i purchased the mini set of these polishes from Ulta. Stranger tides is my favorite of the colors simply because it is nothing like any other color I have in my collection. In the bottle it looks like a muddy creek but on you nails it's a pretty light olivey green color. The colors are very opaque and only need ab two coats for true color payoff. Overall, I thought this was a creative little collection and because I love Pirates of the Caribbean and nail polish so much I had to at least try it out! Haha
I purchased both Mermaid's Tears and Silver Shatter on the release day and I have to say that both of them together are gorgeous!!!
Sparrow Me The Drama
This is the cutest pink i own. I love love love the color in contrast with other polishes i pair it with on my nails. Since im not a fan of pink this is really cool and i think everyone should get at least one color from this collection.
I was really excited for this collection! I immediately fell in love with OPI's Mermaids Tears and the silver shatter. I regret not picking up skull and glossbones because it looks so beautiful. Mermaid's tears is a gorgeous gray-green polish that glides on your fingernails. Great color which lasts for a significant amount of time
i have only tried the ssilver shatter and it is really good, i find that if you apply a thin coat it cracks loads better, but my friends doesnt crack as well, i dont no if this is just hers or there are others like it! but the effect is really cool. but i think it is a bit pricey!!
I think the colors complement the whole "pirates" and "Caribbean" theme well I have this in mermaid's tears and skull and glossbones. I got mermaid's tears because I've been looking for a seafoamy green color and I liked the name (lol) this is as close as I've gotten. Skull and glossbones is just a nice shade of gray, like a "candy pastel" neutral grey that goes grrrreat under some black shatter polish! Try it!
Lovely colors, but where did the glitters go?
I picked up a few of the polishes from this collection: Mermaid Tears, Skull & Glossbones, Planks a lot and Sparrow me the Drama. All of them are nice colors, but when I think of the movie..... I don't see why OPI didn't add some type of glitters or even shimmers??? yes the silver shatter was promoted with the collection, but I was really hopping for more glitz with the collection. So to compensate my lack of glitter, I would use some of my other glitter polishes over them to make them more "piratey" for me :)
Love Mermaid's Tears
I have the color "Mermaid's Tears" and it's an absolutely gorgeous color. It's extremely unique and goes on completely opaque after two coats. Like all OPI polishes, it also lasts at least a week before seriously chipping. Beautiful.
I have Skull & Bones, Mermaid Tears, and the silver shatter. They are gorgeous I have gotten so many compliments! I swapped out my Alpine Snow for Skull & Bones last time I did french and it looked good, it added a little something subtle but charming to my tips.
I own Mermaid's Tears from this collection and love it. It was such a beautiful color and one of the most unique. I find that OPI generally has a lot of pinks and purples, so I gravitated away from the colors that I felt could be duped and went for Mermaid's Tears. With two coats it was perfectly opaque and my manicure was perfect for about a week. Love!
