Rather than a list of my favorite polishes for 2012, I decided to do a review of my year in nails. 2012 was not so kind to me but I sure had a lot of fun with nail polish.
Let's begin at the beginning...
I lost my job in January but I managed to score an OPI before that happened. I'm pretty sure this Quarter of a Cent-Cherry but I don't know for sure. Either way, I really like it and I'm super picky about reds. My photo isn't so hot but I wasn't exactly feeling things. It happens when you're depressed.

In February, I got to go to Vancouver, B.C. and made out like a bandit. Killed some lemmings and scored some sweet deals. Plus, I went to Canada. I love Canada.
In March, I played around with a lot of nail art and did some experimenting. I was so proud to finally have a full coverage stamp work for me.
In April, my friend J.B. brought me nail polish back from his trip to Turkey. His wife did a great job in choosing the colors.
May was my birthday and I got spoiled fierce. My favorite gift was Moonspell's Alpha Noir/Omega White album. It was an LE box set that came with a necklace and poster. Most importantly, the album is sublime. You should buy it.
I also reviewed Pure Ice's Vinyl Remix collection and I adored it. It's a lot of fun and takes crackle to a new level.
June came and I started my Heavy Metal Nails series. All of which have been my most visited pages, BTW. I loved doing it and I'm itching to do another metal themed series. Just need to figure out what exactly.
July continued the metal series and I did nail art that is now my most viewed post EVER. Why is it?
Yep, this is my number one. I couldn't be prouder.
I did another Moonspell inspired manicure in July as well as the raddest Corpse Paint nails. They were so awesome.
August was particularly awesome for me. I went to California and visited with family, bought a fuckton of nail polish and saw Iron Maiden in concert.
I also got a new job in August and felt so much better about myself. It was nice to have the free time I did but I needed to do something that was actually profitable.
Come September, Duck Football started and I celebrated my sixth wedding anniversary. Matt also ran in the Warrior Dash which ticked off a must do on his list.
October and November were both pretty "meh" months for me. I did do some things though.
I reviewed Perl Fashion Nail strips and loved them.
Matt bought me another Chanel
This Milani is utterly frustrating but so captivating
December was busy as anticipated but I sure got to show some fun polishes.
I got loaded with gift cards but this polish from Victoria's Secret really won me over. Not to mention, I made out like crazy at VS. Good times.
I tried out the DIY Liquid sand technique and did a jelly sandwich that I had longed to try out.
More importantly, I found a glorious, glow-y, shimmery purple polish at Hot Topic that came in a skull shaped bottle.
So there ya have it. I have much to come in the new year. I picked up a Project Runway polish, Matt got me a Sally gift card, he also bought me the new Sally Hansen Insta Gel nail strip kit and my folks gave me a super cute nail polish set. I also have a little something from the grand Born Pretty store to show you as well. The new year will be starting out right!
I'm hoping for a grand 2013 and that it will also be filled with tons of nail polish. Happy New Year friends. May your year bring you health, wealth, love and pretty nails!
