Twinsie Tuesday: Discontinued Polish

 This week's theme is Discontinued polish. I haven't really gone out of my way to get my hands on a discontinued polish, so at first I wasn't sure what polish I was going to use for this week's theme. I probably would have just gone with China Glaze Party Hearty since I know that came out for Christmas 2010 collection. After doing some research (note typing in random names of polish that I owned) I discovered from Rebecca likes nails that I owned a discontinued polish, enter Sally Hansen Lime Lights (shown on my center fingers). So I sat it aside anxiously awaiting to post about it.

Then on a trip to Dollar Tree I came across Maybelline Express Finish Blue Water. I picked it up because it looked cool and I had nothing like it. When I got home, I searched Google and discovered via ebay that this polish was apparently discontinued as well. Notice that it is going for $12.99 on ebay and I got it for $1.06 at Dollar Tree. I also picked up Violet Water and plan to layer it over a flakie for an attempt at NFU 51 inspired mani.

I layered both of these discontinued polishes over NYC Little Italy because alone they are both very sheer.
