Pirates of the Caribbean and OPI seemed as unlikely a combination as this muddy blend of pale grey and pastel green. "Stranger Tides" brought to mind gooey seaweed, slimy tentacles, discoloured deep sea creatures, and a completely different source of inspiration, namely the Cthulhu mythos. But I digress! An excellent colour on my nails and surprisingly versatile, as many other users have observed. It is an uncanny match to any colour I might wear, and those are many...
Stranger Tides is a greyed sage green color. Application was easy, smooth and the polish dried to a shiny finish even without top coat. Highly recommend this color if you can still find it.
Alot more green-ier than I expected. This is my first OPI polish and actually havent found anything amazing about it, the application was horrible, took anywhere from 2-4 coats to get it right and by the 4th it started to get very gooey and wouldnt dry properly and chipped within minutes. I'd descibe the colour as a light olive green or a very very green-nude colour which isnt flattering at all on my NC10 skin.
Wish i'd of done some more research on this colour and would not repurchase again either.
This is one of my most worn polishes and is a no-brainer color: one I grab when I'm not quite sure what to wear. It's perfect because it's work appropriate but still interesting. It's one of those edgy neutral polishes that I love so much. It works beautifully with my cool-toned skin tone. The mint green nail polish trend doesn't work for me - it gives me lobster hands - so this moody pistachio color is a nice alternative.
This is a sage green color that pulls more grey in some lights and more green in others. The finish is really cool and unique for my (sizable) collection. It has a neat sheen that's not super glossy... It's kind of satiny. For that reason, I prefer OPI Stranger Tides to Essie Da Bush, although they both look very similar.
I took off one star because application is not the greatest; towards the end of your manicure, the polish can get kind of gloopy regardless of what you do. But overall I love this color, as well as all the Pirates of the Caribbean colors. As a side note, if you love murky greens like this one, OPI Suzi Takes the Wheel is another great polish!
This I scored at winners for a awesome price..... I found this an awesome bast color a very chamelon shade that I do not have to worry about clashing or overtaking my outfit. Very much enjoyed!
I love this green, it's like military green (well the pale version). But in the spring when I wear a lot of khaki colors it's great! Lasts a long time and it gets many compliments. It's a cream, this shade shines because of the glossiness!
Loooooooooooove this colour. It's like a taupey-greeny-gray. Goes on like a dream.
This is a pale grey sage green creme polish. I love this color. It is super unique. The formula is really nice. I liked it best with two coats.
This is a lovely sage green and leans towards the pastel creme finish. It's a nice colour on my skin-tone at the moment but I think it would look even better during the Summer with a tan. The formula was fairly easy to work with but being a pastel, it had a patchier formula but I didn't experience any streaking. It takes a bit more patience/effort to apply this and I used two coats until I was satisfied with the finish. I have it on now with their Silver Shatter polish on top and it's a fabulous combo.
I was extremely skeptical about this colour, but I got it anyway as I purchased the whole colllection but suprisingly when it arrived - stranger tides was the first one I wore. I was extremely suprised that i actually liked wearing it, but after a day I didn't really. It's a really unique colour, sometimes it can even look like a really pale olive green. I'd read rave reviews about it's aplication and was a LITTLE dissapointed, although it was very workable. I used three coats as it was a little streaky - but only if you don't have a very genourous amount on your brush.
