Pointless Cafe's Best of 2013 Part 4: Top 15 Indie Polishes and Honorable Mentions



Well it's that time of year again! Time for my personal favorites of the year. And it was NOT easy this year for sure because this has been the best year for polish that I can remember...ever.

Part FOUR





So here's how I've decided to break it down - this list will appear in each Best Of post and be linked as I post for easy reference.

1: Top 15 Mainstream Brand Polishes - published
2: Top 10 Boutique Brand Polishes - published
3: Highlight: Top Five Indie Brands (with my favorites from each) - published
4: Top Indie Polishes of 2013 (excluding the Highlighted Brands) - published
5: Brand of the Year (with my top 15 from this brand) - published
6: Polish of the Year - published

Continued after the jump...




Tonight I'll be showing you all of my favorite indie polishes that aren't highlighted elsewhere in my Best Of posts. I narrowed and narrowed and I just couldn't get it narrowed anymore! This year was really stellar.

  2. Holy cow! Another page of gorgeous polishes. There are so many pretties coming out by so many different companies now that I just can't keep up; and I'm so broke that I can't even try. That's why I live vicariously through you and your amazing pics. :)
