O.P.I Pirates Week- Steady as She Rose & Silver Shatter

Arrgh...

  Don't ask... I'm so excited for this movie to come out! It looks crazy good and of course I will be rocking one of my O.P.I shades when I go see it... Which one? I have yet to decide but the mani shall be awesome.

  Today I am featuring Steady as She Rose. Uh-mazing!! This one is a soft dusty Greyed-out Lavender. I don't have to stress how much I love this color, right? The formula for this color is amazing. It just kinda melted on my nails and covered perfectly in two coats. This is my Second favorite from this collection, so far. I'm really not sure how my design comes into play with the Pirates theme but something about the color of the stamp and the little jewels remind me of a treasure chest, like little flower shaped doubloons :).

   And here is Silver Shatter over Steady as She Rose. Again, another soft contrast but very beautiful. Pictured taken with Silver Shatter applied over a coat of Seche Vite to make sure the base was fully dry but no SV was used after the Silver Shatter was applied. The effect is easier to photograph this way. Plus I just freaking love the finish/effect SS adds when it dries.

  Loving.. LOVING this color! These soft, yet gritty, tones really get me going and I love how they look on my vampire hands...Can you guess what's coming tomorrow? I bet you can! 

Also, Muffin sends her love and will be back this Monday!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

  5. I've had Brisbane Bronze for several months now and never once thought to use it as a stamp. It looks -so- beautiful atop that soft lavender. GENIUS!

  10. That is such a nice shade of pink. Definitely no dupe in my collection and so versatile for designs or just by itself. Hmmm, and I am totally digging that silver shatter! Bring back Muffin, we miss her tortie goodness.

  11. You have great inspiration for this OPI collection! I love all of your nail designs!
    this one is really amazing! So classy!

    "Steady as She Rose" seems to be really close to "Panda-monium Pink", true or not?
