Until next year…

    In your opinion, what’s the best white? One that covers well.

    • My personal favorites are Essie “Blanc”, KBShimmer “Eyes White Open” and Rica “Whiteout”. I just got “Whiteout” a couple weeks ago and it’s a one-coater and self levels so well so I think that is my current favorite at the moment followed closely by “Eyes White Open”. I also like Cult Nails “Tempest” but Cult Nails went out of business. Hope that helps.

      • Shelley Bean

        Great! Thanks so much!

    Wow, amazing job on putting this together!

  • You did an amazing job putting this together! I loved looking back at some of my very favorite polishes from the year- especially my beloved Zoyas!!!

  • Wowzers… such a grand post offering so many shade choices and brands. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing it because now I have something to reference when I want to go shopping ;)

  • Norah Salazar

    Taking hard notes and printing when I go shopping! Thanks for this awesome list.

  • Sarah

    I’ve recently discovered your blog and I. Am. Smitten! Your swatches are beautiful! I really enjoyed this post, especially since I’m a new reader, and I had fun looking at the swatches of the winning polishes. I did notice that not all the polishes you had swatches of and I was curious about that. I would be REALLY interested to see the Butter London Steampunk polishes. Thanks for all the work you put into this blog!

  • So much fun to see all the winners! It seems I really have to look into Bear Pawlish. Also, those badges! Girl, what a work! But sooo worth it, you can be proud of yourself :).

  • What an amazing post!! I agree with most of these…I love OPI and KBShimmer in 2014! <3

    And as a blogger, I really admire all the work that I know went into this post! Great job!

  • CNDNailTech

    This post is beautifully done Valesha! Thank you for taking the time to do this. I haven’t ever heard of Bear Polish and I feel like I’m in the indie loop!

  • Victoria – manicurator

    WOW this is a fun post! I’m sure it took a lot of time and effort to put together! Well done :)

  • I need to save this list and get my some amazing polishes! P.S. Those badges are insanely cute, how did you make them?!

  • SoCal Indi

    lmao! I think I only own 2 of these winners! I guess I’m too out of the loop lol

  • MyBeautyJunction

    Nordic is definitely the best collection from last year. Love all your choices! This is an amazing post and you put in so much work on those badges.

  • No wonder it took you so long, this is really in depth! I love that you went outside the box on categories. Also I’ve never heard of Bear Pawlish until now. I’ve got to check them out!

  • Vic

    I only have one of the polishes mentioned – guess that means I need to go shopping!

  • Wow, this must have cost you tons of work. I love the design of the badges, they look amazing! Also, your new blog design looks adorable :)

  • I love that you do this V! So great! I have never heard of Bear Pawlish! I am glad for the winners, some of my top picks won!

  • Wow, what a list! You did an amazing job putting this all together!

  • Fantastic awards list Valesha! Perfect for the current season of award shows. The Oscars are this Sunday, so this is definitely like the Oscars of Nail Polish! Thank you so much for putting this together. How ever did you find the time? I’ll be using the Mirror Mirror award badge since I’m doing a post on that beauty next week! You’re awesome :)

  • Wow, this must have taken you forever! Great list. I need illamasqua Melange in my life.

  • Stephanie

    This is a serious list for me to start shopping from! Thanks for giving us so many options.

  • Soooo happy to see Bear Pawlish and KBShimmer up there so many times!! They are both amazing indie brands! Thanks for putting this all together, I’m sure a lot of effort goes into it!

  • Jbh Jbh

    Huh. Have never heard of Bear Pawlish. Guess I should try them out someday haha. Congrats to all the winners! And to Valesha for all the hard work!

  • Cat

    Hi Valesha, WOW! How much work you must have put into this post. Well, we followers certainly appreciate it! Thanks for all the entertainment and inspiration you’ve given us!

  • Suzanne K.

    I’d never heard of Bear Pawlish before the voting for this began. It must be good, I suppose!

  • Sharon Parayos Merritt

    That is absolutely amazing! Can’t even imagine the work involved. Thank you SO much!! Now I have many things to check out…….lol

  • Cathy Sharp

    Great post! I love Nail Envy, Lemony Flutter and Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover….I totes agree with collaborations too, OPI Coca Cola was a GREAT colab! x

  • Виктория Артамонова

    Wow, I’ve never even heard about Bear Pawlish, and I thought myself a connoisseur of indie :)

  • So strange, that’s the first time I’ve heard of Bear Pawlish. No one of my favourite bloggers reviewed it(
