Top 21 Nail Polishes in my Stash

I thought it would be fun to pick through my stash on a cold, house-bound day and pick out the polishes I could never part with.  There are a lot of polishes that I love, but I narrowed it down to 21 that I couldn't part with come hell or high water.

In no particular order (clicking links will navigate you away from the page, right click and open new window to stick around!):

  • Missha Crystal - from Australia!  I need more of these!
  • MAC Endless Night - a nude with attitude!
  • Dior Czarina Gold -I searched high and low for this, and by chance found it by calling a Bloomingdales in California.  Hey, whatever you gotta do, right?
  • Dior Gold Nugget - this is an oldie... but a cultie!  they should release it again.  You can't tell in the photo, but it's almost half gone!  the most used in my stash! (excuse the crap swatch)
  • Dior Merveille - a shimmery, juicy, cherry red... perfect for ANY season!
  • Cult Nails Unicorn Puke - this really needs no words... heaven in a bottle
  • Zoya Tiffany - Bet you thought I would have thrown in Zoya Brooke ;) I dun like it, but Tiffany stuns!
And, finally, MAC Something About Pink from the Hello Kitty Collection (forgot to put it in the main photo, whoopsie!).  This one is sentimental to me, because I was wearing it the day I gave birth to my daughter almost three years ago!

What are some of your fave polishes?  Are any sentimental to you?

Nice choices! One polish I will NEVER get rid of is Nicole by OPI Love Your Life. When my husband built me my nail polish rack, he bought that polish to set on it before I unloaded my stash. I like it so much because he picked it out :)

I love your taste! I have the OPI merry midnight that is a dupe for orly fowl play. Which do you prefer? ;)

I love the stories behind the nail polishes! Mine don't have that... I just love China Glaze Grape Pop forever

@Glamo Nails - I like Fowl Play better because it has a darker base. In the link I did a comparison and it was no contest! ;) But really, it's a matter of whatever would suit your fancy more.

Aw, what a wonderful post. I had so much fun looking through your favourites and reading your story! I love the sentimental value behind the Hello Kitty polish; how wonderful!! :D

I think sometime in the near future I will do a favourites post too! I have a few and I look forward to choosing and remembering the sentimental value behind them. ^-^

You have such a great collection! I love my Merry Midnight, but Fowl Play does look even better! I can never own enough purple nail polishes! But no, so far I don't have any nail polishes that bring certain memories back. The only thing I can tell you is that my boyfriend has a pretty wacky taste in nail polishes. He likes my China Glaze Holly Holly, Midnight Ride, Chanel Peridot and so on. That certainly makes life easier lol
