OPI Skyfall Collection 2012
See swatches after the jump...
 
 
OPI Moonraker

OPI Skyfall Collection
Moonraker is a silver blue frost metallic.  The formula is weird giving me streaks and bald spots. Even though the formula was hard to work with, I do love the color  (I'm not giving up on it just yet) it  might work for stamping nail designs. Applied 2 coats.
 
 
OPI The Living Daylights

OPI Skyfall Collection
The Living Daylights is a teal, silver, copper glitter in a clear base.  It's a great combo of colors.  I think it looks fabulous over Moonraker.  I tried polishing it on but no, no it works better by dabbing it on.  
 
 
OPI GoldenEye

GoldenEye is a dark glittery gold. It's so sparkly! The formula is watery but it builds up nicely with 3 coats. 
 
 
OPI The World Is Not Enough
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
The World Is Not Enough is a smokey silver and pink shimmer.  It looks way better in real life and it's totally unique and beautiful.  The formula is thin therefore I needed 3 coats for opacity.
 
 
OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
On Her Majesty's Secret Service a gunmetal silvery blue with green, blue, pink and gold shimmer.  Another unique shade in the collection.  Formula is on the thin side needing 3 coats for opacity. 
 
 
OPI Live And Let Die
OPI Skyfall Collection
Live And Let Die, Look at this! I can't stand it I'm in love with this polish.  It's a deep dark green and gold shimmer.  The formula is AmaaaZing! And it's a ONE COATER! (It's going in my one coater drawer) It's so dreamy.
 
 
OPI Skyfall

Skyfall, a dark maroon creme or could be an oxblood red. Ding, ding, ding another winner for me.  I know most don't like these types of colors but I love wearing them during the fall/winter months.  Great formula with smooth application only needing 2 coats.
 
 
OPI Casino Royale 
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
Casino Royale, a deep purple plum creme another great fall color I like to wear.  Great formula used 2 coats.
 
 
OPI The Spy Who Loved Me
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
The Spy Who Loved Me, I didn't think much of this one from the bottle but once I started applying it oh boy do I love this polish.  It's a bright red packed with gold shimmer. I'm sure there are several dupes for it but it definitely impressed me.  Nice formula I used 2 coats.
 
 
OPI Die Another Day  
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
Die Another Day, a  pretty red shimmer.  The formula is nice and I used 2 coats.
 
 
OPI You Only Live Twice
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
You Only Live Twice, a luscious magenta pink with magenta pink and gold shimmer. It's very sparkly, I like this one alot too.  Great formula used 2 coats. 
 
 
OPI Tomorrow Never Dies 
OPI Skyfall Collection
OPI Skyfall Collection
Tomorrow Never Dies,  Another amazing one, my camera shot this incorrectly it's really a jewel tone royal purple with pink and blue shimmer in the mix.  The formula is great and I only needed 2 coats for full opacity. 
 
 
Overall, I think this is a great collection.  My absolutely wow favorites are: The Living Day Lights (over moonraker haven't tried it yet over the others in the collection) Live and Let Die, Skyfall,  The Spy Who Loved Me, You Only Live Twice and Tomorrow Never Dies
 
So what do you guys think?  Which ones are you getting?

  4. This collection is mostly a hit for me. I am rocking Tomorrow Never Dies right now with the golden flake Man With A Golden Gun over it - and cannot stop looking at my nails. Misses for me in this collection are Moonraker (cannot deal with any more frosts - wore then in the 60' and hated the formulas then, still hate 'em today)...Skyfall was blaugh to me - and the glitter I did not get at all - but then am not a big glitter fan to begin with.

  11. How would you say Tomorrow Never Dies compares with your creation Peabow? Which do you personally prefer?

    They look rather similar, with pink and blue shimmers as well. Can you do a comparison swatch?

  12. I received the 007 Bond... James Bond for Christmas and my favorites were...
    •The Living Daylights
    •Casino Royale
    •Goldeneye
    •The World Is Not Enough
    •Tomorrow Never Dies
    •Skyfall
    •On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    I paired The Living Daylights with the On Her Majesty's Secret Service and I got tons of compliments on my nails. I also wore The World Is Not Enough paired with Skyfall on my toes! My 7 year-old cousin told me to paint my toenails that color! lol! Last,by bot least, I wore Casino Royale to match with my dress for my senior prom and they matched perfectly! For me, I only to apply 2 coats on my nails and I don't find the formulas too goopy either.
