OPI Skull and Glossbones

Note to self: Don't try to take pictures late in the day.  Sigh.  So this color doesn't look as great in the sun as it should.  It's a light grey, no yellow to it.  Skull & Glossbones from the OPI Brights "Pirates" collection is one that I thought wasn't going to really wear well on me (or just be too dull) but I was pleasantly surprised.  I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 2 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat (which I added two mini bottles of Rapi-Dry too before realizing they were different top coats.  Oops.).


Do you like the huge chunk I somehow took out of my bottle?  I'm not sure exactly when this broke, but the OPI bottles are made of thick glass so it didn't affect the polish at all.  You can see how red my fingers look (again, the sun) but that this is a nice putty grey.


Here in the shade, the color is much truer to life.  It's a putty grey with no yellow, delightfully creamy - not watery like my Steady As She Rose.  


Indoors with the flash looks a lot like the shade - although you can seem some streaky un-evenness on my index finger.  My index finger is giving me all kinds of issues right now - I have a cut cuticle on the side, and my cuticles need to be cleaned up - polish is pooling around them.  I'll get it done, promise!


Overall - a good office nude, and the name is pretty darn cute.  I want to see if I have some dupes since it is a creme but I'm still having to hold back on comparisons.
