OPI - Steady As She Rose

Hello everyone,

Hope you've had a great Saturday! Me, I went shopping for sandals, because it's sales time here in France! And I've got myself 2 really cute pairs of sandals (one high healed, the other one flat).

Anyways, today I'm gonna show you the first polish I've got from the OPI Pirates Of the Caribbean collection: Steady As She Rose.
What a nice shade! I really love it! This is one of the reasons I've bought this collection! For the moment I'm really satisfied. It applies really well, and it's opaque in 2 coats. I think the drying time is very good, unexpectedly good. But I'm really crazy about the colour: is light pink, with a touch of violet, which makes it lilac-ish in a way, but there's also a bit of gray, so it's not very bright. Adorable and very wearable at the office.

Here are the pictures! I'm wearing 2 coats of OPI Steady As She Rose, no top coat:

And finally I've decided to add the face of a little (Caribbean :D) pirate on my ring! I've used Peggy Sage black pencil for the little head:

I'll try to make him smile the next time ;)

As I promised to Liz, I'll publish 3 pics of Titi, my parotlet  (2.5 years old, I have him since he was 6 week old...):

Playing with my bracelets

In his cage with his "ex", Orchidée (she flew away... that was a tragedy...)

LOVE LOVE LOVE : D <3 <3 <3

All rightie...I'm gonna go to sleep now...

See ya soon!
Big hugs!!!


  1. This is such a pretty color on you! Titi is very cute! :)

  2. This color is gorgeous on you! I can't wait to get mine. It should be coming in the mail soon. :) And that pirate face is adorable. I think you're the first one to actually do something pirate themed with a polish from this collection. ^^

    And Titi looks so cute playing with your bracelets and he's a lovely color. Actually, his lighter grey-green feathers look similar to OPI Stranger Tides... ;)

  3. Oh, I love this color!!!! I have it too! I love your little pirate on your ring finger! SUPER cute!

  4. Wow I should have bought this color when I bought Planks A Lot . This is just as gorgeous as Planks A Lot .

  5. Gorgeous color on you! And the little pirate is very cute. Have you thought about getting another mate for Titi? The same thing happened to me and I got another young bird to be a friend for my other bird. It didn't take long for them to be friends and I think my original bird is much happier now.

  6. Love the Pirate face :D That's so cute!! Titi looks gorgeous :)

  7. Awww, how adorable birdy! :) And this manicure is so super cute with that pirate :D

  8. @Liz: Thank you Liz! ;) Oh, I'm sure you're gonna love it and you're gonna do something fabulous with it. I thought about doing a pirate face on one nail, every time I'll show a polish from this collection (I've got them all! ;))
    And maybe I'll pose with Titi for Stranger Tides then ;D LOL

    @imfeelingnail-venturous: Thank you! You're so sweet! ;)

    @Toyomi: It's great colour indeed! But it's not too late to get this one too ;)

    @Millie: Yes, I've tried. I've got another female parotlet, but they couldn't stay in the same cage. I tried, but she did a depression and started to pluck Titi's head feathers... I had to put them in two different cages. Maybe another budgerigar would do it?

    @ Claire: Thank you, Claire!

    @Biba: Thank you so much, sweetie! ;) Hugs!

  9. Lovely colour and your grumpy pirate is adorable hehe! And Titi, so cute <<<<3

  10. Very pretty color! & Titi is GORGEOUS!

  11. @Cel: Thank you, Cel! ;)

    @Veronica: Thank you so much, Veronica!

  12. Very pretty! I know how tragic it is when you bird flys away. My parakeet flew sraight out the door and over the roof of target:(

  13. Oh, Hannah, I know, I cried all day after Orchidée flew away.. and it was exactly the same.. she flew over the roof and out of the sight... such sadness...:(
