That's where you come in. In the comments below, let me know if you have a favorite polish/brand for the colors I'm undecided on, or one that's on your wishlist. I'd appreciate your suggestions.

4th Row: China Glaze in Flip Flop Fantasy, OPI in Suzi's Hungary Again, OPI in Red Lights Ahead... Where?, Essie in Head Mistress, Zoya Pixie Dust in Chyna

My wishlist from my phone

OPI in Do You Lilac It?
This has been on my wishlist for a year.

OPI in You're Such A Budapest
This appears to have a slight hint of blue to it.

Essie in Bond With Whomever
Such a pretty shade, possibly my favorite, but I'd have to judge the bottle in person to see how thin the formula is.

L'Oreal in Royalty Reinvented
Never tried their polish, but so many people have been using it lately and I'm very curious. 

I won't be purchasing all of these polishes, but I would really like one light purple. What is your favorite from either those listed above, or perhaps one that I may not have mentioned?

OPI in Glitzerland

OPI in Pros & Bronze
This may be too dark for my skin tone. 

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Gilty Pleasure
I like the brush design on this line of polish from Sally Hansen.

Essie in Penny Talk
A pretty rose gold. I've been wanting a rose gold polish for a while, but haven't seen this in stores. 

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Silver Lining
I can't remember if someone mentioned this shade in real life or on a blog, but I've been wanting to try it. 

Orly in Winter Wonderland
Saw this on Pinterest (follow me!). So BEAUTIFUL!!

Zoya Pixie Dust in Godiva
When it's applied without a top coat, this reminds me of beach sand because of its color and texture. 

My current silver and gold polishes are beginning to get gloppy. You know that thing that happens to them when they get too old? I want new ones, but I'd like to try out a couple new shades I feel there are so many metallic shades available that I can't possibly keep up. Which metallics do you think are a must? 

China Glaze in Flip Flop Fantasy
Hot pink bordering on neon. Not sure how this would look with my fair skin, but it's a great summer shade. 
OPI in Red Lights Ahead... Where? 
This has a slight hint of orange. Reminds me of an OPI polish I used years ago and loved (if only I could remember the name!)

OPI in Suzi's Hungary Again 
Medium Pink that looks to have a coral vibe going on.

Essie in Head Mistress
Pretty red, possibly more for the fall and winter, but I think it's a beautiful shade.

Zoya Pixie Dust in Chyna
When a top coat is applied, this reminds me of ruby red slippers!   

OPI in Dating A Royal
I don't own anything like this royal blue, so out of the box for me, but I fell for it when I saw it swatched.

What polishes do you think are missing from my list, and that I should check out? Let me know what your favorites are for Spring and Summer.

    1. I think I'm with you Katy, Essie's Bond With Whomever is the one I'm leaning towards. I'll have to do side by side comparisons in person to see what the bottles look like against my hand before making my final call.
