If you guys saw my last post you'll already know my love for James Bond (more importantly - Daniel Craig! Mmm). & if you're a frequent reader you'll definitely be familiar with my love of OPI! So when the 2 collaborated I died & went to heaven! Well, maybe not.. but I was a very happy girl!
I'm such a saddo that I was checking my local beauty warehouse on a weekly basis, waiting for these bad boys to hit the shelves! Then when they did, I didn't hesitate on chucking the majority of them in my basket. The collection contains 12 different polishes, of which I own 9. (Only 8 are pictured below, I may have bought another 1 after taking these pictures ;) ).
L-R: You only live twice, the world is not enough, the spy who loved me, casino royale, on her majesty's secret service, the living daylights, goldeneye & live & let die.
The additional polish is Skyfall & can be seen in a NOTD post here.
Now, lets take a closer look at these gorgeous polishes :D
L-R: Goldeneye, Live & Let Die, The Spy Who Loved Me & Casino Royale.
Goldeneye. Goldeneye can be seen swatched in a NOTD here. This polish contains gorgeous gold foil flakes. I initially thought it would work only as a topcoat, over a base colour; but actually it is fully opaque after just 2 coats. It's a really beautiful polish with a very glam finish!
Live & Let Die. A gorgeous dark emerald/green with tiny gold flecks running throughout.
The Spy Who Loved Me. Can be seen swatched below. I love this polish! It's a really vibrant orange-toned red. It almost has a jelly affect & leaves a lovely glossy finish. Tiny gold flecks run throughout the polish, making it perfect for the Christmas season ahead :D
Casino Royale. A berry purple shade, with a creme finish.
L-R: On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Living Daylights, You Only Live Twice & The World Is Not Enough.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service. A silvery-blue base with green, blue & silver flecks running throughout.
The Living Daylights. Can be seen swatched below. I love this polish! It makes a great top coat, but can also be layered to full opacity. It's a clear polish containing hexagonal glitters of blue, gold, bronze & silver. The glitters are flat, therefore leaving a smooth surface, unlike many other glitters.
You Only Live Twice. This is one of my faves! It's a base of magenta pink, with gold flecks running throughout. Like The Spy Who Loved Me, it leave a lovely jelly finish. Gorgeous polish if you're a pink lover like me :)
The World Is Not Enough. This one is quite hard to explain. It's base colour is almost a bronze/taupe shade with tiny pink, green & brown flecks running through. The colours combined gives it a kind of rose gold finish.
As well as the 12 Skyfall polishes, OPI also created a limited edition masterpiece! The Man With The Golden Gun is a topcoat polish containing real 18K gold, can you believe?! 18K gold on your nails?! Wow. I just couldn't resist. This is going to look PERFECT during the Christmas period :D
After my massive splurge I just had to go home & try some of these bad boys out! Below is The Spy Who Loved Me with The Living Daylights on my accent nails.
I get way too excited over OPI collections! But, the Skyfall collection is, by far, my favourite. Lemme know your opinions on the Skyfall collection & other OPI collections you'd recommend.
