From collaborations with celebrities like Katy Perry to a collection inspired by "Glee," OPI is clearly a company that likes to create nail polish collections that are pop-culture related.

So, it's no surprise that OPI recently announced that they would be collaborating with another pop culture hit -- the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise -- to create a nail polish collection inspired by the upcoming flick "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

According to Stylelist, the collection will include six limited-edition nail polishes: "Planks a Lot, a lust-worthy purple; Sparrow Me the Drama, a pink that means business; Skull & Glossbones, a gorgeous light gray; Mermaid's Tears, a magical green; and Stranger Tides, an unchartered sea of sage." Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI's executive VP and artistic director, discussed the inspiration for the colors:

"'The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' lacquers were inspired by a world filled with mythical mermaids, gleaming treasure and high-seas adventure. With shades ranging from sage and lavender to khaki gray and pastel pink, these colors are evocative of a warm, tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence."

Also included in the collection is "Silver Shatter," a shimmering, metallic top coat that creates a crackled pattern -- similar to the "Black Shatter" topcoat that OPI released earlier this year. The collection will be available at the beginning of May, to coincide with the release of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" on May 20th. Each polish will sell for $8.5o and will be available at OPI retailers like JCPenney and ULTA.
