Year in Review: 2016 Favorite Polishes

2016 was a great year for my blog! I got to work with a lot of amazing indie brands, as well as mainstream. I also co-founded The Color Box, which has been an amazing experience. I tried to narrow down my favorite polishes from the year, which was a hard thing to do! Unfortunately, a lot of my personal purchases never get swatched and/or photographed and shared with you all, so most of these except one I think, are ones that you all have already seen. I wanted to put them all in one post and show my favorite indie brands some love though! In no particular order...

Anchor & Heart - Vacation Land
One of my favoritest new brands to come out of 2016!
Athena & Aphrodite - Moneta's Jewel
A lesser known brand that deserves some more love from us!
Baroness X - Doomfire
I'm sure this will be on a lot of 2016 favorite lists!
Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Wash Away What's Past
Inspired by my favorite musical, Les Mis!
Black Dahlia Lacquer - Rose Bud

Bornprettystore - Chameleon Polish
