Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection - What I've Bought

**all items purchased by me

Anyone else super easy to distract?  I know I am.  I sat down an hour ago to work on my post and instead started cleaning out my SkyDrive/OneDrive to make room for new pictures that I took this evening.  Oops.  At least I did decide earlier on today what I wanted to post, which is all the polishes that I've picked up from Nicole by OPI's Carrie Underwood collection.  I knew when I first saw the promos that I for sure wanted the 2  in-your-face glitters; beyond that I wasn't sure if I would pick up any others.  I bought the first one way back in January and the other 2 in February.  One of these for sure has already been shared in a haul post, but I'm not sure about the other 2.  Just a warning - my camera had a hard time with the sparkle/holo-ness of the glitters, especially since both the Mister and I were changing settings on it while traveling last week.

Here's what's actually on my nails right now.  I started with a coat of Seche Recondition then Orly Bonder.  Ring fingers and thumbs have 1 coat of Sinful Colors Leap Flog with a second coat of Athens (super distracted so I grabbed the wrong bottle when I went in for the 2nd coat) while the rest are 2 coats of Sweet Daisy.  I topped everything off (after the glitters) with a nice layer of NYC Grand Central Station quick dry top coat.
I have 1 coat (plus fishing for flowers) of Party Bus on my ring fingers and 1 coat of Lips are Dripping Honey on my middle and index fingers.  Pinkies and thumbs are sparkle-less - being different.

~all are 2 coats on the wheel, but Party Bus has a little fishing for flowers as well

I'm not sure if I'm going to get any more from the collection at this point or not.  A lot of the shades are basics which I probably have dupes of in my stash.  I think that Sinful Colors Athens is pretty close to Goodbye Shoes so even though I do like that color, there's no real point in purchasing it in the future.  I'd even go so far as to say it's "My Version of."  I think that Carrie'd Away might be unique compared to what's in my stash so that one has a higher likelihood of coming home with me than the other creme shades.  Same thing for Sing You Like a Bee (white with golden shimmer).

Did you get any from the Carrie Underwood collection?  Do any look like dupes to colors from other brands?
