What was your favorite drugstore nail color of 2012? If you can't narrow it down to just one, give me your top three drugstore nail colors that you tried for the first time in 2012...

  1. Hmm... I like Sinful Colors' Sugar Sugar, Essie Da Bush, and Revlon Smoldering. I go for a range of colors, but glitter is my fave!

  4. This is tough!! Revlon Vintage really surprised me. It's definitely not a color I would normally gravitate toward, but I received it in my goodie bag for participating in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women's Cancer. It is my go-to fall shade...AND it happens to be 75% off at CVS as part of the big beauty sale! I highly recommend it :)

  11. The chartreuse nail polish from the Wet n Wild Flora set. It's a fun color that looks awesome in the sunlight.

  15. Omg! This like asking which child is your favorite! Lol! I am going say top three are Jordanna's Glitter in Sequin, Revlon Dreamer Sinful Colors Hazard!

  16. My favorite drugstore color of the year is Sinful Mesmerize, with Sinful Nova and Wet n Wild ML Poison Ivy tied for second. Also, I really love SH In a Flurry. So, I guess that answers both questions!

  17. Fergie...that one with the stars in it! Great gift. I think you were wearing this in a different name by wet n wild in a post the other day G.

  18. Tough one as there are soo many beautiful polishes that were new to me this year. My top picks though are Sinful Colors Cinderella for the microshimmery beauty and because I am a fan of Disney princesses. Essie's Boxer Shorts for it's indecisivenesss. Is it purple or is it blue? What a gorgeous blurple it is. And who at Essie was in charge of naming that one? And finally a Fergie Wet n' Wild color I think it's called Hollywood Walk of Fame, it has multi colored stars and some small bar glitters suspended in a clear base polish.

  19. Sinful Colors Leap Flog and Polar Opposite, and Sally Hansen Lava.

  20. Sinful Colors Winterberry, Revlon Naughty and Maybelline Color Show Downtown Brown!

  21. This is easy....I think!

    Revlon's Nail Enamel Polish in TANGERINE! I never thought to use orange nail polish before using Revlon's Tangerine nail polish and one day, I just picked it up and there started my love for this particular nail polish. Even Wet n Wild's Club Havana does not even come close to comparing with Revlon's Tangerine. I have my first one and two backups to prove how much I love it.

    Spoiled by Wet n Wild's I Tripped on the Red Carpet has to be one of the most beautiful ruby red polish that I love and just love it.

    I have a growing nail polish collection, but these two nail polishes, I think are my absolute favorites for 2012. And I usually choose cooler toned colors, but I just love these polishes. I recommend them!

  22. 1) Revlon Royal (I just bought this the other day at the CVS clearance sale, and it is an AMAZING intense cobalt blue jelly)
    2) Maybelline Boho Gold
    3) Maybelline Downtown Brown

    Rimmel- Burgundy flirt.
    In my 100+ nail polish collection 20+ red alone. it is hands down the prettiest vampy sexy sultry red ever. Ever. lol

  24. My absolute favorite was Sally Hansen diamond strength jewel overcoat in Ring-a-ding, piled on.. but I don't wear it anymore because it is virtually impossible to remove. (yes I tried the foil wrap trick)Absolutely gorgeous, looks like piles of copper pennies. My second favorite is WnW fast dry in The Gold and the Beautiful.. similar in color but nowhere near as dimensional.. much, much easier to apply and remove.

  25. My color of the summer was Spoiled Tip Your Waitress. For winter, I'm quite enjoying WnW Disturbia, and my on-and-off favorites throughout the year were Sinful Colors Cinderella and Nicole by OPI Paparazzi Don't Preach.

  26. Sally Hansen Lava..and though I do not own it yet, I have high hopes!! What a gorgeous color!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sinful Colors Citrine, Sinful Be Happy, and Hedy's Beyond Opal (over white).

  28. This is so easy for me: NYC Python Green!

    Spoiled I'm Baroque

  30. That's almost impossible to answer, to choose favorites out of my 100-plus babies? I've really loved Revlon's Rain Forest and Sinful Colors' Cinderella and Mint Apple. Also loved the Maybelline fall colors, especially Downtown Brown. And as the year ticks down I'm into glitters in a big way. (Though it's not technically drugstore, I love China Glaze's It's a Trap-Eze! and Whirled Away.)

  31. Oh, and I forgot one, China Glaze Smoke and Ashes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Essie Shine of the Times. It goes with (and on top of) everything!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hands down Essie Bikini So Teeny. It has one of the lamest names ever but it looks really great and unexpected on toes. Turquoise And Caicos comes in a close second. And Revlon's Craving Coral makes me happy whenever I wear it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hands down it's Boho Gold from Maybelline's LE stuff this fall. The formula is not great, but the duochrome is very unique and incredibly wearable.

    ReplyDelete
  35. 2012 was such a fun year for nail polish! China Glaze's Hunger Games collection was fantastic, especially "Riveting" and "Electrify" (the gold and orange glitter). My third favorite polish of the year was Revlon's "Orbit," the purple flakie from the Moon Candy duos!

  36. Omigoodness this is so easy for me! DEFINITELY Wet n Wild's Refresh-mint. It's the perfect blue for me, not to cool, but not too green. And it works with every outfit :)

  37. Essie Boxer Shorts with Essie Stroke Of Brilliance on an accent nail, hands down (pun intended) my fav mani/pedi of the year! I'm tellin ya these 2 were made for each other. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ok. I just found my third for 2012 - Spoiled by WnW's Pick Your Poison #026, perfect holiday red and it's sorta vampy. Looks very glossy and I just love the red. What's strange is my favorite color is blue,but I am loving this red.

  39. 1) OPI Deutche You Want Me Baby
    2) Zoya Ziv

    ReplyDelete
  40. 1.) Maybelline Color Show Lavender Sparks, (lavender holo glitter) which looks awesome as an accent over
    2.)Pure Ice Viva Las Vegas, from the Runway collection (subtle gold/taupe duochrome)
    and...hmm...
    3.)Revlon Gray Suede? It's a super flattering dark nude against my skintone. Runner up would be Revlon Royal.

    Drat. I just realized all of these are either LE or possibly discontinued...

  41. China Glaze Riveting.. and Essie shine of the times. Never had hidden treasure so that made me super happy.
