I didn't plan to concentrate on new nail polishes in this entry - but most of these colors were purchased in 2011. I've included links to the original posts.
Then on to true blue holos with 2Nite by CG and also Tristam by A-england which was a bit of a dissapointment for me (see it here). Holographic polishes were always on my mind...
I had so many new colors to try and get familiar with, I didn´t do nail art so often as I´ve used to in the past. There were two definite trends on my looks, first one involving french tips. I've always loved my dots and held dear toothpicks that give me just the right-sized round marks. Somewhere along the way I really fell for pearl look on the smile line.
The second trend for me on 2011 was dark base with some definition:
Clover nails matte was my favorite dark look. A simple proof of how you can be inspired by something/someone and give it your own twist to accomplish something quite different. I also found that this Matte Finish by Rimmel performs far better on me than any other matte top coat I've tried.
This is my favorite look this year I think. It's effortless to make and to wear, and to pair with any outfit. Most of you seem to like it too, for this black french manicure quickly became my most popular post this year :)
This year has also brought many new readers through Google Friend Connect and Bloglovin' and through some sweet bloggers' blog rolls . As I'm typing this I just noticed there are 800 of you via GFC, wow! I want to thank you all, old and new friends, for keeping this blog as a friendly place with your sweet and uplifting comments. Thank you for being a positive inspiration!
Did you have other favorites from my nail looks this year?
Any special wishes for 2012?
