It's that time of year! I've been compiling my Top 20 list since summer. I've added a bunch...scaled back...added a bunch...scaled back...contemplated my choices..etc..etc..multiple times. This is a difficult process!
Unlike last year, I will be featuring polishes that were released in 2011. If I were to do all my favorites from any year I'd be posting favorites for a month. The good thing though is that there are so many colors this year that were spectacular!
Without further ado, here is Part 1 of my Top 20 list. These are in no particular ranking order. They are in alphabetical order due to how my photo album is set up.
a-england Lady of the Lake---The Mythicals Collection
When a-england polishes first burst on to the scene. I knew somehow I had to get my hands on the two holo polishes. Lady of the Lake is stunning. I love the pigmentation of the purple with the scattered holo. Check out my full review.
a-england Tristam---The Mythicals Collection
Same story with Tristam as Lady of the Lake. If I had to choose I think Tristam inches just slightly ahead of Lady of the Lake. The base on this is beautiful deep shade of navy unlike any color I've seen before. This is scattered holo done right. There is a perfect balance of holoness and pigmentation of the base.

Butter London Wallis---Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection
This is so not a typical color for me. I think that's why I ended up loving it so much. This shade is stunning the green-gold shimmer looks rich. This color truly took me by surprise. I ended up wearing it for a full week. I did not want to take it off! Check out my full review.
China Glaze Life Preserver---Anchors Away Spring 2011 Collection
I love this dusty take on a orange. It is a very flattering shade, and it's unique. You know those colors that you can wear with just about anything? I found this color to really suit any attire I wore. It's not too bright, it's not too pale...it's just right! Check out my full review.
China Glaze Papaya Punch---Island Escape Summer 2011 Collection
Never, ever, would I have imagined putting a bright orange on my Top 20 list. This color changed orange for me. I started purchasing more oranges after my experience with Papaya Punch. This color is just fun, it pops, and makes a statement. This was one of my favorite colors this past summer. I wore it on the cruise I went on to the Caribbean, and it suited the atmosphere perfectly! Check out my full review.
