rebecca's favorite polishes of 2011 - #2


Hey everyone! Here we are again - ready for my #2 favorite polish of 2011?

I don't have anything clever to say before I show the photos so here we go!


Zoya - Caitlin is number two on my list of favorite polishes for 2011.
Yes, three Zoya polishes in my top 10. That's pretty crazy, considering:
1) Zoya isn't even sold here.
2) I have actively disliked them most of this year for their ignorance when it comes to shipping to Canada or other international countries.
3) Their customer service was awful when Kayla was trying to be added to their PR list, because she was Canadian.
4) I only own 7 bottles of Zoya. 7 bottles and 3 of them are in the top ten? That's pretty crazy.

So yes, I have my share of complaints about Zoya as a company but all complaints aside, they are making some awesome polish lately.
The Intimate collection (which had Caitlin and my other favorite, Dannii) was beautiful. The Feel collection is currently on the way to me and if I had received them in time, I have a feeling some of them could be favorites as well because the promo photos were gorgeous. The new True collection that just began popping up on blogs looks equally gorgeous. Zoya is killing my polish budget.
I bought 14 of them recently (not through Zoya, obviously, but through friends) and they are on the way now!

Rambling done. Here is Caitlin in her gray-purple glory.


When I stumbled upon the Intimate collection display at Ulta in Buffalo this summer I was totally excited because I really wanted Dannii but didn't expect they would still have the spring collection for sale in August.
I said to myself, "I should get another color from this collection because they're all pretty nice." So I decided on Caitlin and went on my way.
Little did I know, we would fall in love and Caitlin would become my go-to polish for the next few months.


I wore this polish about 6 times in 2 months. I haven't worn any other polish that frequently, ever. When you have as much polish as I do and one keeps calling your name, it's gotta be special. I like wearing it with and without art. It is just satisfying.


Sometimes photos may make you think this is a true gray but when you hold your nails up to something actually gray (like this hat I crocheted) you can see how purple/blue it really is.

As with the other Zoya's in my top 10, not only is this color great but the formula is a dream. 2 easy coats.

Do you have Caitlin? Do you love her as much as I do?
Or, do you have any favorite Zoya's I should know about?

#1 polish of 2011 coming tomorrow! Any pre-post guesses?

Don't forget to check out Kayla's #2!
