Let's take a look at the line. It features six new shades inspired by this summer's version of the Pirates franchise: Skull & Glossbones, Steady as She Rose, Sparrow Me the Drama, Planks a Lot, Stranger Tides, and Mermaid's Tears (see below; the color on the left end is the Silver Shatter...keep reading!).
Here's my question for you: what's your take on the crackled look? Is it a hit or a miss?
Here are my two cents on the matter:
- For me, I personally don't like this look. I prefer a neater, more polished look. It's interesting, yes, but nothing I'd want to wear.
- This nail technique reminds me so much of faux finishes used on furniture in old home improvement/decorating TV shows from the 90s. Somewhere Christopher Lowell is loving this nail trend. (Don't know who I'm talking about? Click here!)
- I am not loving the new Pirates of the Caribbean nail line from OPI. There wasn't a single color I was excited about, but maybe I'm just jaded. I'm not a huge Pirates fan (I find the movies stupid and--worse--boring!), so a beauty tie-in doesn't ring my chimes.
