Favorite mainstream polishes 2015

We are already at the end of 2015 so it’s time to summarize the year in a list of mainstream polishes shown during the year on the blog. The polishes will be shown in no particular order. 2015 was the year when I really embraced the matte trend and one of my favorites this year is a matte shade! I feel like the whole Zoya – Naturel Satins collection could have fit into my favorites but I’ve only chosen one (Sage) that will represent the entire collection. I’ve been wearing them a lot since I’ve got them, both on their own and as bases for nail art. But I’ve also found a new “white”, a black and a new red to be among my favorites! Let’s take a look at them!

OPI – I cannoli wear OPI

I was pleasantly surprised to find an excellent off-white that could replace my all-time favorite OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls. It even has a better formula than MBSW!


OPI – Center of the you-niverse

This one was a surprise for me! I knew I would love that silver sparkle but I’m usually wearing more pastels than dark shades! This polish totally won my heart!

Zoya – Sage

Sage represents the entire Naturel Satin collection! It’s a grayish green, subtle yet elegant! A truly love at first sight!

Ciaté – Hutch

This is a classic red polish that only needs one coat to cover and that dries to a gorgeous shiny surface. I love the shade, I love the finish and I definitely love the luxurious package.

CND Vinylux – Nordic Lights

I’ve only recently discovered the CND Vinylux polishes and they quickly became my favorites! I had a hard time deciding between Glacial Mist and Nordic Lights though!

    I love I Cannoli Wear OPI too. That red by Ciate is pretty too. I’ve never used any of their polishes. I really like your choices for favorites.
