OPI Swatches - Pirates of the Caribbean, Silver Shatter, Simmer & Shimmer

Hello Lovelies,

Here are swatches of the newest OPI polishes that I added to my collection. I went to Ulta last week-end, trying to find a reason to use my coupons, lol. I ended up spending more than I intended to. At least the coupons helped, and I saved $15.00.

The Pirates of the Caribbean collection recently arrived in store. Obviously, as you can tell, these polishes were inspired by upcoming movie, which is to be released on May 20th. Since I have a pretty large nail polish collection. I decided it would be best just to get the mini set.

  • Skulls & Glossbones -- light grey, cream finish
  • Planks a Lot -- purple that leans more on blue with grey undertone, cream finish
  • Sparrow Me the Drama -- cool-toned pink, cream finish
  • Stranger Tides -- light khaki green, cream finish
The overall application of these polishes were decent. The formula isn't too sheer or thick. There wasn't much streaking either. You'll need 2 to 3 coats for an opaque, even application.

OPI is coming out with more Shatter colors. I picked up Silver Shatter because I didn't have one. They also had a white Shatter but I didn't buy since I already have one from the China Glaze Crackle collection.
After playing with it a few times. I find that Silver Shatter doesn't crack as nicely as I would like it to.

Simmer and Shimmer was part of the Burlesque Collection. For some reason, I didn't get this one when the collection came out but I found it at a nail supply store and decided to get it. This polish is packed with sparkling blue, pink, and gold glitters. I applied 3 coats on the swatches.
