Best Nail Polish Colors Of 2012: Chanel 'June,' Essie 'Butler Please' And More Lacquers We Love (PHOTOS)

Maybe we should give our nails a breather... Nah!

To say that the editors at HuffPost Style are obsessed with nail polish would be a huge understatement. We spend countless hours on the weekends accessorizing our manicures with nail art, go to extreme lengths to road test celebrity nail trends and take reporting on the best top coats just as seriously as Michelle Obama's style.

Much like the backbreaking purses we tote our lives around in, we found it difficult to stop reaching for these nine nail shades that stunned us with their amazing hues, finishes and wearability. Flash fingers painted in our top nail polish colors of the year and you'll definitely turn heads.

The "Best Beauty Products Of 2012" covers the top cosmetics, skin care and hair products out of the hundreds that have crossed our editors' desks this year. Winners are chosen through expert analysis based on quality, value and efficacy. Want to nominate your favorite product? Share it in our comments or contact our beauty team at
