I have to be honest with you- when I heard OPI was creating a collection based on the new Pirates film, I was really excited!! Pirates of the Caribbean was a huge part of my high school life, I remember I saw the first one NINE times in theaters the summer before Sophomore year and I was just obsessed with all three of them. I was definitely weary when I first heard that they were making a FORTH movie- it just seemed like a bad idea. BUT, then I saw the trailer, and the movie actually looks really promising!
That being said, this collection is NOT what I expected at all. When I thought Pirates & Polish, I pictured dark navys, greens, maybe a bright turquoise and yellow.. not pastels! I just can’t figure out where the inspiration for these colors was taken with the theme that it’s revolving around.
That being said, the colors are definitely pretty- soft creamy pastels that apply nice and evenly within two coats. I also LOVE the silver shatter, but with that one it is important to remember to apply it on TOTALLY dry polish, and wait until the shatter is completely dry before applying top coat.
These will be available May 2011 from OPI.
