The 2011 Nail Polish Awards
We painted on hundreds of polishes to find the best -- and the worst. See which ones deserve a place on your manicured hands
Best bottle designThe winner: Butter London 3 Free Lacquers, $14
Why we picked it: "The bottle is different from the usual circular shape and is simple in design," Sharon says. Adds Meghan: "The Butter London bottles are so pretty -- almost too pretty to be relegated to my old nail polish bag with all of the other plain-looking bottles. And don't be fooled by the square top. When I first saw it, I wondered if it would be awkward to hold and therefore make applying the polish more difficult. But the square top comes off completely, revealing a little round brush top that's very easy to maneuver."
Honorable mentions go to: Nars Nail Polish, $17, and CND Nail Lacquer, $9, as both impressed us with their sleek bottle design.
