OPI Skyfall...

There's no better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of James Bond then with an OPI collection!!  OPI Skyfall is a twelve piece holiday collection of seductive and dangerous shades that honor the man of mystery 007.  "Read More" for more photos and to enjoy the rest of the review!


This collection has a nice mix of finishes, from shimmers to glitters to cremes to even a frost.  Application is good overall with one exception, Moonraker.  The frosty silver metallic Moonraker is difficult to apply due to streaking and pooling.  The shimmers in this collection are intense and complex with two to three coats to reach opacity.  The glitter, The Living Daylights, is a beautiful blend of colors and is more of a layering glitter.  The cremes are buttery smooth and cover well at two coats each.  There are some established dupes out there for some of these lacquers.  What shades will make it into your collection?

  5. Casino Royale is a lot prettier than I expected... On the other hand I'm not as excited as I thought I would be for The World is Not Enough.
    It's gonna be hard to choose!

  13. They could have done so much better for Moonraker. If I wanted a frosty blue, I'd jump in my time machine to the 80s. :)
