My Collection Part 4

Here is the last of my OPI. 
Pearl of Wisdom, Happy Anniversary, Up Front and Personal, Birthday Babe
I call these my "effects" because I use these to layer over other colors. 
Birthday Babe is used for stamping.

Summer Flutter
Flower to Flower, Flit A Bit, Wing-It!
Every year OPI releases 4 pinks.  Summer Flutter is my favorite "pink set" because it
included an orange and a very popular blue (Catch Me In Your Net).  CMIYN is hard to find and
I settled on getting WNW Teal of Fortune (close dupe)

Shrek Forever After
Rumples Wiggin, Funkey Donkey, Fiercely Fiona, Who the Shrek Are You?
I'm missing the 2 blues but I can do without them. 

2009 South Beach in Paint My Moji-toes Red and Conga-Line Coral
2010 Swiss in The Color to Watch and Ski Teal We Drop

OPI Brights in Bright Lights Big Color and Blue My Mind (franken)
The 3rd bottle is my "Absolutely Alice dupe" consisting of Milani Blue Flash
and OPI Spark De Triomphe

Burlesque Glitters
Simmer and Shimmer x2, Show it and Glow it, Bring on the Bling,
Extra va-vaganza, Sparkleicious x2
Burlesque is my favorite holiday collection to date.

Burlesque Foils
Ali's Big Break (slight jelly), Let Me Entertain You, Take the Stage,
The Show Must Go On (duochrome)

2011 Serena Williams releases
Grape Set Match, Servin Up Sparkle, Rally Pretty Pink

Night Brights in Give Me the Moon (gray with blue flash) and My Private Jet 2nd release
Miss Universe in It's My Year! and Swimsuit I Nailed It!

Lincoln Park after Dark Suede, La-Pazitively Hot Matte,
Meet Me on the Star Ferry

Amazing Spiderman in Into the Night and Just Spotted the Lizard

Okay, there you have it-my entire collection. It adds up to 189 bottles including mini, backups, and frankens.  To some it may be a lot and to others its hardly anything compared to their own collection.  I try to be selective and buy polish that is unique to what I already own.  There are a lot of untrieds that I'd like to get to and some favorites that I can wear over and over.  I've seen most of what's coming out for the rest of the year and it's not really anything that I "gotta have".  I'm on a low buy until January.  OPI is joining together with Mariah Carey in January.  I'm thinking glitter and lots of girly-ness.


  1. Nice variety here! Thanks for taking the time to document and share your whole stash--I love seeing what other people have. :)
