O.P.I Brights: Pirates of the Caribbean Collection Swatches

Hi lovelies,

  Just a quick second post today with my final thoughts on the whole collection and all the colors together. I hope you guys enjoyed my PIrate's mani series. These colors were a blast to play around with. Here they are all together.
On Stranger Tides

Steady as she Rose

Sparrow me the Drama

Skull and Glossbones

Mermaid's Tears

 Planks a Lot
  So many of you know my initial reaction to this collection was not the best one. I was sad the colors were not vampier and more "Pirate-y". My disappointment subsided as soon as I was able to see these colors outside of setting where a salesgirl wasn't asking me if I needed help every five minutes lol. I have a soft spot for muted and murky colors and once I was able to see that ALL these colors fit that bill I was in love. O.P.I has this ability to make colors that creep up on me and I always end up loving what they do. The formula on all of this colors is beyond amazing. Even though they are soft "pastel- like" colors the formula did not reflect that at all with how smooth and consistent it was. I have to say my top Three are definitely On Stranger Tides, Steady as She Rose and Mermaids Tears. Of course, Silver Shatter is an absolute must have as well. I will say that now I am super excited for the movie to come out and wear an awesome mani with the awesome colors from this great collection! EPIC Win!

What are your favorites from this collection?
