The Neverending Pile Challenge: Discontinued Polish


Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is a discontinued polish. I’m not really someone who will go to great lengths to get my hands on a specific polish just because it’s limited edition or something – I tend to think if you like a polish, you should be able to get it. Of course, I do buy limited editions too when I like them! This particular one I found on a sale rack at Clicks not long after I started getting into nail polish. I can’t find a lot of info on it so I’m not sure if it was available in other countries as well or not. Here it is (along with some nail art) – Yardley Glitter Glam Couture Cocktail. nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brownIt’s a spectacularly sparkly lime green full coverage microglitter polish. I actually have tried this before (even though it hasn’t appeared on my blog until now) on my toes! This is one of my favourite toenail shades. nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brownOn my thumb, index and pinkie fingers, I started with a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black and then lightly distressed it with Sinful Colors Slate and Essence Grey-t To Be Here to make it a little less stark. Once it was dry, I used tape to add the triangles of Couture Cocktail. nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brownOn my middle and ring fingers, I just used Yardley Couture Cocktail and then added the studs (from Bundle Monster, I think). It’s the first time I’ve used any of these studs too, and I’ve had them for ages. I wasn’t sure about the brown colour, but I think they go great with this lime green glitter!nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brown

I’m so glad I scooped up Couture Cocktail when I had the chance! What do you think of it?nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brownThe Neverending Pile Challenge is almost halfway!npc-graphicTake a look at some more discontinued polishes at the link:

  • vonimoller

    Gosh this mani rocks. It kind of has this spacey/alien vibe which just rocks my socks. The studs look like planets. I can’t get over it. Just fab!

    • paintedfingertips

      YES thank you! And I am crazy about Couture Cocktail. It’s stunning, I guess it’s not for everyone though but I looove it

  • WonderfulWolf

    Love these! They look so weird/unusual in a totally cool way!

    • paintedfingertips

      Yay, thank you! It’s such a weird but awesome polish that I had to do something weird but awesome with it 🙂

    Gorgeous, and I think that distressed black makes the look – so edgy and cool!

    • paintedfingertips

      It’s great, right?? I am SO glad I picked this up. I was only starting to get into polish at the time and I got it in a clearance bin, I almost missed it! 🙂

  • Simona LightYourNails

    That green is gorgeous! I had never heard of the brand before.

    • paintedfingertips

      Really, you hadn’t heard of Yardley? I thought they were a pretty big brand (for makeup and things more than for nail polish, though) but I guess not everywhere!

  • OrdinaryMisfit

    Urgh this is actually just annoying. I saw these polishes on the shelves and they didn’t really appeal to me at all. Now I can cry. This is so utterly gorgeous! I neeeeeeed

    • paintedfingertips

      I am so glad I got one, I was only just getting into nail polish so I could’ve easily missed it 🙂
