2010 Top 25 NOTDs

I am fully aware that is so SO late LOL.  You are welcome to talk as much crap as you want =)  I intended to put this up in January ... didn't start working on picking them until February ... don't think I touched it at all in March ... and finally decided I needed to just freaking sit down & finish it before April was gone too!  So, here we are ... not too much talking but lots of pics =)

It started out as a top 20 - not in any particular order, kind of loosely broken down by plain colors vs. fancier nail art manis - but I decided I needed a separate category for water marbles & so tacked on an additional 5 slots.  So here we go, starting off with my top 5 favorite water marbles: 

Christmas Poinsettia Water Marble (original post HERE):

Green Holo Bronze Water Marble (original post HERE):

Halloween Flames Water Marble (original post HERE):

Poolside Neon Rainbow #2 Water Marble (original post HERE):

And my Valentine's Day Water Marble (original post HERE) - which isn't my favorite due to the look, but because for some reason it has become my most watched, most popular YT vid - 1.4 million views & counting:

Now on to my favorite manicures of 2010:

PHD Book Cover Challenge (original post HERE):

China Glaze Swing Baby (original post HERE) - which made it into the manicure section, even with no nail art, partly because I can't decide what color exactly it is, and partly because it was one that I got SOOO many compliments on & it was just so awesome that it didn't even need any nail art:

New Year's Bling (original post HERE):

The inspiration for the New Year's Bling, Blue Glitter Sponging (original post HERE):

Last years Easter Zigzag funky french (original post HERE):


PHD Summer Sponging - Ocean Waves (original post HERE):

New Year's Fireworks (original post HERE):

Stained Glass with Sinful Mint Apple & Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure (original post HERE):

OK, finally my favorite colors of 2010 =)
Favorite brown/bronzish - Nubar Jewel (original post HERE):

Favorite purple (a category with intense competition as you may have guessed! - Zoya Zara (original post HERE):
Favorite holo (yes I know "holo" isn't a color on its own...) - Nubar Reclaim (original post HERE):

So, a very belated year in review for 2010 =)  I was really HARD to pick just these few.  If you'd like to see more of my old NOTDs, you can check out my NOTD Slideshows on YouTube HERE.
