    You have now given me about a million new colors to try. I can’t wait to paint my nails over the next couple months! :)

  3. Mackenzie says:

    So is it safe to say you’re a green fan?! LOL, just kidding. Emerald Sparkle looks great on you and you’ve definitely turned me into a green fan this past year.

  4. Dawn says:

    Great collection of shades… but missing my 2008 favourite Blackcherry Chutney from the OPI India Collection.

  5. CincyFan says:

    Micha – You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it

    BC101 – You know you can always just play with them when you come home :)

    Mackenzie – LOL, nope not a green fan at all. I’m more of a pink/sheer girl. What’s your favorite green?

    Dawn – That was a lot of people’s favorite. It wasn’t enough to make the top 3 in the Fanatic Favorites but it was high on the list.

  6. Erin says:

    Thanks for letting us know your favorites!
    I also love the ALU Archives, that’s a great idea since I just started reading your blog sometime last year.

  7. amanda says:

    just put on sally hansen insta-dri in jumpin’ jade, very pretty, made me think of you and your greens! hope you’ve discovered this one, it’s pretty new.

  8. Zoe W. Scott says:

    I agree that Mod About Brights is a great collection. I was surprised to see that China Glaze didn’t get make the top three of best of ’08. And OPI France did?!

  9. Zoe W. Scott says:

    PS Michelle: It would be wonderful to know your TOP 3 next year. You know, because you have such amazing taste. I own almost all of the shades you recommend… you never steer us wrong.

    I remember that you were the one to introduce me to Poshe top coat, but now you have forsaken it for Seche Vite? What happened?
