Bottle Pics & Where To Buy Discontinued Forsythe Polishes

As promised, here are some bottle pictures of the discontinued Forsythe polishes that I haven't swatched yet. I had to photograph them indoors because of the rain, so I apologize for the lighting glare. If you're interested in getting any of these shades (also see my Forsythe label for the 8 shades I have swatched that aren't included in these photos), eMail Yen at Victoria Nail Supply and tell her which ones you want (she only ships within the U.S.). She's been wanting to list them on her site, but hasn't had the time to do that. When she told me about them, I was so excited that I told her I wanted to order one of every color she had--now had I seen them prior, I wouldn't have actually done that! Some of them are nothing out of the ordinary, but there are quite a few others that I'm really happy with. She tells me that they have limited quantities, between 6 and 12 of each shade, and they're $2.00 each.

Above & Below - Group 1: The quickest way for me to do this was to lay them flat to show the color, then show their labels (click to enlarge) so you know the names. The top row above matches the top row below, while the bottom row above matches the bottom row below.
Below - Group 2
Note: The lilac one in the top row on the far left has a faded label. I believe it's called Shimmering Lilac.
Below - Group 3

Below - Group 4
Note: The mint green on the bottom row has no label, so I don't know the name. Maybe just refer to it as the mint green one!
For those of you who like older discontinued polishes, I hope this helps you out! If you need any more information such as the finish type explained better than the photos do, or questions about the shades and how they might compare to some more recent colors, leave me a comment or send me an eMail and I'll try to answer your questions. I wish I had time to swatch them all right now, but if there's something you'd like to see, I'll try my best to get it done!


  1. thanks for this info of WHERE you got them! Excellent!

  2. Bunny~you're welcome! I received mine right when Yen went on vacation, so I wanted to verify that she had more available before I said where I bought them :)

  3. Thanks so much Mary. I love to get the older polishes. There are some that you've already swatched that I wanted. Hope they're still available.
