OPI - Stranger Tides - Green for Depression Awareness

Nails I Love

OPI – Stranger Tides

Hi Goddesses

Unexplained Mysteries of the Universe Vol 333 – why do I love this polish so much ?

Let’s see …
  • Do you like green as a polish colour?  NO
  • Do you like pastels?  NO
  • Were you impressed with the Pirates of The Caribbean Collection when it first came out?  Er, NOOOO
  • Hhhmmm this makes NO sense!

Lol.  It’s weird, but I ADORE this polish.  When POC came out, with the exception of Planks A Lot I hated them all.  I thought they were weak wishy-washy pastels and just soooo sub-standard.  However, not being one to resist a bargain, I came across a cheap set of them on eBay and bought them to sell on, and then … gulp, fell in love with them.

There is something in the formula of these POC polishes that separates them from everything else.  They go on like butter, shine like a supermodel’s hair in a L’Oreal ad, and have a glossiness that is unparalleled.  They look like pearls.  Pearls.  Beautiful multi-coloured pearls.

And they make me feel like a lady J  they do.  There is something undeniably elegant about them that just screams “good taste” lol – ignore them at your peril, these polishes are subtle charmers.

Stranger Tides is the green one then, but the lesser green one (Mermaid’s Tears being the darker green, if a pastel can be called dark).  Anyway … this is super glossy, super elegant, looks like a pearl, and is just the softest, fluffiest, most delicate pale green you’ve ever seen.

I think most of all I love that all of these are built on a cream base rather than a white base – this just bleeds all the starkness away, leaving you with something elegant, subtle and pure.

Love.  J


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
