Pirate Triangles Nail Art

Hey guys!

Okay, so there aren't any actual pirates in this mani, but I did use several polishes from OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean Collection from last year - hence the title. I still think that this is one of the better collections that OPI has released in a while and I wanted to revisit some of the colours.

For this design, I started with a base of white (although now I sort of wish that I had used OPI Skull & Glossbones instead) and then using a striping brush, I drew some simple triangles using OPI Mermaid's Tears, Planks A Lot and Sparrow Me The Drama.

I think the end result is ok, but it might be missing a little something. Maybe I should mattify the whole look? What do you guys think?


Products used:
CND Stickey Base Coat
China Glaze - White on White
OPI - Mermaid's Tears
OPI - Planks A Lot
OPI - Sparrow Me The Drama
Seche Vite Top Coat


  1. I like it, and agree that it might like awesome mattified. Or adding a glitter topper like Essence Space Queen as an accent and mattify the other nails?

  2. This looks so nice, and I agree it would look really good matte!

  3. This looks fantastic! Really like it :)

  4. It has a sort of harlequin look! Very nice!

  5. Fantastic, fantastic and FANTASTIC! Love this colors together!

  6. very 80s, I love it!

  7. These are super cute! And I love your use of the OPI Pirates collection.

  8. Your design is great! I wish I had bought the whole collection instead of minis...

  9. I really like it! The Pirates collection has always been one of my recent faves also; the colors are just so pretty and dusty looking. And I am really into matte polishes these days so I definitely think matte would look really cool.

  10. I really like it. You're right though, it might look even more awesome mattified. Also I like the idea of using a more grey base color.

  11. So cute! I love the color combo! : )
