The Best of 2010 Round Up: Nail Edition

2010 has been the year when I really enjoyed mucking about with me talons! Here are my favourites:

Nail stamping has been a right old relaxing past time this year. Konad image plates have not let me down as yet and I am glad that Mayaari nudged me into trying the Bundle Monster plates too.
My most used Konad plate this year has to be the M57 plate but I also love the M71.

Best Nails Bits & Bobs 2010

Creative Nail Design Solar Oil has to be my favourite nail and cuticle treatment. Do to my OCD hand washing nut-caseness, my nails became rather weak and started to peel. After using this oil continually (twice a week), the treatment penetrated deep into my nails and stopped the peeling and now my nails are strong and healthy again.

OPI Correct and Clean Up nail pen. This is fantastic for nail art junkies. It has a firm tip that allows me to tidy up my nail mishaps easily.

ELF Cuticle Pusher. Cheap and chips and brilliant to use.

Top coats can really support a nail polish's finish, colour and durability and these are my most used in 2010.

Nails inc: Kensington top coat for it's super glossy finish. Albert Bridge top coat for it's super fast drying capabilities and the Konad top coat for sealing nail stamp art.

My go to Nails inc Kensington base coat caviar for protecting my nail.

Do you have any nail faves from 2010? Care to share?
