iHeartPrettyPolish 12 Favorite Nail Looks of 2012

If you follow nail blogs or watch Youtube beauty videos, you will notice bloggers like to re-cap the prior year with an overall favorites post or video.  I LOVE reading and watching these and planned on doing the same.  I thought now would be a great time since I am waiting for my broken nails to grow.  So here are my favorite manicures of 2012 in no particular order.  I will also include a link to the original post. Enjoy!

Posting these makes me want to wear them again!  It was hard to narrow my favorites down to 12.  If I could add one more, it would be OPI Pedal Faster Suzi.  I wore so many awesome polishes in 2012 and I look forward to finding many more in 2013.  

To My Readers
Thanks for sticking with me, commenting, and showing your support.  I have said this before, but this community is amazing.  I've met so many great friends through blogging and it hasn't even been a year.  It's cool how nail polish can bring so many women (and men) in different parts of the world together.  Everyone is supportive, friendly, and non-judgmental.  There were days when I felt discouraged or down and your comments boosted my self esteem and brightened my day. It's rare to find a group of people like this and I am so happy to be a part of it.  If you don't have a blog and have thought about starting one, I highly recommend it.  You will have so many friendly people right at your fingertips. 

Thank you!

    1. LOL, I had to add it because the post was so much fun:) I miss that show! Thanks for being such a great friend to me! I am so happy to have met you....even if it is only online. Just had a thought...maybe you aren't who you say your are. Maybe you are a MAN!? Have you heard of that Catfish show?

  3. I am seriously considering starting a blog, but I am not sure I can handle the mean people...so how do you deal with that?

    1. I wouldn't worry about that part of it. I haven't had any mean people...yet. Everyone is very nice and I wouldn't let the possibility of a rude person keep you from blogging. If I do end up getting a mean comment in the future, I will remind myself that they must be coming from a rough place if they are picking on a blogger:) Do it! Would you do nail polish?

    2. Yep. With my sister-in-law :) I kind of got her into polish last year and we have been talking about starting one for a few months now. We both tend to be pretty sensitive and self-conscious, so this is a big deal for us! :)

    3. I had a hard time starting too. I tend to worry too much about what people think of me. I actually started this blog and didn't have any followers for a while because I wasn't telling anyone about it - I was scared. But I ended up starting to show people online and they were all very supportive. Don't be scared, you can do it!

  6. These are many of my favorites too! I need to get on making one of these, lol. I just cringe every time I look back at my "early" posts.

    1. I know what you mean about going through the early posts. Eeeek! You should do it though. You have so many awesome posts, I bet it will be hard for you to pick.

  7. Hi Essie, I love favorite listings too! Not only to see which polishes you picked but also scrolling through it and remember the posts that came with it. With you they are always something special!!! Hands down your accent nail ones are probably my favorites. But I seem to have a similar preference for aqua and turqoise colored nails so of course these are right up my alley!!!!

  8. I love your list! I would never have thought to layer No More Waity Katie over Zoya Kelly. Interesting. Also, that last polish, Dusk, looks AMAZING.

    1. Dusk is beautiful. And I was so happy when I found a combo for No More Waity Katie...until then, I didn't like it that much.

  9. I am so honored that Dusk made your top 12!! Also, it has been a joy "meeting" you and I am so happy that I have. I miss blogging so much! I hope to maybe get back to doing one post a week now that things are settling down a little bit. I just love posts like this! I also really love reading your blog and seeing what you do. Your manis are always amazing! :)
