OPI Skull and Glossbones nail polish swatch

OPI Skull and Glossbones is part of their current movie-themed capsule collection for the upcoming Pirates of the Carribean film, On Stranger Tides.

A delicate sage-tinted grey without any shimmers or pearls, Skull and Glossbones is perfect for fairbears who find stark greys difficult to wear. The faint twist of green takes away most of the harshness without becoming totally green-o-rama, but on the flip side there’s no mistaking this as anything but a clean and soft pale grey.
Application was a dream – two coats gave perfect coverage with no pulling, steaks or bald patches. Maybe I’m just used to pastel polishes being a streaky nightmare, but out of the four polishes I’ve tried from this collection so far (swatches to come!) they’ve all been a pleasure to apply.

OPI Skull and Glossbones retails for AU$19.95 for 15mL, and the Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection is available now at Adore Beauty.

  1. wow, OPI is expensive in Australia!
    But the colour is beautiful I bought it today.
    I can’t wait to try it!

  2. Playa Del Plaitnum from Essie is an exact dupe. I can’t believe I bought it. Now I have two of the same colors. :/

  3. Wow I love it. Looks the same colour as our car lol

    • Haha, same! Run some fine pearl through it and it’s my old beater car.

  4. yeah it kinda looks like grey on first look. but its still a pretty color! love it

    • Definitely grey on the first glance, but the more you look at it the more you notice the delicate twist of sage. I love greys and more masculine colours anyway, so I’m a bit one-eyed when it comes to polishes like this.
