NOTD- OPI Sparrow Me The Drama + China Glaze Glam

This color exceeded my expectations. I wasn’t expecting this to be so pretty at all! I thought the formula was good, as I didn’t need more than 2 coats for a flawless finish. Sparrow Me The Drama is a slightly dusty medium toned pink. I thought China Glaze’s Glam would be a good pair with this, although it’s not my favorite combo for this glitter (which I will swatch on here eventually!), I still like the small and medium sized pink glitter over this shade!

What is your favorite pink polish?

NOTD: OPI Stranger Tides

I didn’t have extremely high hopes for this nail polish, but I still thought it’d be in the middle ranks from this collection. Boy, was I wrong. I LOVE THIS NAIL POLISH. I’d say it is my 2nd favorite so far (I think I have 1 left), but my favorite to date is Skull and Glossbones. Stranger Tides is pretty much a flawless application in 2 coats. I am trying a new topcoat and I think that helped it out a lot too because my last one was a streaky mess.

Say it with me….GORGEOUS.

P.S. I have a nail art post coming up tomorrow with this same manicure- It’s a ring finger detail 😉

NOTD: OPI Planks A Lot & Black Shatter

This is such a gorgeous color- it’s unique to my collection. I did experience some streaking, and then when I applied topcoat (OPI RapiDry in mini bottle) It became even streakier (thank you tiny brush!) and bubbled slightly. Thankfully it looks completely fine. At least from a few feet away 😉

OPI Skull and Glossbones Swatch

This polish is from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection that launched earlier this month. It’s a really nice light/medium gray. In some lights it’d look more warm toned and some it would look cool. I noticed streaking on my right hand more because it is harder to paint that hand since it is my dominant hand.

This one lives up to it’s name-it’s really glossy!

Also, I attempted to do a cleaner mani and it worked out pretty well. I didn’t even have to do clean up. I just need to slow down :)
What do you think of this color?

OPI and Pirates of the Caribbean Shiver me Timbers!

Sorry for the cheesy title, but I just can’t resist…
OPI has decided to launch a collaborative collection with the people from Pirates! I believe they are launching this around May, maybe the same time as the Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides movie? I am not a fan of the Pirates franchise, it’s just not my fave movie genre, but LOOK at these colors! And…..SILVER SHATTER!!! Here are the press photos:


From what I can see, the collection is kind of a hit and miss. But, of course I’ll have to see it in person. Knowing myself, I will at least be getting 1 or 2. I can’t pass up that Silver Shatter! You know, I love my Black Shatter, so now I am hooked! The colors that look pretty intriguing and unique to me are: Mermaid Tears (It looks like a dirty teal maybe?), Skulls and Glossbones, and Stranger Tides. I don’t really know how the colors translate to the movies, but I don’t really think of the pastel pink and purple when I think of Jack Sparrow…hahaha! I can’t wait to see swatches of this collection! What colors would you want to pick up?
