Nail Picks - OPI Pirates


I've been stuck in a bit of a rut with nail polish at the moment. I have so many, and when I'm out I gravitate towards anything sparkly, but for some reason I've been using the same polishes over and over for the past couple of months. So I'm making a promise to myself to delve into my collection and change up my nails a bit more often. My current picks are both from OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean collection, Stranger Tides and Planks a Lot. 


I loved all of the colours in this collection, and searched the internet high and low for a decent price. At that point I wasn't aware of the reputable eBay sellers I would purchase from now, but I ended up picking these up in a trio in TK Maxx for £14.99.

Stranger Tides is one of my favourite polishes. It's a gorgeous murky green creme. A couple coats of this and you're good to go with no streakiness. Planks a Lot is another creme formula, but far more streaky than Stranger Tides. It takes a good three or four coats for me to get this completely opaque, but I adore the blue-lavender shade. This looks gorgeous with a bit of silver glitter on the tips.


I love the shades in this collection so much I'm tempted to pick up another in future, providing they're still around! What's on your nails at the moment?

  2. OPI nail polishes are always so nice and i love their collections all the time. They are a bit on the pricier side, but for the amount of product you get, it is justifiable hehe. Out of these two colours, i like the 'planks a lot' more although you did say that it was more streaky than the other one~ I love TkMaxx, there are always great beauty buys~ Thanks so much for sharing and i hope you have a nice day~ X x X x

    1. That's my favourite out of the two, much less streaky and dries faster :)
