I’ve been looking forward to this collection for what seems like an eternity and a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be sent a couple out to try.

CND Nail Effects

The shades I was sent to try are the Silver Shatter top coat and Stranger Tides, a fab looking murky grey/khaki shade.

CND Nail Effects

So first up is Stranger Tides. I love this colour!

OPI Stranger Tides

I found it slightly streaky, three coats is definitely better than two (there are two in the above pic) and I pretty much haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it. I remove it when it’s chipped and put it straight back on again. Virtually unheard of for me but my nails are quite short and damaged at the moment, worse than in the above picture and this is a nice colour that doesn’t draw too much attention to my fingers but definitely doesn’t feel boring.

You may be looking at that picture above and be thinking it gives me terrible lobster fingers, but it doesn’t at all. My fingers are decidedly red because of the colour I’d just removed (as can be seen in the second picture down). I seem incapable of removing reds, shocking pinks and blues without leaving it all over my fingers.

Anyway, I digress. Silver Shatter. I thought I was over shatter polishes to be honest but I love this!

OPI Silver Shatter

I think the two shades work together really well and I love it. It’s a more subtle effect that the Black Shatter and the formula is nicer too. So yeah, thats the polish I’ve been rocking for the last fortnight. Love it.

The collection isn’t out yet but I plan to buy Mermaid’s Tears, Sparrow Me The Drama and Skull & Glossbones although I wouldn’t mind the others as well! I’ll be looking to see which are in the mini’s set when it’s released!

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean

Any of these take your fancy?

I’m not sure of the exact release date but am sure it’s pretty imminent and will be available as always from http://www.lenawhite.co.uk/ at £10.50 each.

    Looks lovely, I have to admit I am very excited about this mini collection. never used a shatter before but the silver might tempt me (is supposedly in the OPI TSV on QVC on Wednesday). Having passed on the whole Texas one, I think I can justify all the Pirate polishes x

    Ohh I love that silver shatter!!

  5. Skin Scrubs says:

    I agree I love the silver shatter better than the black shatters which look a bit harsh. I’ve also seen some really nice coloured shatters too.

    Oh, I thought I was completely over the shatter polishes til I saw this! The silver looks classy and unique rather than the black which can look a bit *whispers really quitely* trashy over the wrong colour! It looks sort of antique’ed!
