Top 10 of 2012: Best Nail Lacquers

I really don’t know how I managed to keep this list to ten, because I feel like I fall in love with a new polish every week. There were SO many more amazing polishes that aren’t on this list, though. I tried to go across brands and put together a list of ones that really struck me or were more original.

What’s was your favorite nail lacquer of 2012?

5 Polish Picks for the Holidays

I tried to pick five various shades, rather than five of one color, to show off the variety of holiday-esque polishes! :)

  1. China Glaze Cranberry Splash — brilliant bright red
  2. Illamasqua Swinger — antique gold
  3. Zoya Song — sparkling blue
  4. Butter London British Racing Green — deep, dark green
  5. Chanel Malice — deep, dark red

What’s your favorite polish for the holiday season?

Zoya Song Nail Lacquer
Zoya Song Nail Lacquer

Song is a Polish That Really Sings

Zoya Song Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bold, vibrant medium primary blue with silver and blue glittery metallic sparkle.” It’s a rich, medium-dark blue with brighter blue and silver sparkle and shimmer. China Glaze Blue Year’s Eve is similar but has purple sparkle. Illamasqua Force is a bit more violet-tinted and has no shimmer. Butter London Blagger is close in color but has no shimmer. SpaRitual Twinkle is a bit darker and has finer shimmer.

This shade was almost opaque in a single coat, but two were necessary for full color coverage. The composition of Song is so very lovely; it has rich, vibrant color with a lot of depth and nuance. It dried down to a naturally shiny finish, and the consistency of the formula was fluid and easy to maneuver on the nail.  I typically get a week of wear with Zoya’s formula–just minor tip wear but no chipping!

The Glossover



Temptalia Recommends
What a beautiful color for the autumn/winter seasons! The color itself has a lot of depth, richness, and detail. It really shimmers and sparkles delightfully in person!
