OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection Part 2: Swatches, Photos, Review
OPI has come out with six new colors inspired by the upcoming film Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides, along with a silver shatter polish. Here is the second half of the collection, the cool toned blues and greens!
Skull & Glossbones, Stranger Tides, Mermaids Tears
Skull & Glossbones, 2 Coats

I definitely feel that these colors are more appropriate for a Pirate theme than the pink/purple pastels, with the murky gray and eerie muted greens. I have to say as well, I love the names of these! OPI always makes me laugh when they do play-on-words for the polish names :) Like the first half of this collection, these all apply really nicely opaque after 2 coats and have a nice, cream finish.
As I mentioned in the previous post, make sure you apply the Silver Shatter on top of totally dry polish, and then wait until the shatter itself is completely dry before applying top coat. You can see in Skull & Glossbones and Mermaids Tears that I was rushing a bit, and the shatter starts to bunch up and not look so smooth.
These will be available May 2011 from OPI.
