Old School Mani: Milani Lavender Twinkle

Why hello all you lovely polish lovers out there. How have you all been? I've been having an absolutely awesome day so far and I hope you've been having the same! Today's mani is a throw back to the old school days -- the days when I had no clue how to properly appreciate nail polish. Yes... this polish is an oldie but a goodie. It was recently given to me by a wonderful fellow polish lover who I got to know through this awesome online community. She not only fulfilled several of my long time lemmings, but she also introduced me to some fabulous polishes that I never even knew existed before my time! It is only appropriate, of course, that I share this wonderful beauty with you all. So here I have for you Milani Lavender Twinkle...













Ahhh!!! You must enlarge the pictures to fully appreciate the beauty of this polish in all it's glory.  This was 4 coats >_< I usually don't like doing that many coats but trust me, this one was worth it (even with some shrinkage due to my fast dry top coat). Not only is it a soft lavender-grey, it also comes packed with hints of blue and purple shimmer. I couldn't help but stare at it all day especially when it caught the sun and just sparkled like mad! Unfortunately, this one is long discontinued (as are some other fabulous ones no doubt). I'm sure there are a ton of beauties that came out before I started getting into nail polish but I feel pretty lucky that I own this one. What do you guys think? Are there any polishes "before your time" when you wish you had been a nail polish fiend fanatic? ^_^

I love this color! This one has been on my wishlist forever, and I think it will stay there since I'm sure it's long gone from anywhere. It's gorgeous!

@StardustStephanie - Aww! I can't believe there are just sooo many polishes out there that I *NEED* now hahaha. I didn't even know about this beauty until recently too! I'm a little scared to do research because I know my lemming wishlist is just gonna keep growing... lol!
