Review & Swatches - OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection: Part 2

Hey guys!

Some of you might remember that last month I reviewed and swatched 4 of the 7 shades from the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. Well now I have the remaining 3 for you! I was sent the first 4 for consideration which is why I had those so early but I had to wait for these 3 to be released in stores to finish my review.

You can check out Part 1 here for the rest of the shades.

Steady As She Rose, On Stranger Tides, Sparrow Me the Drama

Steady As She Rose (dusty light lilac-y rose)
This is a very interesting shade that falls somewhere in between the realm of lilac and rose but it also has a dusty quality to it that makes it unlike anything I have in my collection. The formula was great and it was opaque in 2 coats.

Stranger Tides (dirty light olive green)
Another very interesting shade! It's actually an ugly colour in my opinion but that's what I love about it! You don't see shades like this produced very often and I'm really happy to be able to add this to my collection. Like the others, this applied very nicely and was opaque in 2 coats.

Sparrow Me the Drama (dusty medium pink)
This is probably the least unique shade within the collection but it's still a nice, well formulated pink. It does have a slight dusty quality to it which ties it to the other shades but it's not quite dusty enough to make it unique. Again, this was 2 coats.

Overall, this is definitely my favourite collection that OPI has released so far this year. The formula on all of the shade was excellent, they were all opaque in 2 coats, Silver Shatter works really well and gives a really nice effect, and there are some unique shades here that I don't have anything similar to in my collection.

The OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection is available now in professional salons and spas.

What do you guys think? Did you pick up any of these shades? Which ones are your favourites?

  1. I have to admit I love the lovely muted colours in this collection. The pinks and blues are bright but not at the same time.
