opi's pirates of the caribbean

45 minutes before I leave for the airport and my car and the boyfriend's car are parked at his mom's house due to street sweeping, iyah texts me "opi pirates is here!" and the addict in me had to make moves..I called to have hiep hold a set for me, and two sets for xtina, but I couldn't wait, so the boyfriend took out the bike! (hate the carless feeling! its like being handicapped!) thanks, bubs, you're the best! I couldn't wait 5 days the anticipation was going to kill me! its not even the colors its just my wierd obsession of having to own polishes..the colors are dupable to a some of the past collection and the permanent collection, but it doesn't take away from how gorgeous they are as a whole! and silver shatter!!! definitely a twist on pirates, since you'd expect dark, starking shades, but these are so cute!





6 spring time colors and silver shatter





the star of the collection..now to wait for serena william's other collections (gorgeous shades) & the opi colored shatters collection, I'm kind of getting over shatters on my nails, but I just want a bottle of each just for keeper's sake..I seriously get an adrenaline rush, it's THAT sick.

ok, off to the airport now! my OCD can be at peace lol
