Soooo, OPI recently launched a James Bond holiday collection. Bond 007 officially turned 50 this year and so what better way to celebrate than with a collection? I’m pretty lame for not knowing much about the flicks but when I told Esposo about this collection, he got all interested. Mind you, my husband has NEVER been interested about any of my beauty stuffs so that says a lot. Anywho, the most recent Bond movie, Skyfall, came out on November 9th and so this collection has come at the perfect time. It’s a huge collection of 12 polishes so I’m breaking ’em up in 2 posts.
Skyfall is described as a magnificent maroon and I can dig it. I love dusty burgundy shades like these. It’s not terribly unique but it is ideal for fall and makes a great base for topping off with glitter.
Casino Royale is a pretty plum and ZOMG, I am in love with this baby. I’m struggling to think of any dupes for this one so um, yeah…if you don’t get any other shades in this collection, this is definitely one that I’d consider.
You Only Live Twice is a rich high-shimmer magenta that we’ve seen before. It’s perfect and pretty and has enough shimmer to appeal to the glitter junkies of the world.
Die Another Day is a hot and lively red. OPI is good at always including reds in their collection. This one is just okay to me. I do like how there is a bit of orange to it though.
Tomorrow Never Dies is an intense purple but really it’s much more than that. And my camera can hardly capture its epic-ness. It shifts from a blueberry blue to a bright purple and back with the blink of an eye. It’s stunning.
The Spy Who Loved Me is another red that looks a lot like You Only Live Twice. The main difference between the two? TSWLM has more red in it than orange.
–Skyfall: Especially if you need a really nice maroon in your stash.
–Casino Royale: Because just look at the bottle. ‘Nuff said, right?
–Tomorrow Never Dies: If you’re a nail polish lover, it’s unlikely that you have one THIS captivating.
Not bad for the first 6, uh? Stay tuned for the other 6. This collection is currently available at Ulta and JC Penny Salons.
