OPI - Meet Me on the Star Ferry (for Diana)

     OPI Meet Me on the Star Ferry is from their Spring 2010 Hong Kong Collection. The "Star Ferry Co Ltd" name was inspired by the poem above. I don't really want to explain my polish choice past that. I haven't shared this with the bf yet. I don't know if I will.
     All photos are two coats of Meet Me on the Star Ferry and one coat of Seche Vite. Any bubbles are the result of my sleep deprived application, not the fault of the polish. This polish looks different in every light, sometimes cooler or warmer. Frosty or crazy shimmery. Pink, purple, brown. I don't feel much like describing it in depth. Photos are all colour accurate, to an extent. (Let's say that they capture the spirit of the polish.) I'm just not that concerned this time. There are other, more perfect, swatches out there. These are being posted with love.


     I'm hoping that my next post will be more upbeat. I got word a few hours ago that my own mother is in the hospital. Keep us in your thoughts, as you all are in mine.


  1. I have this color too but have yet to wear it. It looks so pretty though :)

    1. You should totally wear it! It was pretty in the bottle, but didn't really call to me until now. I wish I hadn't waited so long to put it on. :)

    1. Thank you! I was surprised by how complex it is.

  3. That's terrible. My condolences.
    I understand what you mean about not being able to comfort. You sound like me, a problem solver. Finding logical solutions to situations. But all of that goes out the door when faced with supporting a loss. There is nothing you can do to ease that pain. Just know that being there is enough. Be strong and keep on keeping on.
    I think you picked the perfect colour. And I forgot how wonderful Tennyson can be.
    My thoughts are with you. <3

    1. Thank you so much for this comment. Your words are a huge reassurance for me. It helps to be able to share, and have someone understand where I'm coming from. I'm surrounded by emotional females, and you're the only one who has been able to give me any solace in this situation. Much love to you! <3

    2. I'm so glad :)
      My boyfriend's grandfather died last year and I realized how ill equipped I was for such situations. All I wanted to do was "there there" him on the shoulder and tell him to get on with it and keep moving. Instead I just didn't say anything and silently took control for awhile. They know we're not good at this stuff. All they need is good hugs and someone telling them to eat.
