OPI Stranger Tides

I couldn't think of a clever title for this one, I think it may be too early for me, LOL!

This is OPI Stranger Tides- I got it in the mini Pirates of the Caribbean set that the Princess picked out for my birthday present.  I want to get the full size of this one, Skull and Glossbones, and Mermaid Tears- I love these colors!

Stranger Tides is a grayish green color.  I have this love of weird greens- I don't know why.  I want more!

The formula on this was pretty good- a bit streaky at first but it evened out.  I have a feeling my mini bottle will not last long!  I don't think these colors scream "pirate" to me, but they are pretty.  (though I am not sure exactly what colors would scream "pirate", LOL)

Until Later,

Pretty in pink... isn't she?

I love 80's Brat Pack movies.  Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, Sixteen Candles.  Pretty in Pink was my favorite though- I wanted to be Andie.  She was a pretty red head, I loved her clothes, and she had a cool boss.  I wanted her to end up with Duckie, I thought Blane was a douche.  (Plus I liked Jon Cryer better than Andrew McCarthy!)

I put this polish on, and all I could think of was the lyrics to "Pretty in Pink" by the Pyschedelic Furs.  Good grief, I am old!!

This is Essie Mod Squad.  I like Essie, even though I only own three.   I really need to get more...

I think this may be a summer pedi color though- it is pretty, but very pink.   It is a happy color though!!

My first Nubar polish

I finally have a decent computer, so I am back.  I was using the Princess' piece o'crap that only booted up when it felt like it, and locked up on me.  I stole Mr. Ski's Macbook, LOL!

I have been lemming Nubar Reclaim for a while now.  I finally broke down and bought it off the Bay of Evil...  I am not disappointed!!  This polish is wonderful- the application, the coverage, the color...  basically I love it.

Everyone knows that green is my favorite color, and a green holo makes it damn near my favorite polish!    This one will be worn quite a bit.  Now I need to buy more Nubars, if they all are as great as this, I will be a fan.

OPI My Private Jet- the "dud"

The Princess picked out a few polishes for my birthday...  Apparently all by herself!  One of them was one of the "dud" versions of MPJ.  I have the brown holo version, but I wanted to try this one out.  Turns out, it is kind of pretty!

I know there are a few "duds", but The Princess managed to pick a good one!

Yes I am a pirate....

200 years too late.
the cannons don't thunder,
there's nothing to plunder
I'm an over 40 victim of fate.
Arriving too late,
arriving too late.

(2 points if you can name that tune, LOL!)

Sorry it has been so long since I posted.  I had no internet for a week, then my hard drive died, and we had a dog emergency.  It has been a long 2 weeks.

Mr. Ski and the kids got me the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean mini set, and I decided to give Skull and Glossbones a try first.  I lovethis one, it is a weird greyish greenish color. 

Pretty!  I think I want to go back and get the full size.
