Soooo I have been spotty with posting lately, and I’m really sorry about that! I was trying to think of short but interesting posts I could do and I thought it might be fun to compile lists of my favorite polishes – I know that I love reading what other bloggers’ top polishes and products are, and hopefully you all will enjoy reading mine!
I must say, this is no small feat – I am hopelessly indecisive in all area of life – but I finally narrowed my choices down! I’m going to break them up into categories by color with 10 polishes in each category. These are my absolute, 100%, can’t-live-without-them favorite shades. The lists are interesting because you can see what shade of each color I gravitate towards, or how certain brands create colors I can’t get enough of (China Glaze and their greens!).
Today’s post will be warm tones – the “Roy” of “Roy G. Biv” – because I don’t have 10 individual favorites of red, orange, and yellow. (I also threw coral in this group.) So here they are, my top ten favorite warm-toned hues:
Knees Up: Glowy metallic red gorgeousness! This is like Christmas wrapping paper on your nails.
Velvet Bow: This lush, sexy, and super shiny burgundy creme will make even the most non-traditional polish fan drool.
Glitter Goblin: China Glaze makes the best micro glitters and this one is sparkly as all get out. I adore the mix of holo and deep orange glitters, and of course the name!
Jinx : A slightly coral-leaning saturated orange texture with gold shimmer – I love OPI’s textures, and this is one of the best!
Surfin’ For Boys: I’m not usually a coral girl, but something about SFB’s neon coral with pink shimmer entrances me (not to mention gets compliments every time I wear it!).
Son Of A Peach: Neon peach, do I need to say more? The formula is tough, but the color is definitely worth it.
East Austin: A more pink-leaning peach than SOAP, but with just as bright (and difficult) of a formula.
Lava Lamp: Insanely neon saturated orange – in low lighting this baby appears to glow, it’s so neon!
Sunkissed: It always pulls a bit too sunshine yellow on camera, and true, it isn’t the most neon-y neon, but the formula is so easy, the shimmer is beautiful, and I can’t resist neon yellow!
Solange: Golden-yellow textured perfection…I really can’t say it often enough – you need this shade!
I’ve used every polish here on the blog in the past year, some more than once. You can see I gravitate towards bright/neon hues, but I do love the glamour of Knees Up’s metallic red and Velvet Bow’s wine vampiness. I did a quick ombre look with a few of these colors because I was running out of time, but it actually worked out pretty well! Definitely an eye-catching look.
Here’s a pic where it looks like I’m dead, but it showed the neon pop of these fabulous colors nicely.
Next time will be greeeeeeeeeeeens, so get excited! Thank you for reading, see you next time – A x
