If there’s one thing guaranteed to put a huge smile on my face it involves Johnny Depp being dressed as a pirate and asking why the rum is all gone. Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the best movie franchises to come out of Hollywood in a long time and I have the talking Jack Sparrow doll to prove it… yep, it talks to you! Just to prove how much of a geek I am, I present to you Captain Jack in all his glory – including his latest swag of a bottle of OPI polish. The nail varnish giants are releasing another collaboration, this time to celebrate the fourth installment of the pirate movie ‘On Stranger Tides’.
There are six shades in the collection which contains this murky green ‘Stranger Tides’ that is unlike any polish I have ever seen before. It’s literally like a murky green-grey shade that sounds utterly disgusting but actually looks quite effective once applied – I got three complements in one day when I wore it. The polish is quite runny so you need three coats, but when it dries you get a really delicate colour that you can’t quite put your finger on.
The other shades in the collection include ‘Skull and Glossbones’ which is a beautiful grey-brown colour and some cute pastel shades including the lilac ‘Walk the Plank’ and minty green ‘Mermaids Tears’. I was surprised to see so many pastel shades in an OPI collection, especially when it’s representing the world of swashbuckling pirates, but I can’t wait to wear these all Spring. Oooh-arrrrr.
