Berry Good Looking at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

I could not for the life of me pick my very top favorite so I will be sharing in alphabetical order today! I’m beginning with Cupcake Polish’s Berry Good Looking. I ordered this one from Color4Nails and it is available for purchase. This one is opaque in 1 coat but deepens a little at 2 and has a very strong holographic shift.

You Sit On A Throne Of Lies at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is Dollish Polish‘s You Sit On A Throne Of Lies. This one was from the Elf collection 2 years ago I believe and is no longer available. If you see this one in a destash and you are a fan of jelly sandwiches snag it up! This is a red jelly base filled with a ton of different size and shaped holographic glitters. Application does require a small amount of glitter manipulation but no fishing.

Mirror Mirror On The Wall at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is Femme Fatale‘s Mirror Mirror On The Wall. I love every single Femme Fatale polish I have ever owned (which is, in my opinion, no where near enough of them!) and this one is no exception! Opaque at 2 coats, this one is filled with holographic glitter and a gorgeous purply/pink shimmer. Mirror Mirror does dry down to a textured finish. This one is getting hard to come by but it is in stock at Live Love Polish now!

Lavish Polish Dear Darling at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is Dear Darling, a nude crelly base filled with matte hot pink hexes from Lavish Polish. One Day I swear I will own a full size of this, it’s just such a fun easy to wear polish!  Opaque in just 2 coats.

Our Little Infinity at 3 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is Our Little Infinity, a fan favorite from Lyn B Designs! If you only can own 1 polish from Lyn B, pick this one! This is a purple to orange metallic multichrome base filled with scattered holographic glitter. 2-3 coats for full opacity.

Mermaid Tears as a topper over Zoya Willa under artificial lighting.

Next up is Mermaid Tears from the Mermaid Trio by MDJ Creations! If there is one thing MDJ Creations does well it is make beautifully complex polishes and this one is no different! Mermaid Tears will shine in indoor lighting from the blue to green iridescent glitters, dance in sunlight from all of the holographic glitter, and glow soft blue at night in the dark. It just doesn’t get much better than that, this is another polish that I *need* a full size of!

To Have And To Holo at 1 coat and stamped under artificial lighting.

Next up is To Have And To Holo by M Polishes, my favorite silver holographic polish of all time! This is intended to be a stamping polish and it does an amazing job, it can also be used as a traditional polish. Very pigmented and opaque, the maker is currently on leave but this should be available again soon!

#megslips at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is a polish I hauled recently from Nailnation 3000, #megslips from the Walking Dead inspired collection! This one is opaque in 1-2 coats and is such a gorgeous, intense, blue base red linear holographic and a definite must have on my list!

Sloppy Unicorn at 3 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is a polish that is near and dear to me heart, Sloppy Unicorn! Molly, the maker of Shinespark, is am absolute sweetheart and I am honored to call her a friend. She named this polish from the Space Unicorns collection after me! I will have a swatch and review of this collection coming very very soon, the entire line is absolutely incredibly but I thought I would share my namesake with you today! This is the sheerest of the collection I believe but it is fully opaque in 3 coats and has a gorgeous purple to tear shift plus a ton of linear holographic goodness.

Humility at 1 coat under artificial lighting.

Last I have Humility from Virtuous Polish. I absolutely love every Virtuous Polish I own and would have seriously added them all to my top 10 if I could! These are not available anymore as Virtuous Polish is on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time. I say we start up a petition to get her to return! Her mattes especially are like nothing I’ve ever seen, they dry to a gorgeous velvety finish. The finish does wear off quickly if it comes in contact with oils or surfaces and does chip quickly without a topcoat but the finish is completely worth if. The finish literally reminds me of Vantablack but like in polish form. Come back, Virtuous Polish!!

So that rounds out my top 10 indies as of this moment, I expect this list to change a ton as I branch out and try different brands but these are all winners! I do have a ton of honorable mentions but I expect them to pop up in my top polishes for Summer next month so I will save them for then. I try to do as honest and through a review as I can because I (like many of you) do not have an infinite polish budget so I like to make my dollar count! I hope you enjoyed this list, don’t forget to head over and Check out Zenorah’s tops and give her all my loves!
