Finally got my hands on the OPI Pirates Of The Caribbean collection! : D
Some swatches! My pinky nail always catches the light wrongly so the color may be a little off at the pinky… Sorry! : |It’s a rose pink, very very sweet color. Skulls & Crossbones is <3. I thought it was a little alike to Zoya Dove, but it has a certain murkiness to it while Dove is a shade darker and not so yellow toned. Here's a comparison: [caption id="attachment_4070" align="aligncenter" width="550" caption="OPI Skulls & Crossbones (left) , Zoya Dove (right)"][/caption]
This was really a little hard to capture – So i had to do some photo editing to make the color fit. It really looked like Orly’s Ancient Jade from their Precious collection, and I just had to compare:
Orly’s Ancient Jade is a tad brighter, they were almost dupes, but not really. I prefer Mermaid’s Tears actually. I think the entire OPI collection had a little murkiness added to them, and the “dullness” is distinguishable, but still sweet.
Another color hard to capture and I had to edit this a little – It’s a nice pastel – but not terribly unique to me – Reminds me of the purple from the Shrek collection but i’m sure that’s brighter and slightly than this.
This is a really, really, REALLY light lilac. It’s not pink like the previous swatches I featured (which were not mine!) on the preview post – it surprised me somewhat, but I like it. And yes, murky lilac.
And two from the Texas collection…
Creme brown. Not my type.
Grey white shimmer. Nice, but I prefer cremes for this kindda shade! : p I think this would look good with a matte top coat over it.
Thanks to Veronica for letting me swatch her 2 Texas polishes!
And of course I bought Silver Shatter. I think it’s a perfect combi with my dark polishes… Or so I thought.
First, a sample palette
With Silver shatter over…
Swatched it over some dark colors to see how it looks…
With Silver Shatter over…
It doesn’t really shatter as pretty as I thought it would, but I really love how it looks over Essie Aruba Blue, and also surprisingly, it looked really nice over Sparrow Me The Drama. : D
Okay till the next swatch fest! : D
My 過大禮 is this Saturday, and I’m leaving for Korea-HK this Sunday. Excited!!! *rushes work too*
