I’ve been hearing a lot lately that the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection has dupes for the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. I don’t own any of the shades from POTC but after a recent purchase of Sinful Colors Innocent, I wanted to try a few more shades from the brand. After suggestions from a few of my readers, I went to Rite Aid to check out the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection. I found the greens to be pretty unique so I picked up Rise and Shine, Seaweed, Open Seas and Adventure Island…
Rise and Shine is a turquoise green with faint silver shimmer that dries to a semi-matte finish. I took this one with flash so that you can see the shimmer. It is still pretty much true to color. It is a repromote from the permanent Sinful Colors line-up and is not a dupe for any shades from OPI POTC. This is my favorite of the bunch! Reminds me of F21 Teal Polish but with shimmer.
Seaweed is a pale pea green creme with slight grey undertones. It is a dupe of Stranger Tides from OPI POTC and also Essie Da Bush.
Open Seas is a dirty pastel sea foam green creme. It is a dupe of Mermaid’s Tears from OPI POTC.
Adventure Island is a dirty pastel chartreuse yellow creme. This shade was the first to catch my eye as it looked so unique in the bottle. I have recently become obsessed with different shades of dirty pale greens.
The purple shade, Verbena which is supposed to be a dupe of Planks a Lot from OPI POTC, looks like a lighter version of China Glaze Spontaneous. Verbena is also a repromote and permanent shade. One of the pinks, Starfish is supposed to be a dupe of Steady as She Rose from OPI POTC. There is also Beautiful Girl a bright pastel pink, and Easing Going which is a very pale pastel pink. Neither of these are dupes for any shades from OPI POTC. I did not pick up the rest of the shades from Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection because I already have similar shades in my collection.
Dupes or not, the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection is beautiful in it’s own right and very affordable at $1.99 a pop. Not only are the polishes super cheap, they are of great quality. They apply smooth and last long on the nails without chipping. OPI can retail anywhere between $8-$15 a bottle. Sinful Colors is clearly the winner in my book!
