I do love a good movie beauty collaboration and this one from OPI is pretty damn impressive.

While The Pirates of the Caribbean shades will become your new must-have colours, the real treasure trove is the new crackling shimmery two-texture silver finish know as Silver Shatter top coat.  It follows on from the success of OPI’s Black Shatter top coat, and was inspired by graffiti artist.

  1. Seen the move again not long ago and realised how corny it really was!! I’m a pirate, to be sure! I am more mermaid as I love swimming in the sea (rather than sailing on it), enjoy eating raw fish (sashimi), I have a glittering personality, collects sea shells and am a girl! definitely a pirate, I’m always on the lookout for hidden treasures while out shopping & at garage sales.

  2. I’m a mermaid! On good hair days, my long mermaid-like locks turn wavier than the high seas. If im lucky enough i might catch the eye of a cute fisherman 😉

  3. I am more mermaid as I love swimming in the sea (rather than sailing on it), enjoy eating raw fish (sashimi), I have a glittering personality, collects sea shells and am a girl!

  4. I like to think of myself as a pirate. I’m always embarking on some sort of adventure (to the shops), looking for new treasures to steal (the best bargains on the rack from other bargain hunters) and of course swearing like a sailor (when I miss out on a great sale!)

  5. definately pirate – love the thought of sailing the seas finding hidden treasure in beautiful far flung places

  6. A Mermaid….definitely.
    I think pirates are scarey….
    Mermaids are sugar spice and everything nice…. why would you not have a positive start to your day.

  7. Pirate. There’s so much excitement & freedom. It would be amazing to be able to travel anywhere you wanted do what you wanted, to find treasure and be rich beyond your dreams.

  8. I would be a pirate:

    The idea of sailing the seven seas, wind in my hair, sword on my hip searching for that elusive buried treassure……..

  9. Im not one eyed or do fishy business, Im a land lubber through and through, so if I had to chose between the two it would be a pirate without a ship

  10. As a teen I loved the movie ‘Splash’ and so wanted to be Madison the Mermaid (aka Daryl Hannah). Seen the move again not long ago and realised how corny it really was!! Still think I’m a bit of a mermaid though!

  11. Pirate, definitely! I’ve got black & green striped skinny jeans and a tee with a pirate ship on it. I’m a galleon and crew away from being the biggest, baddest thing on the sea.

  12. I’m definitely a pirate – I love my hats too much to be a mermaid, plus you get all the shiny jewels and metals.

    Then you also get the upside of dressing however you see fit and randomly shouting out arrrr.

    Remember: it’s more fun to be a pirate than it is to join the navy!

  13. Aussie girls, we love the ocean,
    Water is a magic potion.
    Swimming, cruising, sun and sea.
    Gorgeous mermaid I’d love to be.

  20. Definitly a pirate because I dont like the idea of becoming shark food or being chased all over the ocean buy one as a mermaid.

  21. Ahhh me matey I’ve got the gold in my pocket and the wind in my hair. If department stores were carried on ships, I’d be pirated to rob and steal all that fashion.

    Dressed all in my gay pirate colours and
    wearing Planks a lot, I look the pirate part

  24. I’m a mermaid, with long luscious locks;
    if it weren’t for all this water I’d be dressed in gorgeous frocks!

  26. ssssssssh don’t tell everyone but I’m a mermaid posing as a pirate posing as a dog bloopblooparrrrrrrrghwoof

  27. I’d quite like to be a mermaid but I puzzle over certain aspects of the lifestyle. Like, how do they go to the loo? Where do they plug in their straighters? These things keep me awake at night sometimes…

  28. I am am mermaid BUT if it means that I could get close to Mr Depp! then I’am a pirate, no questions asked!

  29. My parrot said I’m as pretty as a mermaid
    … but only ‘cos he know I’ll make him walk the plank if he doesn’t behave!

  30. Mermaid for sure! I used to be a Pirate when I was younger- roller blading, pyromaniac, always in shorts and a t-shirt. Until I discovered shopping and turned from the tomboy pirate to the princess mermaid!

  31. My hair doesn’t style well at Sea
    Scaly and Fishy, it’s really not me
    A pirate then I would be
    Fat pants, blokes and a parrot named Dee

  34. A pirate’s life for me, I pillage and plunder the pantry cupboard till all is eaten then I nod off sleepin!

  35. A mermaid I may be,
    but be careful of what you see,
    for I may appear to be beautiful,
    but be worse than a pirates evil!

  36. As appealing as a one-eyed, drunken, plundering pirate may be … I’m more of a frolic in the waves, sunbathe on the rocks in a shell bikini kind of girl!

  37. I’m no perfect siren, sitting on a rock,
    So a pirate I’d have to be-
    I’d be jolly happy to receive a call,
    Saying this treasure was coming to me!

  38. I am a pirate for sure. After breastfeeding twins, there is no way I would be putting these saggy boobs of mine on display!

  39. Definitely a mermaid.I am the first person to get in the water, rain or shine,hot or cold.I live for the water!

  40. Oh I’m definately a pirate… a bit disheveled, a bit naughty, a bit charming and totally in need of some styling as well as nail polish 🙂
    And IF by some chance Johnny Depp is around I’m happy to share girls!

  41. A mermaid as I love to swim,
    But I don’t have a big fin.
    I have the smile,
    And I can stay in without crozzling for a while!

  42. Mermaid. Swimming about in the sea, lazily lying around on rocks in the sun. Sounds like the life for me! Pirates – too much like hard work!

  43. Pirate,as a pirate i wouldn’t have to be so accommodating and could do things my way without looking sweet and lovely like Mermaids do.

    tempting sailors with my beauty
    to wreck their ships with my soft songs or distracting men and causing them to fall overboard!

  49. I am definitely more of a mermaid…I’ve got thick long tresses and a penchant for shells and trinkets. I’d love for a pirate to sweep my off my tail though!
