Top 12 of most of 2012

Christmas Eve round up of my top 12 for half of 2012 polishes for the year :)  It's strange to me that before this year I didn't have a Helmer full of polish (*cough* I may have a 2nd given to me for Christmas!) I used to bite both my nails and cuticles until they were horrid and I only owned ONE OPI and NO China Glaze, Essie or Indie polishes. I started gathering pretty and shiny polishes at the end of January after going to Fiji and getting a lovely manicure with the little nails I had. When I got home I was searching for the polish they used when I ran into the big wide world of polish and nail art. I started my blog in May this year and it's been a slippery slope since then! A lightbox, some HTF's and quite a few collections later..I can make my own nail polish remover, I have quite a stamping collection and my Indie polishes are equal to my commercial ones!
 So, I still have a lot of untried polishes in my collection... I am sure some would have made it onto my top 12 of 2012 but I like to do a whole mani/with some nail art rather than just I have heaps of GlossnSparkle, Femme Fatales and Emilyde Mollys (go Aussies!)..Jindi Nails, Sparkles by Julie, Glitzology and new to me OPIs... but from what I wore and photographed this are my fave polishes/looks in no particular order :)

Well, hope you liked a few of the polishes and looks that I did this year and continue to look in on my blog every now and then. I am going to have a blog giveaway when my followers hit 100 or I hit 20000 page views! So look out for it, it wont be long I hope.. I am looking forward to a more consistent blogging year with more nail art challenges and pretty polishes!
