rebecca's favorite polishes of 2011 - #1


Hi polish lovers! I'm more excited than I should be to show you my favorite polish of 2011.
As I said before, I really enjoyed putting together this series and I hope you guys enjoyed reading it.
(And I hope some of you found some polishes to love!)

My number one polish was a no-brainer. I struggled choosing the positions of the last nine but this one was always number one.
I won't keep you waiting any longer!

Drum roll...


OPI - Teenage Dream is my number one favorite polish of 2011!
This pretty baby came out at the very beginning of 2011 and it has been my favorite from this year ever since.
As you likely know, this is from the Katy Perry collection.
You may also know that I have a thing for Katy, but my thing for this polish actually started a few months before my thing for Katy! Haha. So I don't just like this polish because I like Katy. It's special all on its own.

When this came out I was basically stalking every salon and beauty supply because I was dying to get my hands on it. I was so excited when I finally got it! It was one of the first polishes I blogged about because I got it shortly after beginning my blog! We've been together since the beginning.
See the original (and awful) post here.


Teenage Dream is everything you could want in a girly polish. Pink and glittery.
Pink is not my favorite polish color - as you know I am a purple girl - but this one just owns my heart.
It is too pretty and sparkly and looks so cute all the time.
If I had to wear one polish every day for the rest of my life it would be this one. Really! I don't know why but it just is. It makes me happy.


The base of Teenage Dream is a light pink, very subtle, but where I am so pale it stands out against my skin more than it would on others.
The base is jelly and it is packed with small microglitter and small silver holographic hex glitter. The holo glitter makes this sparkle so much in the light. Just check out all the rainbow pieces in the bottle in the above picture!


Here is my pretty polish along with my pretty perfume! This is Purr, Katy's first perfume.
(I'm planning a non-polish favorite things of 2011 post... I'll talk more about Purr in that one!)

Well guys, there you have it! That was my top ten polishes of 2011! Do you think I picked some winners or is my taste totally different than yours?

I'll recap the posts for you:
#1 OPI - Teenage Dream
#2 Zoya - Caitlin
#3 Orly - Frolic
#4 Zoya - Dannii
#5 OPI - Skull & Glossbones
#6 Zoya - Neeka
#7 Color Club - Space Case
#8 Butter London - No More Waity. Katie
#9 Lynnderella - Gotta Love Brains
#10 Cult Nails - Unicorn Puke

Here's a picture of them all together! (But excuse the fact that I mixed up the order of 4 and 5 and I am way too lazy to retake the photo!)


Pretty easy to see what colors I like... But I am shocked there is no teal or turquoise in the bunch! I guess not a lot of good teals came out this year. (I wonder what my top ten of 2012 will look like?!)

Later I will make a little post about some of the polishes that almost made my top ten. Gotta show the other ones some attention, too.

That's all for today. Go buy yourself Teenage Dream if you don't already have it. Because I said so!
Be sure to check out Kayla's #1 polish, too!

  1. I can totally see why people love Teenage Dream, it's just such a pretty, girly color. Being a blue lover, I'm more of a OPI Last Friday Night fan!

  2. This one reminds me of China Glaze Carnival Lights! :) But that one is so sheer and doesn't dry at all.
    I think Teenage Dream looks really nice on your nails!

  3. I totally agree about the loveliness because of it being pink and sparkly. I see you like a lot of pink and purple like me ;0).

  4. Aww but maybe you're just not a teal or turquoise person? I think I liked Mermaid's Tears more than Skull and Glossbones :P

    And technically, the Nicki Minaj collection dropped this year too and Fly = captured my heart. But teal is my faaaavorite color so :P

    Either way, I enjoyed keeping up with the top 10! I only have 2 (Teenage Dream and S&G) but the others are beautiful. I'm eying your Lynnderella and Unicorn Puke jealously haha

  7. Great pick! I love this color. I'm usually not a pink fan in general, but it's so pretty and glittery.

  8. I love your pick and all the colors are amazing, except Orly and Color Club (those vivid pink colors are not 'my' thing).
    It's so nice to see all of them together and now you know what you like the most
