My Favorite Manicures of 2014

It's almost the end of 2014, so it's of course time to list some favorites of past year and wrap up the last 12 months. I'm doing this post about my favorite manicures of this year and later I'm also going to list my favorite polishes of 2014. I've done similar listings on previous years too (2013, 2012, 2011) and I've usually started with my favorite polishes, but this time I thought I'd show you first my favorite manicures as it seemed a bit more easy to do. I'm still working on my list of favorite polishes and hopefull I'll be able to narrow it down enough so that I can post my list tomorrow. 

But anyhow, here's my favorite manicures of 2014! And as it was hard enough to narrow these down to 20 favorites, these aren't in any particular order. I added links to the posts, so if you have originally missed some of these, you can go and see them now or if you just want to know more about the manicure and the products I used for it. 

Oh and I really have to thank our #ablecaw14 challenge as without it I probably wouldn't have had so many manicures to choose from! The challenge really made me do way more nail art and manicures in general and I ended up picking 9 challenge manicures here, so almost half of my favorites came from the challenge.
