Okay, so I randomly decided on a whim to count all my OPIs. I attempted to photograph the entire thing, then I set about identifying each polish. I'm just going to post the pics, and then all the labels below it. It's a lot to sort through, but at least if you see a polish and wonder what it is you'll be able to find out. Or you could just compare it to your own OPI collection. Or... whatever, fine, you know what?! I really don't know what the point of me doing this was. But the point is, I did it, and now I'm going to post it just so I feel like I didn't waste two hours of my life :p
OPIs are not my favorite brand of nail polish - probably my second or third or fourth, realistically - but I do own a lot of them because they are so easy to find, and for a while there I really had a hook-up and I was able to buy a lot of the core colours for a dollar or two each :) So my collection kind of grew. And I mean, I do love my OPI. They are good polishes, for the most part. Certain ones definitely inspire a special kind of lust in me that few other brands can. And they have created some of the coolest colours of all time. So even though the company itself is ridiculous and stupid and can go pee up a rope, I do love their polish. As you will be able to see.
So... are you ready for this?
Okay.... I'm warning you. This is ridiculous. Downright laughable. I own 181 OPIs! including minis. So....you wanna see? You really wanna see my ENTIRE OPI collection? Well.... okay.... you asked! :p
This is the main OPI drawer of my Melmer... so far I have one drawer dedicated to OPIs, and the rest just on random stands around my room. I'm going to have to dedicate another drawer to them soon - in the new Melmer I plan to buy soon, most likely. You're probably gonna have to click on the picture to see all the numbers, but maybe not.
Also, please excuse the mess that is my room. I'm reorganizing my closet - it doesn't always look like this, I swear! :p
This is random stand #1, where they're playing nicely with Zoyas, Lippmans, Illas and Chanels:
A stand hanging on the wall by my bed:
The second stand, on my dresser, completely full:
And the third stand, with my DS and Alice polishes, playing with Anna Sui and miscellaneous others:
Okay, this post was ridiculous. I don't even really know why I just put it up. Guilt, likely.
*EDIT - I just realized two things. 1.) Even though I said #128 was a China Glaze, not an OPI, I still included it in the count. Derpderp. And 2.) I missed an OPI, cuz it was hiding in one of my other purses. And it's one of my favorite colours - Significant Other Color! So, minus the ChG and including that, the final number is still the same... wow, that was entirely pointless, wasn't it....
So I got my giant swap in, and my TD order, and I haven't really gotten much else that's major in the past little while... I got Essie Sew Psyched and MAC Bad Fairy today - yay! :) And I plan on getting each and every one of those damn Burlesques when they come out.... which should be any day now. I have them all on hold at my local salon - they're getting them in any day now and they're calling me when they do :) And now there's all this NARS madness going on.... gah! I think I'll hate myself if I have the opportunity to get Zulu and Mash and don't.... oh, my poor poor wallet :p
Anyway, some day soon I'll post photos of the giant epic swap haul.... plus I have all the Orly Cosmix swatched, which I might as well post. And all my NOTDs that I've been backlogging, as usual :-/ Oh well. And coming up real soon will be the Burlesques :) I'm sure I'll do a trumpeting post on them full of squees the day I get them :)
Okay, it's kind of late, and my friends are all sitting around me talking, and it's kind of distracting, so... good night!
Oh yeah, one last thing - RIP Greg Giraldo. You guys ever seen the Comedy Central roasts? That guy was one funny mofo. I can't believe he's gone. The roasts are all going to suck now :(
