Top 5 Favorite Polishes Released in 2014 (The most mentions in ranking order)

Orly Mirrorball, Orly Hot Tropics, and KBShimmer Hexy Bikini were all on my Top 25 of 2014 list! 

Some interesting observations this year based on the results....

  •  Orly seems to crawling back into the spotlight after a 2-3 year slump. What's funny though, is it was ranked the lowest in the Best Mainstream Brand of 2014 category, however, it was ranked well in summer and winter, AND two of their polishes were listed in the favorites of all year. Interesting! 
  • It seems like China Glaze is the brand who needs to step up their game. I agree, their fall collection was nice and so was The Giver, but they overwhelmed everywhere else. 
  • Zoya ranked well as always. No surprises. Zoya knows what they're doing.
  • OPI ranked well, but not the best. OPI always seems to rank on the upper average end of the spectrum every year. 
  • Essie scored low this year. Essie has always scored last or second to last in my past year's polls. I feel like they did best last year, and need to step it up.
That's a wrap on 2014! See you on the other side! 

Happy Wednesday! 


  1. I agree about Orly - I have high hopes for them in 2015! Great wrap-up, Steph!
