242- OPI Steady As She Rose and Navy Shatter

 Monday, May 16, 2011

Its OPI Week! What better way to kick off this week of swatches with a new shade from OPI's Pirates of the Carribean Collection?

Steady as She Rose is a lavender that is on the grey side. I call this a modern neutral! Its a spring color that could work in any season and on any skin tone. It has a hint of pink in the creme.
Application was great! The OPI extra wide brush made this super simple to coat my nails in two coats. This is a very soft lavender and I like it but would most likely wear it underneath other lacquers.

So What did I decide to pair this with? A shatter of course!

I couldnt decide which shatter to choose with this lavender creme but Im very happy with my decision to use Navy Shatter.

I love the navy shatter with it. For those who dont have shatter, the thinner the coat the more cracks. The problem with doing thin coats is that on some nails the navy wasnt opaque enough and came out a royal color. I didnt mind.
I really like this combination of Steady As She Rose and Navy shatter. I will wear this combo again!
