Sneak Peek - OPI Pirates of the Caribbean

by 9:36 AM 7 comments

Happy Monday everyone! Ok, I have a new OPI collection to show you. I love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies like no ones business. I mean there's Johnny Depp and then there is Johnny Depp in pirate getup complete with eyeliner. I know which one I prefer.

So by default, I loved this collection before I even saw it. Have a look and let me know what you think.

OPI & Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Get your sword and parrot ready for some swashbuckling style with the creation of OPI’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides inspired nail lacquers featuring six limited edition cool pastel lacquer shades and the new Silver Shatter top coat.
Whilst The Pirates of the Caribbean shades will be the ‘must have’ colours for spring, the real treasure trove is the new crackling shimmery two-texture silver finish know as Silver Shatter top coat.

OPI will be creating some waves with their new earth shattering Silver Shatter top coat. Following on from the success of OPI’s Black Shatter top coat, the new Silver Shatter was inspired by graffiti artist and is destined to set a new trend in nail art application.

Disney’s highly-anticipated fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is directed by Rob Marshall and features an all-star cast, including Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz. OPI’s The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides lacquers were inspired by a world filled with mythical mermaids, gleaming treasure, and high-seas adventure, with shades ranging from sage and lavender to khaki gray and pastel pink, evocative colours within a tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence.

Jump on-board the Black Pearl to find your own treasure with the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides shades;

 Explore this uncharted shade of oyster with a green hue, Stranger Tides. Loose yourself in the adventure with Sparrow Me the Drama, a cool shade of pink that means business.

Show off your pirating spirit in Skull & Glossbones, a desirable nude with a hint of pale khaki grey. Dive into style with this lust-worthy lavender purple shade, Planks A Lot.

Hoist the sails and Steady as She Rose, a milky pale pink, designed to help you reach your final destination. Indulge in a magical shade of sea foam pale pastel green, Mermaid’s Tears.

Top off your favourite shade with a shimmery sea of silver, Silver Shatter top coat, a two texture cracked finish.
I have to admit, pastels are the last things I think of when I think pirates. I think of shades like blood red and bounty gold and peg leg brown and filthy mouthed parrot green. I also have to say, that I would never, ever associate a pink polish with Jack Sparrow.
What are your thoughts on the collection? I'll be interested to see the Silver Shatter T/C, Mermaids Tears, Skull & Glossbones and On Stranger Tides.
I'll be back soon with some Nubar new releases.
Be awesome to each other.
