Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Discontinued Polish


Good morning polished world!  How are you all today?  It's warming up here slowly but surely.  I'm going to ignore the fact that the weather man said "scattered snow flurries" and "temperatures in the mid thirties", and look forward to Thursday when it is supposed to be 60!

Today is Tuesday, which means it is time for yet another Twinsie Tuesday!  This week we are sharing manicures using our favorite discontinued polishes.  My favorite discontinued polish is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls from The Amazing Spiderman Collection.  When this collection first was released, I ignored this gorgeous off-white polish because I thought it was stupid to pay OPI prices for a white polish.  Boy, was I wrong.  I grabbed a bottle on sale, used it, got hooked, and now every time I see a bottle, I have to buy it.

The reason being, this polish is the PERFECT base for any nail art.  It's white, but it's not so bright that it takes away from the actual design.  I think I portrayed that well in today's jelly bean manicure where I used the new China Glaze Electric Nights polishes.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • China Glaze - Plur-ple, DJ Blue My Mind, Red-Y to Rave, Treble Maker, Glow With the Flow, Home Sweet House Music

I think that if I used a regular white base like Snow Me White by Sinful Colors, the jelly beans would have been washed out or not as vibrant.  And with these new Electric Nights polishes by China Glaze, you don't want them to be lost.  But we're talking about the discontinued polish, not the brand new beautiful collection that everyone should go get.  I'll have zillions of other posts talking about how amazing these babies are.


In this photo you can see the grey tone in My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I cannot tell you how upset I am that I only have 1 backup bottle left of this beauty, and that OPI has not re-released it as part of a core collection.  I think I should start a petition.

What do you think?  Are you a fan of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls? 

Don't forget to check out the other Twinsie's posts!  I wonder if anyone else did Easter nail art with their favorite discontinued polishes!
