Nails of the Week: the OPI Skyfall collection
Remember we told you about OPI's James Bond-themed Skyfall collection? Well we finally got our hands on it (okay, we got it a couple of weeks ago but we've needed some quality time together before we shared them with the world) and we can safely say it's probably our favourite OPI collection to date.
Seriously. We've only tried four colours: Goldeneye, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The World Is Not Enough and The Living Daylights, but the quality, both in the formula and the colour is so strong, the entire team is completely in love with them.
I thought my favourite would be The Living Daylights, but actually Goldeneye has pipped it to the post. I've never seen a gold like it. The tiny, tiny micro particles of orangey-toned glitter create the most beautiful finish - because they're so small, they look like a solid colour but with the multi facets of a glitter. After two coats, the finish is like a shimmering fabric made of pure gold.
The Living Daylights is still a close second though: a clear polish which holds small discs of teal, burnt orange and silver glitter, the finish is seriously sparkly. It's like wearing confetti on your nails.
The World Is Not Enough is another micro shimmery polish, overall a gunmetal-silver colour but with green undertones and On Her Majesty's Secret Service is very similar, but with pale pink undertones. Because these are all made of tiny particles, they also work really well layered - we layered Goldeneye over The World Is Not Enough to create an awesome darker gold effect (which you can see on the nail right at the bottom of the image).
A really strong collection, and I can't wait to try the rest. Oh and look out for the gold leaf top coat, The Man With The Golden Gun in the movie! What do you think?
