Ahoy Mateys! You've all heard it's coming, The Pirates of the Caribbean collection. This May you'll be able to get your hands on Skull & Glossbones, Mermaid's Tears, Planks a Lot, Sparrow Me the Drama, Steady as She Rose, and Stranger Tides. Available May 1, 2011.
I absolutely love POTC and love these!!! My favourite colour is 'skull and gloss bones', I bought four mini's and a large 'Mermaid Tears' and think they are all so sweet that I am going to purchase full size of all of them. gorgeous pastel finish, totally go with the POTC theme esp. that of the mermaids and the green swamps throughout the movie. The mini sizes are perfect for my suitcase as I go on holiday next weekend, buy them - you won't be sad you did!!
I made my way to Ulta and decided to purchase the mini set which includes four of the six creamy pastel polishes in the collection. Missing from the set are Steady as She Rose, a pale pink, and Mermaid's Tears, a sea foam green. Many people have said that this collection has nothing to do with pirates. I understand that most people wouldn't think of these creamy pastel muddy colors when thinking of pirates, however, I do think these colors coordinate with the colors and tones used in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Overall I like these colors and may purchase a full size bottle of Skull & Glossbones, Stranger Tides, and may pick up Mermaid's Tears. I'll be skipping on the others, not because I don't like them, but because I have other polishes that may not be exact dupes, but are close enough.

Im a sucker for anything pirates related so when this came out I had to have them all. They are all great matte colors, I like that they are pretty much good for any time of the year too. The formula also delivers as OPI is known for they go on smooth only need two coats or less and dry in a relatively timely manner.
I brought the minis! Love them all, such unique colours and such a great film! My favourite OPI collection so far. The colours are so glossy and classy. And of course last ages! I apply three thin coats for a great colour. My favourite colour is Sparrow Me The Drama which is in the picture. It's simply gorgeous.
I dont have any green nail polish because alot of greens are too much for me but when I saw stranger tides I had to grab it! its such a pretty soft neutral green that goes with practically everything I wear. long lasting and smooth! love love this color :D
I love pastels and they are out and about full force this season. I have used all these colors so many times on clients and myself and they look amazing everytime my favorite color is mermaid tears, its such a pretty mint green.
Today I'm wearing the new Mermaid's Tears with the Silver Shatter & it looks great, I've gotten several compliments since I put it on 2 days ago. The beautiful green will look great on toes this summer with a tan :) I love the Steady as She Rose, too. Either with or without Silver Shatter, great colors & I only use OPI or Essie polishes.
I have been stalking the stores to see when this gorge collection comes out! Just went out a bought: mermaid tears (light teal green), Planks A Lot (jelly light purple) , and Skull & Glossbones (a light gray)! So excited to try them all and wear them to the beach! Perfect for lighter skin tones before we get so tan!
i just purchased a few of the colors the other day and im waiting for the silver shatter and the mermaid's tears. this is by far one of my fave collection that OPI has released this year. the colors are so fun and pretty for spring/summer. maybe its just me, but pastel colors are everywhere! and im absolutely obsessed. i think the names of the colors won my heart as well. Steady as she rose, Planks a lot, and skull & glossbones..? come on you have to love those names. overall this collection is super fun and i cant wait until i get my hands on the silver shatter. i will go bizerk!
Love this collection!! My favorite color in this collection is the mermaid tears! Especially with the silver shatter on top! This is a great summer collection color especially if u don't like the dark laquers these colors suit u just fine!
