have been released then.

So the list below is everything I could find that I wore for the first time in 2016 (including a couple I wasn't 100% sure about). I've mostly only been doing my nails once a week, all this year, and I haven't bought as many new polishes as the last few years, so I may not have as many candidates, but I haven't counted to compare. Last year I remember doing a top 10 for the first half of the year, and another top 10 for the second half, so I had a "shortlist" of 20 polishes. I do have a shortlist this year, too, but it's less than 20. I may end up with a top 10 and some honorable mentions, I haven't quite decided yet.

But meanwhile here's the long version. I'll get the shorter one up later in the week.
