OPI Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Swatches
Okay, most of y’all have seen swatches of these floating around on other blogs. It’s only a matter of time I’ll have it up on mine, so here it is…..swatches for OPI Pirates Of The Carribbean: On Stranger Tides Collection.
Let’s start with my favorite, Sparrow Me The Drama.
This pink creme shade is right up my alley! It’s a dusty pink that can be worn all year round. I wouldn’t mind sporting this during any season of the year really. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is my next favorite, Planks A Lot.
This dusty purple caught me by surprise. I’m usually not a fan of dusty cremes, but the ones in this collection definitely surprised me. I adore this purple creme shade. In fact, this is one of my top 3 purple creme shades of all time. Sorry for the silver glitter bits you see around my finger. It’s from the removal of the previous shade with Silver Shatter. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
Next we have probably the most popular shade in this collection, Mermaid’s Tears.
Another dusty creme shade in this collection! Can you see the trend here? This one’s the green creme in the collection. This type of shade seems to be popular this year. I have seen similar shades in other brands’ collections for both Spring and Summer. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
Here’s another one I like a lot, Steady As She Rose.
This one’s a very light rose shade. A little bit dusty as well. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
Here we have another crowd favorite, Skull & Glossbones.
I love this shade, another surprise in the bunch for me. It looks like a slightly dusty nude with a hint of gray. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
Last shade of the bunch is named after the movie, Stranger Tides.
I can see the appeal of this shade, but it’s just not a favorite of mine. It looks like a dusty grey-ish green creme shade to me. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.
The Silver Shatter dries a bit matte, but it packs a lot of shine still without top coat. I only applied top coat over Silver Shatter on one shade, Sparrow Me The Drama. You can see that it’s shinier, but not much of a difference really. One thing you really have to do is to let the underlying shade dry before applying the Silver Shatter. You can see in my Mermaid’s Tears with Silver Shatter swatch that the Silver Shatter layer pulled onto Mermaid’s Tears a bit, as I didn’t let it fully dry before application. I applied a thin coat of Silver Shatter on all the shades, as shown in the pictures. Formula for all 6 creme shades were lovely, a dream to work with. They went on smoothly and were almost as creamy and buttery as the cremes from OPI’s Hong Kong Collection I’ve used before.
These should be available in various retail stores such as ULTA and Trade Secret. So, which shade will you be getting?
