Hello Lacquer Lovers! So glad that I have swatches of part of the OPI Skyfall Collection to share with you today. I love James Bond movies and especially the ones starred by Daniel Craig!! Don't judge me though ^.^
For swatches below, I have two coats of the polish plus top coat, unless stated otherwise.
Die Another Day is a bright apple red with shimmer. I am not a huge fan of reds, but this one looks pretty good. It dried a tad lighter than the bottle and a bit brush-stroky (I know there's no such word but you get the drift!). I think Die Another Day is really juicy and classic.
You Only Live Twice, a fuchsia red with glass flecked finish. I really love polish with this sort of finish, the depth it creates is to die for!
On Her Majesty's Secret Service has a bluish charcoal base filled with gold, blue and purple micro-flakes. The formula of this one was on the sheer side and I applied 3 coats here. Like other bloggers mentioned, this one did have a distinctive rancid smell. I have to hold my breath while using it!
Live and Let Die, a moss green with shimmering glass flecks. My favourite finish which gives you the 'lit from within' look.
The Skyfall collection has already been released on European soil. You can get them from LenaWhite. Die Another Day & You Only Live Twice were PR samples. I bought On Her Majesty's Secret Service & Live and Let Die when visiting the Olympia Beauty Event.
