OPI Pirates Of The Caribbean Collection

Think Pirates Of The Caribbean, Captain Jack Sparrow and all those undead creatures in the movie, I would have expected a deeper, more mysterious colour scheme for any collections that uses its name. Pirates Of The Caribbean.. dark taupe, rosewood, rich black, charcoal, cadet, rose ebony, bistre and arsenic are the colours I can think off which relates but obviously OPI saw the brighter side of the story.

This Spring, OPI released a series of nail lacquer named Pirates Of The Caribbean. This collection consists of 6 coloured nail polishes namely Skull & Glossbones, Steady As She Rose, Sparrow Me The Drama, Planks A Lot, Stranger Tides, Mermaid’s Tears and a bottle of Silver Shutter.

I skipped both the pinks and picked up the rest.

 Swatches below taken indoor with flash for your reference. All without base nor top coat. 2 coats of nail polish per shade.

 Silver Shutter on Planks A Lot.

Silver Shutter on Mermaid’s Tears.

The consistency of Silver Shutter is slightly more watery than the Black Shutter and it dries with a satin finish whereas the Black Shutter dries matte. To me, the Silver Shutter is more user-friendly and much easier to work with as it doesn’t dry almost immediately. It takes a little longer to dry as compared to the Black Shutter.

Did you pick up anything from this collection?

Thank you for reading.

  2. Both your shatter applications turned out wonderful! And I liked how you justified the colour range of this collection – OPI saw the brighter side of the story :P
