I hope everyone enjoyed themselves with the countdown! I didn't stay up for it because I've been, and still am, nursing a flu for a few days now. :( I had thought to come up with some nail art for the New Year but wasn't really in the mood with all the sniffing and stuff.
Instead, I shall share with you some of the collections that are said to be scheduled for release this year! I've first read about these on Inky Polisholicious and The Crimson Petal. I can't wait for them to be released!! :D
If you've gotten your tissues / hankies ready (to clean up the drool)...
First, we have some collections from OPI.
OPI: Nicki Minaj Collection
OPI: Holland Spring Collection
OPI: New York Ballet Collection
Then, we have some collections from Essie:
Essie: Spring 2012
Essie: Resort Collection
Last but not least, we have upcoming collections from China Glaze!
I am most hyped up about China Glaze's future collections and they have officially skyrocketed to one of my favorite polish brands. <3
China Glaze: Electropop Collection
China Glaze: Summer Neon
China Glaze: Safari Collection
Now, this is more up my alley - darker colors! I Herd That and I'm Not Lion are practically leaping at me - yup, you've guessed it, the sparkly ones!!Now, this is yet another collection that I'm drooling over! There are six awesome shades in this collection. Just look at the bottles, need I say more? *drools all over lappie*
More glitters!!! This time: crackled. I only have OPI's Black Shatter in my collection. It was the polish that got me started on OPI and other brands apart from the typical drugstore polishes in Singapore (like Sally Hansen, Silky Girl, etc). Having said that, I am not too sure if I am that excited over more crackle/shatter polishes. It is definitely an easy way to add some interesting effect on the nails but there is only so much shatter I can take before it becomes meh to me.
I have yet to try a magnetic polish but it is definitely on my to-try list. I'm glad that China Glaze decided to do a magnetic polish collection as well and I sure hope that it will be affordable. There are six colors in this collection and I'm eyeing the blue (Pull Me Close), the purple (Ins Chemistry) and maybe the black/grey/gunmetal too (Attraction). The collection also comes with three separate designs!
China Glaze: Crackle Glitter
China Glaze: Magnetix Collection
China Glaze: Prismatic
China Glaze: Colors from the Capitol
More drooling!! This collection is inspired by the Hunger Games trilogy - which you should definitely read if you haven't started on it yet! Just like the books, the colors are equally amazing!! Fast track, Hook and Line, Stone Cold, Smoke and Ashes, Harvest Moon, Riveting, Electrify, Luxe and Lush... even Foie Gras looks great to me (and I am not one who likes nudes / cremes)! I can't wait - for both the collection and the movie!! :D
And there, I've shared all the collections I've read about! Of course, there are new and interesting collections from other brands such as a-england but I couldn't find much info about them. Nevertheless, I'm sure you can see why I'm sooo hyped up about 2012 (and why my piggy bank is weeping)!
Which collections caught your eye? :D
