And I was right. I really like this murky, dusty, rose-y lavender. Maybe there's a drop of black in Steady As She Rose that gives it that gray cast, but whatever it is...it's really working for me. I did two coats here, except on my pointer finger where I did three. I wanted to see if the depth of the color would change and it really didn't, so I didn't add a coat to the other nails. I didn't use top coat either. I was going super low maintenance yesterday. Clueless was on Oxygen so I had no problem just sitting there quietly and letting my nails dry on their own (that's Ren & Stimpy. They're WAY existential). I like this polish so much that it's on my toes now too! That, my friends, is love.
The OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection has delivered two knockouts for me. I'm confident enough to say that Stranger Tides will be my favorite polish of the summer, hands-down; and there's just something about the murky quality of what could be a girly pink that makes me swoon for Steady As She Rose. Good job, OPI. Good. Job.
I had two days off in a row (Sunday and Monday) so I'm hoping my batteries have recharged a little bit. On Sunday I spent most of the day alone, until my parents came back from their other house. Then we had a Fathers Day dinner which my dad grilled (oops) and I hung out with my grandma. Monday was lazy and wonderful. I spent the morning with my boyfriend, and then my friend and I made dinner together. Today starts another work week, but on Saturday the Cleveland Museum of Art is having its third annual Solstice Party (at which I will be volunteering). If you're from the Cleveland area you should come check it out. It'll be a fun time, I promise!
Okay, that's it for today. Opinions on Steady As She Rose?
