This is my final "top of 2012" post. In our wonderful world of nail polish we have many big companies. i.e Zoya, O.P.I, China Glaze, Color Club.. etc. Then we have the handmade nail polishes, countless brands. AND THENNN there is this group of companies that are kind of in the middle. They are not hand made, but they are not uber major. These are the "inbetweeners". The ones that I really see taking off/ took off this year. I have very high expectations of these smaller brands in 2013! I really love these brands because they are not so influenced by the "mainstream mentality". These brands dare to take risks and create quirky collection.

This needs to explanation does it? Perfection in a bottle.
Pomegranate Lacquers Enchanted Lagoon
Cult Nails I got Distracted
Maria's youngest daughter created this color for her very own collection (which was amazing). I got Distracted was another amazingly executed, Black based glitter.
Lime Crime Milky Ways
This polish graced my nails many times since I received it. I loved it SO much that the girls at LC ended up sending me backup bottles. This is another case of simple beauty is sometimes best.

Cult Nails Doppelganger
I am so excited to see what all these brands have in store for us in 2013. Cult Nails really blew me away this year. They consistently put out some of the most beautiful and unique collections throughout the year. Pomegranate really surprised me with their shades as well as Lime Crime, who are new comers to the nail polish world. I wish these brands much success this coming year!! Keep being awesome and keep doing you!!!
I will be back tomorrow with a little feature on my "breakout brand of 2012"!! Good night my loves!
