My Top 12 Polishes of 2012!

Hey guys! I'm a little late on this and have a few similar posts to come soon as well,
but here are my favorite 12 polishes I got in the year 2012! 
I'm just doing one instead of Indie vs Mainstream etc. These are polishes I felt blown away by, used the most or just fell in love with during the past year!

I separated them to have the more mainstream brands first then indies second!
I tried to not have too many indies included, but they really stole my heart this year!

This polish is one that Amanda included in a friends order for it taking longer to ship, so I messaged her asking if I could buy one because I loved it! So I feel even more lucky to own it since it was never for sale! This is three coats!
