Live and Let Die

The Skyfall Collection from OPI is here! I received some of the collection yesterday, and I fell in love. These colours are gorgeous, I can't wait to try all of them out. From the swatches I've seen already, Live and Let Die was the shade that initially caught my eyes, so I had to try that one out first.


The formula of this polish is fantastic, almost a one coater, but I did need the second to make an opaque, streak-free finish. The formula is very thick and creamy, but still very easy to work with. I also found that this polish dried pretty quickly, always a plus!


This shade is a deep, deep green, leaning towards a black. This polish has the same property that I love in other dark colours like OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark, an almost black, but still very unique. This polish combines a beautiful dark green with golden micro shimmers. 


This polish comes in the Skyfall Mini Set called "The Bondettes", which is such a cute name! Even with the smaller brush size, I found it easy to paint my nails evenly. The smaller size is great to test out the polishes, and with the amount of polish I own, I hardly ever finish an entire bottle!

The Skyfall Collection will be hitting salons in October, so keep your eyes peeled! Let me know what shades from this collection you want me to review next :)

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review.

      OPI is a bit expensive, but it isn't too bad in North America. This shade is lovely, isn't it? :)
