Skull & Glossbones. Light grey/taupe. This one was thicker than I expected with a very smooth application. Two thick coats are all that was needed.
Stranger Tides. Light, dusty army-green that was popular this past season. This one was thinner than the others but also had a smooth application. I used 3 coats. A surprise favorite.
Steady As She Rose. Light dusty purple. This one was a little goopy and needed 3 coats.
Sparrow Me The Drama. Dusty pink/rose cream. I used 3 thin coats. Another favorite.
Planks A Lot. Muted purple, almost a jelly. Two coats. I didn't notice it was see through until I went outdoors, sorry about that. I wonder how similar this is to Butter London's Scoundrel. I almost ordered it this weekend, but now I'm glad I didn't. My favorite from the collection!
Mermaid Tears. Beautiful dusty green, less lime than Damone Roberts. A unique shade to my stash. Three coats.
Silver Shatter. I heard this one applied differently from Black Shatter, but I applied it the same way - one thick coat. Just like Black Shatter, you get more defined cracks over a top coat. My polish of choice was Poshe. Silver Shatter is not as transparent as I thought it would be, but it's still beautiful. The color reminds me of LA Colors Live but it's slightly darker.
Although I haven't seen the movie, I can see where OPI got their inspiration. The first half of the collection reminds me of "Pirates" with the dusty greys & greens. But I'm glad they decided to mix things up a bit and throw in a few pastels. I guess that's where the "Caribbean" part of the collection comes from.
Overall the polishes applied quite well. They were thicker than I expected, although a couple of them still needed 3 coats. They collection is all creams, so there could be some possible dupes out there. My favorites are Sparrow Me the Drama, Mermaid Tears, Stranger Tides & Planks a Lot.
Silver Shatter is gorgeous in person and applied similarly to Black Shatter, although the formula is thinner. It's very stunning in person if you like foils.
Thanks for looking. I have to get back to studying for my final tomorrow. Wish me luck!!! Oh and I probably won't post anything until Thursday or Friday when my finals end, unless I get a surprise burst of energy. Have a great week!
