Top Ten Polishes I Hope To Find in 2012

This is my third year writing this post (wow, how time flies! See 2010 here and 2011 here) and I am such a fan of lists and putting your wishes down on paper, or a blog entry in this instance, that I am going to do it again. Not only because it seems to have some sort of cosmic HTF attracting powers when I do these posts, but also because it’s fun to look back upon lemmings fulfilled.

2011 was a good year on many fronts, especially for ticking things off the ol’ wishlist. Rarities procured in the last 12 months, but not part of my 2011 top ten include:

NARS Mash Rimmel Amazon Sally Hansen Jealous Frost Revlon Laser Lavender, Revlon Crimson Shimmer, Maybelline Copper Chick Rimmel Sonic
Chi Chi Amazon Chanel Cobra MAC Mint Julep, MAC Superstar, MAC Cyber Creative Raven Revlon Zings
Chanel Metallic Vamp Creative Last Call Creative Magic Biba Battle Dress Lancome Pop Petrol
Dior Marine Blueberry NARS Arabian Nights Clarins Metallica Revlon Night Spell Chanel Lame, Chanel Matador
NARS Mash, Rimmel Amazon, Sally Hansen Jealous Frost, Revlon Laser Lavender, Revlon Crimson Shimmer, Maybelline Copper Chick, Rimmel Sonic, Chi Chi Amazon, Chanel Cobra, MAC Mint Julep, MAC Superstar, MAC Cyber, Creative Raven, Revlon Jungle Zing, Revlon Gold Zing, Revlon Night Zing, Revlon Really Zing, Chanel Metallic Vamp, Creative Last Call, Creative Magic, Biba Battle Dress, Lancome Pop Petrol, Dior Marine Blueberry, NARS Arabian Nights, Clarins Metallica, Revlon Night Spell, Chanel Lame, Chanel Matador.

Of the ten (or so) that I listed last year, I was actually lucky enough thanks to some amazing friends to tick a couple of them off the list! I also managed to snag one more lemming right at the end of the year when a lovely reader spotted Revlon Hot Roxx on eBay and emailed me about it. Too awesome!

Illamasqua Boo Illamasqua Boo
Illamasqua Boo was a bittersweet gift from Scrangie and The Girl With A Bow. After my bunny Boo passed away, these two tracked down this for me and I seriously blubbered all over the place like a big fat goof when I opened the package. You girls are amazing.

Color Club Neon Teal Color Club Neon Teal
Color Club Neon Teal (!!#@#@#$@#$@$@%!!) was a surprise from a long time friend who just so happens to be the best darn Dusty Hunter in California. I’m still grinning at the fact that I get to tick this one off, thanks so much C.

China Glaze Sunburst
Pictured here with Lippmann Today Was A Fairy Tale is China Glaze Sunburst! Also procured but not pictured is Cherry Bomb and Stardust. Yep that’s right – I now have a FULL SET of vintage China Glaze String Glitters. BOOYAH. I actually ended up with two bottles of Sunburst this year – and thank you to the lovely ladies who made that happen!!

So while I didn’t clear the list entirely, I made a pretty good dent in it! So let’s get to this years list!

ZINGSImage and Image
I’m still looking for Mango Zing, Cherry Zing and also an unknown one that belongs with my European Zings. Plus, there may be more that I don’t know about. I want them all. ALL OF THE ZINGS. ALLL OF THEMMMM. EDIT: MangoZing FOUND!! 2013, CherryZing found 2014!

Super old gorgeous blue green metallic from Lancome. YES PLEASE.

Probably not unique but I am a SUCKER for those old Color Club logo bottles. Beautiful pink jelly with multi coloured fleck glitter.

Gold green duochrome goodness. Do I really need to say anything else?

Practically prehistoric China Glaze streaky pale frosty hot mess. Don’t judge me. IT’S GREEN.

There are apparently two versions of this gorgeous inky purple shimmer from NARS. I’m not picky, I’ll take either!

Gorgeous green creme with copper shimmer in the huge litre bottles (okay exaggeration) that Orly used to sell polish in. I have heard that it is streaky and sheer. Also – don’t care.

Jelly Red with silver glass flecks aaaahhh huminahuminahumina. PLUS IT’S CHANEL TOO. OMG.

All I want is All I Want Is Purple. A Purple version of a Night Sky polish.

Gorgeous Green/Brown/Blue Revlon Multichrome. Been after this one for years.

Thank you to everyone who made 2011 a lemming squashing year for me. I hope you all find your unicorns in 2012. Adios!

    Chi Chi Amazon looks like my kind of thing (and those Creatives, and the Macs, and the Optic Illusion thingies….hell basically everything on that list I want!) My best buy of this year was Streetwear Toad (the awesome shiny version) for $2 NZ :’) Tears of joy were almost wept.
