OPI's Summer 2011 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Collection came out just over a month ago.. And while I hunted for weeks to snag myself a bottle of the elusive "Silver Shatter".. I just couldn't bring myself to buy the rest of the collection.
It's not that I don't love the colors, trust me I do.. but I'm nearing the 150-bottle mark in my stash, so I'm trying to limit myself on how many new polishes I buy. And I just couldn't justify spending $8.50 per bottle for the collection, so I had made peace with letting these slip by unpurchased until I saw this display in Rite-Aid today:
Y'all. I had a moment... in Rite-Aid. And it was embarrassing. In the middle of my squealing and happy dancing, one of the store associates actually came over and asked if I was okay. (I wasn't okay, I was humiliated!) But that's beside the point..
I'm just going to cut to the chase and tell you the exact dupes, the "sort of dupes", the OPI without a dupe, and then I'll list the extra random Sinful polishes for you. Here we go:
OPI Mermaid's Tears -- Sinful Colors Open Seas
OPI Sparrow Me the Drama -- Sinful Colors Star Fish
OPI Planks a Lot -- Sinful Colors Verbena
OPI Stranger Tides -- Sinful Colors Seaweed
"SORT OF DUPES"
OPI Steady as She Rose -- Sinful Colors Easy Going
**The main difference between the two is that Steady as She Rose has a grey base, where as Easy Going is definitely a pale pink base.**
THE OPI WITHOUT A DUPE
OPI Skull & Glossbones
OTHER RANDOM SINFUL 'ADVENTURE ISLAND' POLISHES
Beautiful Girl -- Medium Bright Pink
Adventure Island -- Reminiscent of a pastel "Shrek" Green
Rise & Shine -- Turquoise/Teal

And that's it! I got 4 Sinful polishes (Easy Going, Star Fish, Open Seas & Verbena) for the cost of ONE OPI polish. I'm so happy! I can't wait to play with my Silver Shatter over these and see how they turn out!
Will you be snatching up any of the Sinful Dupes? Or have you already bought the OPI collection? Let me know!
