Spring Beauty Review: O.P.I. Pirates of Caribbean Stranger Tides - The Greens Are Winning Me Over!

The softer sides of green are drawing me in and is now this season's "it" colour of the moment for me. I'm loving all versions in teal, mint green, and now this more muted sage shade from O.P.I's Pirates of Caribbean collection called Stranger Tides.

Stranger Tides is not a shocking shade for spring, but it's a new neutral without being so neutral. On my skin tone, it looks more natural but I imagine on someone more fairer it would stand out a lot more. I love this shade especially since it's one I definitely don't own already. The only thing I find with this cream collection is that you need to apply 3 coats to cover evenly (maybe it's just the way I apply it). Otherwise, it's a lovely shade to add to your spring collection! 

Have you tried this O.P.I. shade? Love it? Hate it? Want it?

Product was sent for editorial consideration and I really love it.

I like that colour! It looks more grey than green though. Which for me is good, I'm scared of green on my nails :P

@Elaine - the flash may be throwing the colour off a bit. In person, it looks more sage green than grey. But I was never a fan of green on the nails but this version is perfect!

I have been looking ALL OVER for this color! I live in an out-of-the-way area and we don't get much of the brand new stuff out here. You've convinced me that I need to take the trip to find this!

I saw a beauty editor with it on & in love...however my "beauty dealer" has no more in stock so I'll have to wait till it comes out in stores. Its GORGEOUS! I want that shade & I also want Chanel Mimosa which isn't out yet.

@Ali - Since it's such a unique shade I think it's definitely worth the trip!

@Beauty Parler - LOL "beauty dealer"! It would look amazing on you! It's the new neutral for spring! I'll have to check out Chanel Mimosa!
