OPI Pirates of The Caribbean "Mermaid's Tears" + Nubar 2010

I wanted to try the new colors from OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean line that include the newest silver shatter.  But alas, my beauty supply store had every one EXCEPT the shatter!  Why are these so difficult to find?  They just came out and I can't find them?  Oh well, I'm sure I will track one down eventually.
In the meantime, I picked up "Mermaid's Tears", a sea foam green.  I am loving this color!  Very Springy/Summery and different from all the other pastels out there.  It sort of reminds me of the Essie shade "Absolutely Shore" that I tried here, but way more amped up.

And since I was without the lovely silver shatter, I decided to jazz it up with Nubar's 2010.  This is an amazing flaky topcoat that was so hard to capture.  Trust me though, it is wonderful!

You can see more of the copper to green shimmer that the flakes have in these pictures:

I am trying to control my urge to "Nubar 2010"-everything.  Yes, I think I just used that as a verb ;-)


  1. Yay! I love the Hidden Treasue/2010 style flakies. And I'm with you, I went through a phase where I slapped it over every mani for 2 months. And I STILL have to stop myself from doing it to most of them. Mermaid's Tears is gorgeous too!

  2. I am glad you feel that way too! I think I am going to order a 2nd "2010"...something I never do, but I think this is a "back up" sorta polish!

  3. Gorgeous colour :)
