bubbles in oil on dipstick?

yesterday my car was running fine, then last night i started overboosting to over 30psi to where my car was shaking back and forth, i checked all the vacuum lines and put one back on but my question is why are there tiny little air bubbles on my dipstick in the oil? i mean i dnt know if it even means anything but if you guys have any advice please give me some input... im tuned currently for 24psi on 93 oct.. have a fp white turbo, injen intake with upicp/licp, dp,tp, cossie 272s with cosworth head internals, carbon ti exhaust and running ams oil 10w30 also have a balance shaft eliminator kit on a stock shortblock

If theres too much oil in your engine, the oil can foam up and you'll see those bubbles. Thats one idea.

its happens when you check your oil right after you turn your car off, when you come back from the road.

very normal

ok well i just did another pull down the road, and i thought i fixed all the vacuum lines but it is still over boosting and the oil still has bubbles, but i dnt know where another vacuum line could be loose, its very weird when i floor it, the needle goes smooth through the rpm but the car shakes back and forth like a slipping clutch but when it starts shaking the needle still flows smooth through the rpms...im very confused

-Spark plugs
-bost cut, fuel cut ( which could be the issue because you are over boosting) go and find out why are you over boosting.
- bad gas tank

Check the EGR valve vaccum line, its hard to reach its under the throttle body. Its a very common place to have a boost leak. If you did indeed blow it off I recommend using a zip tie and some hairspray

Also sounds weird, but check your timing as well.

And of course a boost leak test.
