Today is the release of the new Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides movie and to get in the spirit, I thought we’d plunder some pirate beauty!
To celebrate the new film, OPI launches its Spring 2011 BRIGHTS Collection, which features a groundbreaking new color addition in the Shatter coat formula– Silver. Inspired by graffiti art, this shade leaves behind a crackled, two-texture silver finish when painted over any dry OPI hue.
“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, these colors are evocative of a warm, tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection includes:
Skull & Glossbones – Best light gray ever, no bones about it.
Mermaid’s Tears – Few have seen this magical green.
Steady as She Rose – This gorgeous pink is your final destination.
Planks a Lot – Dive into style with this lustworthy purple!
Sparrow Me the Drama – This cool, collected pink means business!
Stranger Tides – Explore this uncharted sea of sage.
Silver Shatter – A shimmering sea of silver with a two-texture finish.
This is a nice collection for spring and summer; the colors are pretty–not piratey! My favorite shades in the collection are Skull & Glossbones, a very light cool gray and Planks a Lot, a medium purple shade. I love the Silver Shatter; in my use, I tried it over the lighter shades, but this color looks best over dark shades of nail polish. Unfortunately my cameras decided to die, so I don’t have pictures to show you, but I’ll update this post with snaps of my Plans a Lot mani, as well as the Silver Shatter texture.
The limited-edition Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection will be available beginning May 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA for $8.50 suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
