1. A England Avalon - Avalon is everything I love in a purple polish. Bright, regal, shimmery, and a formula that is out of this world!
Trendsetter did not disappoint when it came to being a unique shade! It has just the right proportion of ugly/pretty and I love the way it compliments my skin.
In A Trance was one of those colors that felt sophisticated and sexy on my nails. It has just the right mixture of olive and gold tones.
Braziliant is one orange that is bright and shimmery without being extremely over the top. Just looking back at the pictures of this shade make me long for summer and warmer days.
Owl's Night is my surprise pick. Loreal blew me away with this shade. The golden shimmer just makes this shade glow on your nails.
Flirty made me feel. Pink polish filled with silver shimmer that just screams fun and sexy on your nails...sign me up!
Gemma just may be my most favorite polish ever! It is an amazing shade of green with flashes of blue that catch your eye with every turn of your hand.
I am sure that the list may be a little different if I would've actually tried all of the polishes in my stash that were released (the woes of having too many untrieds). A few polishes that almost made the cut deserve honorable mentions: Butter London Lady Muck; Barielle Gotta Have Fate; Essie Shine of the Times; FingerPaints Sparkling Top Coat; Maybelline Cool Couture; OPI Mermaid's Tears; and Revlon Blue Mosaic.
2011 has been a great year for Refined and Polished! I never thought a hobby that I've had since middle school would have turned into this. I'm so glad and thankful to have so many of you along for the ride!
Did any of my 2011 favorites make your list?
