OPI Pirates of the Carribbean on Stranger Tides Collection Swatches & Review

In honor of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides debuting today, I have the OPI Pirates of the Carribbean on Stranger Tides Collection to share with you guys tonight. And I have to be honest, I have never watched any of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but fear not because I have all three movies so I can catch up and then watch the fourth movie soon :)

So this collection consists of 6 pastel like cremes and a silver shatter. Let me first say the silver shatter is amazing. In my pictures it might look a little dull because my camera cannot really capture the shimmer in the silver and the contrast between the pastels. First set of photos are the six pastel shades with no top coat. And the second set of pictures are with silver shatter over them.

Planks A Lot is a medium lavender creme. 3 coats

Sparrow Me the Drama is a rosey pink creme. 3 coats

Steady As She Rose is a greyed out super light pink creme. 3 coats. Such a unique color!

Skulls & Glossbones is a light grey creme. 3 coats. I do not know why my camera made it appear green-ish. I went through every photo I took of this swatch and it all appeared green-ish. In person, this is really a light grey creme that is a bit close to beige.

Stranger Tides is a greyish green creme. 3 coats. Now this one is correct. It is indeed a green grey, or grey green. This is my favorite one!

Mermaid Tears is a turquoise close to mint green creme. 3 coats. It's not bright enough to be a mint green, but I still think its pretty sexy xD

And here are them with silver shatter over them!

Silver Shatter over Planks A Lot

Silver Shatter over Sparrow Me the Drama

Silver Shatter over Stead As She Rose

Silver Shatter over Skull & Glossbones

Silver Shatter over Stranger Tides

Silver Shatter over Mermaid Tears

Now the formula for these were a excellent. I didn't have any problems with application whatsoever. They weren't fully opaque therefore they all required 3 coats to reach bottle color. I must say I am really in love with the Silver Shatter. It is by far my favorite shatter ever!

What did you guys think of this collection? I really loved it because I love pastels and the silver shatter just made it even more amazing!

Well that's all I have for tonight!

P.S- It's Friday, Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! Oh Rebecca Black, your song is Friday's Anthem..

(These were sent to me for review)


  1. Skulls & Glossbones is my favorite and I LOVE Silver Shatter!

  2. Your swatches look really good! I saw the movie tonight - very pleasantly surprised - I really liked it!

  3. Hi!
    How do you say "Steady as she rose" and CG "Light as air" would compare?are they dupes, or similar?
    And what about "Mermaid tears" and Essie's Turquoise & caicos, do you think they're close enough?
    I'd really appreciate your opinion!!!

  4. When OPI released this collection I didn't like it much but after seeing the film, I love the collection and don't like the film that much -__-

  5. silver shatter looks freaking amazing over skulls & glossbones and even more perfect with plants a lot. :)
