Opi - Stranger Tides

Yo ho ho! Arghg! Other cliche pirate phrases! Stranger Tides is from OPI's latest Disney themed Pirates of the Caribbean collection. It is a very pale, almost khaki green creme. It is pretty unusual, don't think I've seen anything else like it.

I found the formula a tad bit annoying. It managed to be both thick and streaky at the same time (a common problem with pastel cremes). There was also some cuticle drag (for my non polish obsessed friends, this is when applying a second or third coat starts pulling off previous coats and leaves bare spots near the cuticle.) I had to wait a few minutes between each coat to avoid this and needed 3 coats (one thin, two thick) for full coverage.

In the end, I absolutely adore this color, though I'm not quite sure how I feel about it with my skin tone. I'm excited to wear it once I'm tan. I think this will look great on cooler complexions and also on deeper skin tones (aka everyone but me).

Now I must hunt down Silver Shatter so I can frolick around with trendy nails and ignore strange looks from people who just don't understand.
