OPI Skull & Glossbones

Skull & Glossbones from OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean Collection

I've been wanting Skull & Glossbones ever since the Pirates of the Caribbean collection was released alongside the fourth film in the series On Stranger Tides last year. Whilst I didn't particularly enjoy the film I thought the collection had some really nice shades including Mermaid's Tears and Stranger Tides which I'd also love to pick up. Despite my rather large collection of polishes Skull & Glossbones is actually my first OPI shade and I'm very impressed with it. The colour applies smoothly and evenly on the nails and is opaque in two coats which I think is impressive for such a light shade. I've been wearing it now, with my usual base and top coats, for three days and have no chips so I can now understand why people love this brand so much.
As well as loving how the colour looks on it's own I've seen a lot of people use Skull & Glossbones as an alternative to white as a nail art base colour which personally I think this is a great idea. I hate using white nail polish as I find it's too sheer without applying several coats and I refuse to spend money on a good quality white when it's only ever going to be used as a base. 
Overall I am really impressed with the application, wear, shade and name (!) of this polish and would definitely recommend it. Look out for Skull & Glossbones as the base shade in my next nail art post!

I purchased Skull & Glossbones on eBay for £4.81.

Have you tried any polishes from this collection?
