This collection won't be launching until May, but I'm so excited about it that I couldn't wait to share the preview images! OPI is releasing this collection in conjunction with the release of the 4th Pirates movie.
“OPI is thrilled to celebrate the latest film in this beloved series,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides lacquers were inspired by a world filled with mythical mermaids, gleaming treasure, and high-seas adventure. With shades ranging from sage and lavender to khaki gray and pastel pink, these colors are evocative of a warm, tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence.”
Read on to see more images of the colors, OPI's description of each shade, and the reason I'm so excited about this collection.
These images were provided to me by OPI, though you can see the shades are a little bit darker when you compare to the display image above. Hopefully these images and descriptions will give you some idea of what to expect from the colors. Personally, I'm interested in the entire collection. I'm a sucker for dark pinks and purples, but the gray of Skull & Glossbones especially sounds amazing as well.
Skull & Glossbones: Best light gray ever, no bones about it.
Steady as She Rose: This gorgeous pink is your final destination.
Planks a Lot: Dive into style with this lustworthy purple!
Stranger Tides: Explore this uncharted sea of sage.
Mermaid’s Tears: Few have seen this magical green.
Sparrow Me the Drama: This cool, collected pink means business!
Black Shatter was huge earlier this winter when it was released, and now Silver Shatter is coming out! This will work perfectly with the colors in the rest of this collection and I think I'll be reaching for this color a lot more than I use my Black Shatter.
Pirates of the Carribbean is coming out in May 2011.
