To celebrate the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie coming out in a few days, OPI has released a new collection of nail polishes. This set came with 6 new polishes plus a Silver Shatter. You won't see the Silver Shatter in my haul here, I am not really a fan of the Shatter thing, it's not for everyone. But I do like pastel hues and so this collection really intrigued me. I instantly fell in love with the seafoam green colour, Mermaid's Tears and picked up a couple more too.
The ones that I picked up were Planks A lot, Stranger Tides, Steady As She Rose and Mermaid's Tears. I actually ordered Skull and Glossbones, but was sent Stranger Tides instead. I thought I would hate Stranger Tides, but I actually don't mind it now seeing it in person. If you are wondering, I get the majority of my nail polishes through NailEtc on Amazon.com. Their prices are pretty good, much cheaper (even with shipping to Canada) then what I would pay at the nail salon.
Planks A Lot is the more vibrant out of the 4 that I picked up, it's a purple, slightly greyed out giving it that slight dusty look, but still a pastel. Although all of the polishes in this collection are cremes, I found this one to be much more watery than the rest.
Stranger Tides is a murky grey khaki green. This one is definitely weird. I don't see myself wearing this often, but I have started to like it more than I thought I would, and it's unique.
Mermaid's Tears is my favourite from this collection. It's a seafoam green. Looking at it in the bottle it's very different than say, a tiffany blue colour, this has much more green in it. I love this because it's a bright colour, but still a pastel tone. This one is similar to Misa's Dirty Sexy Money.
Steady As She Rose is a very pale greyed out pink. This one takes three coats to look opaque and avoid that streaky look that really pale polishes can have.
Would I recommend this product? I really like the polishes in this collection, they have a pale unique quality to them. And if you are into the shatter thing, definitely get the silver one that comes in this collection.
