OPI Skyfall Collection.


As soon as OPI released the James Bond Skyfall nail polish collection, I wanted it. I ordered it a few days ago and it finally arrived today! They've brought out a whole load of full sized bottles as well, including the much lusted over Man With The Golden Gun, which is 18k gold nail polish, but I wanted the mini collection. I never finish a full bottle of polish as I chop and change them so regularly, so I love the OPI collections and have a few of them, because the mini bottles are the perfect size for me.

Is anyone else hating the dark evenings? I worked today and it was dark when I got home so had to take photos in artificial light, and ugh. It's horrid, so please excuse the poor quality photos this evening. These photos really don't do the nail polishes justice as these colours are absolutely gorgeous in real life! Each photo is of my nails with two coats of polish and no top coat.

Anyway, the first colour in the collection is 'Goldeneye', and is a really gorgeous yellow-gold glitter colour. Absolutely perfect for Christmas and New Year coming up and I really really love it. I've been after a good solid glitter gold for ages, and this is it!

The Spy Who Loved Me polish is a gorgeous bright pillar box red colour with glitter (all the polishes in the mini collection are glitter polishes), and such a sexy colour - I think this is definitely going to be my go-to polish over Christmas!

The next colour in the collection is The World Is Not Enough, which is the most beautiful silver with flecks of pinks and dark greys through the glitter which shimmer in the light. This is definitely going to be my winter staple!

And finally, the piece-de-resistence, Live And Let Die. A deep luscious green labelled on the package as being 'jet black'. It is not jet black, it is so much more. It is a deep green glitter, that just looks like 007 on your fingernails. For me this colour is the 'most' Bond out of them all. For some reason it just instantly makes me think of the darkness of 007.

I'm so happy I nabbed this collection, and I'm definitely buying another one to keep me going. I may even grab the full-sized bottles...which I don't often do!
