Most Worn Nail Polish of 2012

Most Worn Nail Polish 2012


2012 was the year my nail polish collection more than doubled. I went a little crazy. So it was hard work narrowing down my most worn nail polishes. I managed to get it down to 9 and that took me quite a while.

Nail Polish

So first up we have my ANNY 367 Most Wanted Polish that I bought in Amsterdam. It’s a complete dupe for the Chanel 531 Peridot. Its so pretty and was a complete bargain. I wear it whenever I can. It’s such an unusual colour and I always get compliments when I have it on.

Models Own Utopia which I picked up back in Sept / Oct when they had their 50% online sale. This is a great base for glitter polishes. Its pretty and subtle. Can’t go wrong with this colour.

Sally Hansen Delphinium was a bargain I picked up from the poundshop. It’s such a great quality polish & I love the wide brush. It makes application so easy. This colour is a really pale lilac. I wear it when I don’t want bright nails. Just something clean and simple. I have a few more polishes from this line all from the poundshop and the formulation is amazing.

Rimmel 350 Violet Metal Lasting Finish Pro again this was from the pondshop & it is just the most pretty purple polish. It’s quite a vampy colour and it looks great anytime of year. I blogged about it here.

Nail Polish 2012


Angelica Holiday Fun this is a vibrant pink polish. I picked this up from Primark for £2.50. They have a great selection of colours. I wore this alot over the summer. I have blogged more in-depth about these here.

Essie Nail Polish. I have no idea what colour this is. I picked it up in a set of 3 from TK Maxx and all the names are wrong. So if you have any idea which colour this is I’d love to know. It’s a soft pink and I love it. I wear it so often. It goes with everything.

Barry M  Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Pomegranate. I love this deep red / pink colour. It’s so glossy and lasts for ages without chipping. I blogged about it here.

Nail Polish blues

These last two blue polishes are my absolute favourites. I enjoy wearing these so much.

Topshop AWOL nail polish. This is a striking blue. So deep and pretty. I just love it. In fact I’m a huge fan of all the Topshop nail polishes I own. They are great quality. I have blogged about it here.

Lastly, my beloved Rimmel 819 in Green With Envy. This is so pretty. It’s an unusual metallic green. I bought it in the summer and have worn it almost every week since. When I am stuck for something to put on I always come back to this colour.

    Oh no, I want all these nail polishes now! I have loved all my Barry M nail polishes, especially the glitter ones for over the festive period. Giving my nails a break now but I usually go for a trusty Rimmel for everyday because they have a bigger brush, I love Hot List.

      Hot List – oooo never heard of that I will have a look for it next time. I like their brush too. Bigger brushes are so must easier to use.
