O.P.I “Skyfall” Haul – Swatches & Review

Let me start off by saying: “I’m probably mega 007 late with this one.”
I want to apologize for that. But I can explain! For some odd reason my nails and cuticles decided to bail on me and now I’m left with horrible short sausages and dry as an abandoned island cuticles.

However! I just couldn’t keep these away from you: Three jaw-droppingly stunning OPI “Skyfall” polishes and I’m loving every single one of them. A truly gorgeous collection and here’s my opinion on the three I bought..

I’ve personally never been a 007/Mr. Bond fan. Something about the unchanging story line never really got to me. (Though, I must say Mr. Craig is giving me a really hard time not to watch) But then there was my brother. And OPI’s “Skyfall” Collection. Oh, and me. Together in a store. (Can you feel what’s coming?)

As we walk by the OPI stand I emotionless say: “Oh look… a Bond collection..
Quickly my brother tells me how amazing Mr. Bond is and how “Skyfall” absolutely rocked. And wait for it: He insisted that I bought at least one polish!

…..Wait, what?!

Okay, Okay I might have exaggerated a little bit when I said he “insisted”. But he definitely liked that a nail polish brand came out with a Bond collection. So I bought three, hah!

OPI’s “Skyfall” collection is a fantastic collection filled with crazy glittery shades and seriously dangerous cremes.

The colors I got are: “Live and let Die”, “Goldeneye” and “The Living Daylights”

“Live and let Die” –
A pine-teal green color with gold-green and chartreuse flecks. Ugh, Truly gorgeous.
This is so original and different. I love everything about it. It’s so good for Fall too!
I only needed 2 light coats for it to be fully opaque.

“Goldeneye” –
This is what I’d describe as a gold-yellow glitter foil galore. This is nothing like I’ve ever seen before. It’s glitter with a foil finish. In some lights a very bright yellow and in others a glittering gold. This is a winner! I did need 3 thicker coats for it to be fully opaque, though.

“The Living Daylights” –
Ah, Hexagonal glitter chunks! This is beautiful. But it is just that: Silver, Blue, Gold and Rusty bronze hexagonal glitters in a clear base. Which look beautiful over any dark base. This will be perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve! It applies quite opaque as well, I used 2 coats on my swatch-pictures.

I love these shades. I only bought these three because I already have similar colors/dupes for all the other shades in this collection.

And now I can finally stop listening to Adele’s “Skyfall” – This song has been on repeat ever since I started working on this blogpost, LOL!

OPI Polishes retail for €13,95 each and are available at Sephora and selected Dutch drugstores (www.opi.nl)

    Did they last pretty well? Love you Nikkie!

  12. I saw goldeneye on you in one of your videos, before I even saw this blog post, and I ordered it before the video was even over! I think it’s the best gold polish I have ever seen!

  13. I love Live and let Die – it is my favorite in the Skyfall collection.

  14. Roberta says:

    I have Goldeneye, The Living Daylights and The World is Not Enough. We have two colours the same! Thanks for this swatch. It’s funny, I’m not much of a Bond fan either and I did pick up Goldeneye because I just love any gold nail polish. Then I decided to pick up the other two. I have seen the movie and I enjoyed it. So funny! You may want to check it out. Your brother thinks the same way I did though. It’s part of a Bond collection, and it’s the 50th anniversary. Got to be part of this :)

  15. maria says:

    gawd, i want them all.
    hey, i actually do check your blog often, im a fan from puerto rico,
    you are bursting with talent, it’s insane haha
    i always check to see what products youve used or any reviews ;)
    i just dont comment ever <_<
    so…. you DO write for people!

    Oh my god. I saw this beautiful collection at the Sephora in Utrecht and I SO regret it now that I didn’t buy any of it! I kinda want the golden nail polish so bad. *facepalm*

    And btw, I personally hated James Bond movies.. But my best friend dragged me to the cinema to see Skyfall. And I hate to admit it, but the movie was pretty awesome! (I also only wanted to see it because of Mr. Craig. He looks much better as James Bond.)

  17. Nikki says:

    they’re all so beautiful!
    love your videos. xo, n

  18. Carlijn says:

    Ik heb Golden Eye nodig. Echt. BTW qua finish doet hij me erg denken aan de koperen nagellak van Catrice in het huidige assortiment, als je die nog niet hebt: weet zeker dat je die ook geweldig vindt.

  19. Jessica says:

    I have Goldeneye. So gorgeous! Thanks for the review:)

  20. kia says:

    the gold and glitter are to die for! love them!

  21. Kendra says:

    Goldeneye kicks butt…especially on you! I bought Live and Let Die too but I don’t think it looks that great on me, even though I love the color. :(

  22. Nina says:

    i love this collection of OPI, gorgeous colours!

  23. Brynne says:

    I have Live and Let Die and On Her Magesty’s Secret Service. Both are amazing
