My Top Picks of 2013

Wow was this hard to do!  There has been so much great new polish this year.  I feel like I left something out or passed something over.  There's one notable blank spot.  I never swatched my OPI Euro Centrale picks and it's still weighing on me.  I also completely forgot to swatch Haven't The Foggiest, which seems oddly appropriate.

You'll notice a few patterns here.  There's a lot of blue and green, for starters.  It was a great year for both colors!  The brands are a bit obvious too.  Lots of Sinful Colors, lots of Sally Hansen...if you read this blog often, you know what I like.  Some are standing in for whole posts where there was just too much awesome to be represented here without taking over.  I felt like I should include a texture or two because they were such a huge deal this year...but I didn't.  If I did a second list for "honorable mention" it might include one of the L'Oreal Gold Dust shades or maybe Essie Lots Of Lux....maybe.

I've seen a few people ask others to name their favorite collection of the year, but I can't!  There are few I bought entirely.  Color Club Fiesta (only swatched Sunrise Canyon so far) and Harlem Lights, Revlon Evening Opulence, Sinful Colors Haute Rebel and Sweet Nothing...I can't think of any others.  If I had to pick a favorite, Haute Rebel might be the one.  It's not mindblowing, but there's nothing I don't like.  Not a single bad formula or unflattering color....it's just simple and "edgy".  If I can split the Sally Hansen Designer Collections up by designer, then it's a more emphatic toss-up between Tracy Reese or Prabal Gurung's fall collections....but even bending the rules I can't really pick.  This year was terrific!

I tried to cut my list down to a reasonable length, but even small and buddied up, there are a ton of photos.  Blogger won't let me write down at the bottom of the post for some reason (it threw several fits about this format as is), so there's no closing line.  Please get comfortable, click to expand the post, enjoy, and click the links if you wanna know more about any of these polishes.
