OPI's swashbuckling new polishes

By Amy Lawrenson



Being related to a pirate, Admiral Benbow, who had a public House named after him in the book Treasure Island, anything to do with pirates captures my interest. Today, OPI held a launch at the replica Golden Hinde ship in London to launch its Pirates of the Caribbean collection, which will launch just before the film hits the big screen. OPI is renowned for its great themed launches and this was no exception. The collection of six polishes are not the black, red and gold as you would expect, instead I was met by a soft green called Mermaid Tears (my favourite), a great opaque purple called Planks A Lot and of course in a nod to Captain Jack Sparrow, a pretty pink shade called Sparrow me the Drama. There is also a new Silver Shatter Top Coat, which gives Mermaid's Tears a real sparkling sea effect.

The Pirates of Caribbean: on stranger tides collection launches end of April. £10.50 each.
