Top 9 Favorite Mani’s from 2016

There has been a “Best 9 of 2016” feature running around Instagram for the last couple weeks, you’ve probably seen it. The problem with it is the results are all skewed from IG changing their algorithm 5-6 months ago. Everything it pulled up for me was from the beginning of the year, and I feel like it didn’t give an accurate portrayal, so I’m doing my own!

Favorite Manicures of 2016 *includes press samples

I waded through all my various albums to come up with these, and I may not remember much if anything about them. So you’re mostly just going to get the pictures, but I know you don’t mind! 🙂

Do you have a favorite from these? I couldn’t pick one favorite, otherwise it would be my Top 1 Favorite manis. 🙂

Admittedly I have had a hard time getting excited about the New Year, but I am very excited to see what blogging adventures are in store for me. May 2017 bring lots of beautiful polish and nail art!

Until next time, stay polished!
