Some of my favorite polishes of all time...

This is essentially a continuation of my previous post, My Top 2011 Polishes...I felt it was too much for one post.


There are some polishes that I will just always adore. I'm sure I've missed a few, but here are my Favorite Polishes:

OPI Candy Cane Cutie (Sorry, I had to keep some of the pictures small so they didn't appear blurry!)





































Another one of my favorites, which I don't have swatched yet, is Lippmann Collection Across the Universe

Any, finally, as some of you read, my cousin and I got our ears pierced yesterday. Two of you emailed me, and one of you, who was interested in getting it done herself, asked how it was. The rook is known as one of the more painful ear piercings, but it really was not bad. (If you don't like needles, skip ahead!) Since the cartilage is thicker there, it takes a while for the needle to get through, but it wasn't the most painful piercing I've ever had. (I think the forward helix was the most painful.) The pain is always short-lived, anyway! My ear is doing well...just doing some sea salt soaks to help it heal! It doesn't look great right now, but hopefully it does when it's fully healed. (My hair isn't really that greasy, by the way. I had just taken a shower!)
If you ever need piercing information, I suggest the Body Piercing Forum of the Body Jewellry Shop or Awful Modifications on tumblr. Although Awful Modifications is basically a showcasing of terrible, often homemade piercings (and some of the pics are gruesome, so if you're squeamish, steer clear of this site!) the mods on the site give terrific advice and are very knowledgeable. Plus, they have an FAQ section and information on almost any type of piercing!

Well, that is my (very long, double post!) compilation of my favorite polishes! 2011 was a great year for polish, and I hope 2012 proves to be as nice! What were some of your favorites?

I hope you guys have a terrific New Year's! Today is actually my dad's birthday, so we're going to have a family lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Later tonight, my dad and I are taking my grandmother to the symphony, and then I'm having a low-key night with my best friends. Any fun plans? I wish you all the best for 2012, including peace, love, happiness, and nail polish!

  4. I got my Rook pierced about 2 months ago and it wasn't bad. More pressure with the needle going through than pain. It's healing quite well! I've had a hard time with my cartilage so I got the Rook hoping it would be better since the piercing doesn't go through to the back of my ear. Yay for Sea Salt! And love all your favorite swatches!

  5. Interesting colours on these nails, specially the turquoise...!

    Looking at your piercing, I would well see a BioFlex Multi-use tube with some cute jewelled heads ..this would bringmuch comfort, specially when you sleep on it as the BioFlex is flexible.

    You can find it on http://www.bodyjewelleryshop.com which is the shopof the forum you pointed in this article, or http://www.body-piercing-jewellery.com/acatalog/BioFlex__Multi_Use_Tubes.html

    This would look much better if you match it with the colours of your nails..just a thought!

    Many thanks for sharing.
