OPI Steady As She Rose

The boyfriend purchased Legos: Pirates of the Caribbean for us to play on the xBox 360, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to get back to swatching the OPI Brights: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection that OPI came out with this year.  While I was editing pictures, I couldn't stop singing "Steady, As She Goes" and couldn't figure out what it was from, but thank you YouTube... it was a song I discovered years ago in my radio DJ days.







So back to the polish...  I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 2 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat.  Quite sadly, I found this polish to be super runny and watery, pooling into my cuticles.  Boo.


In the sun you can see how this is a pretty pale pink - doesn't look like it's as much of a problem child as it was.


In the shade it looks all nice too!  You can see how it was giving me issues on my index finger though.  I do need to get another manicure (sigh).  Granted I only get my natural nails shaped up and cuticles cleaned up but still.  Oh to find time...


Finally indoors with the flash - it is a pretty pink, definitely work appropriate I'd think.  It's also a nice creme to be stamped over with Konad or a bit of shatter over it.  (Be thinking of some nail art ideas, dear readers... hint hint)

  4. I have this polish too and absolutely adore it. I don't have any problems with it's formula, which is pretty much THE classic OPI formula. Maybe I got lucky with my bottle :)

  6. It's a shame the formula gave you trouble; it's a really pretty color. Sadly, I can't pull this color off because I have too much pink in my skin tone. :-/
