It's an Addiction I Tell You.

I always have the best intentions of cutting back on my polish expenditures, especially since we've got a trip to California planned for next month.

Unfortunately, the moment I walk into my nail supply store of choice, all sense seems to leave me.  This is Steady As She Rose from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection (of which I got all but one).  In full sun I can see the "rose" but honestly, more often than not it appears more of a very light pinkish purple than rose and fits in perfectly with the likes of Done Up in Deco and Parlez Vouz OPI.  Steady As She Light Purple just doesn't have the same ring to it though.

I find this shade to be quite flattering in it's subtle non-assuming way, and as usual for OPI, the formula is quite lovely to apply aside from a wee bit of drag around the edges..  This is two coats. 

I'll be honest, I did get the silver shatter, but as of yet, haven't had the desire to try it.  Maybe I'm just ok with living vicariously through other nail bloggers at the moment because there is certainly no shortage of shatter swatches.

Doesn't this make you wonder what the next "big thing" will be though?  Before shatter there was holo, what would you like to see as the next big thing for nails? 

So I know I'm becoming pretty flaky about my posting, I like posting every other day-ish, but they've increased my hours at work and school is becoming more of a pain and when I should be studying I'm daydreaming about other projects and when I go to do other projects I feel guilty for  not doing homework so nothing ends up getting done really.  Ug, remind me how great it's going to be having a degree 'cause I'm not seeing it at the moment. 
I do want you my wonderful readers to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to stop by to read my sporadic postings and commenting.  You're the best! 


  1. I really love that shade!

    I like pink polishes, but I find it's hard to find the "right" one. I think I'll have to try this one.

  2. I'm there with you...totally addicted lol


I really do appreciate your comments and I try to respond to all of them either directly via email or here in the comments section if you're set to "no reply".
