Top 10 Nail Polishes of 2017

Well folks, another year is coming to a close and I can hardly believe it. I think that's the general consensus around these parts and I think a lot of people are hoping 2018 will be a much better year than 2017. The beginning of 2018 is going to be a little scary for Riley and I but we will get through it. Let's take a look at my Top 10 Nail Polishes of 2017... in no particular order...

The BEST Vegan and Cruelty Free Hand Cream EVER!

I am always on the hunt for the perfect hand cream/lotion/butter. I first learned of Cake Beauty from my days at ChickAdvisor and it was love at first try. I tried Cake Beauty's dry shampoo and use it every now and then but what really hooked me was their Heavy Cream Intensive Hand Repair Balm. Let me tell you why I love this hand balm.

Lynderella Cyanara Violet

Well, it's been a long while since I've worn a Lynnderella (almost 18 months!). My beautiful nail friend Joanie (@bullepolish on Instagram) sent this Lynnderella nail polish to me as a gift. I've met some wonderful and generous people in the nail world and I am so thankful for them. Let's check out this beauty and see if my base pairing skills are still up to scratch...

Nail Polish Canada Holiday 2017 Nail Art

It's a known fact that I am terrible at nail art but every once in a while I try. When Nail Polish Canada invited me to participate in their annual Holiday Nail Art challenge, I couldn't say no. Here is my contribution... I present to you Christmas leopard nails!

Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge

For this "nail art look," I used a base of Girly Bits Jiminy Christmas from the other day. Then I dotted on China Glaze Flame Boyant (which you can buy directly from Nail Polish Canada).

I randomly applied the China Glaze to make leopard spots. It's pretty opaque but I had to go back and darken it with a second coat. I didn't use top coat because I felt like going with the textured look though I realize that might not be as visually appealing. 

If you feel so inclined, please vote for me here: Nail Polish Canada 2017 Holiday Nail Art. Full disclosure, I would not vote for myself because there are so many other amazing bloggers who did an even more amazing job by far. 

What will be on your nails for the Holidays?

Girly Bits Jiminy Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year... for some, at least. I am finding this Christmastime to be hard because a lot has changed so quickly. It makes me realize that all that really truly matters is having your loved ones near and healthy and happy. Sparkly green nails help to make things feel a little better too.
