My Personal Favorite Indies of 2012

Happy Weekend Everyone!!  I just got done going through my indie posts and I've picked some of my favorites from 2012...

My Personal Faves from 2012:

Here they are, in no particular order...

43 Quintillion from Tough As Nail Lacquer has a clear base with all the colors from the Rubik's Cube.  I love the primary colors and the awesome formula!!

Dirtball  from My Ten Friends is a recent favorite of mine.  I love the brown base and the scattered holo shine.  I love teal and brown together!!

Flowers on the Highway from Happy Hands Nail Polish is a fun springtime glitter topper.. such pretty colors in a clear base!!

Another from Tough as Nails Lacquer is Go Sit On A Egg.. I love the milky white base and the combo of yellows and oranges is unique.  I think it's safe to say Tough As Nails Lacquer is my favorite Indie Shop of 2012! :)

God's Gift to Glitter is another simple creamy white base containing red square and black hex glitters from Aphrodite Lacquers.  It's the simplicity I love most about this one!

GTL (Gym Tan Laundry) from Dollish Polish is gorgeous!!  I love the light blue, royal blue and copper together.  The formula is perfect with GTL.  IF I had to pick just one favorite indie polish of the year.. GTL would be THE ONE! :)

Libra Scales from Pretty & Polished is another gorgeous blue (blue was my fave this year).  I love the jelly finish and the square glitters that just float around in the layers!!  And, yes, I'm a libra, but I would have loved this no matter which sign it represented. :)

Mallard (I forgot to add this to the collage.. oops) by Candeo Colors has a shimmery lilac base with lime, green, silver and purple glitters.  I have this layered over Zoya Caitlin and this is one of my favorite combos from this year..  it's gorgeous!!

E=mc2 by Elemental Styles is another with a milky base.  The base is more gray with silver and black glitters.  Again, simple and gorgeous!!

Mustard Fields  by Sonoma Nail Art was an unlikely pick from me because I'm usually not drawn to greens or yellows, but I immediately fell for this one..  I think it was the yellows flowers :)  Shopping for most polishes from Sonoma Nail Art was a task in itself.  As soon as these polishes would go up for sale on Etsy, everyone would race to buy them.. it was total mayhem, but it was fun!

Pentimento by Lynnderella is another glitter hodgepodge that's so much fun!!  There's a zillion different glitters in Pentimento and a zillion different options to layer this over!  You know I love a versatile glitter! ;)

Rainbow Jello by The Polish Bar is YET ANOTHER milky white crelly.  This polish contains glitters in every color of the rainbow along with white small and large hexes.  It's so much fun and I just love Janice, the owner of The Polish Bar.. she's such a sweetheart with awesome customer service!!

Nice Scrunchy, Heather by Dollish Polish was one of my first favorite indies!!  This polish is THE PERFECT cherry red holo and I'm glad I own two bottles because Nice Scrunchy, Heather is discontinued. I just loved the movie "Heathers" too!!

Seuss by ::whimsical ideas by pam:: has a gorgeous blue jelly base with white and red hex glitters.  I love the formula with Seuss.  If I had to pick a favorite jelly for 2012, Seuss would be THE ONE!!

Shift Happens by Girly Bits is an amazing multi-chrome topper.  Girly Bits was another one of my first indie polishes and I'm so happy for all of Pam's (the owner of Girl Bits) success!!  I've seen this polish on a few other blogger's lists, so it's safe to say everyone seems to love Shift Happens!!

Supa Sugar Bee by Elixir Lacquers is so so so pretty!!! I have it layered over OPI Funky Dunkey in the above picture.  I still love this violet holo every time I grab it from my stash.. it looks great over a darker purple too!!

Warm Fuzzies by Different Dimension is a beautiful chocolate brown holo!!  You don't see brown too often, but I love it and I love Warm Fuzzies!!
